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

Old fashioned coaching inn with friendly and hospitable staff. I really enjoyed my stay here. The quality of the room was commensurate with the price I paid ( would have prefered a bigger telly though :) ) Central in the town and had a good variety of chouces in the restaurant.

Hate being negative towards hotels but the Murray Arms has seen better days, room smelled musty and not the cleanest. Wallpaper was peeling off the bedroom wall in one place. Bathroom carpet was stinking too. Food was nothing special and breakfast poor. Really struggle to find any positives. Certainly in need of some work.
