Kenmuir Arms Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 New Luce B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 March 2016

We stayed 2 nights 18 to 19th March. The proprietors said this was off the beaten track. Not so, it is only 9 miles to Stranraer, so is ideally placed for exploring the Rhins, the Machars and the Galloway Forest Parks. Dumfries itself is little more than an hour away ! If you are more energetic it is idal for golfers, fishermen, hill walkers and shooting parties. Room clean and tidy, and very comfortable. Breakfast is booked the night before using a tick list, and is very good. Public bar is cosy and well stocked, the Red McGregor is a pint to die for. The restaurant is reasonably priced, and has a varied selection and is extremely well prepared. Highly recommend a visit if you are in the area. Mr and Mrs A W.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

Stayed here for two nights recently whilst walking the southern upland way,this is a lovely little oasis in New Luce, rooms are clean and tidy with ample supply of hot water. Food prepared by Alison is very good and Paul behind the bar makes sure the ale is up to scratch,made to feel very welcome by Alison and Paul.likewise the "locals" in the bar,a friendly lot.absolutely no hesitation in recommending to other walkers and cyclists. Keep up the good work.Thanks again

Last minute booking for the last night of our two week Scotland holiday and this was just what was needed. Cosy, no fuss, no frills, just lots of warm hospitality, great value food, fab real ale, in a lovely setting. Wish we had discovered this earlier in the week. Think this place may currently be for sale, but hope when it sells, it does not change too much.

We spent the night at Kenmuir Arms, lovely room, 3 course dinner just as good as we remembered it from our last visit, breakfast filled us up and was served with a smile! Nice quiet location, and very friendly owners and guests! Thanks Alison and Paul, not to forget the four new resident ducks! Hope to see you soon!
