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.

Lovely hotel with historical roots, yet offers modern amenities in a beautiful and quiet location. Friendly and helpful staff delivering excellent service and delicious food. Walks by the river watching the Kingfisher and the salmon leaping were a treat. Clean and comfortable room looking out over extensive estate. We came for mountain walking, but will also be back for golf... More

Clean rooms and comfortable beds, in quiet surroundings Nice log fire in ground floor reception hall. Bar could have more atmosphere appeared cold and uninviting. Restaurant and food was excellent with a good choice from the... More

I haven't stopped telling friends and family about this beautiful hotel. It is a perfect "period" hotel with heaps of character and scenery. The staff are friendly, the food was great and the accommodation was so comfy, we will definitely be coming back again soon hopefully. We stayed there for a birthday celebration, just as a couple, the room was... More

The room was very basic and the view horrendous - a brick wall.However before looking at the wall you had to get past the muck and cobwebs on the outside of the windows. It would appear that these were last cleaned when the hotel was built in 1938.Despite this the food was very nice and the staff pleasant, however because... More

I can see why this hotel advertises weddings as the scenery is idyllic. The food was exceptional as was the service. The rooms were very clean and my bed was huge and very comfortable. The only gripe that I have is:- When the staff are taking the drinks through to the restaurant, please do not put your fingers on the... More

Really atmospheric hotel with great friendly staff. We were given a very warm welcome upon arrival and directed to a large and well furnished room with a great view of stunning countryside and our visit was further enhanced by the discovery of a full size snooker table! Dinner and breakfast were very tasty. We would love to go back.
