Creebridge House Hotel
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Newton Stewart
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 August 2014

We were booked in for 2 days but only stayed the one. The room we were given was tired and nearly exhausted. Thr first thing you saw was a "repair" to the wall below the bay window, Unfortunately who ever did the repair was not skilled in DIY or decorating. The bathroom had a hole in the wall (size of a fist?). The flooring in the bathroom was well worn and did not look the cleanest.
The positives were the staff and the food which was very good.
For the standard of hotel it was overpriced and could be doing with some refurbishment.

Room Tip: Looks deceive. Go to different hotel

We recently stayed for 2 nights at this hotel and were made to feel welcome by the very pleasant and helpful staff. Our room was very comfortable with an attractive view over the gardens. On arrival we had lunch in the cosy bar area which was also where we waited for our dinner table. The dinner menu was extensive and the food very tasty and well presented. The only downside was the fact that the fire alarm went off 3 times in 24 hours. Also the thermostat in the shower didn't work which made it impossible to control the water temperature.

A pretty tired venue in need of modernising with spacious but shabby rooms unfortunately. I was tempted to give 2 stars but think that might have been unfair and maybe a reaction to the unusually high rating here on tripadvisor.
I would recommend looking elsewhere.
Oh and the fire alarm went off 3 times. One being a rather early and abrupt wake up call.

We visited Creebridge House Hotel for dinner on our way through Newton Stewart. Top quality food, beautifully cooked and presented, served by friendly and courteous staff. Best restaurant that we visited in the area. Highly recommend it.

We did not stay in the hotel but at a lodge nearby; however we visited the bar and restaurant on a regular basis during our stay in Newton Stewart. We loved the friendly and relaxed atmosphere and found the staff to be very welcoming, knowledgeable, warm and friendly. The food was delicious; although helpings were quite large! A good selection of wine; including my favourite! Don't know what the rooms are like but would definitely recommend the restaurant and would certainly return if we are ever in the area again.

We have been frequenting this hotel for a number of years but circumstances have dictated that we haven't been for the last four years. Our arrival was tremendous treated like family even after all this time.I have never been to a hotel that retains its staff like this one and it shows.The service is exceptional and the food out of this world. Well done everyone looking forward to seeing you all again in August.

Nice room, country house type place, quiet even though near town centre.

Dinner - Once started good service and food. Had prawns/garlic mushrooms, then both 'Stewartry' lamb, asparagus in bacon + other veg. Strong herbal gravy. Then banoffee pie

Breakfast included haggis - ok, but very filling

There is a shortage of restaurants in Newton Stewart, so we ate at the hotel again., My wife had amb again and I having steak pie. We shared sticky toffee pudding.

Room Tip: Some rooms have good view of garden
