We checked in here for a couple of nights as My wife and I wanted a few days in Scotland after visiting family "south of the border". My searches turned up the Friar's Carse hotel and bookings were made, hoping to give my wife a sense of something a bit more traditional than her usual fare. We arrived early evening,... More

I took my mum for a two night break. Dinner bed & breakfast. We had a whale of a time. ALL staff absolutely brilliant, down to earth and fell over themselves to ensure our stay was perfect.Even the roaming guinea fowl made us giggle and feel welcome! The surroundings are perfect and idylic for walks (and fishing if you wish).... More

Definitely not a boring box of a hotel and with larger than average rooms. Decor might be considered dated but room was clean, bed was comfortable and surrrondings made for an excellent, interesting stay.

We have just returned from Friars Carse from a weekend's break. Food was good, service was impeccable. I can't praise the staff highly enough. They were very attentive. Friars Carse delivered more than I was expecting and I would highly recommend. Décorwise - some rough edges. But if I had been around as long as this country house - I'd... More

We stayed here with a voucher given to us as a Christmas present. The weather was awful, not the fault of the hotel. We would have loved to have a walk round the grounds as they looked lovely. I did get down to the riverside before we went home. The hotel was nice, if a little tired. Our room was... More

My wife and I went for a two night break (Sunday and Monday) dinner, bed and breakfast. We got a deal on "easy-breaks.com" (although I wouldn't use them again!) It's a beautiful old building set in beautiful grounds right by the River Nith. The room double room was a decent size and the room looks like it had been recently... More

Our room was clean and warm, the bed very comfy.We ate in both evenings choosing from the bar menu..which we were allowed to eat in the dining room. The food was... More

The place, the setting, the welcoming staff, the food. All perfect! Found the place on Laterooms and thought it was a bargain. Had my French MD with me so wanted to stay somewhere a bit different and he loved it. Will definately stay here again!
