After being let down at another hotel we managed to get three rooms at late notice at the Ecclefechan Hotel. The rooms were spotless, the staff exceptionally friendly and the breakfast well cooked and presented. All in all I would thoroughly recommend a stay in this hotel.

As part of our Thomas Carlyle quest, (he was born in Ecclefechan) We arrived at the Ecclefechan Hotel and were warmly welcomed by Joseph who told us that although Mary was out, he had room at the Inn for us. This warm and happy Irish humour continued throughout our two day visit and we were treated extremely well. The breakfast,... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Ecclefechan Hotel. Great food and very friendly people - Joe and Mary are great hosts. The rooms are comfortable and decorated to a high standard. The bar and lounge are cosy and warm. There was pool and darts to keep the kids amused. The meals are great value and all home cooked food... More

"What a gem" the minute we walked through the doors we were treated like family by the owners Son (chef, barman and host). This family owned and run establishment is what a small business is all about when it comes to personal treatment and quality. Joe is an absolute gentleman and delievered the top quality breakfast cooked freshly to order... More

We first visited here about a year ago - you should have a look at that review to fill out what I'm saying here. This time we visited on our way South down the A74. The hotel now has a few more rooms refurbished and the one we had was well appointed and comfortable, with a good sized en suite,... More

I stayed here on a B&B basis for three nights. On arrival I received a warm welcome. The hotel, close to the A74(M) is in the process of undergoing refurbishment. I was accommodated in a refurbished room, done to a moderately good standard. It was a long narrow room, with little room at the bottom of the two beds.. There... More

Refurbished rooms were great, fluffy towels, hot showers, quiet room, and the best family friendly welcome in Scotland! Highly recommend a stay at this great hotel. The staff couldn't be more helpful, and a constant log fire in the bar helped the atmosphere along.

Although still under refurbishment, the rooms are first class, the food is superb, and the hosts and staff are excellent and very sociable. Next time visiting Scotland we shall surely book in here. Brilliant! Joe Mary and family know how to look after you.

Wow what a place and the most beautiful welcome set the tone for the rest of our overnight stay. Joseph and Mary have plenty experience in looking after their guests and boy did it show. The hotel is being refurbished and work is well underway. We stayed in one of the rooms that had been completed and what a wonderful... More

This hotel is a labour of love by the family who own it and a great place to stay. We stayed for the night en route back home and it's such a welcoming and friendly place. Our room was recently refurbished, it was comfortable and nicely finished. We had our meal in the bar which was excellent and good value,... More
