A last-minute booking when heading north to Scotland, with a "deadline" 10.00pm arrival time. Held up on M6, rang hotel to pre-warn them we would be late, only to be told "no problem!!" On arrival at 10.20pm, we were greeted warmly by owner Stephen - and his staff and customers - and immediately felt at home. Nothing was too much trouble that night, and the room/bed/shower etc were superb. Breakfast the following morning was freshly cooked, and set us up for the rest of our journey north.
As a result of our experience, we immediately booked for the following week on our return journey home, hoping for a repeat performance! (We don't ever return to a place if we don't like it!).
Needless to say, on our return visit, we were even more pleasantly surprised by the warmth of our welcome, and by the friendliness and efficiency of Stephen's staff.
I had a great stay at Hamilton House whilst for a meeting at the Council offices which was only a 5 min walk away and 2 mins from the train station. The room was big and the facilities clean, nice tea and coffee and the breakfast was lovely and well presented.
Stayed here for 1 night as was sailing from Cairnryan the morning after. Fantastic hotel, and even packed me a packed breakfast as i was leaving early. Take swimming kit, as good pool, hot tub and sauna for guests. I will go back when I have more time to properly enjoy
The hotel staff and management really make this hotel what it is. They are extremely attentive to your every need. The hotel is lovely and quiet with beautiful fields surrounding it. The food was amazing on both nights. Would definitely visit again and would recommend this as a wedding venue

excellent reception,perfect weather,room as expected from other reviews,dinner service a little slow as drinks came from bar and food from kitchens with different staff so delays especially in providing drinks quickly before meals,longish intervals,but all in all a perfect late summer break.The policy of having several wine choices at the same price means that they are all a bit too expensive even allowing for the fact that wine is always overpriced in British hotels,it should be possible to provide a choice at well under the £17 minimum,the same applies to the individual glass price.Apart from this everything was very good.
Lovely hotel in a quiet village. Hotel was very clean, breakfast great & you could choose any option you liked, the host would cook to your liking. Very friendly and knowledgable host who was happy to advise about the local area or help in any way. Would definitely stay again and would recommend.
