Lovely positioned hotel,easy access from motorway. A little overpriced and our room was quite small and a bit dated, but very clean. We had a carvery for the wedding which was fantastic, service was excellent and staff were lovely. Thanks to Ian, Kyle and Emily and all the other staff, for their hard work and excellent service during the wedding!!!

Hotel needs updating especially the rooms. Dead flies on corridor window ledge. Bar prices very expensive. No drink prices on display. Room menu not up to date. Ate out at a different hotel in Moffat. Would not stay at this hotel again but would chose another hotel in Moffat. Staff friendly and helpful.

We visited the Moffat House Hotel in early June using an off-season Classic Britain dinner/B&B deal, for two nights. We paid extra to allow us to bring our dog, Ollie. On arrival we were taken to one of the 'pet friendly' rooms and the disappointment started here: the room was dusty and had food stains on the wall; the wallpaper was thrown up in a very uneven, patchwork effort that was peeling; we could hear the neighbours downstairs just having a conversation; the en-suite flooring (lino) was poorly laid; the bath panels were uneven and there was mould in most corners. We discovered later that the very basic shower was almost impossible to set to a usable temperature... Remember, we paid MORE for the pet friendly room!

Food over the two nights was poor. Our Classic Britain deal specified a 3-course menu but the staff said this was a mistake and that we had to chose from a smaller menu or eat up to £15 each from any menu we wanted. Fair enough. But the food was frozen fair, re-heated. On the second night I asked for a steak and the chef made a pigs ear out of it and the replacement. The steak was the only bit of actual 'cooking' they were asked to do for us over the two days and they could not get that right and at £20-odd quid for the steak alone, I was unimpressed.

On checking out I was charged twice for one evenings meal - even though I was on a DB&B deal. This was refunded but only after a few days and the staff could not work out how much I was owed; I had to show them!

The staff were a young team and were very friendly and sympathetic about our various complaints - they knew before being prompted that the food and the room were below par.

The manager has called me and has said that the hotel is slowly being upgraded and that the room we were given is one of the rooms that badly requires it. This does not excuse the food stains, dust and mould...

Love the borders and we will be back, but certainly not to this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has been upgraded!

This hotel is beautiful, the staff extremely friendly and very helpful. We had Breakfast and dinner during our stay and the food was great and well presented. We stayed in the cottage which we loved and it was spacious enough for four adults. Would recommend and will return. Well done and a big thank you to all the staff.

Our first visit to this hotel. Excellent service, friendly staff and good atmosphere. Our double room was clean and reasonably spacious even though we were out in the wing and not in the main hotel. Breakfast was good with a good choice of traditional or continental items.
The weather was excellent during our stay making for a most enjoyable weekend with friends.

Our fourth visit to this hotel for a reunion. Excellent service, friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere. Our double room was very spacious and clean with a comfortable bed; the breakfasts cooked to order with very little delay.

And good weather to boot!!

This is the 4th time that we have had a get together with friends. I can honestly say that all our guests were made to feel so welcome and everyone said that your staff were so helpful to them. Many are coming back during the coming months with all of them saying that they are coming back next year. We had a private room with a special menu created by your fantastic chief, your staff are a real credit to you and your hotel. Ian and his waiting staff were very attentive to all our guest wishes. Making sure that they were well catered for!

The only complain that I could say, is that your local beer had sold out prior to their visit, so they we're disappointed they could not sample this.

Well done and we will se you next year if not before!
