Wonderful place to stay, as good a B&B as I have stayed in, very clean, decorated to a high standard, fantastic breakfast, comfortable bed and a few little extra touches like the Nespresso machine in our room. Bernie provides a warm welcome and was very helpful in providing advice on where to go/eat etc.

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Glenaldor House. We upgraded to a deluxe room and it was absolutely beautiful. Large room and bathroom, bed so comfortable and immaculate. The house is so amazing and Hibernate the owner is so friendly and helpful and make the most amazing breakfast. Location is great near to the station and about 15 minutes walk where there are plenty of shops, restaurants and bars. I would strongly recommend Cavens Arms to eat its lovely.

We broke our journey to Belfast in Dumfries at the Glenaldor - a very good decision! It is a stunning victorian property and Bernadette is the perfect host - even in these difficult times, nothing was too much trouble. The room was large, spotless and comfortable; breakfast was excellent and very filling. Our only regret is that we weren't staying longer.

The hotel is a short walk from the station and the town centre is 5-10 minutes away. Breakfast is ample and set us up for the day. Dumfries and Galloway is a beautiful area for sightseeing. Parking is available in a nearby road, but loading/unloading is possible from the front door.
