This little hotel right on the banks of the River Nith is in a bit of a 70's timewarp. It's a pity, but the bedrooms could do with a minor make-over (too much darkbrown laminate chipboard furniture, with bed covers to match! And too much exposed un-ducted pipework and wiring...) And the shower cubicles could do with a complete strip... More

Our evening meal was very good, suggest you book in advance at weekends as it is very popular with locals. I had a haggis starter, followed by surf-n-turf... More

We've gone to the restaurant last night and tonight for our evening meals. The food is absolutely amazing! Delicious food, hearty servings and the staff are friendly, helpful and courteous. Great place for the whole family to eat.

Food was of very good quality, plentiful and well priced. Nice relaxed atmosphere and great staff. Decor in the bar area is a little dated, there is however a more formal dining area within the hotel. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place for a meal.

The Nith's main business is a large and popular restaurant overlooking the Nith estuary, 5 miles south of Dumfries, and they have 8 rooms, all overlooking the estuary and Criffel. The atmosphere is rather old fashioned - nothing fancy or hip about it - and the rooms are distinctly 1980s in feel and rather basically furnished, but the beds are... More

We luckily came across the Nith Hotel as we travelled up from the Lake District. With no prior booking we were warmly welcomed and allocated a room with a beautiful view overlooking the estuary. The double bedroom and en-suite bathroom exceptionally clean and spacious. The evening meal and breakfast were exemplarily. Compliments to the chef. Definitely recommend a visit ...... More
