I travel a lot with my role and spend a lot of time in big chain hotels which are great as you know what to expect, however sometimes this is always not possible, finding the Townhead was a little gem, and have stayed twice, what a lovely, friendly, clean hotel. The food is delicious. All the staff are very welcoming...

Lovely small restaurant, tastefully decorated. Exceptionally friendly attentive staff. Delicious main courses and desserts, all well presented on the plate. We were lucky enough to arrive early and not booked but judging by the waiting area booking would be advisable. Definitely worth a visit!

After living in Lochmaben for 10 years we finally visited the Townhead Hotel in Lockerbie with our family. What a lovely surprise it was. All the food was really delicious and the staff were very attentive and friendly. Also the complementary Port this evening went down very well. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

We decided to stay overnight on our way over to Fort William, only the day before. Reading reviews on Trip Advisor we booked into this really inconspicuous looking hotel. Do not be deceived this is a little gem, which we will be returning too. Staff are extremely friendly and chatty, our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. We went and...
