We had such a lovely time at the Kirroughtree, staying 4 nights plus 2 more a few days later. Set in beautiful grounds, this elegant hotel is beautifully appointed. We were greeted by staff that wanted to look after you. They did this very well, nothing was too much trouble. Shown to our room which was on the lower ground... More

I've stayed here a couple of times now - both times excellent and I'll be back. Lovely location (perfect base for cycling), lovely rooms, slightly fading grandeur and friendly (memorable) staff. Only minor complaint - the wifi in the basement room sucked, despite the presence of a repeater box outside the door.

My husband and I spent a night here on business. We left feeling rested, relaxed and thoroughly charmed by the whole experience. The hotel itself nestles in beautiful grounds, so quiet and full of natural interest. The building dates back to the early 1700s, and a brief history is included in the guest information pack in the rooms - worth... More

I have stayed at Kirroughtree before although it is now under new ownership. The staff are very good,many having been there for a long time,although one rather elderly waiter is definitely not as customer centred. There was a 60th birthday party on the night I dined in the Hotel so I was alone in the alternative restaurant and ordered my... More

My husband and I stayed on a Saturday night. I booked directly through the hotel as I had a few questions. The girl on the phone - Heather(?) was very friendly & professional. I explained I had a gluten & lactose free diet- she took a note of all the details- even taking the name of the brand of milk... More

I had an overnight stay at the hotel when visiting friends in Galloway. I had heard that the management had changed hands and because of this I was uncertain about going, in fact I had phoned another hotel in the area but when put onto voicemail I decided they must be too busy. I need not have worried as the... More

Just spent a superb three day weekend at Kirroughtree House Hotel and can thoroughly recommend it. They do all the important things right! Room had everything that was needed, with the bed amazingly comfortable. The guest lounge area was relaxing and ideal for both pre-dinner drinks and after-dinner coffee. The food was top quality and staff quietly efficient and competent.

A beautiful country house rather than a hotel. If you want comfortable elegance and sophistication then this is the place for you. Our room was enormous and comfortable with beautiful views across the gardens. Staff were friendly and the service was excellent with fabulous food. If you want a few quiet days to relax then look no further.

we were staying with friends locally and they suggested the Kirroughtree Hotel for dinner on Saturday night, We arrived by taxi up an imposing drive to a well presented country house hotel, we were met at the door, shown to the lounge and a drink order was taken while we perused the menu, the choice was slightly limited but the...

Lovely hotel, beautiful surroundings, staff all very helpful. However we were slightly disappointed to be given a basement room as we had heard how lovely the views were from the upper rooms. Evening meal was badly presented - chicken dish was extremely salty and chopped up pieces presented in what looked like a bowl of soup. Had to clean toilet... More

Autosc, Owner at Kirroughtree House Hotel, responded to this review

We are pleased to hear that our customers enjoy staying with us and appreciate the surroundings and service. We have recently reduced the price of our lower ground floor rooms both to compensate for the restricted views, and enable those who would not normally be able to afford to stay with us an opportunity to experience our surroundings and service....
