Ferintosh Guesthouse: A King's Lodging on a Pauper's Purse

A redbrick Victorian Sandstone, standing across from the Train depot, in a line of other Victorian B&B's and yet Ferintosh stood out. With its stain glassed entry door and lovely gardens, it sits in quiet neighborhood just a short 5 minute (if that) walk to town centre.

The rooms were well outfitted, personal safes for guests’ valuables, tea/coffee making facilities (including decaf herbal, & hot chocolate), biscuits, hairdryers, cotton buds, cotton balls, makeup remover pads, shampoo, conditioner, shower soap, face cloths, huge thick bath towels, corkscrew, TV, alarm clock/radio, and for the comfort of their guests, they provide luxurious robes in the three rooms that are not ensuite. An iron and ironing board are available, as are Scottish Ales and French Wines.

The beds were delightfully comfortable, with crisp, cool linens and properly firm pilllows. The showers were strong and plentiful hot.

Breakfast was absolutely delightful, served by a man in a Kilt, no less, the host himself! Fresh jams & marmaldes served in little pots, butter pats, Choice of fresh brewed Coffee, Decaf Coffee, Tea, Decaf Tea, several different Herbal Teas and Fruit Juices, you will not go away from his table hungry!

complimentary drams of Single Malt Whisky and chocolates in every room each night
Ferintosh Guest House is a Non-Smoking Establishment
They do provide benches and ashtrays in the garden for guests who smoke

the sound of the forest: mabie house

Wonderfully located... in the middle of nowhere... i only spent a night there _ I arrived late in the evening (and i mean very late) one day earlier than expected: i did not think I should call into my friends so unexpected. Someone recommended Mabie house... funnily enough it's the place where the following night my friends took me for dinner.

one of these old country houses turned into Bed and Breakfast: small and intimate - and quiet. a great place to recharge the batteries. And... they serve a full scottish breakfast

Cairndale Hotel

Unless you want to tramp the damp streets near Dumfries Academy - alma mater of J.M. Barrie, creator of Peter Pan - in search of a sombre B&B establishment, the only major hotel options in the town are the Cairndale and the Station Hotel. The Cairndale (pictured right), extensively redesigned, rebuilt and refurbished over the years, caters to busloads of German and Japanese tourists doing Scotland in three days. The Station Hotel, another impressively solid pile of granite, offers big rooms and a quiet bar.
