Rivendell is a wonderful characterful house with great sized rooms and a warm welcome. We only stayed one night as we were travelling around Scotland, but everything was spotlessly clean, with a good size en-suite and four-poster bed. There was a great choice at breakfast and the porridge followed by very tasty Scottish breakfast more than set us up for...

We stayed for one night on a Friday, the Rivendell was fully booked. Our rom was £59 for the night. Though the property faces the road it was very quiet, the bed was comfy and the room very clean and well equipped with vintage style furniture and one of the biggest arts and crafts fireplaces I've seen. After a good...

Booked for a 1 night stay for a reasonable rate. First impressions very good , nice building and interior. Biggest disappointment was the mattress, it had to be the noisiest we have ever slept on. Every turn woke us both up and we got up feeling tired. Breakfast was very good as was the service

Stayed for 1 night on way back home after weekend in Glasgow. I found the hotel on booking.com but then booked direct on their own webpage. Easy to find just over a mile from centre of Dumfries. Got a warm welcome & the communal areas & room were really clean & didn't feel like a B&B. We walked into Dumfries...

The room I was in was very good value for money, the shower room was very clean but dated with a shower which could do with a bit power behind it. Staff were very welcoming and the breakfast chef who coupled as the waiter served a good breakfast very quickly. The building needs a fresh coat of paint externally and...

I booked this lovely B&B last minute as a stop over for my works Christmas night out. the room was spotlessly clean, comfortable with all the usual extras inc. will definitely book again. Large car park to the back of the house making parking easy. Owner was very polite and helpful.
