We stayed at the Holiday Inn, formerly the Aston Hotel for a weekend in June and we're very disappointed. The hotel was clean and the room was quite nice, although uncomfortably hot, but the main issue is that the staff are wholly incompetent. We booked online and even though our reservation clearly stated we had already paid, our card was... More

Hotel accommodation block is new and is attached to an old sandstone building. The accommodation has been well designed. My wife and I stayed in a king room. The en suite had a shower rather than a bath tub. The shower was powerful and the bathroom extractor fan was effective in stopping the room from steaming up. The bedroom was... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn en route to the Lake District. The hotel has recently changed hands so we were able to avail of a 'try us out' rate which included breakfast. The hotel is positioned a short walk from Dumfries town centre and children's play park in its own grounds complete with beautiful church. It was lovely to... More

On arrival I was greeted by Mel, the General Manager. She made me feel very welcome and she is clearly a true proffessional. I was upgraded to an executive room which was just perfect. A nice sofa, large television, pristine bathroom with complimentary toiletries. I had free internet access which was really easy to access. I went to the bar... More

Stopped here on a business trip on the way back from Glasgow. On first impression you do think, "how the hell did they get planning permission for that......???"....with a modern glass and chrome extension to an existing sandstone building. However, once you have found the cunningly concealed entrance, you realise this is definitely not your standard Holiday Inn. Set in... More

We stayed here for a night on our way back from Scotland to Leeds. the hotel had only been a H. Inn for 3 weeks. The rooms were good but not typical H Inn Style, but no complaints. Actually the walk in shower was brilliant. However, the hotel has a Marco Pierre White restaurant (Wheelers of St James), Food, service,... More

From the moment we contacted the hotel to book to the moment we checked out this hotel was brilliant! Myself and my partner visited the hotel as a base for looking at wedding venues and stayed for 2 nights. We ate at the Marco Pierre White restaurant which was lovely and the service was great, we also had breakfast with... More

This hotel changed ownership after we booked it on Classic Britian to the Holiday Inn but it apparently made no difference as the hotel was as per the ratings we already had, very good. The general manager Mel leads from the front and as a relative newcomer to the hotel had already made her mark. The hotel runs well and... More

Just came home from a 2 night break at The Aston Dumfries Holiday Inn and my husband and I had a first class time. The staff were amazing and they could not do enough to make sure your stay was enjoyable. The food, bedroom and views were great. Yes, the room was a bit hot, but we didn't go on... More
