We stopped for a night and had breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our room was clean, tastefully decorated and with all the right facilities. We found the staff attentive and helpful. The views were fabulous from our room and the bar was cosy and welcoming. There is a seating area out the front and we had lunch and dinner in the... More

Never, ever again. The staff are so rude. A girl with curly hair took our order and she has to be the most ignorant person I've ever come across. I'm pretty sure they did something to our food as she kept looking over and talking to another girl and laughing. Will never go here again. Food is majorly over priced... More

We were on a day out in the area and, having visited the Anchor many years ago, decided to pop in again for lunch to give it another try. We ordered a sharing platter of fried seafood and a crayfish and smoked salmon salad, both of which came from the specials menu. Staff we dealt with were friendly and service... More

Just returned from another short break at the Anchor Hotel in lovely Kippford, and once again, we have well and truly re -charged our batteries. The welcome at the Anchor is second to none - all the staff without exeption are friendly, helpful and make your stay really enjoyable. The food is superb - honest and wholesome- exactly what you...

We have been to the Anchor many times before and have normally been satisfied .This time we had to fight our way to the bar for service.Food was disappointing,floors and toilets messy,we feel that standards have plummeted and the management need to be more professional rather than entertaining their cronies at the bar. In future a drink outside looking at... More

As locals we like to support our pubs and hotels by eating out a few times a month and we have had some great food and fantastic services unfortunately this wasn't the case at the Anchor. I'm sorry Trip Advisor fans but I take most reviews with a pinch of salt and have not until now felt strongly enough to... More

We were totally blown away by Kippford. We hadn’t booked, but thankfully the Anchor had one room left…and the best room too, with dual aspect views across the estuary. It is an old creaky building, and the décor is rather dated, if homely…BUT this place is a gem. It was immaculately clean, the staff were all friendly and the setting... More

Wanted to stay near Dalbeattie for the mountain biking. Staff were very friendly and helpful evening meals in the hotel were basic pub fare. Room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was huge and tasty

We stayed here for one night on 1st August with our cocker spaniel and were treated very well and really enjoyed our visit. We had an en-suite room with great views overlooking the water. Dinner was sea food chowder with lovely juicy scallops which was excellent. There was no problem with the dog in the bar area. The full Scottish... More
