Stayed in a hotel about 3 miles down the road from this pub/b&b/restaurant. Asked at a B&B family were staying at if they recommended any were and they told us to give this place a try. It was easily found. When we walked in it was a very old fashioned place. The fire was going and there were only a... More

Stayed one night in August on route to Highlands , the room was large with comfortable bed and good shower. Superb fried breakfast and easy to park behind hotel or on the street. This is a very quiet town / location but just 2 mins from the motorway. This is an old traditional Inn with a bar and a nice... More

I booked the hotel very last minute due to a change in our holiday plans to the North East of Scotland. \Located ideally just of the motorway but far enough away so no noise. The owners and staff we very friendly and extremely helpful and polite. We had two dogs and they were very welcome by owners/staff and other guests/public... More

The Ecclefechan Hotel is very handily located just a couple of minutes off the motorway so an ideal spot for an overnight stay to break a long journey. As many other reviewers have said, it is a long-term work in progress and as such some of the downstairs areas are either in need of renovation or in the process of... More

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
