We needed to visit Dumfries as an emergency on 18th July, The Cairndale was able to offer us a room, with breakfast at an excellent rate. Our double room had everything you could ask for, right down to bottled spring water(not that Scottish water isn't pure enough). The staff were a credit to the hotel, from check-in to room attendants,... More

Stayed at this hotel on a 3 day golf trip which was really well organised by the hotel. Considering the price, the food was fairly good. My only slight grouse was that my room, which was facing the Solway, was subjected to really loud seagull noise at about 1.30 each morning. Presumably a local business was putting out rubbish at...

Thank you for your very positive feedback following your recent golf trip. I was sorry to hear about the disturbance caused by the seagulls. The seagulls have been particularly noisy in the past week and we're already planning on how to alleviate the problem next year during the nesting season. I should of course point out that the "patter" on... More

My husband and I spent a very welcome short break at the Cairndale Hotel in Mid-July. The Reception staff were very welcoming, hats off to Douglas, and the atmosphere of the hotel was very pleasant. Our room was lovely, with comfortable furnishings, tea and coffee, a fruit plate, etc to welcome us on arrival. We had booked Dinner Bed and... More

I booked this trip through 5pm at a great price. The hotel is perfectly situated for exploring the local area and has good leisure facilities. The rooms are a bit dated and the breakfast was ok but the staff more than make up for this and were warm and friendly

Stayed two nights in a twin room whilst on business. Old hotel but very comfortable. Buffet breakfast was excellent as were the pool, sauna and jacuzzi facilities. Room was a little hot but no real complaints and would return for sure

I went with friends from a golf society for a 3 night break to this hotel handy for the golf courses we had booked to play. This is a 3 star hotel so the rooms were nothing special but they were clean and comfortable. We were on a golf trip tariff and paid only about £280 for 3 rounds of... More
