    This is a fine hotel set in countryside near Dumfries. Good food and friendly service. View to the river was exceptional. Salmon and trout fishing available for a reasonable price. Nice walks around the grounds with a map for guidance.

    Yes it is worth paying the upgrade. Last time we did it, The room was quite roomy especially the bath room. If you ask for a room at the front overlooking the river you will be well pleased.
