Stayed one night on the way to Cairnryan Ferry.
Most impressed by friendly and helpfully staff from arrival through to departure.
Had evening meal and full Scottish breakfast in the hotel, both good quality and good value.
Only paid £50.00 each for two double rooms B&B.
Rooms are old fashioned but bed was comfy and everything worked fine, very clean too.
Tea, coffee, biscuits and wifi F.O.C.
Would stay again for sure.

I just returned yesterday from a weekend stay and I have to say that the service that I received was second to none! We paid £30 each per night for a room with 2 single beds which included full english breakfast. There we 4 males staying in 2 rooms as it was our annual lads get together. Great value for the price and the english breakfast can be adjusted according to your tastes and the plate is heaped full. You can also help yourself to a choice of cereals and breakfast juice, with coffee, tea and toast served to your table. This meal is likely to keep you going until your evening meal (we have big appetites!) which has ideal for us as we did a spot of mountain biking during the day on Saturday which is 5-10 minutes drive away which is ideal.
Special thank you has to go to David for opening and keeping the bar open for us on Saturday night (could have gone on 'til breakfast if we wanted it!!). The meals in the holiday are also great value and again no scrimping on the portions. 3 of us had steaks and one had fish & chips and we were all very impressed. All the staff are so friendly & helpful and to be honest I kept saying this to the other guys I was with, as I wasn't used to this service elsewhere!
The rooms themselves were adequate and clean enough and the cleaners came in while we had breakfast which suited us fine.
Overall, I cannot recommend this Hotel enough as it is tremendous value for money, service is brilliant and meals are great.
Thanks for making our stay so much more pleasurable.
All the best

This place is good value for money although nothing special, the room was spacious. We enjoyed a good pint and a meal at the pub in the evening as it seemed the nicest place in Newton Stewart to eat. The room suffered from some street noise as it was a Saturday night.

Room Tip: Go for a room off the main street

I stayed with my 12 year old son in a twin room. Good value for money over 2 nights. Huge full Scottish breakfast helped us on our Mountain-biking runs. Very close to Glentrool and Kirroughtree centres.

Room Tip: Front-facing rooms might be noisy with the window open and at weekends

Clean, comfortable room with clean towels daily - a refreshing change. Good food which was well presented. The staff were friendly and helpful but could have been better trained in customer service and maybe more appropriately dressed.

Stayed her for 1 night on business, everything appeared to be very clean. My room (room 21) was massive. I ordered in room service, nothing fancy - macaroni cheese which was really tasty and the chap who brought it to my room was very pleasant and happy to chat for a minute or 2. Again breakfast in the morning was served with a smile. Would stay here again...

Room Tip: Loads of room, in room 21 - very spacioius
