My wife and I stayed here for three nights while we experienced venues at the Wigtown Book Festival - an annual must if you are a book worm! The hotel has recently changed hands but has kept the existing management team and country house style. The room, in our case room 9, was huge with a quaint but dated coloured... More

Shown to a marvellous room (No 19), large enough for a king-size bed, sofa and armchairs and a variety of free-standing desks and tables. Excellent views on three sides to the gardens and beyond them distant hills; it was wonderfully quiet. There was a complimentary decanter of sherry. A personalised letter of welcome from the manager included a note that... More

We had one night here visiting friends locally. Lovely old house. Bright spacious bedrooms, grand reception rooms,but it was the food and service that was exceptional. We had dinner which was really excellent. Perfect sized portions served by attentive friendly staff. Very good wine list too. Really good cooking. Breakfast was super too. Plenty choice. It was an inclusive packet... More

This is a potentially wonderful place, the rooms we had on 2nd floor were huge, the lounge very grand, the staff very helpful, but there didn't seem to be anything "special". There was something of a faded grandeur about the building, and eating in the restaurant was not relaxing and too formal for our taste. It could be better with... More

This is a fine old pile of a place, which has been lovingly restored to its original glory, and is now a good, traditional and stylish place to stay, within 40 mins drive of the ferries to Northern Ireland from Stranraer / Cairnryan. We did have a problem finding the place initially. Large it may be, but it's well hidden... More

We'd eaten here a few times in past years, but never stayed until now. Old world standards of customer care & friendly courtesy suited us entirely from the moment we arrived and were guided to our comfortable suite until our departure 3 days later. Plenty of attention to detail with menus & the much better than average wine list available... More

This review is not about accomodation but just sunday lunch. We wanted a "special lunch" as it was my husbands birthday and as this hotel offers "Gourmet Breaks" and has numerous framed "culinary awards" in the foyer we thought this would be a good choice but how wrong we were. Firstly we were surprised to find it extremely quiet which... More

My husband and I stayed in July for 3 nights. The room we were given when we arrived was ground floor, we asked if we could change for a room with a view and it was no problem. Great room, great staff, food was lovely, hotel decor is from a time of elegance, meant as a compliment. Though dated it... More

A weekend at Kirroughtree is just perfect to relax in the seclusion of the beautiful grounds, in the beautiful countryside of Newton Stewart. Once a desirable country estate set in acres of woodland, this country house hotel offers a taste of country life in a refined but relaxed atmosphere. Guests are made to feel very welcome, the staff being courteous... More

Our stay at Kirroughtree at the end of June was our sixth visit to the hotel. Service is excellent, the property is well maintained in lovely grounds and one is always made to feel at home. Service is outstanding and Jim Stirling is without doubt the best hotel manager we have encountered anywhere in the world. Warren and Lyn
