We have been going here for the last 8 years. The staff were always friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble, but since Paula has taken over the food and the service and value for money has gone up to another level. Thanks for a hugely enjoyable stay, see you next year! It was even sunny!

Living locally to this hotel and knowing there are new owners now, I had my doubts, but I have to say I had a great surprise because the food was so much better than before, the service was great, the young guy behind the bar was excellent. Plenty of different drinks, but getting Thatcher's cider on draught was the perfect...

Our second trip to this hotel, perfectly located for the wedding we were going to. Small local hotels tend to fall into one of three categories - expensive boutiques, charming personal places and total nightmares. The Galloway Arms is the middle sort; you'll get a warm welcome, a lovely cooked breakfast and a comfortable room to sleep in. I look...

I can't say enough about how amazing the staff and service was here! My very crazy and wonderful friends arranged a Christmas Hen Do in April! After speaking to the owners we arrived to find the private dinning area decorated from head to toe in Christmas decorations with Christmas music playing. We had a menu which had been personalised printed...

As my daughter is mad about Christmas ,for her hen weekend came round they planned a Christmas theme. When they said what they were doing the owner sent her husband into the attic to bring down their decorations. They even put on a Christmas menu complete with mince pies. Many thanks we had a wonderful evening and a delicious meal....

Went to the Galloway Arms as part of a group of 11 last night. We all had different meals and every one of us thought it was delicious. The staff couldn't have been anymore helpful. The Galloway Arms is in a great location as it sits on the A75, so is easy to get to, although far enough back to...
