The staff at the hotel were brilliant in our 'hour of need'. After a fantastic day's cycling in the forest, we returned to the car to discover that we had lost the car key! Aaaagh.......wallet , mobile phone,house keys etc all in the car........and we were camping several miles from here......
Hotel were so accommodating; allowing us to use their phone, providing reviving cups of tea......and despite our muddy attire, making us feel so welcome! Amazing - and so refreshing to have staff who really cared!
Cannot thank the owner enough for looking after us; and best of all....that the car key was handed in!
Hotel and grounds really wonderful......and cannot wait to try out one of the 'garden pods' on our next cycle adventure to Mabie Forest!

Classy hotel in a part of Scotland that I've fallen in love with. Gorgeous setting. If you like to hike, there are trailheads into the Mabie Forest a minute from the hotel's front door. If you like to bike, there's a bike rental shop next door (The Shed) and bike trailheads that leave from there. The hiking & biking trails are various distances & difficulty; all are well-marked. I was very impressed.

The hotel is clean, comfortable, and the rooms are spacious by European standards. Staff was friendly & helpful. Breakfast was good. Close to perfect.

Only downsides: No internet or phone anywhere in the hotel. Dumfries is 5 miles away; you'll pay about 8 pounds to take a taxi from town & back in, or you can catch a bus that stops about a half mile from the hotel. Small complaints, though, given the beauty of this setting.

I love this part of Scotland & hope to get back often; this is where I'll stay every time.

i will start of by saying this is the third time Ive stayed here and it is every bit as good as before. Ive stayed in the rooms and the pods and enjoyed my stay what ever the accommodation. this last visit i was travelling alone so stayed in the hotel on a b-b basis. i was there for a 4 day mountain biking break and this was a fantastic central location for everything within 75 miles of there. the room was clean, well equipped with storage for clothes etc. had a flat screen TV with free view for your enjoyment, lovely red hot showers. what more can i say. the bed was a double and was very comfortable at night. my room was at the back of the hotel and i enjoyed watching the red squirrels playing on the bird tables and the nut hangers, its the little things in life that make it sweet. i found the staff were friendly, helpful and informative if i had a request or needed some advice, directions etc. the restaurant/ bar were well stocked and supplied excellent menus at breakfast and evening time. i wasn't there at lunch so cant honestly comment. the surroundings were idyllic and quiet, the forest is a lovely pleasant place to walk and relax or in my case to get my bike out and ride the local mountain bike course. situated close to the motorway made it an easy drive there and i will be back again soon. i paid a premium for being a solo occupant but that is everywhere so no complaints. there was ample safe secure storage for my bike and plenty of parking for guests. fires were on so never cold and nice to sit on the big sofas in the foya when relaxing with a drink. hope this covers everything. 5 stars from me all the way.

We stayed at this hotel as a last minute break. On driving up to the hotel we were stunned by the beautiful location, set within acres of forest, and the hotel grounds were lovingly kept. The room was large, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was fabulous, full scottish was lovely, all hail the chef!
On the negative side, we found the staff seemed a little uncaring. On the occasions we needed assistance we found it lacking: On check in we found the reception staff unresponsive - whilst my husband struggled through doors and up the stairs with 4 bags the receptionist gave an unconcerned "are you alright with them yeah?" as she carried on with what she was doing. When the tv did not work the guy on reception was unhelpful and we had to fix the problem ourselves. On other various requests we found the service lacklustre.

My sisters wedding reception was held here. You really couldn’t have asked for more, the buffet meal was delicious – there was a good range of traditional Scottish food as well as vegetarian options and a hog roast later in the evening.

We played highland games on the lawn which were organised by the managers and danced till we dropped to the fabulous band.

The accommodation was comfortable and the breakfast delicious.

We will definitely be back to explore this area and stay here again. There are camping huts on the grounds and you can hire mountain bikes locally. We saw red squirrels for the first time!

A good base to discover Scotland – close to the coast and only an hour away from the Lakes.
