Stayed here last night, fantastic food and really welcoming landlady, Susan. Loads of information about what to do, wish we'd booked earlier! And we got to stay in Guy Martin's room....he stayed here whilst filming his hovercraft attempt. Not surprised, lovely area and lovely people. Will come and stay again as we've not got to see everything.

Stayed one night as I was visiting the Galloway Forest Dark Sky park. This hotel is well placed for access to the park. I was unable to check in earlier due to getting stuck at a local Observatory, but the landlady was very understanding (although I should have called first, my fault!). Parking could be a little challenging I expect... More

Arrived here late on into the evening. Parking wasn't too much trouble although we got the last space on the street. We didn't use the bar but going through it looked cosy indeed. Room was very pretty and although you could describe it as small it felt nice n cosy. Breakfast was very nice. Wonderful host who provided for my... More

Stayed here last weekend. Small B&B Hotel with lovely staff and terrific meals. Fantastic Neaps and Tatties (local Scottish dish)! Very clean and welcoming we had a fantastic, romantic evening of star gazing, when we saw many shooting stars (found out it's a European dark sky park). After a porridge and full cooked breakfast, we set off rested and determined... More

There was no heating on in the hotel and the bar and restaurant were closed. Room was cheaply furnished and beds were uncomfortable. TV was about the size of a postage stamp. Detritus from previous guest found in several drawers. No toiletries in bathroom apart from liquid soap. For some strange reason the bathroom was carpeted.When I tried to open... More

Excellent short stay just wish it could have been longer! Spotlessly clean rooms, comfy bed and a great shower. Delicious home cooked evening meal, a bar full of character and a great Scottish breakfast in the morning. Susan is a fabulous host and offered to help out when it looked like our plans for the evening had fallen through. If... More

Spent the night in this quaint village hotel after being recommended by friends who'd stayed previously. Cannot fault it, very cheery pleasant welcome, spotlessly clean room, and very comfy bed. Spent the evening in the hotel, with a lovely meal and some drinks in the cozy bar. We both felt very welcomed, especially by Oscar & Lilly the residents dogs.... More

The owner of this hotel is looking to retire and to my mind she will be a great loss to the hotel trade. From the moment I arrived she went out her way to make my stay as enjoyable as possible. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were spotless and the bed was one of the most comfortable... More
