I would agree with almost everything previously mentioned - ongoing project, friendly welcome, very pleasant bedroom etc etc. Just a couple of negatives. The toilet behind the ensuite door could be dangerous in Room 10, the taps were very difficult to use if your hands were wet & would be hopeless if you had any sort of reduced function in... More

My husband and I arrived by car and used the back entrance to enter the hotel. Not very appealing and we were worried about what was to come having only booked because I liked the name. I have to say things turned out well. The hotel is still being renovated ( I think it is a long term project). We... More

My problem here is that I don't want to knock people who are trying hard to make a go of this, the only hotel / bar / restaurant in Ecclefechan. As far as I could see, the hotel is run by a family comprising a married couple and his father, who hail from Blackpool, where I gather they used to... More

We booked this hotel just for a night away from the city based or the reviews from other travelers. We were not let down. John the Manager is a mad irishman from Dublin who after 15 mins you feel like you've known him all your life, and after 30 feel like one of the family. Mary his wife is the... More

This Hotel is about 1/2 way on our journey north to Cape Wrath and we booked before we set off. The building is undergoing refurbishment and the part we were in was decorated to a high standard. We had dinner in the bar - good value and tasty washed down with a pint of a quality real ale. The bedroom... More

We stopped off over night on our way up to Scotland, we found the staff to be very welcoming, the landlord is an interesting fellow. if you ask him nicely he might show you his banjo! Because the kitchen was closed we thought we might have to skip dinner in favour of a liquid one! Thankfully the kind staff made... More

Great hotel, great location for a stopover on a long journey north or south. I booked this based on reviews and the competitive price. We were not disappointed: a warm welcome, a big, clean, refurbished room, great food at a bargain price and excellent beer too. As others have said, the corridors and some other areas are under refurbishment, but... More

This is a GREAT find, just off the M6 and roughly 100 miles south of Glasgow. Plenty of parking. This very friendly hotel looks like a building site, but don't be put off. The rooms are a completely refurbished to a very high standard and the Kelly family are always willing to 'go that extra' mile to please guests. The... More
