Hotel is a bit tired, but the room was comfortable and clean, the staff were very friendly and welcoming and the food excellent. All in all a very enjoyable stay and good value for money. Hopefully the fabric will be given a little TLC in the future.

2 night stop-over. Nice room on the first floor, a colleague had a top floor room which he said was a bit chilly? Nice bar area, the weekly quiz night gets a lot of attention. We didn't do the quiz (much to the manager / landlords surprise) but sat and watched the arrangements unfold! We had a bar meal one... More

My husband and I stayed for one night and really enjoyed our stay. The room was large and very clean and the staff were all very pleasant and nicely spoken. We had a lovely Sunday roast meal and would definitely book this hotel again

We spent two nights here and at first I didn't like it very much. Room 21...very clean but the bath lets the room down as does the electric chandelier style ceiling light with more bits missing than working...not very endearing first impressions! Walk along the high street and there's lots of competition and yes they too have their own issues!... More

We travelled into Newtown Stewart following a lovely day out. We searched for restaurants and was guided to the Bruce Hotel by our GPS. Staff were very friendly and restaurant was very comfortable. We opted for the Sunday roast special (3 courses for £15) and was not disappointed. Meal from start to finish was delicious! Free wifi was also a... More

We took our 2 grandchildren (11 & 14) here for a DBB 3 night break. It was fantastic value for money. .The children loved having their own connecting bedroom next to ours, both of which were very clean. There was a good selection of food, well cooked and presented, we ate in the diningroom overlooking the hills. The staff were... More

We stayed for two nights and it was one of the most relaxed places we've stayed, and very central for touring Galloway. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food excellent, and there aren't notices with rules of your stay all over the room! We loved the whole place, the decor may be a bit tired (less to worry... More

Owned by absentee owners this hotel really needs a thorough refurb. The decor is tired, the carpets pulling away from the wall a bit, and patchy - BUT....... it is exemplary in its cleanliness, and all the little extras are there, along with dedicated staff. The food is spot on, ordinary fare, nicely presented, hot, and in sufficient quantity. This... More
