“Welcome relief after a long long drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

I visited The Crown Hotel at the end of a week in the Scottish Highlands. I'd just come over the Erskine bridge when I lost all sense of direction and ended up travelling into Dunfries and Galloway. Having never seen the area I decided to carry on. At the end of a long trip I ended up in Castle Douglas looking for good food, company and a warm bed. I found all of these at the Crown. The Rib Eye steak was perfectly cooked and great quality with peppered mushrooms and a mountain of crunchy chips and light fluffy centres. Ale on the bar was drank and even got adopted into one of the locals pub quiz teams for the evening. I couldn't ask for a better end to the day. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the area

Stayed 3 nights and would happily stay again and for longer. The staff make you feel completely at home and I always felt they would do anything for me and at any time - the relaxed atmosphere made the hotel feel cosy and friendly even if the weather tried otherwise!

Cannot review without raving about the food in both quantities and value and quality

Will be back as soon as possible - thanks again to the team!!

Collin and Alexa are fantastic hosts very friendly and welcoming as were all the staff "Sarah is a treasure" I would certainly like to go back, the rooms were clean and fresh and the food was very good and plenty of it, very good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for room 7 it has a huge bay window at the front

Two girl friends and I booked in at the Crown Hotel last weekend when we were visiting Castle Douglas for a wedding. We stayed in the family room (room 7) which was bright and airy with lovely bathroom including decent shower. The owners and staff could not have been more accommodating - there wasn't a hairdryer in the room and when we enquired about one, a member of staff went home and got her own for us to borrow overnight! After a fabulous wedding we arrived back in the wee small hours and although the bar was closing, they served our group drinks until we were ready for bed. Safe to say it was a rather slow start the next day but we were treated to a tasty, hearty breakfast that had us feeling tip top in no time. What's more, it is INCREDIBLE value for money! I could not fault the Crown Hotel - I hope to find an excuse to return to Castle Douglas again soon so I can enjoy another night in this fabulous place.

Great find in castle Douglas, extremely nice landlord and land lady, good pub with spacious clean rooms above. Didn't eat at the hotel in the evening but wished I had after sampling the fantastic breakfast. Will definitely use this hotel again and would recommend it to anyone. I reckon it's the best value for money hotel I've ever stayed in. Thanks for the hospitality.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 7
