KIngs Arms is an old Coaching Inn with a comfortable homely feel. The service was was good, friendly and efficient. We were part of a large group but this was no problem to the staff. Food was good quality and value. The hotel can cater for golfers, motorcyclists or mountian bikers and has a secure car park and bike sheds.... More

Just returned from a motorcycle club trip. We based ourselves in the Kings Arms for 3 nights. It is a family run very traditional style Scottish small hotel. Some may say that it is a little old fashioned with dated decor, and whilst that may be true, it doesn't detract from the homely and comfortable atmosphere of the place. Staff... More

Stayed here over the weekend for a mountain biking trip. The hotel was great, the owners were friendly and helpful, the staff were great. The rooms were nice and clean, bike storage was provided and the food was top notch.

Dropped in on Tuesday 17th June for a bite. Had the loveliest fish and chips. Fish came in the crispest batter, and those chips. Big fat, crisp to bite fluffy inside. Portion size, good left nothing but didn't look for more either. Service was quick, and was topped off with good manners! Must find an excuse to go again! Soon!

Had a lovely week-end staying at the Kings while visiting my brother in Castle Douglas. The room was excellent..clean and comfortable. Very relaxing! The breakfast was enjoyable served by friendly and efficient staff. Unfortunately, we never got to sample a meal in the restaurant which was always pretty busy...a good sign! Looking forward to a return visit...would recommend this hotel... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable and we enjoyed the tea, coffee and Scottish shortbread provided in the rooms. At dinner we were shown... More
