I...

Stayed here at the Star for the 7th time, rooms are immaculate, food is good especially the breakfasts. The bar is only small but very friendly. A great place to stay if you are playing golf or gazing at the wonderful dark sky.

What a find! Reluctant to share with TripAdvisor in case it is overbooked next time we want to visit. Two active octogenarians were made very comfortable in the room fitted out for reduced mobility. Very short walk to the hotel lounge/restaurant for delicious breakfast cooked to order, we could pre-order the evening meal. Nothing fancy just good wholesome food genuine...

First visit for me, it was a spur of the moment decision after a visit to Kirkcudbright. Excellent fish and chips, and a decent pint of John Smith's. Charming and friendly staff. Good menu, range of choices, fair prices. Will be back. Thankyou :)

This is a great place to stay, the village of Twynholm is quiet and charming. The rooms are modern and comfortable. We ate at the hotel, the food was well cooked and plentiful. The locals choose to eat here which is always a good recommendation!

Fabulous well cooked delicious food. Four of us turned up without booking, not a problem, the lady was very welcoming, found us a table and was just fantastically attentive.
