This hotel was everything we needed when we recently toured Dumfries and Galloway. Warm, clean-certainly no evidence of the cobwebs mentioned in a previous review-and decent food. Certainly not pretentious, just good value for money. We had 3 nights dinner bed and breakfast for under £200.
Staff were all friendly, always had a civil word for everyone, and helpful with any queries or problems.
The room was dated, but clean and comfortable and very warm-there was a thermostatically controlled radiator-so no chance of burning oneself as mentioned in another review. The bathroom again was very clean, with a power shower.
The hotel is gradually undergoing renovations, but we were not disturbed by any of this. The bar is comfortable, furnished mostly with sofas, and has an open fire, although this was not lit while we were visiting.
The hotel is well situated in the main street of the town, handy for all amenities.
Secure parking is available off-street.
On booking it may be advisable to ask for a room away from the main street as it is quite busy-we had a room at the back of the hotel, and were not disturbed by any traffic noise at all.
All-in-all, a good budget choice hotel
