“Breakfast a bit of a let down!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Stayed on a fishing trip, rooms very clean but singles are small, and bathroom cramped.
Evening meal was very good and we could not fault the welcome and service.
Breakfast was a let down - coffee and tea not fresh, and in flasks, we were not offered a choice of toast and you have to pay a £5 supplement for a full breakfast!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights as a base for our fishing trip on the nearby River Nith with 3 friends. Cleanliness of the rooms is superb, albeit my room was quite small and the bed was very low, but I got used to it.
Peter and his staff are very friendly and welcoming. Zara in the bar has a tremendous personality and makes everyone welcome.
The food is excellent with a wide choice to suit all tastes. Only slight disappointment was the lack of marmalade at breakfast, but this not deter from a thoroughly enjoyable stay at the Thornhill Inn and I very much look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 10. It's a single occupancy room but is very small.

Once again a lovely weekend at Thornhill. Many thanks Peter and team. Group of 10 golfers are well looked after every year and we always look forward to returning. There is a good range of food options, rooms nice and clean. Helpful friendly staff. Golf course suits all abilities. Great base for all Dumfries and Galloway courses.

We stayed here for one night while site seeing, we did not pre book but managed to get a double room when we turned up. The place itself is nice, its very clean and the rooms are of a good standard with everything you need. My only negative is regarding breakfast, you could choose from a list of scrambled eggs on toast etc. however you had to pay an extra £5 each if you wanted a full breakfast, i would think that at £80 per night this should be included.

We stayed here for 2 nights for the Thornhill Music festival (2013). The hotel was lovely and our room was very big (room 2) and very clean. We had a front facing room which would benefit from some black out curtains on the windows but otherwise it was a great room and hotel. The food in the restaurant was excellent as was the breakfast. A huge thank you to the staff for their friendly welcoming service throughout our stay.

The menu gave plenty of choice and was of course, prepared to order, it was well worth waiting for. Nicely presented and in pleasant surroundings, although as we visited early doors, a little lacking in atmosphere, but that is NOT a complaint!
