Excellent staff, great room and great food.........generally all round must hotel for the Gretna area
This was our first stop on our journey around scotland and was a great start to the short break...followed by great cooked breakfast in the morning
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.
Just had a one night stay here with my 3 young children.
The room was extremely clean and the bathroom was very modern. Although the room was on the small side we didn't spend much time there other than sleeping so it wasn't really a problem.
I went for breakfast with the children and the staff went out of their way to make it easier for myself, including one member of stafff taking my eldest daughter to choose her breakfast whilst I fed my youngest.
Overall I was extremely impressed with the hotel.
Close to town centre (about 1 mile) but in the quiet grounds of a late 19th century institution - gorgeous sandstone buildings and mature trees in autumn colours. Rooms are in a new, but sypathetically designed, extension to one of the original buildings. Big rooms. Excellent bar and dining facilities. Very helpful staff. Sad to leave and cannot wait to return.
Southern Scotlands largest conference centre hotel. Aston hotel Dumfries blends state of the art facilities with traditional …More
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.
