We have just spent a wonderful 3 night break here for New Year. The hotel is really comfortable with large bedrooms, lovely views, large roaring fire in the lounge and extremely kind, attentive and helpful staff. The food was great and you even get invited into the kitchen to meet the chefs. There is also a library room with selection... More

Returned to the Kirroughtree House again for our annual pheasant shooting trip to SW Scotland with friends. Jim and his staff are delightful -- excellent service. The food is delicious -- wonderful hot breakfast and the dinners are gourmet. Very good selection of wines and scotches. The hotel is quiet and peaceful and allows for a good night of sleep....

We are pleased to say that the hotel is as nice at it was on our last visit. (18 years ago). Although the hotel is now under new ownership it retains the style and comfort that we always loved. The room is great and the quiet is very relaxing. Unfortunatly the Table D'Hote menu whilst being excellent is really for... More

We stayed here for two nights and were sorry it wasn't longer. Our room (19) was the best hotel room I can remember - spacious, comfortable, quiet and well furnished with a very nice outlook over the grounds. The staff were welcoming and efficient and the 'country house' atmosphere was a pleasant change from the kind of thing you usually... More

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
