We booked this hotel after Kirkcudbright hotels were full. Gatehouse is a lovely village and the Murray Arms is picture postcard fm the outside. The public rooms do look a little tired, as were the bedrooms (we had the family room at the top) but I understand that these new owners are trying to drive the hotel forward, which can... More

This hotel offers a very friendly and warm welcome. The staff could not be more attentive to your every need. The breakfasts are hearty and evening meals are good value. Cream teas in the afternoon are wonderful. The hotel building itself could do with a little updating but the management assure us that plans are afoot. Overall a very good... More

This is a basic hotel offering good value for money and a good welcome. The bedroom was pleasant, some of the public rooms such as the restaurant are less so. Food is old fashioned but ok. The wine list is good and service satisfactory.

The warm friendly welcome at reception was a good start to my stay at this old coaching inn. The room was pleasant enough, in a slightly retro way, and well-maintained and clean. The tea and coffee tray was generous, complete with biscuits. Arriving early, there was a problem with the television, which did not click into life until 3pm -... More

A simple, but very pleasant lunch with friends in a relaxed setting. Hotel staff were very helpful to advise and accommodate me with my coeliac diet, which can still be a stumbling block in many places. I had a gluten-free brown bread open smoked salmon sandwich. It arrived with a good amount of salmon, but I though it perhaps a... More

Despite the dreadful weather we received a warm and welcoming reception at the Murray Arms. This family run hotel is set in the centre of the lovely town ( village ??? ) of Gatehouse of Fleet, only a few miles from the Scottish coast. Even in February it is a charming place to visit and the Murray Arms makes a... More

We've been using this hotel, both as guests and diners for over ten years now, during which time it's seen a few changes of both ownership and fortunes. Last time we stayed, we found the room rather cold, this was four years ago, but we only paid £10 a night for the room anyway! Since then, the owners are working... More

The staff are helpful and the highlight of staying at this substandard accommodation. We stayed in a top floor family room, with no central heating and an over bath shower that was suitable only for small adults due to height restrictions. Bar area is dull and small and the Hotel needs a massive upgrade in terms of decor and facilities... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night only. The hotel looks great from the outside but inside is old tired looking and the corridors had a damp smell. The rooms were great, spacious and clean. The tv didn't work although the manager did everything possible to try to get it working, and offered me another room. The staff are fantastic... More

We had an excellent vegetarian meal in this hotel at a very reasonable price and served very quickly despite the fact there was a function going on. the staff could not have been more attentive or friendly. The downstairs decor was fine and comfortable though perhaps in need of some upgrading in certain areas. However we hope that the bar... More
