We had a smashing two night stay at this hotel as part of a deal, (bed, breakfast and a bottle of wine) . The hotel was found up a very impressive winding driveway flanked by huge pine trees and looks like it was once a stately home as it has expansive grounds and commanding views. Car parking was at the... More

Just returned from only one night of a two night stay at this hotel - left early despite having a voucher for 2 nights - it was so bad! Our room was basic, which was ok, but above the bed was a big dirty stain on the ceiling and cornice where the roof had leaked, same in the bathroom. We... More

We are a young at heart, but older couple aged 64 &60. Enjoyed a 3 day break 18-20th Aug. This is in a very rural setting about 15-20 mins walk from Castle Douglas. The hotel looks to have been an old stately home and although some parts need TLC the new owners are doing refubishment stage by stage. We enjoyed... More

Stayed in this hotel 2 weeks ago for 2 nights- 2 nights too long, seriously, after being shown room 16 we should have turned round and said no thanks. It was dark, depressing, furniture in our room looked like it had all come from the local dump, not remotely like any of the rooms in the hotel's adverts. Bathroom with... More

Got married there just over 5 years ago so when going to a friends wedding thought it would be nice to stay again. What a disappointment from start to finish!! The most run down place I've stayed for a long time, funny smell in corridors (a bit like an old folks home), confirmation email said we had reserved a room... More

I had read the reviews - but it was the only local hotel left for a late booking close to where we wanted to be and I saw the groupon deal so went for it. I did email though to say that I wanted to avoid some of the problems mentioned in the feedback. I also pointed out that I... More

Ok so we got this deal from groupon... £39 for a night with breakfast and for that price you would think we couldn't complain. However I am writing on here to give an honest account for people thinking of going. The new owners have apparently been in a year and are doing things up slowly... So far only two rooms... More
