Stayed here for 3 nights as a base for our fishing trip on the nearby River Nith with 3 friends. Cleanliness of the rooms is superb, albeit my room was quite small and the bed was very low, but I got used to it.
Peter and his staff are very friendly and welcoming. Zara in the bar has a tremendous personality and makes everyone welcome.
The food is excellent with a wide choice to suit all tastes. Only slight disappointment was the lack of marmalade at breakfast, but this not deter from a thoroughly enjoyable stay at the Thornhill Inn and I very much look forward to returning.
