Yes, it is old fashioned, the dining room somewhat tired, and the bar area a typical houff.
But see past that, and enjoy the freshly cooked food- you need to wait a wee while as it is prepared. And what helpings, fresh vegetables,excellent local meats, with individual service. Prices were very competitive, and the standard of food high.

Stopped in Castle Douglas to have lunch and look around. Parked the car in the parking lot across the street which is free to park. Looked at the menu and decided to stop in. Greeted by two very kind women one of which is the chef. All four of us had different starters and main meals and the food was fresh and simply stunning steak. I ordered off the menu but had to make adjustments due to my no fat or butter and all my food came as asked. Very good at improvising for me. Great food, service and nothing too much to ask for. If I was local I would eat here often.

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!
