“Friendly welcome north of the border”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2011

Stayed one night and was impressed by the friendliness and welcome we received. Room was ok, clean and roomy although bathroom door would not close. Also low doorway to room so anyone over 5'10" duck! Great full scottish breakfast and attentive staff.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2011

We first visited the 'King's Arms' on holiday 7 years ago and have since moved to the area, where we are regular customers. We also own holiday cottage in the town and always recommend the King's to our guests; our guestbook is full of praise for the friendly welcome and good quality, reasonably priced food. Very definitely the best place in town for a pleasant evening out.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2010

Extremely friendly & welcoming staff, clean room & bedlinen, spotless bathroom & shower.
Excellent evening meal, very reasonably priced. Good, hearty breakfast.
Have friend in retirement home nearby, hence frequent visits. Once tried Royal Hotel in Kirkcudbright for a change—disaster!—so back with pleasure to Dalbeattie & the King's Arms.
As always, found local patrons very friendly & wiliing to chat.

Visitors urged to see Dalbeattie Museum near hotel: another very warm welcome from super-enthusiastic & knowledgeable curator/founder!

My friend and I stayed at the Kings Arms Hotel for a couple of nights. We were visiting the area to watch football at Queen Of The South and my friend was there to visit his family roots. The hotel is bang in the small town of Dalbeattie. The rooms are very clean, freshly decorated and are more than adequate for all your needs. The breakfast was really good with an excellent choice. The hotel reception was friendly and overall the Hotel was excellent value for money. The surrounding countryside is lovely and picturesque and well worth a visit.

Stayed at the Kings Arms in July while on a cycle tour. Lovely comfortable beds and nice bathroom. Meals in the hotel were reasonably priced and delicious. Excellent breakfast with a good choice.

  • Liked — Excellent beds and atmosphere.
  • Disliked — Lots of stairs making it unsuitable for disabled or unfit
