Visited the Solway Lodge by accident yesterday.I didn't stay at the hotel so can only comment on the short time i spent there in the restaurant but felt a review was necessary! I was travelling up to Edinburgh from Blackpool with my mother and we decided to look for something to eat, Soo glad i did! The meal was outstanding. I had the Roast duck... absolutely beautiful. Also made to feel very welcome by the staff. A very lovely girl who served us straight away. Served quality food without a long wait. The place had such a warm, friendly atmosphere. We even commented on how nice the toilets were! Although we didn't stay for long. I really hope to visit again in the future. Keep up the good work!

Just had a fantastic family sunday lunch meal for 12 of us mix of kids and adults, meals were excellant, although when asking for the dessert menu we were asked for our order almost within 2 mins of being given the menus!!!!!!, the atmosphere and staff are brilliant although the old man there could do with a humour transplant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room tip: ask for a room within the main building.

Arrived at the Solway Lodge 3 September 2012. Booked in and was shown to our rooms outside. The reception staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms very clean and accomodating. The hotel staff were fantastic. The breakfast was basic, but tasty and upon request of Beans, they was no problem in providing beans with the breakie. The food was delightful. The hospitality was spot on. Would definately stop there again.
Cheers guys!

Room tip: All rooms superb.

We stayed at the Solway Lodge in August this year to renew our vows at the Old Blacksmiths, From the day I booked to the day we left Ian was very accommodating. He rang to discuss our requirements and was so helpful. We booked 6 rooms and had a total party in the restaurant of 16 people, the food was excellent, well presented, filling and very reasonably priced, everyone had different things, but the timing was perfect when we all ate. Fiona and the team really helped us to feel special on the day, the rooms were very clean and well equipped and our only problem is that we only stayed for one night. We had a fantastic renewal of our vows which was made better by the staff at the Solway Lodge who took all of the pressure and left us to enjoy our celebrations. Very good breakfast too. When we returned home we realised that we had forgotten our wedding flowers, but once again Ian sorted and returned them to our home address. Would like to say thank you to everyone at the hotel and will definitely stay again.

Me and my new husband stayed here in August this year for a weekend and were joined by 18 of our family and friends . All the staff were fantastic and more than helpful , the actual wedding took place at Auchen Castle but we all returned to Solway Lodge for our meal which was very enjoyable and plenty of it . The staff did alot more for us than we expected and were very pleasant throughout our stay . We will definately be staying here again and would definately recommend this hotel to anybody .

Perhaps we were just unlucky.........
Stayed for one night. turned up without booking to get last available room. Room was clean, spacious enough, en-suite etc.. and not a bad price (£85 on a Friday for B&B for two). Food in bar / restaurant was adequate and reasonably priced.
However, most of the rooms seemed to be allocated to guests of a wedding. Having travelled much of the day, we were keen to get a good nights sleep prior to the drive home. At something past midnight we were woken by a drunken man swearing violently in an adjoining room, and having to be calmed down. This lasted for a good 30 minutes before abating. OK I thought, he'll take an age to sleep it off. How wrong I was. He was up at 6am throwing up the contents of the previous evenings intake. We heard every last delightful chunder disappear into the loo.

If you are looking to stay here, try and be lucky. The room sound-proofing is non-existant

thaks for your comments and we will strive to keep noise down to a minimum in future but this is always hard when wedding parties come to enjoy themselves and sometimes unfortunately have too good a time!
