We have stayed at this hotel before and never fails on food and service .Calum and his staff are super friendly and welcoming . We had a very enjoyable evening meal and drinks in the bar later. The room was spotless with plenty of towels. Hospitality tray has tea/coffee , water and biscuits .The breakfast was superb and service very quick . Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a friendly welcome and good food .

Stayed for 5 days which we both enjoyed BUT the Bruce needs to be brought up to date,Rooms big and cleaned every day But needs new beds and new pillows wallpaper in our room was coming off the walls and the ceiling plus a lot off dirty marks which only needed a wipe again enjoyed our time and would go back if it was all updated Breakfast was ok but very greasy

Room Tip: Try to get rooms at the back of hotel

Stayed here for a family wedding @ Black Clauchrie. Staff were so helpful, rooms comfortable & would return if we can. The staff even went the extra mile for us when transport for wedding was mixed up and manager offered to drive some of us there himself- can't say better service than that!!

Room Tip: Our families had a variety of rooms on different floors - all we're of decent standard!

The hotel itself was fine & the breakfast was excellent but the overnight experience was very noisy! Unfortunately our room was overlooking the street & being a Friday night the bar a few doors away remains open until the early hours. Around 1am there was a tremendous disturbance with shouting & screaming echoing outside the hotel which doesn't really go down too well after a long day's driving! This of course was no fault of our hotel but maybe a room at the back would be a better option .......especially on a Friday night!

Room Tip: Please ask for a room away from the street

My wife and I were in Newton Stewart for a one-night stay, attending a wedding nearby. Arrived at the bruce Hotel and were given exemplary service from the start. Rooms are spacious, clean and all facilities available for us to get ready for the evening. Staff were very helpful throughout and the a great breakfast the following morning rounded off a very pleasant stay. Good value.

This was the second time I have stayed at this hotel & have no hesitation in recommending it to others. The rooms are clean & comfortable, warm in winter (January) & with a total of 5 opening windows in my room (16) it was cool enough to sleep comfortably in a heatwave on my last stay.
My room had free wi-fi, tea, coffee & biscuits provided, TV & radio, hair-dryer & plenty of towels & toiletries.
The only criticism of the Bruce is the sound proofing, the walls between the rooms & corridor are basic stud walls with I suspect very little sound proofing & the rooms on the first floor suffer from sound penetration from the bar area, it didn't bother me but if you think it could be a problem then ask for a second floor room.
Breakfast is tea/coffee with juice, cereal,fruit, prunes! followed by a full Scottish with as much toast as you can manage.
Overall it is a good quality hotel with pleasant & polite staff. Location wise it's 1 min from the A75 & a 2 min walk into town, just remember it's 3 star so don't expect total luxury, what you will get is clean & comfortable with a good atmosphere.

Excellent Hotel
Very reasonable pricing; great staff; good, if basic, food; comfortable, clean and quiet rooms.
All round I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for a second.
Only criticism they need to improve their coffee I would recommend investing in some French press coffee pots

Room Tip: 20 & 21 have good views
