Had a one night stay here on a hotel deal of dinner, bed and breakfast. What excellent value it was! Our room overlooked the River Nith and was dual aspect making it cool in warm weather. The bed was big and very comfy and the only niggle with the room was the shower was up and down, but not too... More

Just came home and we stayed in the Dun Baeg Cottage. Fantastic drive to the actual hotel and stunning once you reach the main house. Walked in and felt right at home. No imposing reception desk just classic period stairs,doors and architecture. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or courteous which always is the first impression you get on... More

Just had a night here in the suite and we absolutely loved it! The setting is so peaceful and relaxing with nice walks all round. Very handy for exploring the local castles. The room was lovely and the staff were excellent and very accommodating! Special thanks to Emily and Alistair! We had a great time and will definitely be back.

Nice hotel pleasantly situated beside the river which can be fished for salmon and grilse. Comfortable room and pleasant attentive staff. Nice relaxing atmosphere. Additional bonus the dog came too. Food was very good and house wine quite acceptable. I'm not a wine drinker so although I liked you may not. If you want a quiet relaxing break in the... More

I got an internet deal for 2 nights with breakfast plus dinner on one evening so I hadn't expected too much despite the good reviews from previous visitors. I was more than pleasantly surprised and will get the few negatives out of the way first: 1. The 2nd floor corridor carpets were grubby and the décor is in need of... More

We had our wedding reception here on 4th of April. The staff, food and venue were perfect. The staff especially Alex can not do enough for you. We were staying over the weekend and had all the rooms for the wedding party and guests, everyone who stayed or visited on the day have all made comments as to how welcome... More

We stayed two nights at Friar's Carse in late March 2015. This historic hotel is located on the banks of the river Nith in its own estate so is quite secluded. It is well signed from the A76.There are interesting and relaxing walks along footpaths on the banks of the river. We received a friendly welcome and assistance with our... More

We found an internet deal for 2 nights at a good price. I had read previous reviews before purchasing so expected the place to be a bit dated. The building is steeped in history and is beautiful but it definitely needs a face lift. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was fine, nothing fancy just good comfort... More
