We were very well looked after by Terry and Lynne Hawkins who made a real effort to ensure we enjoyed our stay with them. We had one of their smaller twin ensuite rooms; clean and fresh, with comfortable beds.

Room was clean and good quality, service was great giving support to help us on our journey north. Wifi good signal which is necessary when travelling. The guesthouse itself had plenty of space so you don't feel intimidated or 'in the way'. Great refreshing experience.

Not only were Terry and Lynn incredibly hospitable, but their knowledge of Dumfries and surrounds greatly assisted me in my family history field research. The hotel is quaint and comfortable and should l find myself in this part of the world again l wouldn't think twice about staying at Huntingdon House again.

We stopped off in Dumfries to visit family who live in one of the surrounding villages and couldn't have picked a better hotel, friendly, clean, good facilities and a very tasty breakfast. Well done to Terry & Lynne, we will happily recommend your lovely hotel.

We wanted a long weekend in Dumfries to do some local touring and found the Huntingdon House by internet search. Owners Terry and Lynne run a spotless, comfortable and hospitable guest house which we could not fault. Very happy to go back and we look forward to the opportunity.

I enjoyed all my stay in this house, which once belonged to Thomas Carlyle's sister. We were beautifully wecomed on arrival, & the leavetaking was equally good. Our bags were carried up and down the stairs. The owner was painstaking in the help he gave us throughout. The room was attractive, large enough though not spacious, but with everything we...
