we were very lucky to be gifted our break at Dumfries house lodge and we cannot thank our family enough for this. From ringing the doorbell at the lodge we experienced the excellent sevice given by staff, even though Mark was off duty and expecting visitors he took time to welcome us to the lodge. Room 1 where we stayed was front facing overlooking fields very peaceful and tranquil considering your were just off the main road, the room is very tastefully furnished,and very comfotable luxury we have never experienced before, and has everything you need for your stay.Lousie and the other lady in the diningroom(sorry did`nt get her name) both made guests very welcome and cooked delcious breakfasts for everyone, they can cook for me any day.Overall the lodge is very tastefully furnished keeping in the period of the estate. We hope to be able to stay at the lodge sometime in the future.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Dumfries House Lodge was officially opened by HRH The Duke of Rothesay, Prince Charles on 4th April 2012. Sitting on the edge of 2,000 acres of the Dumfries House estate and only a few hundred metres from Dumfries House itself, Dumfries House Lodge is an exclusive country Guest House offering luxury accommodation. Built in 1750 and in use a few years prior to the completion of Dumfries House, the ‘Garden Cottage’ as it was known in the 18th century, became the Factor’s house and remained so for over 200 years. We encourage our guests to think of their stay as a home-from-home and to make good use of our facilities during their stay. ... more less
