Reviewed 18 October 2013

Just returned from a 2 night break here. Staff were very friendly & helpful and the new owners ( Jan 2013) are working very hard to make a success of their new business. The hotel is having a gradual makeover and both rooms we stayed in were comfortable & clean. The room on second night was AMAZING. The hotel is dog friendly and didn't charge a supplement for our two.

We ate dinner on both evenings. Good was delicious and portions plentiful, with bar prices and the roaring log fire welcoming.

Castle Douglas is a delightful town with many independently owned shops. The coast is a short drive away.

Stayed at Kings Arms for a long weekend David and his staff were very friendly and welcoming. David arranged for me to play rounds at Southernes, Powfoot and D&G everything went very smoothly. I would highly recommend the Kings Arms to anyone looking fior a friendly helpful hotel for their stay in SW Scotland

We stayed overnight in this former coach house hotel in the lovely Castle Douglas. Our room was nice, it was spick and span and had a small balcony looking over the courtyard. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. The bar was cosy and had a nice friendly atmosphere. The dinner and the breakfast were excellent. Locally sourced ingredients made for excellent fayre and the staff could not have been nicer, friendlier or more helpful. It was excellent value for money and we would not hesitate to go again or to recommend it to friends for a stay over in this gorgeous little town..

Room Tip: We liked the room with the balcony

After looking at reviews on Trip advisor we decided to stop for lunch here on our way home with friends from holiday in Ayrshire. Staff very friendly particularly our waitress who was very helpful. Warm friendly atmosphere. We all enjoyed our food which was excellent and if we are ever in the area again, we would not hesitate to visit! Highly recommended.

We were staying the night at Douglas House a little further down the road but were recommended to the Kings Arms for our evening meal. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the pub was cosy, and the food and service were absolutely excellent (the sticky toffee pudding was to die for!) We will definitely visit again next time we are in the area - lovely :)
