Star Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Twynholm B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Staff were very accommodating of our large family with young children and dogs. The goody bags on arrival for dogs and children were a nice touch. Good homemade pub grub, very hearty breakfasts with wide selection and very flexible on timing.
The accommodation was very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. Would recommend this small, friendly family run traditional inn.

While staying in Kirkcudbright for the week, we decided to go for a meal at the Star Hotel and what an excellent experience we had! The location of the hotel is lovely, the food was delicious and reasonably priced and the lady that served us, Lynda, was a joy. We developed a lovely rapport with her and a lot of laughing and joking ensued. The food is all freshly made after your order is taken and i absolutely recommend the Stroganoff which i had without mushrooms, a very rare treat. There were 5 of us dining that night and every one agreed that the food was excellent. If you are in the area i strongly recommend you have a meal here.

My family and I have just spent the weekend at the Star Hotel, Twynholm for a "special" birthday treat and the whole experience was wonderful. The location and setting of the hotel is just perfect and the warm friendly atmosphere that hits you from the moment you walk through the door - from the owner and staff - is second to none! We took over all the lovely "unique" accommodation and could not fault the superb evening meal (with lots of choices to suit all ages) and the good old Scottish breakfast on the Sunday morning! The staff did everything to please, but in a natural way, and certainly made a huge contribution to the success of our family weekend, making it very memorable indeed. First class all the way at a very reasonable cost! Will definitely be back again - sooner rather than later!

As a regular visitor to the Star Hotel I find the staff friendly and very helpful, making my time as stress free as possible. A great village pub where your made to feel like one of the locals. I would highly recommend paying the Star Hotel a visit if your in the area.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We do make mistakes, as all establishments will, but we always put our hands up when things go wrong and try to ensure it doesn't happen again. It's therefore so nice when people take the time to make positive and complimentary comments. Thank you and we hope to you again soon. Suzie

My partner and myself recently stayed at the star hotel for a night and ended up staying 3. Very friendly and welcoming to myself and my partner. Will certainly be back! Great pub grub food just what we were looking for. Have done and would recommend if you are looking for little quiet village pub with friendly staff and great food

From the outside the Star could do with a paint but don't let this put you off! We stayed here whilst visiting the area as it's where my family come from. The pub must be about 150 years old so ozzes with scotish character! Rooms were lovely nice and clean and just what we needed! They were separate from the hotel which meant less disturbance when the locals trot home! My great granny said during ww1 that two men from twynholm were looking up at the night sky and one said is that the star of Bethlehem and the other replied 'Yes but I'd rather see the Star of Twynholm' I certainly hope to see the star of twynholm very soon!
