Really pleased with this hotel, we did not stay in the hotel but had an excellent meal at the reception. The bar staff where fantastic throughout the entire reception and very accommodating. If I am ever in Lockerbie again I would seek this hotel out. I could not speak more highly about the venue.

Traveling from Seattle on our Ireland-U.K. odyssey, we drove to Lockerbie, Scotland, mainly to research my husband's family. Based on Tripadvisor reviews we selected the number 1 choice for lodgings in Lockerbie, the Townhead Hotel. We initially booked two nights but had to change this within 48 hours of our stay, to a stay of just one night. Despite a... More

The staff at the Townhead Hotel could not have been more welcoming, helpful and friendly. The room was huge, with a vast bathroom, very clean and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was truly excellent. Many thanks for a great way to break our journey from the Scottish highlands to the English south.

The exterior of this hotel belies what is within! Parking is off road. The owner and his team were very welcoming and helpful. The room was large, clean and and the bathroom big with a small but effective, strong shower. The bed very comfortable. The food was exceptional! There is a wide range available on the menu which would shame... More

Dear Guest, What a lovely review, and just a complete summary of everything we try to achieve here at the Townhead Hotel. Our menu is designed to hopefully take in all aspects of our customers tastes in food, and catering for vegetarian and gluten free is becoming more of a norm now, and we are always grateful when our customers...

Gorgeous meal in a very friendly restaurant. Food service was prompt, staff interaction with children in our party. Offload parking but just a few minutes walk from town centre Menu offered a good range of hot food from main meals to snacks

Stayed overnight here in July 2015. We arrived just after 9 pm, and were too late to get a meal (kitchen closes about 8.45 pm) The young lady in charge, very kindly arranged soup and sandwiches for us, which were greatly appreciated after our journey there. Had a drink afterwards, in the comfortable bar lounge. We had room 1 (apparently... More

Stopped for a night on the way to Perthshire. Room was booked as a twin but staff were happy to swap to a double. Room 6 was at the front of the hotel and over the top of the bar area. However, we didn't hear anything from the bar at night, but there was some traffic noise with the window... More

I spent four nights at this hotel, which appears to be a traditional inn which has recently undergone refurbishment. My room was modern in style and spacious, and the en-suite shower room perfectly adequate. I did comment at the end to the manager that a chair would have been welcome, and he said that several were shortly to arrive for... More
