“Convenient for mountain biking”
Reviewed 3 September 2009

Mabie House Hotel is friendly and set in a beautiful location. The twin room I stayed in was enormous, but had a slightly odd smell and my bed made so much noise when I rolled over that I ended up putting the matress on the floor the second night.

It's perfectly located for the 7 Stanes mountain biking, and serves a decent Scottish breakfast to keep you going. They went out of their way to accommodate our group of mountain bikers, allowing us to dry our damp clothes in the hallway and keeping the bar open when we arrived back late.

Down to Dumfries on a short business trip, decided to combine with a bit of leisure so brought the family for a break. Couldn`t have wished for a better venue. lovely big room overlooking the garden, rabbits on the lawn and sun streaming in in the morning. Breakfasted early and got on with with I had to do, partner and kids set off with a packed lunch, provided by the Hotel,to explore Mabie forest on moutain bikes hired locally, suggestions from a knowledgeable local staff on things to see and do. We all had a great break and I even got in some golf.
Good comfortable hotel with sizeable portions of well cooked and presented food, nothing too much trouble for the friendly staff, out of hours breakfast, flask of coffee, plasters for grazed knees, and close to but not in the town. When I am in Dumfries I know where I will be staying, Eddie Shaw. Dornie. Ross-Shire

Coming from London it wasa total change of pace and when we arrived we were blown away by the wonderful scenery and the imposing granduer of the house. The rooms were amazing with fantastic views over the countryside. It was also interesting to learn a little about the history of the house and explore some of the lovely forests surrounding, next itme I will most definitely be bringing my mountain bike! Breakfast was second to none and I shall defintely be back.

What a GREAT place..
I have stayed at Mabie House on many occasions, sometimes for business and sometimes for pleasure and its always been a pleasure to stay.
The staff are welcoming and attentive, the rooms are spacious and there are different sizes to choose from so all party sizes are catered for, the food is amazing (dont get me started on the massive breakfast.!) and the whole place is just geared around a chilled out stay.
Its location in the heart of Mabie forest means its great for walking and biking and there are other great attractions around too. My wife and I alsop had our engagment party here and it was just perfect, a really chilled out affair, very romantic and we were well looked after by the staff as usual, nothing is ever too much trouble.
I have also used the camping pods in the grounds and these are a great budget addition for a group to stay in, and you can still pop in for a meal and a beer and of course the legendary scottish breakfast...!!
Highly Recommended.......

We wanted to be able to use our mountain bikes in safe off road tracks go for country walks and yet have a comfortable room for ourselves with food that we would enjoy. Once our two teenagers saw the magical camping Pods, down on the secluded lawns, they wanted to stay outside; and as we had sleeping bags in the car it was no problem.

The Hotel is only 45 minutes from the M6 north of Carlisle and 10 minutes from Dumfries .

We all want to return to see some more of the countryside and coastline nearby. A great holiday for all, and some excellent golf courses all within 5 or 6 miles
