Stayed here one night after returning from a work trip to Scotland. The hotel is seconds of the M74 but it's elevated location means you cannot directly see the road. My room was clean and spacious with a patio door leading directly onto a lawn and offered stunning views of Dumfries and Galloway countryside. I ate the belly pork in... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for the occasion of my daughters wedding. The hotel was beautiful and the scenery stunning. The food was amazing and credit goes to the chef. Credit also goes to John who was helpful and friendly and made our stay memorable. However one person was rude, obnoxious and condescending and that was the manager Glen.... More

Booked a superior room for Friday and Saturday Night and it was great. Patio doors made the heat of the sun more bearable upon getting ready for my sisters wedding. Lovely spacious immaculate room.

Dear reviewer, Thank you for your review and letting us know about the child's pyjamas that had clearly fallen from a room onto the ground. The best rate is to call the hotel direct as the online travel agents are more expensive and do not include breakfast which is how you chose to make your reservation. The pound coin was... More

First impressions count and the personal welcome was impressive. We had two single rooms 9 and 10 which had been renovated and they were perfect. Very comfortable. The views are lovely and it's easy to find the hotel from the main road. There was some traffic noise. The evening meal was good though I think one course would have been... More
