“Marvellous Greeting and wonderful stay”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

My husband and I have just returned to Lancashire after an overnight stay with our little wesite dog Alfie.
From the moment we entered the hotel the greeting from Alistair was marvellous. He showed us to our room and nothing was too much bother.
The room was perfect. Very clean with a comfy bed.
The staff are excellent and very polite.
The best thing about the whole stay was dinner........... Posh fish and chips came out wrapped in paper with a wedge of lemon on the top..... amazing.
Breakfast the next morning was outstanding and so was the service.
The lady on reception, Joanna was very friendly and even showed us some of the other rooms for when you return.

Stayed there with family in the "cottage" which meant we had a sitting room in one of the rooms which was nice. Local chocolates in the room on the first night and a bottle of water daily as well as the usual tea and coffee in each room.The building is old and the floors are all wonky. Breakfasts where good, I had all three options on our 3 days. Nice smoothie. There was also a fruit cocktail as well as fresh fruit. We ate 2 nights in the restaurant and had a nice meal.

I much prefer small independently owned hotels when I want to chill. This is one of the best. Charming rooms, good food, good beers, wines and spirits and very friendly staff. It is the sort of place you relax in immediately.

The town, Kirkcudbright, is a lovely place with a lot of artists. There are also many attractions nearby.

Proof of the pudding. We are going back in 6 weeks.

Room Tip: None of the rooms have good views but that does not matter as there is plenty to see within a few mi...

Booked here on the day and got the last room in the hotel. This room involved navigating a narrow set of stairs with an overhanging ledge near the top - mind your head.. The room was as described (cosy) and clean. It seemed a little expensive but made up for it in terms of the high standard of (a very well organised, friendly) service and the top quality breakfast.

We took up the option of an evening meal. The rabbit terrine starter was very tender, the surf & turf was a little average, and the duck breast and deserts were top notch. Dining is either in the bar area or the more formal dinning room, both of which are very presentable.

Would recommend for a relaxed weekend away.

Stayed for 3 nights over Easter weekend. Room was very comfortable and quite spacious. Only dined on first evening but meal was particularly good. All staff were very friendly and efficient. Breakfasts were very hearty and enjoyable and I can certainly recommend the Grilled Kippers. They certainly deserve some recognition for their food and service. We will return!

We stayed for three nights over the Easter weekend. The hotel is superb...great facilities, fabulous food, a lovely beer garden (well, it was a sunny Easter for a change!) and a really comfortable bedroom. But all this is nothing compared to the staff, all of whom were welcoming, friendly, attentive and clearly know what hospitality is about. We'll certainly stay here again. It might not be the cheapest in town, but I'm willing to bet it is the best!

We have just returned from an overnight stay at The Selkirk Arms Hotel, it was fantastic, the staff were friendly, rooms were clean and very comfortable and the food was absolutely beautiful, couldn't fault them at all, already looking forward to our next visit. Thanks to Douglas and all the staff.
