bed & Breakfast Dumfries

Rivendell has quality accommodation and is a striking and thoroughly unique Charles Rennie Mackintosh inspired Arts and Crafts Mansion dating from 1924. We are situated less than a mile from Dumfries town centre and its numerous shops, pubs and restaurants but within easy access to the main A75 trunk road and local railway station.

You can book our accommodation on-line or if you have any special requests or requirements do it the old fashioned way and telephone us - you may be lucky - even the smartest computer won't negotiate a deal and certainly won't give a discount - but with direct contact we just might!

Dumfries Railway Station is only a ten minute walk from the bed & breakfast and has good links to Glasgow, Carlisle, Gretna Green and surrounding towns and villages. You can check the weather in Dumfries and the best times to visit the region throughout the year. Rivendell is a popular bed and breakfast in Dumfries and has acquired a 4 star rating from the AA and Visit Scotland for its accommodation in Dumfries. Rivendell bed and breakfast is also surrounded by quality golf courses. Restaurants are easily accessible and a members of staff are always at hand to guide you to the best places to eat in Dumfries.
