We booked this hotel as a last minute short break get away. What a lovely place! The owners, Terry and Lynne, were friendly and very accommodating. Room was spotless and everything was covid safe. Great hot shower. Breakfasts were delicious and very filling. Plenty of free parking and good location as within walking distance to town centre. We'll definitely be returning. Thank you!

Must thank Terry and Lynne for taking us in despite me making a mistake on booking. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The beds were very comfortable, rooms spotless and quiet. The breakfast top class. Will certainly be revisiting when next in Dumfries

Fabulous hotel and perfectly placed for exploring Dumfries and Galloway. Terry and Lynn are lovely, friendly hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. All areas are exceptionally clean and well presented. Our bedroom and bathroom was spacious with a large king-sized bed. Breakfast was excellent and set us up for a day of exploring. Lots of parking and the outdoor area is lovely. We certainly recommend The Hill Hotel and hope to have a return visit soon.

We stayed here for a weekend to catch up with friends some months ago. Terry and Lynn are stunning hosts - attentive, friendly and welcoming, with a knowledge of Dumfries and surrounding areas that you only get from having grown up there. The hotel itself is extremely clean, and well placed - being a short walk from the train station and the town centre. Breakfast was stunning and the lounge bar comfortable and welcoming. Will definitely be back to stay again.
