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

This hotel is very shabby inside and outside. However on the positive side, the staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. It's location is in the centre of the town with some nice shops, cafes and restaurants.

We booked in for two nights in April. On arrival I could see the signs outside were missing and the paint needed refreshing. Checking in was quickly dealt with and room was found easily. The room was of a decent size but on two levels, with the bathroom down steps. View from the room was rooftops and car park. The... More

We booked this hotel through itison and after reading some reviews I was a bit reserved. But we had a great stay. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The meal we had was lovely too. We spent the night in the bar which was very reasonably priced. Yes, it could do with a little updating and a fresh coat of... More
