I stayed here one night whilst visiting friends in the town. The staff are all excellent, very friendly and efficient. The evening meal was very good. The room and its ensuite were not the largest but as I was travelling alone, it felt perfectly adequate. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. I would stay again without...

Had an excellent meal here for a reasonable price. Don't eat out very much in our own town so this is the first time we have eaten here for quite a few years. I believe there are two enthusiastic young chefs cooking here now and doing really well..There is good selection of food on the ordinary menu and Chefs specials... More

This hotel was a surprise find, the room was spacious with a comfy bed. The bathroom appears modern in decor compared to the room. The staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was acceptable and served quickly. My only niggle was small tea cups and bath towel in the room, if these were improved I'd be giving it a 5.... More

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
