Me and my boyfriend stayed here last week and really enjoyed it ! The room and service we received was excellent for the money we paid. On the night we ate in the hotel and the meal was really nice :) I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Have been before but was disappointed with room and standards. However this time the room was small but well laid out with co ordinate furnishings. Nice shower room too. Breakfast was fine.a huge improvement,so would use again and recommend for value for money small hotel. Thanks to Ian and staff for their hospitality.

We stayed for one night in a double room which we got for £49 from the hotels own site.

We got married on NYE at the famous blacksmith's shop and had our evening meal/celebration at the Solway Lodge. From start to finish the staff were amazing, particularly Fiona and Karen, both the most friendly and efficient people I have had the pleasure of dealing with. The food was good and came out on time (given we didn't pre-order) for... More

We used this Hotel for a stop over when travelling to deepest Scotland. We gathered from the website that the hotel was used for weddings and were a little worried that this may impact on our stay. However on the night we stayed it appeared to be free of any groups. We did not arrive at the hotel until after... More
