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...

I chose this hotel online to celebrate my wifes 70th birthday, thinking it would be quiet and peaceful in a lovely part of Scotland. The intention was that her brother and sister could join us for the evening as they both live in Glasgow. When I suggested it, they both decided to stay as well. First impressions on arrival were...

My wife and I called into Kirroughtree House Hotel for Sunday lunch. Right from the outset it was obvious this business sets a high emphasis on service delivery with customer satisfaction their main objective. The décor of the building promotes the past history of the building and for those interested there are historical artefacts relating to the Robert Burns connection... More

I visited this property in early December as part of a weekend stargazing package with astronomer, Steve Owen. Included in the price were 2 nights accommodation, 4 course dinners, breakfasts, a presentation by Steve, and an outing into the Dark Sky Park to view the constellations (unfortunately weather cannot be guaranteed!). Food was chosen from a set menu, which varied... More

Built in 1719 by the architect Patrick Heron, the house was intended as a status symbol for the wealthy Heron family. Today, nearly 300 years later the mansion still exudes that "olde worlde" charm that symbolises its promise of comfort and luxury within. Booked in for a gourmet weekend and having one of the spacious bay window rooms, your first... More

The Kirroughtree House is a beautiful place in southwest Scotland. The service is excellent. Jim and his staff are very kind and take great care of their guests. The food is delicious and the breakfast and dinner menus have a nice variety of selections. If you want to get away to the country, this is a great place to go.... More

Looking for a hotel to stay in while mountain biking with my son at 7stanes I found this lovely Scottish country hotel only 10 minutes cycle ride from the start of the trails (which by the way are excellent) The staff were all very friendly and helpful, we had a lovely room and the meal on the Saturday night was...
