A tired looking hotel although looks as if it’s maybe starting to get refurbished. The entrance / reception isn’t very welcoming - however, the gentleman who came to greet us was cheery and welcoming. There are no lifts Our room was a triple room which was quite cramped and dated (quite dark and not too welcoming). The shower room was quite small, when opening the door it hit the side of the bed. and dated with cracked sink . None of us slept well, it was very hot (radiator wasn’t on) , pillows very flat (we may have been able to ask for more but we didn’t so maybe that’s our fault). The curtains in room were not hung properly so as soon as it started to get light just after 3 pm the light was coming into the room. As we had to have the window open due to the heat, we heard every loud chime from a clock from the street- thought after the 12 chimes at midnight we might be able to sleep but nope, heard, 1 chime, 2 chimes, 3 chimes etc on every hour 😢. The breakfast was really tasty and served with a smile, again the dining room wasn’t very welcoming but think maybe it is work in progress. Thankfully we were only there one night as don’t think we could have managed another night with hardly any sleep. There were no issues regardless cleanliness. We did not think this was value fir money and it was well overpriced in our opinion. I feel I am being generous with the 3 stars. The only reason I am giving it 3 stars is due to the ONE member of staff we came across, he was on reception on arrival, bar, waiter at breakfast, not sure if he was the one who actually cooked the breakfast also! He always had a smile on his face and engaged in conversation. He explained when we checked in they had a minimal meal choice at night - pie and mash due to having difficulty employing a chef but had no problems if we wished to go out and take in a take away to the room abd would give us cutlery. This would have been a 2 star rating if it had not been for this gentleman - do hope his employers appreciates what he actually does and gives him a decent wage / bonus for all the work he does. As I say he was the ONLY member of staff we came across

Tom was a great host and made us feel very welcome. He was very attentive and just when you wanted a drink he reappeared! Amazing breakfast which started off the day well. Ideal overnight stop halfway to the Highlands and best thing was they allowed dogs.

I tagged along with friends who were staying at the Kings Arms while they visited me. The bar staff were friendly and welcoming and made a fine gin and tonic. I loved meeting Kevin and Molly, the gorgeous friendly dogs in the bar. In the morning I snuck in for a cooked breakfast and it was so good. There were no menus, but it was just in the first few days after lock down had lifted. We were asked if we wanted “everything” and we got everything, delicious! Maybe they could find a new supplier for the sausages, they were a bit bland, but everything else was great. They didn’t have any decaf coffee, so I had tea, which was fine, maybe they’ve found some decaf now? It was just as things were reopening. There were cereals and fruit and croissant as well as the cooked breakfast. I hear the rooms were fine, just that the bed was a bit high for one vertically challenged guest ;-)

First time visit to the hotel , we wanted lunch and gave it a go , lovely and warm near the log burner and pleasant music . It is an old hotel so yes a little tired but the seats were fine and the tables etc clean , a few guests and other people in for lunch so not dead . Decent menu with enough choices , so we ordered two starters an two mains ( really good that every main has a small and large option , wish more places did this ) food was hot, good visually and tasty , the small option with a starter was perfect (plus drinks ) and we both had clean plates then the bill at well under £30 was good value . The barman was very cheer full and even ran after us when my wife dropped her hat , so we will definitely eat here again

Its hard to find many places in Lockerbie to get really good food, and having eaten at The Kings Arms , many times some years ago, I was hoping for a OK meal. The back bar is very dark, with old wood and small windows, no curtains on the rails. As you enter the first thing you notice is a large dirty mirror back of the bar. The menu has popular pub favourites, I had the Steak and ale pie with mashed tatties and veg', my partner and sister in law had the Haggis Tatties and Nipes, and un fortunately the turnip was cold, which was a shame. After a reheat It returned and was enjoyed. But The grubbiness and lack of attention to detail, was a little off putting. So while the food was ok, I wont be rushing back I think its a work in progress, and has potential to be a nice eatery, but it is in need of some work.
