It's a lovely hotel inside and out. As you walk in in December you are greeted by a gorgeous big old fashioned Christmas tree which just makes you feel all warm and cosey. We have stayed a few times and each time the staff have been very pleasant and always there if you need anything. The breakfast is a buffet...

While attending a dance weekend we had a lovely time in this hotel. 5 course meals superb breakfasts. The staff were on the ball and the rooms lovely and clean. For me and my wife we could find nothing to complain about so can highly recommend a stay.

Not the most modern of hotels.Was undergoing some refurb,so our breakfast suffered from the temporary dining area. On the plus side. leisure club is good, prices fair,friendly staff and good central location for...

Very nice hotel centrally situated in Dumfries. Staff were all very good, helpful, attentive and knowledgable. The leisure facilities are very nice - pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. None of these facilities are huge, but all were very good to use/relax in and were all in very good condition. Did not use gym or cafe but both looked nice/well...

We went for the Blues Brothers tribute night, did the two night stay. Hotel is really quite good, the meal the first night (Friday) was excellent. Not so good on the tribute night, meat pretty tough, probably due to the mass catering. Rooms were spacious. Only 5 minutes was to town centre, and plenty of parking. The only issue we...

The Blues Brothers perform 2 x45 minute sets with one of the sets dedicated to the Blues Brothers. On their last visit...

A very welcoming hotel with cheerful, helpful staff including reception, asst manager, leisure club and restaurant. Not a modern hotel but comfortably warm and clean. From the lobby it was a short staircase and corridor down to a surprisingly pleasant leisure area with a good number of modern, exercise devices and , behind glass a irregular shaped, 1.1m pool with...

Went on a DBB overnight deal - £39.50pp. Adequate parking at rear & reception was smooth. Had a front facing room on 2nd floor which was small but comfortable. Strange arrangement for lights as one of the bedside lights also switched on the main light. There was only a bedside table at one side. Found the bed rather bouncy but...

Hi Jack. Thank you for your excellent feedback following your recent visit to the hotel. Our recent offer was a fantastic deal and if you take off VAT at 20%, free Wifi and a bouncy bed it's an unbeatable bargain!

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback following your recent visit to the hotel. As with any offer "our best room available" is just that - subject to availability and dependent on other bookings in the hotel. Clearly we cannot offer everyone our "best room" with priority being given to guests who have paid full price...
