Another excellent stay - we are family of five, including three young kids, and found the rooms excellent, quiet and very clean. The staff are very friendly, really good people, and the Manager is very helpful, friendly and genuine. Breakfasts were great, evening meal was fine, and I would definitely recommend the Kings Arms to anyone passing through Lockerbie or... More

We have called at the Kings Arm's many times over the years for a meal and can highly recommend the food, especially the steak pie - if they were all as good as that we would order it more often! My partner recently stayed here for a night on his way home and was pleased with the accommodation too. He,... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the King's Arms, with three young children, and would recommend it if you are passing through Lockerbie. The breakfast was fantastic and the room fine, big enough, and sufficiently quiet for all of us to get a good sleep both nights. The staff are all friendly, and made a nice fuss... More

Encouraged to stop here for Sunday lunch by TA reports, lamb and beef tasteless and rather tough, plenty of veg but they too rather tasteless. The bar area was full of regulars, appreciating good value for money perhaps but we shall give Lockerbie a miss on our next visit if The Kings Arms represents 2 out of 5. Maybe we... More

I stayed here on my way to the highlands in Scotland as an overnight stay. The evening meal was really enjoyable and the staff were all very friendly. Rooms were good and well behaved dogs welcomed. Very enjoyable breakfast and reasonably priced. I'd definitely stay again.

Possibly the worst meal we have ever had in a Pub. I decided to try their home made fish cakes which must have been supplied from the freezer section of their local Tesco. My partner ordered from the "Specials" board - roast beef which looked like my dog's breakfast with the most disgusting gluppy gravy. I complained to the waitress... More

Needed an overnight stay at a location that would be easy to find at 8pm. The quaint sounding description sounded inviting. First impressions not good as while the hotel was easy to find, the parking was a garage that fitted two cars abreast and about four deep. As well as being full it would presumably mean leaving your keys with... More
