Staff very welcoming, unfortunately we wanted to sit in bar area for lunch but no radiators on and it was freezing cold. We moved to dining room which was slightly warmer. Atmosphere was lifeless, no music, keeping voices low as others were eating, it was an unpleasant atmosphere. Food was average but at least it was hot which is more... More

Creaky old hotel with a great comfy lounge where Burns wrote his poems no doubt whilst the fire was roaring. Staff very helpful and chatty. The hotel is placed perfectly for great walking and sight seeing right from the door. I suppose the rooms could do with a bit updating as they're a bit tired and the menu although delicious... More

Although this hotel is somewhat run down (the bedrooms are not modern) and in need of a facelift, it is a very cosy place to stay. The Robbie Burns room has an old style coal fire which when combined with the old style chairs feels like you are "at home". The staff make the place. They are all friendly, and... More

Very enjoyable evening meal with my husband and two boys aged 17 and 12. The waitress was lovely, very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The food was plentiful and delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, the only downside was the lack of atmosphere in the restaurant, too bright lights and a bit like eating in someones living room.

The staff were friendly, welcoming and very helpful especially when I had a severe bout of sickness and diarrhoea in the early hours of the morning following our afternoon arrival. This required the attention of a doctor . The bedroom we were allocated had dated furniture and furnishings and limp, tired bedding and bedlinen. There was a smell of damp... More

Staying locally Place looks a bit run down. However the lad was very hospitable and our family meal was very nice in the beer garden. No complaints at all, we would definitely come back. The children's menu was great with lovely healthy option and the beer garden was secure so the kids could run about without disturbing those inside

This budget hotel offers a significantly below par experience. We only stayed two nights on a work trip, in a room with a tremendous smell of damp, broken skirting boards with very exhausted decor. We were not expecting The Ritz, but basic customer service and the ability to sleep are essentials, but neither were possible, making this an unsuitable option... More

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.
