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

'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
'Lovely warm, welcoming hotel. Our room was fabulous, with a four poster and a jacuzzi bath! Plenty of room for extra beds for the kids, who were made just as welcome as we were. Dinner was a culinary triumph! Ian's food is simply sublime. We had the 7 course tasting menu with specially selected glass of wine for each course. Couldn't fault anything! Enjoyed every single mouthful. Breakfast was just as good and the service and attention we received throughout was excellent. ' - Rachel Clayton - January, 2016
'Ian and Jane McAndrew share a passion for providing a high-quality experience for visitors to this beautiful, but somewhat hidden area of Western Scotland. We have found this lovely house a rare delight. Ian and Jane are working on enhancing the already high-standard accommodation, but in the meantime a sublime dining experience is offered. The fine dining menu changes daily but always consists of the freshest food. Even breakfast is to be highly commended. ' - Carol Gardner - April, 2015
