Very warm welcome when we arrived. Room 11 was comfortable with a king-size bed, 3 piece suite and large bathroom. Both breakfast and dinner were excellent with generous portions and varied menu with daily specials - the tagine was to die for. This hotel has character, friendly staff, good food and is value for money.

Overall we had a good short stay. Would recommend the pub for great food, service & nice atmosphere. Staff were pleasant & helpful. However...the accommodation was just OK. Would not take much to make it lovely - just basics like re-painting, new curtains, clean up mouldy grout in bathroom. Our large, sunny & reasonably clean room actually had a lot... More

Stayed the weekend, didn't know what to expect! A bit like fawlty towers!!! The food was OK! ! A bit pricey for what was served! Ordered the pasta @ £9.60 I was bitterly disappointed, the dish was very dry and tasteless, and a very small portion ( blessed relief possibly) the rooms were far from clean! Photos below! The largest... More

We used a groupon deal for a 2 night stay. Both rooms were 'run down' /drab /dingy and both bathrooms showers had lots of mould, which could be easily dealt with weekly with mould cleaner /remover. That was the worst bit. Staff were friendly, obliging and helpful. The food can either be eaten in the bar (can be noisy to... More

Stayed for 2 nights last week on a Groupon deal. The bed was very comfortable and though the rooms could do with a bit of modernisation you couldn't fault the service from Krisztian and the lady who served breakfast. Both friendly and helpful. The bar has a relaxed atmosphere and there are plenty of walks to do in the surrounding... More

This is basic accommodation in a good location. More an Inn than a hotel. The gardens were pleasant and well maintained, The staff are friendly and the breakfast meets all the usual standard fare. There was a restaurant and bar meals the food was ok .....but nothing special. I wish there was something really positive to say but overall I... More

Oh dear, oh dear I wonder if I was in another hotel or different time zone to those rating this anything other than terrible. Words cannot describe... If the fact the place needs a good scrub or the smell of stale smoke doesn't put you off or even the 'under-welcoming' greeting at reception (sure I'd seen our moment acted out... More

Our mountain bike group (23 of us) booked dinner for two nights here. Excellent menu. Excellent service. Very attentive manager in Krisztian. Food was delivered on time and was great quality and great value. The bar had a good selection of beers and plenty of single malt whisky. Lively atmosphere and, if the weather had been conducive the garden is... More

Stayed two nights on Groupon deal (£89 for couple for two night's B&B). Room 11 is huge with comfy, old fashioned settee and armchair. Wardrobe and chest of drawers also very old but looked to be good quality, though carpet had seen better days. Plentiful selection of tea and coffee with small bottles of water replenished each day (a nice... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our 2 night stay. We used it as a base to explore all round the borders and Dumfries. The bar was excellent with a very whisky knowledgeable barman, and the food was really enjoyable and well made that we never ate anywhere else while we were there. The room it's self was clean and...
