We spent three nights in hotel, excellent home cooked food and good ale, owners and staff were also excellent. A good base for exploring the Dumfries and Galloway area, the locals were also friendly and we had a god time at the quiz night. The only reason for not giving five stars is because of the size of the on-suite,... More

28th June - spent two nights at the Blue Peter Hotel and could not fault it. Good welcome, good cider and Real Ale! The food was first class, especially the hand cut chips! Only disappointment was that by the time we had ordered on the Saturday night they had run out of giant scotch eggs which looked amazing (need to... More

Just had a weekend in the Blue Peter Hotel, we came to Kirkcolm to scatter my step father's ashes in the Glen. Everyone at the Blue Peter looked after us brilliantly, nothing was to much trouble, they were all very caring and supportive. The Blue Peter Hotel is situated in a lovely little village and I will be back again... More

It's not all change in the Blue Peter, still has good real ale, still does good pub grub that is cheap as chips. Ian and Ruth are gone but the new owners are working hard to make a good pub better. We enjoyed chicken and chips and vegetarian lasagne, both were excellent, huge portions and value for money. The three... More

The hotel changed hands at the right time as it was going down hill and even local residents had stopped attending. New owners have brought ideas, but in a group of 12 of us, all locals, returning to the pub for a meal and some drinks, all booked well in advance, the overall opinion was poor. Some people had eaten... More

Due to the adverse weather conditions we were unable to leave the hotel til late in the afternoon. The hotel provided us with a fantastic breakfast (and lunch at no extra cost) all served... More
