This was my first time in Scotland - and Friars Carse did her country proud! Astoundingly beatiful building and grounds, warm and welcoming staff who were helpful in every way. The rooms were comfortable and very spacious considering the age of the hotel. Lots of history and charm. The staff were amazing - very friendly - and they were always... More

We stayed at Friars Carse for 2 nights whilst attending friend's wedding. Friars Carse itself is striking, and details of it's history are presented throughout for those who are interested. It is situated within grounds that provide plenty of nature to explore and truly show off the beauty of Scotland. The room we stayed in was spacious and well kept... More

I stayed here for 2 nights as Friars Carse played host to my Mother and Step Father's Wedding Reception. The hotel itself is beautiful, steeped in history, and full of life. The staff were all extremely welcoming and attended our every need. I was one of the few people who were fortunate enough to visit rooms on all floors of... More

My family and friends were here for an an amazing wedding. The hotel staff and manager were very welcoming and friendly and made my mum's day that much more special. The hotel is full of character and history and the grounds are astonishingly beautiful, full of many different kinds of wildlife. I find the review of Garrylaw L laughable, as... More

I love Scotland and Rabbi Burns what a star. A wedding with friends, new friends and some great entertainment and a very attentive hotel; yea a couple of things went a little awry but the overall occasion was brilliant! I have run restaurants, bars and pubs for 20 odd years, and the preceding review by this character Gary Law, who... More

We went on a TravelZoo deal which was excellent value.The setting of the hotel was superb,the food was excellent & the staff were all cheerful & polite,I could certainly recommend this deal. The only negative was the housekeeping which was disappointing,a lot of dusty places.

The hotel is old and shows its age but in a welcoming , comfortable way. It is also clean, well looked after and full of character. The grounds are astonishingly beautiful and our short stay was unbelievably relaxing. Bar prices are reasonable for such an off-the-beaten-track location. But it was the food which we shall remember Friars Carse for. The... More

Set in its own beautiful grounds with the river Nith flowing through, this lovely old castle style country house was a delight. Wood panelling walls, leather Chesterfield settees old furnishings, as expected in this type of accommodation. Like many old properties this one could do with some tlc restoration on windows etc. but the important things for us were comfortable... More
