I was booked into this hotel on business, and had no idea of the hotel. On arrival, I was warmly greeted by two very friendly receptionists, and was asked if I wanted taking to my room. The room itself was lovely and spotless, with one of the comfiest beds I have slept in. The view from the window was very uninspiring, but as I arrived after dark and left the next morning, it was not a problem, The bathroom was very clean and in good condition. It had a big flat screen TV also.
I had a meal in the restaurant was was excellent quality, and reasonably priced. I only had a continental breakfast, but could have had a full cooked one, which looked appetising, seeing others eating it. The waiters in the evening and morning were very friendly and attentive.
My only downside was that I was unable to access the wireless internet, the room having a poor signal. However, due to my short stay, it was not an issue.
If I was travelling in the area again, I would definitely stay. It is a beautifully styled hotel in such a small town.

Rich in history, The Dumfries Arms Hotel has stood at the heart of the ancient burgh of Cumnock, Ayrshire since the early 18th century and even predates nearby Dumfries House, saved for the nation by HRH The Prince of Wales and now one of the nation's most stunning heritage attractions. Over its 300 year history the hotel's guests have included some colourful and well known characters including our national bard, Robert Burns and Sir Walter Scott, who made reference to his stay in Old Cumnock..."Where beds are as hard as a plank, sir". Much has changed since! However, as an important part of our heritage, due homage has been accorded with these historic words being embroidered on soft furnishings within our guest rooms. We should add that our beds are magnificently comfortable! We look forward to welcoming you to one of Scotland's newest, privately owned boutique hotels whether as a resident, diner, or to view our stunning function facilities if you are planning a very special event.
