On arrival at hotel do not be alarmed by the seemingly very narrow entrance to the rear car park - a careful, slow approach gets your car through safely. Rooms are on first and second floors. No lift. We had room at back with a view to the hills (once you had averted your eyes from the roof top of Jewsons and other bits of industrial looking buildings). Quiet. Rooms themselves are very tired and the mattress on the bed was the worst I have slept in for a long time - very hard due to lack of springs rather than deIiberate orthopaedic style. Not that we spend time watching TV in hotel rooms, but the tiny tiny size of the TV was quite funny. Take your binoculars if you want to view a film!! The tea tray is quite well stocked and a bottle of water provided. Pillows and duvet are very thin and tired. The bathroom was okay, but the flimsy shower curtain meant there was a fight with it when using the shower as it kept sticking to you. The bath was a disgrace - the inside of it was badly scratched and marked. Breakfast was okay. Bar is open to non residents which was not very nice when a large group of young men came in and proceeded to talk loudly using strong swear words, which were met with a vain attempt by the barman to ask them to keep it down as there were guests in the bar - they should have been asked to leave or maybe the manager needs to decide if the hotel accommodation and guests is a priority or whether it is a facility for drinking/events. Hotel is located in Newton Stewart which is a small town. There is very very limited scope for eating out. The positive side is that it is very well located for some excellent hiking and the sights of the Galloway Forest and coastline.
