“The most amazing place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2012

We booked a two night stay with two of our friends at Dumfries House Lodge and extended it to three nights within an hour of arriving!! We were made to feel so welcome, Mark and Lynn were just fantastic and we were shown to two fabulous rooms. My husband and I had booked room 3, which has an original four poster bed which had been brought from Dumfries House itself, The bathroom was huge with a gorgeous roll top bath, the fluffiest white towels and a whole range of Aran Aromatics to bathe in. Mark booked us in to The Stables Restaurant on the Estate for our evening meal where I could gladly dine there every evening, the staff were lovely, the food was delicious and the whole evening was topped off by a free lift back to the Lodge at the end of our meal. However, although the meal at the Stables was brilliant, nothing could match the breakfast that's made for you by Mark himself in the kitchen whilst everyone relaxes and watches him from the dining room, never again will I whisk my scrambled eggs!!!! Mark arranged for us to have a tour of the house whilst we were there, which we would thoroughly recommend. And the walks around the estate are beautiful. We will definitely be returning to Dumfries House Lodge......

Mark was the perfect host. Our bedroom was immaculate and the bathroom was huge. All the decor is so fitting of the building. We were shown how to use everything in the room (tv, coffee machine etc). Breakfast was amazing and it was lovely to sit round one table and chat over a yummy breakfast. I would without a doubt return and try to book one of the holiday cottages too!

We have just returned from a 2 night stay in this amazing, relaxing lodge, and I have to say, everything was perfect! We stayed in room 3, which is a beautiful room that has a huge, gorgeous en suite bathroom. The staff were so welcoming and friendly, and couldn't do enough for you. The breakfast is also superb and sets you up for a great day exploring Dumfries house and its fabulous grounds. We have stayed in some fabulous hotels and B & B's in the past, but Dumfries lodge is without doubt, a truly superb find, and is definitely up there with the best, anywhere! We have booked again for later in the year! Can't wait!

This is a true home from home, we say home, as it does not feel like a guesthouse or hotel. The welcome is hearty, breakfasts are tasty and beautifully presented, and the decoration and furnishings is quintessentially country house, comfortable and understated. A place to kick your shoes off and relax. Should be lucky enough to visit, we thoroughly recommend the Stables Restaurant which will not disappoint.

Room Tip: Look on the website. The rooms look great and are even better when you are there.

Superb accommodation (B&B) in a fabulous setting on the Dumfries House Estate. Lovely, comfortable, tastefully decorated rooms. Mark, running the B&B was great (is great!) helpful, informative and served up truly scrumptious breakfasts, with your selection from the menu. Five stars rating as far as we're concerned.

I only had a night in this excellent new Lodge but will definitely return for a proper visit. The standard of the restoration/renovation that's been done at Dumfries House Lodge is extremely impressive. I stayed in a four poster bed in a well sized room. Adjoining the room was a huge bathroom with roll top bath tub, two basins and views across the Estate. We had to leave early to get to Glasgow Station but the manager kindly put on an early breakfast for us and was charming. I would be very happy to recommend Dumfries House Lodge.
