“Lovely setting”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We stayed in the above for one night. excellent value and the location is wonderful. Set in serene parkland university setting.
The room was in the new part and we faced the church. the gardens are stunning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the church.

We stayed at this fabulous hotel for our wedding as we were getting married in the Crichton Church. The accommodation was exceptional value for money. The hotel was a fantastic venue to have our wedding breakfast, with the food being fabulous and also value for money. On the day of the wedding, a few hiccups occured that had nothing to do with the hotel, but were instantly put right by the staff of this hotel as they arose to ensure our day went smoothly. The staff were exceptional and we felt they went above and beyond the call of duty, We felt they made our wedding. The rest of our guests could not have sung the praises higher regarding this hotel and it's staff. Highly recommended!!!!

We stayed here overnight on our way further north, but would recommend it for a longer stay. The grounds are amazing, ask for a room with a view over the gardens/church. The rooms are a good size with everything you need and well maintained and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Great breakfast, although buffet the hot food was regularly replenished rather than volume being kept hot. Overall a good overnight stop for us but would consider a longer stay next time.

Room Tip: Request views over the gardens and church not the car park.

Came here on a double Itison deal so were booked for four nights. We enjoyed it so much that we booked for a 5th night - and even got a brill deal on that (DB&B for the price of B&B.
The room was a decent size with very comfy king-size bed. Nice to have two chairs and appreciated the free wi-fi. TV was a bit disappointing, with only half-a-dozen channels and no way of knowing what was on.
The garden view was lovely though. The hotel is in extensive grounds, well-worth a walk round.
The shower is one of the best I've ever used. Very spacious, hot and powerful. Staff were all very helpful and friendly.
Food was first class and portions at dinner were plentiful. One small irritation was that staff cleared away the cooked breakfast items from the buffet ahead of "closing time" and we felt under pressure to vacate our seats quicker than we'd have liked.
However our overall experience was an excellent one and we'd highly recommend The Aston as a base for exploring the area.

Made an overnight stopover here as part of a larger group. The rooms were good, the staff friendly and the food - a set mene for the large group, suprisingly good.

The grounds made a nice backdrop and the location is excellent.

Booked via ITISON and was excellent value . Hotel was great, staff very friendly and made feel welcome. Room was lovely with comfy bed and powerful shower. Breakfast buffet 1st class and credit to the chefs for keeping it freshly made with constant topping up.only downside was expensive bar prices. We actually saved money going into Town with taxi . Overall highly recommended . Beautiful grounds makes an ideal setting .

Pleased to see we have another satisfied guest from our ITISON offer. Thank you for your comments especially those on the staff who will be delighted to read. Bar prices are higher than some other, perhaps not similar establishment in town. This coupled with very reasonable taxi fares compared to other places may give this impression but overall I feel we give excellent value in all our special offers. Best Regards Mike Phillips

Went along to the Aston for a 3 night dbb trip were originally given a room facing onto car park which isnt nice as gardens are great but got a swap no problem.Rooms are very nice ,modern with a great shower(no bath) but as other folks have said the tv is a shocker .I believe this is a poor area for reception but six channels with no sound on two and awful pictures on all.I know its not the main reason to go on a break to watch tv but even trying to check weather etc it would be useful to have a "working" tv.Bed fine and tea and coffee good.The meals are as one reviewer already wrote 4 star ,probably better in fact.Plenty of gluten-free choices ,only quibble the specials each night seemed to run out early each of the three nights something was a goner and booked at 8 oclock which isnt that late.The staff are absolute stars from front desk to the waiters and waitreesses and housekeeping too .Very friendly and attentive ,thank you all .Would go back no problem.

Room Tip: Ask for upper floor with a view to gardens and hills
