We were visiting the Commonwealth Games for several days and wanted to find some good, sensibly priced accommodation south of Glasgow. Dumfries House near Cumnock fitted the bill and was a great choice. A beautifully decorated and spacious bedroom and bathroom looked out over the delightful spacious gardens. The public areas including two lounges are also very tasteful. The service was very personable, efficient and of a high standard. The breakfasts were delicious using mainly high quality local products. There is a local railway station at Auchinleck and the surrounding countryside is of a rolling pleasant nature - with easy access to the Coast, rural Ayrshire and Glasgow. A real winner !!
- 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
