“Excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Stopped for dinner here while staying in Castle Douglas. We were a bit close to the end of food service time but staff were happy to help. Staff were very friendly. Slight problem with one of our food orders but staff were very apologetic and provided replacement food, extra chips and free desserts. Food was excellent and would definitely go back again!

We used the Kings Arms as a venue for a small get together after our son's christening. It was great. We live 400 miles away and booked everything over the phone. The day before the christening we took in some balloons, table decorations and a cake and they prepared everything for us. We had a private room at the back of the hotel and it looked lovely. The buffet they provided was just great and was topped up (we even took some home). The price was very reasonable. We would definately recommend.

I've never stayed in the hotel but have eaten here on a number of visits to Dalbeattie. My last meal here was in July 2012. As usual, the food was good quality and in good portions. The menu gives a good selection, including lighter options if you don't want a full meal. I have always found the staff to be really friendly and helpful, so it's a pleasure to go back when we are in the town.

We ate at Kings Arms one night during a stay in Dalbeattie.

There were many choices on the menu, all reasonably priced and our food, (lasagne and chicken curry), arrived quickly, were filling and very tasty.

Recommended for very good pub food.

(Didn't stay here, so cannot review the accomodation).

From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were all greeted with an extremely friendly welcome.
Secure parking in the rear car park for our 5 motor bikes; it was just the job.
On entering the hotel you could immediately see it was well cared for and immaculately clean.
The rooms were of a very high standard - modern with fantastic en suite (Double Shower). This was certainly the best hotel we stayed in on our 1400 mile bike journey up the East Coast - across the North and down the West Coast. This was out final night stop before heading home and it certainly made a huge difference to our outlook on the trip and indeed hotel value for money.
We had an evening meal - I had the wonderful soup starter, followed by Haggis, neaps and tatties and trifle dessert and may I add that it was excellent food. My friends were also extolling the virtues of their meals. We washed it down with a fine bottle of Fish Hoek Shiraz 2010/11, Western Cape, South Africa (Priced at £13). The meals represented terrific value for money all round.
The following morning the breakfast was truly magnificent - self serve fruit juice and cereals, followed by unlimited tea and toast (served by a really kind and friendly elderly waitress - she asked me to refer to her that!!) and a full Scottish breakfast.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I will be returning in the not too distant future.
I have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful 5 star experience.
Well done Kings Arms - keep up the good work
