We were aware we were getting a small room, and that wasn't a problem. It was fairly comfortable, and the only issue was lack of space in the bathroom for standing toiletries. Any shelf space not taken already tended to be sloping, so items simply slipped into the basin. The mirror was also very loose, and when wiping steam from...

We stop here on our way out towards Girvan and it marks the start of our holiday. Wonderfully cooked, home food, done and served with pride. This time around I missed the chicken & haggis, but the freshly caught fish, superbly beer-battered was an ample substitute. My wife had soup and sandwich, which she enjoyed. Great setting near the busy...

It doesn't get better than the Ken Bridge hotel. We stayed for three nights, but our schedule proved dynamic and unlike the Ashburn House, Dave worked with us. We were deer stalking and even though we got done each night after the restaurant closed, Dave made arrangements to feed us. One night we were having a pint of ale and...

We loved this hotel, Dave and Sue are so friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Our room had a homely feel, a lovely view of the river and a great bathroom. Good choice of delicious food at breakfast and dinner. The central location is great for exploring Dumfries and Galloway.

The Ken Bridge hotel has a really lovely terrace overlooking the river. We enjoyed 2 nights at this hotel and the hosts were really friendly and helpful. Our room was rather small and the bed was not the best - but there was a good en suite. Food was generally good and the service great.

Dave the owner is a nice bloke and makes you feel relaxed and welcome. The whole hotel is very clean, the room was very well presented, crisp white bed linen and the bathroom gleamed and smelt lovely. The surroundings are beautiful, right on the river. It is a peaceful and laid back place. The food was delicious and home made,...

On our way to the Grey Mares Tail (which we ended up not seeing due to torrential rain) we needed to stop off for food. Driving through Castle Douglas there was nothing which looked enticing or what we were after - which was a nice pub with a fair choice on the lunch menu and ideally options for children so...

Heading to the Cairnryan ferry for a trip to Belfast - I usually hammer it along the A75 to arrive exhausted and stressed out if my head for the queue. Today I decided to turn over a new leaf and book an overnight at The Ken Bridge Hotel - why on earth haven't I done this before? Great welcome, super...

The meal was excellent as before, the room was clean but the shower was very disappointing no more than a dribble and the towels were only hand sized, even when I asked for bath towels I still only got hand towels. The beds were like concrete and we all ended up with back ache in the morning having had little...

The shower works perfectly well especially when the isolation switch is turned on! There were 2 sets of hand and bath towels already on a wall rack in the en-suite so there was really no need for you to come down and snap "Do you not provide towels in this hotel" at the barman. The number of towels were checked...
