“Wonderful place in the Scottish countryside”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

The Kirroughtree House is a beautiful place in southwest Scotland. The service is excellent. Jim and his staff are very kind and take great care of their guests. The food is delicious and the breakfast and dinner menus have a nice variety of selections. If you want to get away to the country, this is a great place to go. The beds are comfortable, the rooms spacious, and you will get a good quiet night's rest. Although the rooms are a bit dated and could use an update of soft goods, I recommend the Kirroughtree House to anyone traveling to the Dumfries & Galloway region. The hotel has wifi service, but it does not work consistently. This was a return visit for us, and we very much enjoyed it. I would definitely stay here again.

Looking for a hotel to stay in while mountain biking with my son at 7stanes I found this lovely Scottish country hotel only 10 minutes cycle ride from the start of the trails (which by the way are excellent) The staff were all very friendly and helpful, we had a lovely room and the meal on the Saturday night was excellent. If you need wifi access this is probably not the best place to go, but maybe one wants to escape the internet at times

We have revisited the Kirroughtree after a gap of about ten years and were very disappointed. After our first visit the thing most of our party talked about for many years was the wonderful food. How things have changed! The rooms are still spacious but there is an air of faded grandeur about the place. The meal portions were very small and "extra" vegetables had to be requested. The menu choices were very limited. Two of our party were given fish at breakfast which was off, and the response on complaining was that no-one else had complained and that it was within the use by date. Breakfast that morning was a shambles.

Difficult to see how it warrants two AA rosettes.

Visited in August and September (latter only because two members of the party had to drop out of the August trip.

My partner and I had Supper at Kirroughtree whilst we were house hunting in the area. The hotel is very plush and extremely inviting with its warm decor and interiors.
The Dining room was beautifully decorated and enhances the dining experience. I chose the Wood Pigeon for my starter which was tasty well presented. We both had the roast beef for our main course which was absolutely exquisite! Cooked to perfection and very satisfying. For dessert we both enjoyed the Ecclefechan Tart which we had never tried before. It did not disappoint with the combinations of fruit, tart and cream being extremely delicious! Beautiful supper, would highly recommend.

A charming hotel set in spacious grounds and well situated for visiting places both East and West.
All facilities are first class and there is a very relaxed ambiance. Staff are attentive and quickly learn your 'needs'.
Breakfast sets you up well for the day (do try the citrus segments) and the evening meal is carefully thought out, we'll balanced and delicious.
Rooms are large and comfortable. Ask if room 17 is available. It catches the evening sun and is the size of 3 normal hotel rooms.
We chose to spend 3 nights when there was no moon and were able to enjoy fantastic views of the skies. Seeing the Milky Way was a highlight.
I can thoroughly recommend Kirroughtree.

Kirroughtree is an elegant house in beautiful grounds, off the beaten track and offering peace and tranquility. We sat in the gardens for hours without seeing another soul except the waitress that brought us afternoon tea.

Gidleigh Park this is not; the rooms are elegant and large but slightly tired, the restaurant service quiet and enthusiastic but lacking the professionalism of a truly great country hotel. Having said that the food is good and fair value.

We went to Kirroughtree on the recommendation from friends who loved it. I thought it a little expensive for what it was, have no regrets, but would not go again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view at the front of the hotel.
