We arrived in Dumfries during a heat wave and our rooms were quite warm, but upon request, the staff provided us with a fan to help keep the room cool. The rooms are spacious and with the large 4 poster beds, they have a nice style to them. The location is right across from the train station, which was very... More

I always read reviews on Trip Advisor and have learned to take them with a grain of salt. I find that people complain about the most trivial things like 'the room decor was outdated' or 'there were only 2 complimentary shortbread cookies in my room....' This review is based on what matters most to me when staying in a hotel;... More

Friendly reception on a late rainy arrival. Lovely room, 4-poster,yet basic. Very clean. Went down to eat at the Courtyard Bistro about 7.45pm, seated promptly...waited 10 mins for a menu :/ .....ordering a bit problematic with my being gluten-free, but opted for the vegetable Moroccan tagine with jasmine rice instead of the couscous. After a 45 MINUTE (!!!!) wait, what... More

Stayed for two nights at this hotel. Had Room 23 which was more than adequate space wise. Lovely comfortable bed. The room however urgently needs to be redecorated. The housekeeping was very, very poor. Our room was not hovered on the second day and we found that the towels were not changed - despite leaving one in the bath to... More

The room was a bit dated but we didn't mind. The wardrobe was in a... More

We have stayed at many Best Western hotels, and bordered by a main road and a railway expected this Station hotel to be noisy, especially as we had a room overlooking the railway station. On the contrary it is a quiet and relaxing place to stay. With a wonderful ambience, good food, and very helpful staff, who are second to... More

My first impression was positive...checked in by very pleasant lady, room adequate, plenty of hot water...however as my room was on the station side I got virtually no sleep until the early hours, due to trains, buses and guests slamming doors. ! I asked for a quieter room but there were none available even though I had requested a quiet... More
