You are welcomed from the moment you enter the door. We stayed for one night and this place captured our heart. The food is good and the service to match. Good home cooking and big portions too. Rosa and Louis are great fun and the most fantastic addition to the family there. Where kirkconnel excels it's self is how clean... More

Stayed here on our way back to the Midlands from Scotland. Really comfortable room, I slept like a log! The evening meal ( I had fish and chips) was superb, has to have been some of the nicest fish I've ever tasted. Perfect English breakfast with all the trimmings and our dogs were made very welcome everywhere. As a fellow... More

Great location for touring the Borders region of Scotland. Close to Gretna, Lockerbie and Carlyle in England. The hotel was situated on wonderful grounds, was very comfortable and the staff very helpful and friendly.. Meals were excellent.

Don`t expect a modern experience,this is a very big rambling historic building of some age- but it provides a comfortable stay .The host displays the dry `Derbyshire gentleman`style of his origins-and provides exceptionally good food for his guests.He has put his flair for good taste decoration to good use in the dining rooms- which remind you of a top notch...

We stayed 2 nights with voucher but were a bit disappointed. We are not dog lovers but although 2 resident dogs did not bark much or jump up I felt it was wrong that they were allowed in dining rooms and to lie on furniture in bar area. They advertise continental breakfast and feel they should stick to this as... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on a voucher offer and was very pleasantly surprised. If you are expecting 5* luxury, then this is not the place to stay - but if you want to stay in a clean, homely, welcoming place then you have found it!

Unfortunately, there is not anything really positive I can say about our experience at this hotel.
