“A mixed bag, but overall a positive stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2010

First off, let me say that the worst thing about our two-day stay here was the 6am arrival of some guy delivering wedding brochures for the Sunday Fayre. He woke us up on the Saturday morning with his shouting and we never got back to sleep as delivery after delivery on the gravel drive just jolted us back out of our snooze! Staff were generally very friendly and the hotel is a near- perfect base to explore Dumfries and Galloway's rich and varied attractions.
One thing to note if meat is not your thing: probably best to assure yourself that the main course is a little more that a carved-out pepper stuffed with courgette and aubergines before booking dinner. Whereas our meat-eating relative got some lovely looking scallops on an imaginative plate, we felt a bit let down with the veggie option. The starters were ok though with an above-average Goat's cheese tartlette (where would hotel chefs and their token veggie options be without goat's cheese!) or Figs with Dunsyre Blue Cheese. We had a decent vegetarian breakfast which included perfect fried eggs, beans, mushrooms and nice tattie scones. The toast was yummy and there was a decent selection of cereals and juices.

One more warning: rooms to avoid are the pokey room 9, which our elderly relative had as it was on the ground floor, but it was little bigger than a cupboard and he upgraded to the much bigger room next door for an extra £20. This prevented him from banging in to the wall when he turned over in bed and gave him a bit more space to store his walking sticks! Also, room 1 on the first floor seemed to suffer from plumbimg blues and the waterworks kept the usually heavy sleeping mater-in-law awake for most of the first night.

With a few tweaks, this place could be the perfect base for a visit to the Borders!

Recently stayed at this hotel with my husband, we decided to go a long weekend away. When arriving at the hotel I was impressed with the grounds and the look of the hotel. I knew then I was going to have a good stay. The staff at the hotel were very friendy and knew all the local events which helped to make our stay great. We stayed for dinner at the hotel and they have a good menu on offer at reasonable prices. My husband and I enjoyed a drink in the bar in the evening and again the staff could not do enough to help. The rooms were very clean and warm and breakfast the next day was just as good as Dinner. Thank you to all the staff at the Moffat House Hotel that made our stay one to remember. We are even thinking about going back for Hogmany.

I booked Moffat House Hotel after reading some positive comments on Trip Advisor. Just before our visit we went on again and got quite worried when we read a comment dated 11th September by mcb7.
I’m delighted to report that my worries were totally unfounded. This building is absolutely stunning and the staff a real credit to the place. So friendly and accommodating it felt like a 5 star hotel but at 3 star prices. Our room was very traditional and very spotless. The Hotel has so much character and personality and I can only imagine any dissatisfied customers must be more at home in a travel-lodge!
The food in the Restaurant was brilliant. To have a choice of 3 starters, 4 mains and 4 desserts in a fine dining environment where every dish is specially prepared to such a high standard is quite acceptable. The presentation was beautiful!
The Lounge Menu too was very nice and had alternative options to choose from. I could recommend the Fillet steak which was one of the best I have ever had.
Looking forward to our next visit. Keep up the good work.
