My son and I visited Lockerbie for only 1 day and needed a place to stay. Found the Townhead Hotel online, it looked nice, and we booked it. However, little did we know the **WONDERFUL SURPRISE** that awaited us! Read on... The rooms are not only clean, they are spotless! We had everything we needed and more. Even better than...

We stayed here as we got married at Gretna Green. The room was beautiful. Immaculately clean and lots of little touches. The staff were amazingly friendly as we're the locals of Lockerbie. Nothing was too much trouble for Steven and the rest of his great team who work so hard especially Angela and Leanne.....Thanks everyone for the card, flowers and...

Breaking a drive back from the Hebrides to London, this seemed an obvious overnight stop given all the positive recent reviews. All I can really do is confirm the key elements mentioned repeatedly by others: an incredibly warm welcome from Stephen and all the staff (despite arriving at 7.30 pm on a Saturday night); a spotlessly clean comfortable room; a...

Hi Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of your stay with us. It is great to read that you were made to feel welcome, as this is always our aim. You had a really long journey even to get to Lockerbie, so it was nice for us to make sure that you were then able...

The rooms are clean and comfortable. A little noise percolated up from the bar below but it wasn't too bad and ended early. The food, both breakfast and dinner, was very good. Eating in small towns in Scotland can be a risky proposition, but this hotel was great. The staff are very friendly and make you feel at home. I...

Had an overnight stay in the most comfortable of rooms. The bed was the best hotel bed I've ever had. Actually slept! The shower room was small but perfectly formed and fully equipped. Lovely extra touches everywhere. Would definitely stay again if I,m in the area. All that aside, the staff were fab, so helpful and on the ball. Food...

My wife and I stayed here and had a very comfortable couple of nights. The bedroom was spotless and every thought was taken for the care and comfort of the people staying there. The only minus was we could not stay for a much longer time. Hospitality taken to the very highest level.

Only called in for drinks but there was no Real Ale and dogs are only allowed at the end of one of the bars, not particularly welcoming. On the plus side there is a good outside area for smokers and dog owners
