Second visit to the hotel and I am pleased to say that our stay was just as good if not better than the last one. Stayed a bit longer this time with my Husband and two children aged five and three. The room was lovely, clean and quite. And the beds were so comfortable we slept like logs. The food... More

We managed to get a booking at short notice after our pre-booked hotel let us down. The owner couldnt have been more helpful. Evening meals were very good value for money, breakfast was a great start to the day. The rooms were clean & warm with a good supply of clean towels and T & C. The locals were friendly... More

Stayed here at new year with friends from as far away as Australia. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Particularly Heather. The lounge was nice and comfy and cosy. We only ate one night but food was good. Basic but we'll cooked and plenty of it. They also supplied a lovely buffet free of charge for us as... More

The Imperial is brilliant. The staff were fantastic and nothing asked was any problem to Patricia and her staff. Heather was unbelievably brilliant. When you get one of the staff travelling for an hour on New Years day to get a keg of beer for us, that sums up the brilliant and homely attitude that we had during our stay.... More

Arrived in Castle Douglas for a few days break, first time on my own having always travelled with my late husband. Was feeling very vulnerable, but was greeted by this lovely lady at The Imperial who took me under her wing, made sure l knew best places to visit. Also, took time to sit with me early evening. Thank you,... More

First the positive, there's only one. It was cheap. But cheap should not mean bad. I can't really think of any real other positives. The hotel is more a pub with rooms, and a noisy pub at that, with single-glazed windows. Our room overlooked the smoking area which got noisy as you would expect, meaning we had to close the...

Nearly chose the 'poor' rating, but the soup and roll were good as was the liver and onions. The green vegetables were greatly overcooked, but then it's the fashion in these parts to murder their veg it seems. We only had lunch so cannot judge accommodation.The manageress (?) wears her glasses over her mouth and tells off the staff in... More
