My husband and I stayed here twice this year. The first time for a weekend break in March and the second for the Kirkcudbright Jazz Festival in June. This is great hotel with a good atmosphere the locals in the bar made us feel very welcome and so did the staff. We had a lovely room overlooking the main street.... More

Nice rooms shame about the hapless staff. Served soup which tasted quite frankly like dishwater and had the audacity to charge for it - first time I have ever sent food back. Throughout dinner a terrible CD played on repeat, it felt like being in a nursing home.

Having spent a week in another hotel was highly impressed by the friendly and very helpful service by all members of the hotel staff from the top down. Room was large and bed very comfortable. Great food and good prices when you consider what others are charging in the town. Work colleagues booked into other hotels came to use the... More

Living in the town locally, my family & I go to the bay regularly for meals & to the bar. The food is exceptionally good, and with my dad being a highly skilled chef & training both chefs that work in the kitchens, they do him proud making such great food. It's great value for money and good sized portions.... More

We ate here in the evening since the Selkirk was full. The place needs some attention, but the service was friendly. Some restaurant English training might help as the phrase "pint of bitter" seemed unfamiliar. We were amazed that they had no sparkly water: I had tap water. We chose soup to start, and the soup itself was delicious, home-made... More

There don't seem to be too many places to eat out in Kirkudbright. Going on external appearances your first choice would probably be the Selkirk Arms. However, when we went there we had a problem getting a table so we went for a meal to the Bay Hotel. It doesn't look quite as nice from the outside and would benefit... More

Stayed at this hotel for two nights as part of a cycling holiday. We arrived about 4.30pm and the small bar was almost full with locals and the pub seemed tired. It didn't look too welcoming, however, the staff were excellent and soon had us booked in. After the bar, we were surprised to find a comfortable and spotlessly clean... More

We stayed just for 1 night (saturday) as this was a first time. The rooms were very clean, beds comfy. The evening meal was very good & the breakfast a good start to the day. The public bar was full of life in the evening. There is a smaller room to sit & have a drink if you want something... More

Not easy to find dog friendly eating places in this area. Tourist Information sent us to the Selkirk Arms which turned us away but tried the Kirkcudbright Bay and was told we could bring the dog in as long as the three tables in the front bar were not taken. We were lucky (only 2 taken) but the meal of... More
