Good Hotel Guide Review

On the banks of the River Nith, near the Southern Upland Way, this restaurant-with-rooms with a ‘welcoming atmosphere’ and a ‘restful ambience’ is ‘well worth a detour for the food alone’. Chef/patron Ian McAndrew is praised for his ‘imaginative yet unpretentious menus’ and ‘elegant, inspired cooking’; his wife, Jane, runs the ‘beautiful’ 16th-century stone-built manse with ‘care and attention’. Recently refurbished bedrooms now have an up-to-date bathroom with a spa bath and a monsoon shower. Each room is different, so discuss choices when booking – the River Suite (adjacent to the hotel) has magnificent views from a private patio; a small double room was less liked by guests this year. ‘Plenty of choice’ at a ‘well-cooked breakfast’.

Guest comments

'Our room was spacious, newly decorated in a traditional manne, with a vast and most comfortable bed. The meals, prepared by a former Michelin-starred chef, were outstanding with an imaginative five-course fine dining menu , served with all the treats in a friendly and attentive manner. ' - Michael Asquith - July, 2018
'A lovely small hotel, quiet and secluded. The rooms are kept to a very high standard and the staff are attentive and helpful. The chef does a superb dinner, right at the top of the scale. Conveniently located for hikers and the Nith Valley is right on your doorstep. ' - Peter Kornicki - May, 2018
'Staying here is one of our indulgences. Lovely house in a marvelous setting, spotlessly clean, with large, comfortable rooms looking out over gardens and river. As before, our welcome was warm, and we enjoy chatting to Ian and Jane McAndrew. A walk up the riverside before dinner is a treat. And we defy anyone to find somewhere better to eat in Scotland. Four-course dinner on our first night was superb. But the eight-course gourmet dinner the following night was amazing. Breakfast, too, is delightful, with a very wide choice of freshly prepared dishes. ' - Ross and Liz McKay - July, 2017
