I am just back from a lovely break away for my partner and I's 3 year anniversary, we booked a fantastic itison deal for £99 which included 2 nights B&B, prosecco, fruit & chocolate in the room and afternoon tea.
When we arrived we were checked in quickly by friendly reception staff, we had a basic room which had a lovely widescreen tv, a massive kingsize bed and fantastic power shower - comfortable and pleasant. We had prosecco, fantastic handmade tartan choclate and 3 pieces of fruit in the room (hardly a fruit basket but still nice!). We had our afternoon tea shortly after arriving, most of it was lovely however we weren't asked what kind of bread or sandwhich filling we wanted - not the end of the world since it was included in an amazing deal ! The cakes were scrumptious however as was the breakfast on both mornings - a fab selection of cooked and continental.
The only downside was the unexpected busyness of the restaurant on our 2nd night and morning - a function was being held meaning we were turned away for dinner (asked to wait 1.5 hours) and the next morning at breakfast it was extremely busy as well. However the staff are lovely so wasn't an issue. The hotel is set on lovely grounds which we toured each night although we did dine out both nights for dinner - there are some fantastic restaurants in Dumfries - well worth a visit to Little Italy or Daksh (indian) both fantastic, although you would need a car to reach them as the hotel is quite a trek from town.
All in all, we had a lovely relaxing visit and would definately recommend Dumfries for a break and the Aston as a hotel.
