Went back to bar area and had a bite to eat before bed, food very tasty and hot. Breakfast in the morning very tasty, overall... More

We only went for a meal, it was superb. I had the lamb cutlets, I was asked how I wanted them cooked (pink) and they were cooked to perfection. My wife had the chicken curry and said it was very nice. All in all a great place to eat, why use a motorway service stop when something as good as... More

This place was absoloutely lovely! Friendly staff, clean and comfortable room. Delicious evening meal and wonderful breakfast. Couldn't fault this place at all. Kindly allowed us to return a day later to pick up a few bits we left behind. We are planning our next trip to Scotland already so that we can stay here again.

Could not have been made to feel more welcome. Room and facilities great. Sure it was quiet but evening meal and breakfast were faultless. It is good to have a chat with the management staff and they were humorous and couldn't do enough to help. Small tip - take your own pillows ! Really enjoyed our stay Thank you it... More

We were staying at the Days inn up the road in Lockerbie and Annandale water services and didn't fancy a Roadchef or Big Mac. We were directed here by the receptionist at the Days Inn. The approach was dark and bumpy and it looked deserted but we decided to try it as there appeared no alternative. It was a real... More

We booked this hotel for one night whilst travelling in Scotland for business. Must admit we arrived in the dark and it was not easy to see if we had arrived at a hotel or a private house. It was pouring with rain and the pot holed car park was a slight challenge in the conditions. If you are looking... More

We booked this 'hotel' for two overnight stays when traveling to and from the Highlands. When we first arrived we actually drove past it, as we thought it was an old house that had seen better days but we soon realised that it had to be the Dinwoodie as there was nothing else there! We drove up the pot-holed car... More

Unfortunately none of this chaps views were disclosed during his stay. Were he to have done so, remedial action could have been taken. This review is mainly based on the first stay, so we wonder if it was that bad, why they came back!? To answer some points: We are a listed building and are only allowed single glazed sash... More
