We enjoyed a lovely stay at the Glenaldor House on December 18.The city of Dumfries was delightful, and we loved seeing the home of Robert Burns and having a beer in his favorite pub, the Globe. At the recommendation of our host, we had a great dinner at Cavan's restaurant after our walk around town. Our room had a fireplace,...

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...
