Stayed here overnight on a trip around Galloway. Had a very good sized double room with comfortable beds. Food was very good indeed including the full breakfast in the morning. Good value for money and would return.

The housekeeping staff were especially helpful in dealing with all our wet walking gear, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the service in the dining room was efficient and nothing was too much trouble. We dined in the...

I ran a short course in the hotel and stayed there for a week and the staff were fantastic. They went above and beyond to support both myself and those on the course. The food was lovely and I had a comfy room. I was given an extra heater as I am a cold tattie. I was most impressed by...

The manager and all staff were very empathetic to our needs , even letting our dog come with us. The bar meals at night were excellent , even though we had a vegetarian and...

Visited in March, very cold, snow on hills, biting Arctic winds. And NO heating! Slept in cardigan & socks, but when we complained we were told heating is on a timer. Staff appeared surprised that heating was an issue, but supplied fan heater for room. We picked a table beside a radiator,but it wasn't on. Lovely breakfast spoiled by lack...

Stayed for 2 nights. I found the 2 young staff particularly helpful and friendly, as well as the manager. The evening meals were excellent quality and the cooked breakfast was good. Unfortunately there was a problem with the alarm when I stayed so this is why "sleep" is marked down but this was a temporary problem I am sure.

Stayed overnight before catching an early ferry from Cairnryan. Nice room, impeccably clean with a big bathroom. Not at all busy but even so e young man on reception was charming and most helpful.
