Don't let the delapidated exterior deter you from entering. Our room was basic but clean and comfortable. The owners are charming and couldn't have been more helpful. Breakfast was fine. The Royal is centrally located for access to the delights of Kirkcubright and and excellent value for money.

Stayed: August 2012, travelled as a couple

We had a very pleasant overnight stay at this family run hotel. The welcome and service were exceptional, with a warm welcome and great service from the enthusiastic new owners and staff who are working hard to re-establish The Royal to its former splendor. The breakfast was magnificent.

This place is a disgrace to Kirkcudbright and Scotland and should be closed down.

We had a very unpleasant stay here and things have obviously not changed since our stay. At the time some guests just left regardless of whether they has already paid or not.

No hot water in the room and a leaky ceiling. The rude owner simply couldn't care less about things like this and just makes comments like "what do you except for £70 a night". He made no effort whatsoever to resolve the problems.

You won't get a decent night's sleep either due to the uproar from the public bar, which goes on until all hours. I could go on and on about how bad this place is. Just avoid it at all costs and stay anywhere else in the lovely town of Kirkcudbright.

Rating is sub Terrible.

Was in the area for a brief visit after being away for some years, I was excited at the prospect of meeting up with friends in what used to be our local. However... most refused to meet there are it was clear to see why. The hotel is in a state of disrepair, dirty and lifeless. The hotel is clearly just being used as an extended livingroom for the abrupt, dirty and downright rude manager to drink. Please do yourself a favour and stay in one of the beautiful bed and breakfasts in Kirkcudbright or any of the other hotels in the area. You have been warned about this...... Hole. Please dont spoil your holiday as I did.
