Although this hotel is being refurbished (to a high standard) at the moment, it did not detract from the overall experience. It is set in beautiful grounds and had a lovely family atmosphere. We booked using a voucher and were totally surprised. On arrival we, (64,62) were shown to the 'honeymoon' suite with a nice bottle of white wine :-) much appreciated! Four poster bed was so comfy and room had lovely views. Complimentary toiletries were much nicer than we usually find and tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits were there in abundance. ( pleased to see use of fair trade)
Will finish by saying that we had two rooms, the honeymoon suite and no. 2 for Grandma 86, which had been tastefully refurbished but did not see any of the other rooms. Room 2 had a single and a double bed, fantastic en suite with power shower. I'm sure, given time and understanding guests, the present owners will make the rest of this hotel wonderful too. It is a great place for bird watchers, has beautiful walks and is very close to Castle Douglas quaint shopping centre. Thanks for peaceful 2 days !
