With all the excitement of travel to think that you would be staying in the centre of a real castle was awesome. But Castle Douglas is the city's name (silly us). From the outside the place looked pretty good, typical of what one might expect to find. The rooms were a bit shabby, especially with carpet throughout, including the bathroom, which could have used a good cleaning.
We had dinner there one night and it was very good. Without a lot of clientelle, the place appeared to be struggling, but in spite of that the food was top rate. We only had wifi access in the bar area, unfortunately, but were able to try some of the local spirits.
The included breakfasts were filling and complete, including the haggis.
Here is hoping that the economy will turn and they can make a go of it. The golf history of the place should be a drawing card.
