Just off the main road, so its not a tranquil location, but a warm welcome. Very clean and tidy. We had room 6 - which has the jacuzzi bath - very welcome considering I was there to participate in Tough Mudder just up the road at Drumlanrig Castle. Rooms are very clean, cosy and comfy - although a wee biscuit... More

Spent a night at this hotel on our way to Edinburgh and what a surprise. Its an antique lovers paradise. The owner greated us with casual warm and friendliness.

We stopped for a night in our VW Camper on route to Glasgow from Norwich for University Open Days. We were a Mum & 17 year old daughter travelling alone together and we felt perfectly safe here. Ideally located for us, with electric hook up, very welcoming & just £15 for the night. Don't expect total peace & quiet as... More

I found this place after going to watch football in Carlisle and then couldn't be bothered to drive back to Oxford. Originally booked two twin rooms at £75 each but got an email saying they couldn't fulfil my booking but I could have the bungalow. I was slightly sceptical about the bungalow and was expecting a shack in a garden... More

Tried this as an unplanned stop-over before the ferry to Mull.

Kirkconnel Hall Hotel has a highly visable location adjacent to junction 19 of the A74M on the edge of the country village of Ecclecfechan. It is only 10 miles north of Gretna and is well located in an area of south west Scotland popular for both short breaks, weddings, functions and business conferences. Originally home to the Arnott family Kirkconnel Hall dates as far back as the 15th century, providing the property with great historic interest. It was home to Napoleon's physician in the late 18th Century and although extended in the 1870's and again more recently, it retains much of its period charm. Aquired by its present owners Kirkconnel Hall is now a family owned and run business and we look forward to welcoming you and hope that you have an enjoyable stay with us.
