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. I rarely give negative reviews as I think everyone can have an off day, but ... the reception was not staffed and we waited absolutely ages to ask about a room. The horrid big hotel dog came barking and growling at us, which terrified the kids and still no... More

This is a small friendly hotel. The bar is nice. The bar food is OK , the service is good, reasonably priced. The downs are there is road noise from the a74 and the bathroom was a little old fashioned. A good place to stop over on a journey . Decent value

We have just stayed for 2 nights to meet up with friends and had a very enjoyable weekend. Our room was very comfortable and we had a really good nights sleep. Everyone was very welcoming. We dined in the hotel and the food and service was excellent. We would definitely recommend it.

For an overnight stop it was fine. Despite the room being very dated - brass 4 poster bed with net frills - it was clean. The waitress was extremely pleasant and the food was delicious! Great value for money and friendly owners.
