Stayed here in a family room for four of us (husband + 2 teenage daughters + dog). Big room with ensuite too. Mother had a separate double. Staff were great, remembering I wanted to keep my breakfast scraps for my dog & kept them for me when I forgot!!! They were very helpful & friendly. Would happily stay again.

Kids were very excited to be in a Guiness record holding hotel!! Our bedroom - no. 6 - was the entire width of the narrowest hotel in the UK! The room was a bit old fashioned but perfectly passable and everyone was delightful - especially the young man who served us breakfast on Sunday morning. The dog was made very...

My wife and I paid another visit here and yet again we were not disappointed, we both had the Sunday roast (Finnish at 5) And it was very good. The staff are always very helpful and cheerful. Next time we pass through we will be paying a visit.

Friendly staff and a good atmosphere, food order was taken and our meal was served promptly. Tasty food at good prices, we had a few drinks afterwards and the locals were chatty and good fun. Didn't stay in this Hotel as we were nearby in a holiday let.

Located a few minutes off the M74, it's in the middle of the town. There's a public car park in the middle of the street outside, so we were perhaps 10 yards from the front door. (It would probably be further away in high seasons, but it's free.) The welcome was friendly, and we were taken up to our room...

We booked in for one night to attend a function in Moffat. What a lovely hotel, full of character and spotlessly clean. The food served in the bar and restaurant is of a very high standard and portion sizes are generous. The breakfast menu is extensive and beautifully presented. The staff warm and friendly. We had a bit of a...

Only called in for a drink but found a really welcoming bar with friendly staff the beer quality was very good and the food although untested looked very good. The hotel is interesting in that it is so narrow, it actually features in the Guiness Book of Records for the "worlds narrowest hotel".

£50 per person per night in September 2016 for an en suite bedroom including a cooked breakfast. The bar is open to 11 p.m. and seems well patronised. This is a handy stopping off place for vehicle travellers on the M74 and has a small public car park opposite the hotel. The hotel speciality are their home made pies, I...
