4/5 Good

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
All staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed with our 2 young children and it became apparent that the hotel was not particularly tailored for children. The pool was clean and well maintained but not great for young kids. The bathroom in our family room was a big surprise with a jacuzzi bath and built in TV….nice!!!

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel is in a great location with the main town of Dumfries within a few minutes walk which is a bonus. Deluxe room with jet bath very poor value. Would not pay that again. Bath was far too short so you couldn’t stretch out. Very narrow too. The tv in the bathroom was great but due to internet issues could not use. I ended up hot-spotting data from my phone to play music whilst in the jet bath. There was no air conditioning in the room which made sleeping very uncomfortable and was a factor in deciding to leave a day early. The food was questionable. We had a steak dinner on the first night after which I was sick. The hot breakfast buffet was cold. The tea was as black as the coffee - both undrinkable. Very poor service in the restaurant. They seemed under staffed. The internet issues meant that we weren’t able to stream Netflix etc for an evening movie. Very disappointed. The saving grace was the leisure facilities. The pool, sauna and jacuzzi were all open and we spent most of the time there. I would return again based on location and leisure facilities but not service or amenities. Would benefit greatly from an upgrade on basics eg good internet connection, air conditioning etc.
