Stayed at The Bruce Thursday 23rd April and Sunday 26th April 2015. Stayed similar time last year. We travelled to the Cookstown motor cycle road racing in Ireland. The hotel is ideal for the ferry. The hotel is clean and tidy and the staff are excellent. Our room was spacious, lots of room for motor cycle leathers helmet etc. The... More

Stayed and ate at the hotel 3 nights over Easter. Lovely big room. Food great. Breakfast was perfect - one of the best I've ever had. The archway into the car park is VERY narrow; had the parking sensors on my Insignia beeping like mad.

We stayed here for one night after finishing a punishing 31Km ride around Kiroughtree mountain bike trail. This hotel is really close by. Staff were really great. Rooms were clean and cosy. Hearty food and a good selection of beers available. Hotel is mountain bike friendly. Would recommend to all riders out there who are looking for a good stop... More

My husband and I have tried many of the hotels/restaurants in the area for Sunday lunch. I have to say The Bruce is by far the best. We have eaten there several Sundays over the past few months and haven't been disappointed in the quality of the Sunday lunch. The meat is top class accompanied by homemade Yorkshire puddings. We...

My partner and myself stayed at The Bruce last week (05-07/03/2015) The staff were pleasant and very informative, our room was clean and comfortable. We only ate at the Hotel once in the evening but the food was lovely. We had particularly gone up to stargaze in Galloway Forest Park but the weather was overcast, when telling this to the... More

I recommend this hotel as a friendly, comfortable hotel, typical of small market towns in Scotland. Both the town and the hotel clearly have history, so don't be put off by the slightly tired appearance of either, and instead look forward to finding out about them. I found the hotel was warm, with a comfortable and very clean room and... More

I can honestly say that the Bruce hotel is a wonderful place to eat, though the waiter/barman was unbelievably rude, and constantly on his phone when service was required, tut tut, I don't really remember the bar man's name but I think it was Rob, due to the fact the very obtuse head man kept shouting it across the room...

just spent our second new year celebrations at this hotel. We traveled on a coach party, upon arrival we were greeted by friendly manager and staff, who sorted out our luggage and delivered to our rooms while we had tea or coffee with cake and scone's. Nothing was to much trouble for any of the staff, who made our stay... More

An excellent manager and staff, nothing was to much trouble The outside of the hotel does not do it justice, My only problem was that my room was too hot and I had to have window open, this was due to very mild weather (not expected in Dec)and not the hotels fault
