Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a lovely stay here after a road trip in the Scottish highlands. All staff were polite and very helpful and the views over the bay and golf course really make this hotel. The highlight for us was the food we all had absolutely outstanding meals! The hotel is lovely and clean we will definitely return!

Always nice food and value. Polite staff. Latest visit my only complaint would be the roast potatoes, reminded me of something you got served at school in the 80’s, not crisp, not fluffy, dehydrated and dry. Us Brits all know a good roaster! Friends agreed , not great. (An alarming observation was the amount of drivers drinking alcohol, Scotland is zero tolerance. Pretty scary. I understand it’s the drivers choice and you don’t need to ask questions but it’s alarming nonetheless)

Booked direct with the hotel for a stopover while en route Scotland to Wales. arrived in the dark and woke to a glorious sunrise over the Solway Firth before it turns into the river Esk. Very friendly welcome and an upgrade to the 3 rooms I had booked over the phone. Large comfortable rooms at the front of the hotel, two of which had balconies. Enjoyed dinner in the bar, which was excellent and good value. Good wine by the glass, great draught beer and very good service. The owner was a mine of local information, and made us feel very 'at home'. Breakfast was just as good and on the journey South we all agreed that we had made a really lucky find and would make a point of staying there again, perhaps in the summer to explore the area fully.

Wow. What a lovely hotel. It might have been a cold dark November night but it was warm and cosy with a lovely fire creating a perfect bar area for a fabulous meal. The food was excellent and so was the service. It was our first visit to the hotel and it certainly won't be our last. My only hope is that the weather is better next time so that my husband can get a game of golf at Powfoot golf club.

We stayed at Powfoot for the final night of a bike packing tour of the Galloway region. The location was perfect for us and we were treated to a sea view room, superb. Everything was perfect. A friendly welcome, a beautifully appointed room, quiet and comfortable, delicious evening meal at a very reasonable price and breakfast was perfect too. All the staff were happy to go out of their way to help and ensure our stay was just right. We’ve already discussed a future visit.

I travelled to the Powfoot Hotel with a group of friends. Our rooms had been booked in advance. I had to navigate for a friend who took me to the hotel. When we approached Annan there was a warning about closed roads. Eventually I found the minor road to Powfoot village. When we travelled through Powfoot we thought we had missed the hotel. The hotel was almost the last place in Powfoot with ample parking places for residents. We entered through the main entrance near the car park then turned right. The reception desk was small. We were directed to our room. From the first meeting with staff to the finish of our holiday the staff were very pleasant and most helpful. Breakfast was booked for 8.30am. The meal of bacon, black pudding and haggis was a little small but tasty. On another day I tried scrambled egg, again it was very good. The midday meal was booked for 1.30pm. There was a wide choice of starters, main meals and desserts. I ordered different meals each day. We did not have to wait long before the meals were delivered. All but one meal were well presented, hot and full of flavour. One day I ordered pigeon. Sorry, but it was the worst meal I have ever had. I did National Service and studied to qualify for a forest supervisor where meals were rubbish but you had to eat them to survive. The evening meals were first class but many meals were described in a ‘foreign language’ which is so unnecessary. Overall the holiday was first class and enjoyable

Perfect place to get away too. It was lovely and quiet, the rooms were spotless and maintained. The staff were very friendly and accomodating and the food here was very good.

We had the afternoon tea here and we were blown away! The service was warm and friendly, and the staff members couldn't do enough to help. The sandwiches and cake selection were wonderful; something for everyone's taste and it was all delicious. We were able to use the first floor suite, which was lovely and comfortable with an amazing view over the Solway firth to the Lake District in the distance. A fantastic experience all round.
