Crown Hotel
Reviewed 6 August 2013

This was my second year staying at the Crown Hotel in Castle Douglas (Scotland) and I must admit Colin, Alexa and Sarah made me feel very welcome again, nothing was to much trouble for them.

The food and service was both excellent. I came back weighing more than when I went.

The locals made me very welcome, some even remembered me from last year. This made the holiday for me as I was made to feel "one of the crowd".

Good weather, good accommodation, good food, good company, good surroundings - what more could you ask for in a holiday. Everything you needed was there.

I will most certainly be back again next year and look forward to seeing you all then.

Keep up the good work and don't think about leaving.

Francis.

An average and pleasant hotel with very friendly owners, just a real shame about the saturday evening bar scene. This is definitely not a place to stay with a young family or for older/retired people. The place is packed with booze fuelled locals who are hostile to visitors and the atmosphere volatile. That's why the police are waiting in the streets adjacent to the hotel - we asked them!

We arrived on the Saturday afternoon as soon as we arrived the staff couldn't do enough for us which was a good start. Once we were settled in we went for a walk then came back for an evening meal the choice was very good and varied not only was that meal very tasty the portion was a real portion mmmm. When we went for breakfast the portion was also very large and tasty I never ate again until night time, once again the meal and service from all the staff was superb and we will definitely be going back. Nearly forgot our room was very big and the bed was very comfy.all in all we had a very good stay the whole weekend was very relaxed.

Stayed at the Crown Hotel with a group of colleagues from work while on a motorbike holiday in Scotland. The staff at the Hotel were great and couldn't have done any more to accomodate us. Food was absolutely fantastic with immense portions and fantastically priced. The rooms were clean and we enjoyed a very comfortable stay. Some hotels would feel intimidated by having 8 bikers descend on them but the Crown took it all in their stride and it would have been difficult to feel more welcome. Definately going to use the Crown on our biking trips again in the future. Many thanks

Visited the Crown Inn during a journey from Melrose to Stranraer as a convenient stop for a lunch break. It had a good selection of drinks including draught, bottled And soft drinks. There was a bar menu which was comprehensive and interesting. I had a haggis and cheese toastie and my companions had sandwiches, all were very well presented with the usual trimmings pleasantly served. The dining room menu had a good selection and all were reasonably priced.
The staff were very welcoming, and the premises clean and cared for. All in all a very good traditional community small country town inn

Our first stay at the Crown Hotel and we will definitely be back. All the staff went out of their way to look after us and made us and our little dog Hamish so welcome. Our room was huge and beautifully decorated and spotless. The food was fantastic and huge portions for both breakfast and dinner. We felt so sad to leave. A big thank you to Colin Alexa , Sarah and everyone else for making our stay so good. Can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

Room Tip: Room 7 was huge and a lovely room

Called in on a day out and was a bit wary to begin with but the meal was fab I had a huge piece of salmon and husband had battered fish which was lovely only let down was kids meal which looked like a frozen store bought pizza. Some areas of restaurant could do with a touch up chipped painted etc but the meal more than made up for it. Will return next time we r in the area
