The people who actually own the property of this hotel should feel some sense of shame. They have a responsibility for the upkeep and appearance of this old hotel. Several thousand pounds should do it - weatherproofing, painting and some commercial cosmetics. Its not rocket science. For the non to particular traveler, it was relatively clean, water was hot, food... More

Called in for a break from driving around so parked by the Loch, it was very tranquil with the swans swimming close by and a little further away were some canoeists having fun, and some sail boats that looked like they were practicing racing, there was a lot of other wildlife around also, recommend to anyone who wants a peaceful...

Having stayed here several years ago when the hotel had a different owner I was looking forward to staying here again.it would seem however that nothing has been done to upgrade the hotel since my last visit. It really does need a little time effort and money spent on it to recapture the quality previously seen here. That said staff... More

I had the unfortunate experience of needing a hotel room in this 1970's town. I made a mistake of booking this "hotel" for £85 !!! It was probably worth about £25 The car park behind the hotel is straight out of a horror movie - pitch dark with no lights or any "entrance" signs, not a great start. I was... More

What a find! Taken by a friend who lives locally and introduced to some of the best beer I have tasted accompanied by the compulsory Scotch pie. Brilliant way to spend a wet & wintry Saturday afternoon with no TV', music or distractions. Just a good old fashioned pub built on the side of its own brewery. Magic!

Castle Douglas packed on a Saturday night. Our B&B host recommended two places for food but these and other restaurants were full or we'd have to wait a long time for service, so we continued looking and saw the Douglas Arms had a nice looking dining room with spare tables. We were welcomed and served very helpfully by friendly staff.... More

We booked in for two nights in April 2015 after buying a groupon. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was very old fashioned an desperately in need of repair and a good clean of their carpets. The bed was very uncomfortable and I had to ask for an additional duvet just to pad it out a little. The... More
