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

We stayed for three nights as the start of a two week touring holiday in Scotland. Our room had a larger floor area than our home and also had a wonderful view over the grounds and countryside. Menus changed every day and each evening meal was excellent. Great breakfasts as well

Booked this for a getaway before and after jollifications! Lovely surroundings and beautiful room, spoiled by noisy extratctor fan from kitchen which came on at 5pm until last meal and again at 8am for breakfast. Ask for room well away from this Food excellent on 2nd night but not nearly as good on fist evening.

We visited the Kirroughtree House Hotel last weekend. It was something of a sentimental journey, as my late father was born in a cottage on the then Kirroughtree House Estate and my grandfather worked as a gardner on the estate from circa 1910 until 1926 (excluding his WW1 service in the Argyle & Sutherland Highland Regiment). The staff could not... More

We stayed here again for 2 nights to celebrate my birthday and for an enjoyable break. The hotel, location, staff, service and food were exemplary. We always feel welcomed back by the staff which is very heartening. Although we have stayed several times we continue to remark on the high attention to detail for example in our room with the...
