Booked this hotel for a 2nt break on a special deal having read the reviews which on a whole were very good. We have just returned home and can advise that we had an excellent stay.
The hotel is not far from the motorway making it easy to find, stands in nice grounds and is surrounded by fields. You can hear a little distant motorway noise outside at times but we did not hear any noise from it within the hotel. You really need a car as it would be a fair walk into Lockerbie.
From making the initial booking until checking out we could not have received a better service, all of the staff were very friendly and nothing was a problem. Everyone seemed to enjoy their work and their service was attentive without been overbearing.
The hotel is well maintained throughout and we were allocated a garden room which was spacious and well equipped, we had glorious weather on 29th and made full use of the patio area outside our garden room.
The lounge and bar area are small and cosy but probably right for the size of the hotel, but can understand one of previous reviewers saying it was crowded when wedding function was taking place.
The quality of the food in the restaurant is very good, especially the cooked breakfast. We had our evening meal in the hotel on both evenings and found our choices to be of a very good standard and reasonably priced. Please note that there is a more extensive wine list available, the cards on the tables just advise of the house wines which are also available by the glass,
we weren't aware of this until 2nd evening. We also found the price of drinks in the hotel to be reasonably priced which was good as it would be a fair walk to another watering hole or a toss of the coin on who was driving and not drinking.
Glen was very helpful in suggesting places of interest within a short drive. We enjoyed a morning at the Tibetan monastery and an afternoon in Moffat.
The only thing that stops us from giving this super little hotel 5 stars is that we found the bed rather uncomfortable (could feel springs) and think perhaps it was due for replacement.
The hotel asks for constructive comments which is good and we have suggested that wi-fi be extended to the bedrooms.
We would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel and its staff to our family and friends and will stay again if visiting this area of Scotland in the future. Give it a try, we are sure you will enjoy this wee gem.
