What a delightful stay. The Lodge offers B&B accommodation with a Country House feel. Our room was large with period decorations and a fantastic shower room (bathroom) also decorated with decorative plates and prints. The sitting rooms plus with the warmth of the fire, were very pleasant. The enthusiasm of the staff was brilliant. The breakfast was grand. An added...

Along with many others we used these overnight facilities for the weekend of the wedding we attended at Dumfries House. The rooms have been restored to high standards, the breakfast was excellent and we particularly enjoyed strolls in The Dumfries Estate. Having everything in one venue made for a relaxed, enjoyable and memorable experience. The local staff also do a...

Came with a friend for the amazing firework display with supper in the main house. Fab room 2 - although twin beds would have been better, but super comfy bed and pillows.

The Dumfries House estate is a must-see when visiting this part of Scotland, and staying at the Lodge makes a memorable visit even more complete.

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.
