An enthusiastic and welcoming staff, comfortable bed and good facilities, and an amazingly substantial and appetising breakfast which will last you all day if you have room for it all. Excellent choice of restaurant menu should you want it. The drinks were good too. And a fuel station right next door! What more do you could you ask for. We... More

Previous experiences previous owner were not great so when I came my expectations were low. But I was amazed at the transformation. The food was amazing. The mac and cheese is Delicious and big portions.The kids enjoyed their lunch. The servers are so friendly. This is now the only place I'll eat when I visit.

What a gem. Great food. Great service. Just what we needed on the drive from north to south. Definitely recommend. Steaks were very well cooked, delicious peppercorn sauce. Fish and chips were great too.

I went here with a friend on Saturday 11/04/2015. The place was really busy which is always a good sign. Once seated our orders were taken and the food delivered to our table without any delay. The starters of creamy mushrooms and potato shells with bacon and Lockerbie cheddar were really nice and both were served with a freshly chopped... More

I enjoyed my five day stay and was impressed with the helpful manner of all staff. The bar food was excellent and there are good seating arrangements. The bedroom was comfortable, immaculately clean and well serviced. The wi-fi worked well. Overall this hotel represents great value and a pleasant welcoming stay.

What a very lovely place - the service from both the owner and his staff couldn't have been kinder, the food was excellent and the ambiance couldn't be bettered. We arrived with a little baby and they were totally hospitable towards him too - overall we couldn't ask for more.
