Our rooms were comfortable and beds very good. There is a Marco Pierre White restaurant as part of the hotel. The food and the breakfast there were excellent. Difficult to find using a postcode in the sat nav as it also covers a large rural area, we got lost, so best follow the directions on the website or in Trip... More

Possibly one of the quietist hotels I have ever stayed in. Good efficient check in and check out and room was good as well. All fairly new so no issues there. Did not eat in the hotel at night as it looked a bit posh for a family but staff were friendly and helpful in the morning at breakfast. Plenty... More

Yet again we found ourselves staying here as it's the only decent Hotel in Dumfries. Even though the Hotel has changed hands i can honestly say it has not effected it's standards. The rooms are still clean and well kept. The only slight quibble i have is that no -one ever seems to stay on the bar. Whenever you want... More

We stayed for a night en route to Edinburgh from the (English) Midlands. The hotel is in a lovely spot, bolted onto one of the many Victorian buildings of a former mental hospital! The website photos make it look like a 1990s corporate HQ for a third-rate IT company, but it's much nicer than that. The room was great, the... More

Booked a two night B&B and evening meal deal. The location of the hotel set in the grounds of the Critchon is extremely nice and very pleasant to wander round if you get the chance. Our room was very nice, clean well furnished and looked out over the gardens. Good toiletries provided in an adequate en suite shower room. Ate... More

A married couple in our mid-thirties, we stayed in this hotel on 26th July 2014 to attend a wedding in the area. From the moment we checked in to our room, 210, it was unbearably hot - whilst I got ready I had to keep cooling myself down with a cold towel. There is clearly a problem with air circulation...

We arrived at the hotel very late (after midnight) but this was not a problem. There was plenty of parking and reception was excellent given the time of night. Rooms were very big and exceptionally clean. Breakfast was a combination of cereals and cooked and very tasty. For trips between England and Scotland this is a perfect stopping point.

We booked this the night before we stayed as a stop over on way back from Scotland. Booked on late rooms. Got an exec suite which slept the family. Setting was lovely and hotel room nicely fitted. Only downside was it was a warm evening and aircon didn't work so it was very warm, uncomfortably so. I mentioned in morning... More

I've stayed here a few times on business and think the change to Holiday Inn a backwards step. I am currently sat in the bar and finding the service charming but way too slow. Having eaten in the much-promoted Marco Pierre White restaurant a couple of weeks ago I'd have to say I'm surprised he'd put his name to it... More
