Spent a couple of nights here, selected based on the TA feedback. No surprise Glenaldor is the top rated accom in Dumfries. First class. Luxuriously appointed room and an excellent breakfast. No parking issues whatsoever despite some comments to the contrary.

Me and my partner stayed here for the weekend while we were in the area. Room was warm and very clean couldn't ask for more. Only a 5 minute walk into town and close to train station. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone.

This is such a lovely place to stay if your travels take you into the Dumfries area. The owner, David, is the most helpful, friendly guy you could ever want to meet as we hit a few snags en route and needed a soft place to land. The hotel provides a hearty breakfast served on the first floor just off...

Stayed for 1 night at this very good B&B. Room clean, beds comfortable and a good breakfast. The property is situated along a quiet cul de sac and our room faced over the front was quiet and a good nights sleep is possible here. Certainly can recommend.

Perfect Location, beautiful clean room & big bathroom. The shower was lovely and the beds very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and you could pick your choices the night before. The host, David, was so accommodating and helpful - helping with directions, printing boarding passes, calling a taxi. Cute little garden we could sit and enjoy a glass of wine....
