Easy to find with ample free parking opposite the station.Check in friendly and efficient. Executive room with four poster was well appointed and comfortable. Bathroom whilst having a spa bath, which was pleasant, was in need of modernisation. It was our choice but on reflection the very modern alternative would have been better for us and better value for money.... More

Genuinely nice old hotel that has pleasant updated rooms and serves a good steak and a great breakfast. Staff are all really nice and very helpful. Parking is free to guests and it's just a short walk to the town centre if you want a stroll. Surprisingly quiet at night so don't be put off by the fact it is... More

Rooms are large and have undergone a makeover with flatscreen tv, iron/ironing board, tea/coffee making facilities.

This is a large traditional hotel with convenient parking. Room 14 was spacious with brown carpet, 8 pieces of matching dark brown furniture, nice winged chair, fresh pleasant curtains and cushions.Unfortunately the overall feel of the room though was not very uplifting despite, I guess, being recently updated. The bathroom was adequate with an excellent shower but needed attention to... More

I've had friends and family stay here before and not really rave about it. I found it to be a decent price, the room was clean and the bed very comfortable. It is a bit old fashioned and bathrooms could do with an update but they workded and were functional. On top of this parking right outside the front door,... More

We were visiting the area so choose this hotel for its convenience. Plenty of car parking places outside the hotel. The lady on reception was lovely and very helpful.

Very conveniently situated across from Dumfries train station. Ample parking right outside. The full Scottish breakfast was excellent. All the staff were friendly but the reception staff in particular were extremely helpful. Would have no hesitation in staying there again.
