Myself and my Wife had been invited along with a number of friends to Langholm, So we all decided that we would stay at the Eskdale Hotel after reading some of the excellent reviews this Hotel has been receiving. This Hotel has recently been refurbished and I can only say that we were not disappointed. The Eskdale gives a warm family feeling the moment you walk through the door, and we were also given a very warm welcome by the owner and staff who throughout our stay made sure they attended to all our needs. Our newly refurbished room and bathroom was immaculate and was very well kept. The food at this Hotel is also terrific and all fresh and very well presented, Even if you can’t stay for a night then I would recommend popping in for lunch or dinner, Highly recommended.
I would have say this has to be one of the best Hotels the borders has to offer in that it is both warm, welcoming and great value for money, I Just can’t praise the staff enough they really do go that extra mile and I certainly will be back very soon, well done. Tommy & Suzie

Called here for lunch on New Year's Day after giving up on long queues in Liddesdale Arms and The Grapes in Newcastleton. Absolutely spotless inside including the bathrooms. Barman nice dry sense of humour and very helpful. Food not overly elaborate and very good. Soup (tomato and red pepper) full of chunky tomatoes, flavoursome and hot. Nicely dressed salad beside the other dishes (chicken club sandwich and cheese and ham toastie). Highly recommend.

My stay was only for 2 nights and I have to say I wished it had been for longer! The hotel had a lovely entrance and a relaxing atmosphere. Although it is a big building it had a nice cosy feeling.The rooms were lovely, clean and very well equipped.
The staff were very welcoming and attentive throughout my stay. The food was fantastic, all freshly prepared and nice to see seasonal choices on a menu too. The Afternoon teas are real value for money.
Langholm itself is a lovely place and to find such a gem in a spot like this was a bonus. I cannot recommend this place enough. If you visit Langholm and the borders you simply must stay here and even if you are not staying you must at the very least try the afternoon tea.
I will definitely return.

I was dubious of returning to eat here after having stayed for a couple of tonight's a few years ago, when we found it a dour dingy place with food to match. However, as soon as we entered the hotel I noticed a difference. It was cleaner, fresher and a warm welcome from the new owner. Because it was a Saturday lunch we decided to eat lunch in the bar. The food was very well presented and tasted very fresh. We were also made welcome by the locals who were drinking in the bar. Before we left we made a booking for 8 people in the restaurant the next evening. All of us commented how god the food and service was. Will be returning again, that's a cert! It's place's like this we cannot afford to lose Please try it for yourselves.
