Stayed for two days and we really enjoyed our brief visit. Room (Elm) was warm and very clean, plenty of hot water etc. Staff very courteous and attentive. Evening meal and breakfast were very enjoyable and well presented. Lounge with leather settees and open log fire quite stunning. Our large dog also enjoyed this relaxing space. Lovely walks along side... More

I love this place! This is the second year we have stayed here and I'm hoping to be back again and again. The hotel is comfortable and slightly eccentric, but so friendly, homely and hospitable. My two dogs are welcomed, and blankets and bowls are provided for them in our room. The walks along the river are fantastic, and the... More

Stayed at the Friars for one night and had a good stay. Mixed feelings about the hotel as I love old, historic buildings but this one is needing a bit of tlc. The large reception area with dark oak walks and a roaring log fire is great but the less said about the room the better. Although clean, the room... More

My husband and I spent a very enjoyable two nights at this hotel. The room was quite small and in need of a wee refurbishment but it was clean and tidy. The staff were all polite and courteous. The view of the river Nith from our bedroom at the front of the hotel was like a postcard with gorgeous autumnal... More

Myself and my wife have just come back from a 2 night stay at Friars Carse. The grounds are beautiful and very quiet. The room we stayed at was spacious enough probably could have done with bringing up to date. The lobby area is beautiful and grand with its burning fire and comfy leather sofas. The only problem with the... More

This 500 year old building is situated down a long driveway away from the road. It is set in beautiful grounds / woodland and right by the river Nith. This should be an ideal place for walkers, golfers and fishermen. And if you like snooker, they have a full sized table for anyone to use. The staff were helpful and... More

We had a lovely couple of days at Friars Carse. Great food, great staff, great location, great walks around the estate along the river, great weather. We travelled down to the Mull of Galloway, and visited Logan Botanic gardens, quite a drive, but fabulous scenery.
