Awful old and run down

Not a nice place at all. Really run down and in desperate need of either knocking down or a complete refurb. Owner doesn't care and is rude plus the bar staff have no manners. Dirty bar and glasses and no different from the TIdes pub next door which is equally as bad. Avoid this place at all costs... read more

I was sorely disappointed when, having ordered a simple bowl of pasta, I received what I can only describe as an inedible mush (overcooked by at least 5 minutes) with absolutely no flavour or redemptive qualities.

We called in here on our first night in Kirkcudbright it was OK and fairly busy. On our second night Saturday it was closed at 11.30 so could not get a drink.

This potentially and once beautiful hotel is really not worth staying at unless you can't get anything else. I was bitterly disappointed to see how far it has slipped. Mediocre service, too basic rooms, and a so so bar all combined to make it a forgetful experience.

After a poor experience in a neighbouring restaurant we tried the Royal Hotel and found it quiet and enjoyed a meal which was well cooked with tasty, tender meat and good service. Books and magazines were supplied to read while the food was being cooked which did not seem to be excessively long.
