“Food glorious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

We stopped in here for lunch while visiting Castle Douglas, as it was a Sunday it was one of the few places open and we were very glad it was. We couldn't believe the huge size of the meals or the very low prices. We loved the food and friendly staff so much that we detoured back the next day on our way home for dinner. Can't rate this little place enough, will be recommending to any and all.

Room Tip: Eat here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stayed here as part of a group on a bird watching holiday.

In many ways an old fashioned hotel but our room was comfortable, warm and very spacious.

Bar is not the poshest but full of locals and friendly welcome and chat. Those that like a hand pulled pint will, however, be disappointed.

As to food, the breakfasts can only be described as amazing. After probably the best porridge in the world, a delicious selection of hot food was available.

Evening meals can best be described as good pub fare and portions are very generous. Venison casserole was amazing and both steaks and steak pie are highly recommended.

Best of all the staff could not have been more friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

Spent two weeks here, must have put on a stone. Great choice of menu and excellent service. Was made feel very welcome by all the staff. Rooms clean, bright and warm and always a friendly atmosphere in the bar and restaurant. Never had a better New Yorker outside of New York. A home away from home.

A group of 9 of us stopped off in Castle Douglas for some food on the way back to our weekend bolt hole in Galloway. We liked the look of the menu and ventured in and how glad we were that we did. The service was excellent, with a good selection on the menu at a reasonable price and superb service. We would definitely recommend this hotel for their food!

We stayed here for 1 night, if the weather had been better would have stayed longer. Managed to get a room a little pricey but couldn't believe the friendliness of all the staff. Had a few drinks in the bar and also an evening meal. Too much food, needed a doggy bag. Bar prices were good. You can order breakfast as early as you want. Again too much food. Room was large and clean. En-suite had a bath with shower over. All in all good value.

Room Tip: Share an evening meal.
