    Excellent hotel, ideally situated for the train station and it takes only 10 minutes to walk into the middle of Dumfries. The staff are lovely and so helpful and the food is top notch. We will definitely be recommending this hotel.

    I was astounded to be told when I arrived that no dogs were allowed when I specifically booked through yourselves because you told me "pets welcome" The owner of the hotel told me they stopped pets weeks earlier and I had to argue my case that it was not my problem or indeed fault. She eventually gave us a small room but told me there would be an additional £10 cleaning charge for the dog. Once again your booking site declared "at no additiional charge" Not a great hotel and owner not very welcoming. Certainly wont be back nor recommend to anyone else.

    Great location and very comfortable room. The woman on reception when we checked in on Friday was exceptionally helpful, with tips for seeing both Dumfries and the local countryside. Dinner and breakfast were good.

    Superb

    The way reception staff treated me, professional but friendly and helpful. I was in a single room which i found had everything i needed, good to see a full size bath! The girl who served my breakfast in the courtyard bistro was very nice, made it enjoyable.

    Being a station hotel is a double edged sword, convenient but as my room overlooked the line, the late train woke me. This is outwith the hotel control and is not something i am holding against it, other people may have slept through the drunken behaviour of the passengers leaving the train.

    Room was good, staff were very friendly. Arrived at hotel at 10.30am to ask if we could leave our bags prior to checking in at 2.00pm. Our room was ready and they checked us in there and then. Situated very close to town centre but still in a peaceful and pleasant area of Dumfries.
