The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble.

My wife and I were greeted by a very friendly receptionist – probably the best thing about the Solway Lodge Hotel! Her friendliness appeared most genuine, although mostly defending a lost cause.

Stayed for 2 nights for our sons wedding. Attentive & considerate staff made the whole stay very special. All the wedding guests commented on the quality of the food from breakfast to the wedding meal -all excellent. 28 years ago we celebrated our own wedding here and it was wonderful to return with our son and enjoy the same facilities.

They pointed me in the right direction for walking and cycling and advised on transport to the wedding I had come to attend. The room I had was a single and... More

We ate here today (15/11/15) and we were very pleased indeed. The entire family had a clean plate by the end. The deserts were fantastic also. I recommend the Sunday roast. Big shout to the young waitress too, great service. Well done to all. We will return.
