We were looking for somewhere for a couple of nights as a quick getaway after our wedding, with our 'real' honeymoon happening next year. The hotel is a Georgian building with a more contemporary extension at the back where the rooms are. It has lovely gardens and loads of well-lit parking. There is unfinished building works at the side, which our room looked out over; to be honest we were out during the day, so the view didn't really bother us! The room itself was lovely - heavy wooden furniture; nice decor. The bathroom was very nice - his & hers sinks, bath, shower, all tiled. The staff and owners were friendly. We had a bar meal one night and it was decent bar food. Another night the staff were happy to call a taxi so we could venture out and equally happy to put a bottle of fizz we'd been given on ice for us in our room. Breakfast was fine - self-service coffee, cereals, fruit & yoghurt; table service toast & cooked. The one thing that I was surprised about was that, knowing we were going into Dumfries, no-one mentioned the disc parking scheme. You have to have a disc to park. The car parks have signs saying they're available from 'shops and cafes'. They're not. We were actually panicking in the end as we were so worried we were going to get a ticket while we walked about trying to find a shop/cafe owner who didn't look at us blankly! In the end someone told us council cuts mean the council no longer distribute them to local businesses and they're only available from the police station. Total fluke we were in the car park near the police station! As a hotel owner, I might have a stock available in reception for visitors.

Initial impression on arrival lovely building. Sadly an large ambitious extension in the first stages, apparently started sometime ago, is evident on the side of the building. That apart we received a very friendly reception and were shown to our rooms which were exceptional. Very large, with modern good quality furniture and decoration. Bathroom was of equal quality, large and well constructed with quality materials and clean. Beer at the bar was at a reasonable price. Had meal in which was very good and reasonably priced. Overall I enjoyed my stay and found it valve for money. The unfinished building work attached to the hotel could be a downside to some people. I would happily stay here again.

Room Tip: My room at the back was quiet 109
