We stayed for one night only and booked based on the description of riverside location. This was a good decision as it was lovely to go walking in the grounds. The hotel itself was more than worthy of its 3 stars, which I assume was partly due to lack of a swimming pool or gym. The room was a little underwhelming compared to the great overall look of the hotel exterior and the bar/lounge/restaurant areas, but this did not detract from our stay as the room was warm, the bathroom was fine and the bed was very comfy. The only negative for us was the price of the evening meal - 3 courses for £25.50 seemed a bit steep so we drove a few miles to pub in Thornhill instead, which was excellent and much cheaper. We had a drink in the hotel bar when we got back and price didn't seem too bad by "hotel standards". Staff were welcoming and friendly and the snooker room was a nice little bonus. Will definitely stay again if returning to the Dumfries area and would consider the holiday cottages as an option if taking our dog with us.
