Havent been to Murray arms for quiet a few years I know its an old hotel but was shocked at how shabby and run down it looked from the outside. They are in the process of renovations. On entering my bedroom there was an overpowering smell of bleach and cleaning products which had been left by the bathroom sink, the... More

Lovely room, lovely food, fantastic wine, helpful staff and a building full of character. We had a lovely stay in this hotel and would definitely go back. Yes the building is old and needs work but the owners are clearly doing a very good job of maintaining it And I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to any... More

There were 4 of us out for a birthday meal and thought we would give the place a try as had not been for a meal in the Murray Arms for a number of years. The decor in the dining area was nice enough, the place was very clean and the staff were friendly. We ordered 2 starters to share... More

Had a two night break at this hotel last week with my partner and two young children. Was a last minute break. On arriving at hotel it looked really tired on the outside. When we made our way in to reception the first thing you notice is the musty damp smell. We were shown to our room which was in... More

Friday evening, popped in for a bar snack on our way home. There was a group in the restaurant, and a couple sat outside, otherwise the place was deserted! The Murray Arms had been recommended to us for its food, which was very good. Menu had good range of choice, and was served promptly and efficiently by five different members... More

We went for a meal, but nearly walked out. Starter took 90 minutes to arrive. Don't think we would have got it then if we hadn't reminded them. Talking to another resteraunt patron and locals this is not an isolated incident. They really need to sort out their staffing issues. In fairness we were given some compensation for the problems...

Visited as a party of 6 on Father's Day. Lovely smell of peat on the fire and the open airy and almost homelike feel. Menu was a lovely size, good choice, not a massive tome to trawl through but options to suit all tastes. Kids menu was lovely, not the usual breaded and battered fried affair that some restaurants pass... More

8 of my family, visiting the wonderful town of Gatehouse, descended on the Murray Arms. All really hungry, thirsty & in quite high spirits! The staff, the service & the food were second to non. Our waiter, only very young, was so polite & eager to please. He made 4 perfect cappuccinos, 10 out of ten to him!!!!

Ideally placed for a short break in Dumfries and Galloway, the hotel was comfortable and welcoming. The breakfasts were lovely with a good choice of cold and hot food. The restaurant had a pleasant feel and the food we had was superb; surprisingly good choice and good quality.

On entering this hotel the first thing that hits you is the smell of damp, whilst the main hall leading to the dining room even had a water drip from the ceiling. This hotel in general is old and tired. Our disappointment did not stop there, as once in the bedrooms you will find they are cheaply furnished and dated,... More
