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

We came across this gem when looking for somewhere to feed two overtired children! The staff from the offset were incredibly welcoming and helpful. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The food was lovely, well priced, tasty and generous portions. The kids menu was excellent and our four year old adored the macaroni cheese and devoured the chocolate ice cream. Overall... More

Went here for dinner without booking but we were still able to be seated. Staff were pleasant and efficient, service very good. However the place is looking a bit tired these days. The restaurant carpet needs a good clean / replace and function chairs stacked int the corner weren't ideal. Plus plastic flowers, in a glass of water? If you're... More

We stayed for 3 nights in the middle of August with our 3 young children, and had a wonderful stay. The food was excellent, the staff went out of their way to accommodate us.. The kids loved it!! A few examples of above and beyond.. Every morning waiting for us in the breakfast room was a high chair all set... More

Went here for dinner without booking but we were still able to be seated. Staff were pleasant and efficient. We both started with haggis, neeps and tatties with a cream sauce. Sorry to say, it was a bit bland and the sauce was a little watery. I had pork belly as a main course which was good and my wife... More
