The staff are the best thing about this hotel. We stayed last week for three nights for a family wedding. Not our first choice,ship inn, the sister hotel was full. Management are refurbishing the bedrooms and we were fortunate enough to be the first guests to stay in room 12. Lovely, couldn't fault it. However, the other rooms are outdated... More

We stayed here for a weekend break. The staff were superb and very helpful. This is great for a couple of nights away. If you have kids it is a great base to visit the chocolate factory and cream of Galloway. An added bonus was the dark skies in Dumfries national park, the staff printed off directions and it was...

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
