Last minute booking for the last night of our two week Scotland holiday and this was just what was needed. Cosy, no fuss, no frills, just lots of warm hospitality, great value food, fab real ale, in a lovely setting. Wish we had discovered this earlier in the week. Think this place may currently be for sale, but hope when... More

We spent the night at Kenmuir Arms, lovely room, 3 course dinner just as good as we remembered it from our last visit, breakfast filled us up and was served with a smile! Nice quiet location, and very friendly owners and guests! Thanks Alison and Paul, not to forget the four new resident ducks! Hope to see you soon!

This place is great for whomever happens by, but it is a must for walkers. Super affordable, wonderful food, good bar, lovely accommodations. It will set you up... More

We found the Kenmuir on our first visit to the area last Easter (2014) and enjoyed it so much we returned on this holiday. We ate in the bar with out 4-year-old as the dog is (quite rightly) not allowed in the restaurant. Food is good and reasonably priced; landlord very friendly and they have real-ale on tap. Menu could... More

We've just returned from a two night stay at the Kenmuir Arms Hotel, New Luce. We were walking part of the Southern Upland Way. For anyone looking for accommodation on the Portpatrick - New Luce section of the walk, we would thoroughly recommend the Kenmuir Arms Hotel. Food and accommodation were excellent - very homely. The owners couldn't have been... More

We stayed for two night's at The Kenmuir Arms and it was a very pleasant surprise. The hotel is superb value; we payed £60 per room per night b&b for a double room which was small but sufficient with a small en-suite. The rooms and the hotel are decorated in a traditional style which suites the building and the village.... More
