“Good hotel”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Stayed here twice now. Good food, good hotel. It's a couple of miles to the centre of Dumfries. Ate food here one night and that was good as well. Would stay here again. No sky TV channels for sport (If that makes a difference). Good breakfast in a very picturesque setting

The location if this hotel is stunning. situated in the grounds of the University of Glasgow, Dumfries Campus it is absolutely stunning.
We were very lucky in that we had a bright sunny autumn weekend where he grounds were displayed at their absolute best. The trees were in their autumn colours and the winter blooms were at their best. We went to the wedding venue where the caretaker showed us around and showed us how the weddings were catered for.
te church was very near and absolutely stunning, with a very peacefiul outlook

Room Tip: the rooms are all good

Can't rate this hotel highly enough. I'm sure it's only a three star because it doesn't have a pool or spa. We had an adjoining room for my disabled mother. Rooms are nicely furnished with a huge comfy bed and great shower room.
Very pleasant lounge with fire and large screen tv. Previous review mentioned high prices for drinks. We didn't find this the case.
Dinner was vg I enjoyed the monkfish and king prawn. All ingredients are sourced locally.
Staff are all very courteous and friendly.
Great place to explore Dumfries and Galloway.

Have been to the Aston many times for coffee and several times for lunch. last coffee visit was September 2012. Have already booked this year again to go with the office for Christmas lunch and the menu looks great. The seating in the lounge/coffee area is comfortable and the staff are attentive.

Given its formal appearance you may expect that this hotel could be a bit stuffy and rigid. When we arrived ready for a good knees up at a friends wedding, with a rowdy crowd this couldn't have been further from the reality we experienced. The entire staff were more than helpful with every request an made us feel very welcome and catered for our every need. The staff made the day and the stay very special and joined in the party whilst remaining extremely professional. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel in a beautiful setting to anyone and hopefully we will return someday soon. Many thanks for the warm welcome and excellent service!

Just returned from a two night stay at this lovely hotel. Staff very helpful and courteous, food lovely, clean and comfortable rooms. Would definitely return and recommend excellent value for money. Very comfortable beds and large shower. Good choice at dinner although many main courses had supplements added. For the price paid on eaaybreaks website this was actually justified. Hotel is well signposted through town centre.

We thoroughly enjoyed our four night break at the Aston. The room was very comfortable, the meals were excellent with good service and the staff were most helpful. We were very sorry to leave as it had been a nice wee break. This hotel is situated in a lovely part of Dumfries and we would love to return someday.
