“Balcary Bay Hotel”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

My wife and I recently stared here, this was our second visit (the first being 10 years ago) but nothing had changed. The food was still excellent, the staff friendly and extremley helpful.
The views are absolutely stunning over the Bay and Solway Firth. We will definitly return in the future.

Having stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions, it is the first time that everything was not absolutely wonderful.
The room, beautiful, the food, outstanding, unfortunately the restaurant staff fell short of the usual high standard. Leaning across in front of you, not knowing what they were serving.After the meal,
in the bar we were served a brandy in a tumbler. A bit of training neaded.

Come on Graham, this is not what people expect!

Wonderful location with stunning views of the bay. Exceptional value for money and somewhere you could return to on a regular basis The staff were all very obliging and the food served for all meals was exceptional with good choices This is somewhere we felt that you didn`t have to leave at all during your stay for other restaurants unless you wanted to!! Very nice local walks for the dog too

This is a beautiful hotel set in a fantastic location. Quiet and off the beaten track. The rooms are comfortable and well presented. We found the service to be efficient and unobtrusive. The four course evening meal was delightful each night and the menu changed daily. The Scottish breakfast more than set us up for the day. The hotel is at the edge of a beach, which was ideal for the canine member of our party. This hotel was perfect for a restful weekend.

The hotel more than lived up to expectations. The garden view room we had was beautifully appointed, with lovely touches like a personalised welcome letter and free chocolates, and the meal and breakfast were excellent. What a beautiful setting too.

Room Tip: We chose a garden view room, as it was cheaper, and the high winds off the sea that particular night...

My husband and I have just returned from Balcary Bay. What a wonderful setting, so close to the Solway Firth, in a secluded bay off the larger Auchencairn Bay.
The room was lovely and comfortable, with very pleasant decor, and a wonderful view of the bay.
The food in the restaurant was delicious, and the owner was quietly efficient and looked after his guests well.

Room Tip: Worth paying a little extra for a bay view
