“Faultless”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

This Hotel only goes to prove that you should eat locally and in your own region. From the minute my partner and I walked in the door we were greated with a warm welcome by both members of staff. Great range of wine when asked which to have with lunch, quick and efficient service and the food was amazing, obviously all freshly produced. Staff were very knowledgable about their job and obviously didn't hide the fact that the one thing I asked for wasn't homemade, ( sorry I always ask that question ) Wd jst like to thank you all for a superb lunch and great service and the fact that we only stay about 25 miles away and my partner wants to come for the night for the food and drink. Great job girls.

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

The hotel is clean and tidy, the staff are attentive and friendly, rooms are well appointed and contain all you will need. A limited but adequate menu was provided for our package and I had no complaints from my 21 members.
The Bar and wine prices are par for the course but the beer is a little more-ish and i couldn't help drinking more than my share.
All in all the Kings Arms offers value for money, in a friendly casual environment, i would stay again and can recommend it without reservation.

Room Tip: they are all the same standard i had room 5, twin ensuite

My husband and I stayed here while touring in the area, in mid October. One plan was to visit Threave, the following day and this hotel is within walking district of these special gardens. Arriving on a rainy evening, with no advanced booking, we were warmly welcomed, shown up to our lovely room, told how to access the parking lot and offered help with our luggage. Dinner was delicious and served in the dining room, but had we wished we could also have eaten in the bar, Next morning the owner willingly answered our questions about local interests and personally served our lovely breakfast.. We would return.

Six of us called in unannounced for lunch, they quickly arranged some tables in the bar and couldn't have been more welcoming. The food was very good even if the menu was a bit predictable. Possibly a little dated but comfortable all the same, we'll be back next time we're Ireland bound!

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.
