Attended a 70th birthday party and stayed just one night. Beautiful setting and very well kept gardens. Billy was really lovely and made us all very welcome. Nice bar area. Room lovely and modern but with a warm friendly feel to it. Very comfortable bed and lovely crisp bed linen. Party was fantastic - great food, great entertainment. Nothing was... More

I'm a regular guy, and I like regular things! When I came across the Arden House, I was no longer expecting my usual standards of hotels. I was simply stunned by the view and the pleasantness of the staff. This hotel not only has very comfy beds but has an amazing multistage bathroom! Perfect for showering early in the morning...

Stayed here for 2 nights recently and was very pleasantly surprised by the lovely bedrooms which have just been refurbished and updated. Hopefully the rest of the hotel will gradually turn from its current dated decor into something more modern. Billy was extremely welcoming and nothing seemed too much trouble. Great to have free wifi everywhere that's a real bonus.... More

Just returned from two nights stay, what a lovely place. The views are great, the hotel is a relaxing, lovely and welcomming place. The rooms were spacious and spotless, everything you could ask for in the room, and nothing is too much trouble for Billy. He is very hospitable made us feel so welcome, hotel is a credit to him....

Yesterday afternoon 26 oldies celebrated in style at the Arden House; an 86th birthday party. Billy couldn't have more accommodating; he let the younger ones take over the conservatory to decorate exactly as we wanted and he was on hand if required. The afternoon buffet tea was perfect and the delicious homemade strawberry tarts disappeared within a couple of minutes!... More

Spent a weekend at this hotel some years ago, but now the rooms have been updated and are really clean and comfortable with great on suite. Breakfast was also good standard, and we also had a evening meal which was really good. Billy and his wife were grate hosts and would definitely recommend

At lunchtime, on Christmas Eve 2013, our family of eighteen enjoyed a great lunch in the Conservatory at the Arden House Hotel, Kirkcudbright, Scotland, The tables were nicely laid out in a row, it was warm and the ambience was enhanced by discreet background music, and on such a sunny day there was lovely view from the windows. The service... More

We had a meal here a while ago and the food was really bad. Recently we heard that the standards had gone up so decided to spend a birthday meal here. We were thoroughly disappointed. Everything tasted bland and as if it was straight from the microwave. Badly cooked food and the staff weren't overly friendly, that's what you get... More

We attended a family anniversary lunch here and we were hoping it would be a lot better than a family wedding we had here 5 years ago. The location wins it for the Arden House but the food is disappointing, if they have a Chef I don't know what they do apart from hitting the button on the microwave. The... More
