“Comfortable Hotel, Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

We stayed 1 night in September, paying a bargain £40 room only. The room was comfortable and furnished to a reasonable standard. The shower was the best of the 5 hotels we'd stopped in on our whistle stop tour of Scotland. It had good pressure, consistent temperature, went to a good height (I'm 6'3'' and get feed-up crouching in showers) and was a large cubicle. The big downside was the view, or rather lack of it, as room 6 looks directly onto a roof, followed by a wall. It didn't really matter to us as we arrived after dark and left after breakfast, but as we seemed to be the only guests you'd think other rooms would be used first. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We ate our evening meal and breakfast at the hotel and both were very tasty (our first haggis as part of a cooked breakfast) and good value.

I very much enjoyed my 2 night stay. I was made to feel very welcome, the staff all young, and very helpful, they couldn't do enough for me. I have a false leg, and they carried my bags , even out to the car on leaving. I will definitely go again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay at The Market Inn - were made to feel extremely welcome. We opted to stay in for our evening meal and were thoroughly impressed with the standard of food and the service. Again we chose to have breakfast and again were very impressed - more do to find out that the lady who did the breakfast had also cooked our evening meal! ONLY downside was the local disco - extremely loud - but that is only on a Saturday night and although it may ruin a visit for some didn't take away from our visit at all - will most definitely be back!

My husband and I recently enjoyed 3 nights at this hotel. We received a warm welcome from staff and locals. Shopping in the town is a lovely experience. Shop assistants really seem pleased to provide a warm friendly service. Local bakers highly recommended.

Where to begin? My girlfriend and I decided to travel up to Castle Douglas for a long relaxing weekend away from the day to day hustle and bustle of Oxford. After a lengthy journey on the Friday evening we finally arrived at the 'Market Inn' our first impressions were that the hotel was well presented and quirky on its exterior. Parking was readily available outside the hotel which was of great convenience due to the hefty size of my other halves luggage! We entered the hotel and was immediately greeted by a warm welcoming smile behind the reception desk, check-in was quick and simple and we were shown to our room within minutes of arrival. The interior of the hotel lobby was well lit and very well presented, we could'nt help but feel we had paid under the odds for our weekend stay. Once showed to our rooms it was apparent this was a very well maintained hotel that was clearly loved by its owner, the room and en-suite bathroom was immaculate and very hygienic, the beds were comfy and the sheets were fresh and clean which ensured a great nights sleep. In the morning we made our way downstairs to order our breakfast which to our delight was one of the best breakfasts we had ever eaten not to mention the generous portion size. After our day out we returned back to the hotel where we were immediately recognised and felt as if we were regulars, which was a very warming feeling, not only the owner and the receptionist but the whole staff throughout the hotel were extremely professional and were willing to bend over backwards for any needs we had. Overall i can't emphasise how much we enjoyed our stay at the Market Inn, and would recommend it to anybody and everybody, the Market Inn definitely ranks in the top hotels we have ever stayed in.
