We stayed here for the first two nights of a 2 week trip to Dumfries and Galloway and Northern Ireland. We needed somewhere to chill, relax and forget work. The Manor succeeded in doing this for us. The owner welcomed us personally and made us feel at ease throughout our stay. Our room was adequate if small, and the small shower room was utilitarian whilst needing some work (mouldy ceiling, clogged extractor fan for example). It was quiet and adequately comfortable. This establishment is more like a pub with rooms than a "country house hotel". The bar is used by local folks and guests alike. It had a good atmosphere and the food was very good. There is a restaurant as well, but the bar serves bar food and restaurant food in whatever combinations you like, so we preferred the bar as the atmosphere was better. The dishes had some imagination and were cooked to order. The bar is well-stocked and includes a decent local ale. Breakfast was cooked to order and whilst fairly limited in range was nicely done.
So a very acceptable stay. I'd regard this as a budget hotel that does a good job with an informal warm welcome and decent food.More
