Booked 2 nights in late July in order to get to the commonwealth games. Hotels in Glasgow were all at very silly prices and although this hotel is 70 miles from Glasgow we were in the park-and-ride in 65 mins. Very friendly welcome, spotless new room, nothing too much trouble in this family run small hotel. Nice dining room with... More

Stayed 6 nights in excellent ground floor room - no 10. Clean, modern, comfortable. Jean, Alec, Brian and the Team run an excellent, helpful, friendly family business....My only downside was the repetitive menu. The food upside was - every meal was tasty and most enjoyable. A great holiday. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone.

The complimentary toiletries where tiny sachets and useless. Hot water bath tap dribbled out. Cobwebs and dust in room. 4ft high weeds in garden. Part of garden... More

What a lovely hotel, perfect for a stopover when travelling to the north of Scotland. Nice room, clean with all the required facilities. Lovely bar and dining area, I didn't have dinner, but it seemed very popular with locals both at lunch and evening. Friendly staff and a beautifully cooked breakfast.

Just stayed for 1 night, but what a friendly place, everyone was so nice and helpful. Room was spacious and light. Food was excellent (we had evening meal and breakfast) even the locals made you feel welcome. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Stayed here on our way to Perth. Hearty welcome. Rooms were old-style but charming and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant at night - wide choice and good. No real ale in the bar but we failed to find a real pint anywhere in Lockerbie. Breakfast excellent. Wi-fi ok in room.
