It was quite a night staying at this hotel. It seems the bar/ lounge is pretty popular with the locals. It was packed, loud and a bit mental at times.
The rooms are very basic but comfortable.
The staff were friendly and helpful.

Called in here with some friends on a visit to Castle Douglas. Its a fascinating place with a lot of Victorian features to look at. We ordered food and drinks from very friendly staff. The food came out in good time and was really good quality and plenty of it. The real striking thing though was the staff. Nothing was to much trouble for them, they were friendly, helpful and enjoyed a joke and laugh and plenty of banter. All that thrown in with really good value for money food, 5 of us with drinks and two course each all for a total of £50. Better value and quality than a Muck Donalds. What more could you want from a bar restaurant.
This place comes highly recommended

Didn't eat here, but if you fancy just a drink and friendly bar staff, thanks lovely... great cheap juke box, and beer. Basic furniture, and language can be a bit blue. But we enjoyed it. Go in the pub door, which is furthest right as you face the hotel.

Visited the Imperial Hotel for lunch on a visit to Castle Douglas at the weekend. the food was Edible and that was about it, the person serving the lunches was very abrupt and not very friendly, service was slow, asked her a question about the menu still awaiting an answer, asked for vinegar and don't know what was in the bottle, it was swimming with bits of something and looked revolting, she didn't even apologise. We used to go there regularly, and wondered why there was so few people in when it used to be filled, especially on a holiday weekend.
Sorry I was not impressed and won't be back ever unless the they have a change of owners.

Food was excellent, service with a smile! Great "craic" with the Irish man at the bar! Fairly priced good honest pub grub.
