Spouse had an evening dental emergency, lost a crown. Host called multiple dentists and arranged an appointment for the next morning at 9:00. Thank you! Problem solved. Parking can be a bit challenging, especially if you have larger than a compact car. The gravel drive runs parallel to the B and B and adjacent dwellings. So, with barely the width...

We stayed one night at the Glenaldor B&B. The room was very clean and quiet. The breakfas was excellent and they even offer a vegetarian option. Dumfries town centre is a short 10 minutes walk from the B&B and the town is very pleasant.

Owner was very friendly and polite, even though we turned up two hours late (due to traffic). The rooms were lovely and everything you might need was catered for. Beautiful house and location, just a short walk to the town and easy to find. Excellent breakfast! Highly recommended.

Had a very comfortable nights sleep, great choice of cooked breakfast as well as cereals, fresh fruit and yogurt, loved it, thank you very much. Would definitely recommend and would visit again!

Glenaldor Guest House has never come up on any search engine I have used before but I did discover it the other week on Booking.com. I tend to use Premier Inn most of the time but the Premier Inn is not consistent with it's pricing. If you try and stay at a premier Inn anywhere, for more than a couple...

Up for the weekend to visit the 'Garden of Cosmic Speculation' , Glenaldor House is nicely located on a quiet terrace just outside the town centre. Quiet spot, no road noise, just a few gulls screeching a bit, nothing too intrusive! Room large and bed comfy. Great breakfast in a small but more than adequate dining room. Good, friendly service...

Lovely place to stay. My room was much larger than anticipated and spotless. David and staff were wonderful - quick to respond to any query and the perfect mix of friendly and professional. Great breakfast service as well. Would highly recommend.

This is a very stylish property retaining many elegant features. Although the garden now overlooks some modern warehousing, it is within easy walk of the town centre. It is located within a terrace, with a cul de sac road inbetween that and the gardens. This is the prime parking. The room was large and very well furnished (e.g. proper storage...

we spent a lovely couple of days at Glenaldor House with family, the rooms were fantastic, and the family room was massive with great furnishings, we were welcomed on arrival and shown around our rooms, the area was about a 10 min easy walk to the centre of town, there was a lovely garden at the front of the house...
