Day trip to Kirkcudbright and we wanted somewhere to eat but we had our dog with us. The lady opened the “Wee Bar” especially for us and we had a delicious lunch. Nothing was too much trouble. Five star service and food.

We had a lovely meal at the Selkirk Arms Hotel. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. They went out of their way to make it a special evening as we were celebrating my Dad's 70th birthday. They even gave him a birthday card, which was a really

Dear Liz A, Thank you for describing us as lovely. We are blessed with a healthy mix of corporate and leisure travellers all with varying priorities and wish lists - it's super to read that you had what you needed here. Our two Housekeeping ladies Shona and Heather cook breakfast and they are both very particular - the result is a tasty plateful. Should you return, if necessary that day, please have a chat with reception and they will be happy to arrange a pre-order for a set time to guarantee you are off out the door at a time best for you. I'm really pleased that you had a great stay and I thank you for this feedback. best regards, Joanna Scott.

We were enthusiastically received by the lovely Joanna, and the rest of our one night stay was on par with this. Nice room, very friendly and efficient staff, nice bar, and very very good food ! Hotel is also in the centre of the nice little town of Kirkcudbright.

Dear RickKessel_Lo Aw thank you! Big smiles from us.. I've just replied to another review which also praised the staff and all they do so to read this is also lovely. There are many who have worked in the hotel for a long time so it's great to see the repercussions are good. As you say, the hotel is perfectly placed in Kirkcudbright for all of the town attractions and also for those who want to spread their wings a little and look around the region. It offers so much from art to history to golf to walking to cycling to beaches to climbing . . . .! An exhausting list but there are also lots of great little eateries and nooks and crannies for a rest and a refreshment. Thank you so much - please do come and see us again. best regards Joanna Scott.

Visited the Selkirk arms a number of times whilst staying in Kirkcudbright over new year. The staff are lovely and are very chatty. The food was delicious especially the Asian style vegetarian bean burger! Would definitely recommend to anyone and am hoping to do a return visit

Dear Jessica S, Thank you ! A very positive and happy review - it means a lot. Many of the staff have been employed here long term and I feel they strike a good balance of when to interact and how. Their experience and longevity is just so key -a great team. Please do come back soon - don't hesitate to contact us to help you with this. best regards, Joanna Scott
