Popped in for a late lunch a few weeks back and although the place has been done up a fair bit the service was not great. Menu is OK, but limited late afternoon and I had soup as it was either that or nachos. Soup was lukewarm, a pet hate for me when it comes to soup as it should...

Service outstanding, about two weeks ago I happened to say to co-owner of the hotel that I would love to try sweet potato chips sometime. I had no memory of this discussion when I ordered and asked for potato chips with my meal. When our food arrived there were two portions of chips, regular and sweet potato, she had remember...

My wife and I were staying in Newton Stewart and were recommended this place to eat by the guest house owner where we were staying. To be fair, the place doesn't look much from the outside and if, like us, you approach down the steps from the back, it looks awful. However, undeterred, we went inside and, whilst it appeared...

A minging room with dirty, tatty decor and en suite, (smothering everything with febreeze does not make it clean or turn threadbare bedding into new bedding). You almost end up admiring their brass neck for charging top dollar. Don't waste your money. In fact, I'd probably give south west Scotland a wide birth altogether; you won't be dissapointed.

If you want to go to bed warm, comfortable and with a smile on your face this is the hotel for you. It is a hotel – the oldest in Newton Stewart – full of character and characters. And, of course, Newton Stewart is the ideal base for touring the ins and outs of South West Scotland. Our room was...

Only visited this hotel for a meal and drink. The meal was cooked to my satisfaction and presented in a comfortable surrounding. Service was about the time I would expect to wait for fresh cooked food. Well worth a visit and I will be back for another sirloin steak - it was "lush".

We stopped by the Galloway Arms Hotel for some dinner with friends who we met there. Things did not start out too well when we arrived at 8:40pm (food is served until 9pm) when we were "greeted" by one of the staff who basically wanted to get rid of us. She scowled at us and we were told that there...

Our family had a meal in this hotel and the food was fabulous. Very reasonably priced, service was excellent and very quick. Would definitely recommend this hotel for food!! The range of dishes in their menu was very extensive and something on there for everyone. The waitress was happy to help and all requests were accommodated.

Staff were friendly and helpful and food was good. Rooms were clean but that's the only good thing you can say about them. They have not had any money spent on them for about 25years. Decor and furniture were very shabby and the en-suite looked older that the rest of the room. Plenty of better places to stay locally for...
