Average hotel but poor management

02/01/2018 Andrew M,

I always try to be honest when writing reveiws and always base them on my experience of the stay. Originally we only planned to stay one night as we were attending a surprised birthday party, but we d... more

Dear reviewer, sometimes we get it wrong, you booked a superior room but in fact were allocated a standard double room, for this we apologise. The mistake was explained fully and an immediate refund was offered by myself ,

Business Trip - Return Leg

A great hotel just outside Lockerbie. A really nice looking hotel set in its own grounds. The rooms are fantastic, spacious and warm (remember it is December). Ate in the hotel restaurant and again ... more

Didn't get to stay due to incorrect pet policy online

05/12/2017 RadioactiveSquirrel, Glasgow

I booked this for a stop over whilst moving house, along with my dog. Booked via Trivago which specified on its website that the hotel was pet friendly (see photo). The next day (Sunday) I was rung ... more

Dear Reviewer, It saddens us that your frustration regarding your wish to bring a dog to our hotel without ever contacting the hotel direct, you chose instead to source your information from the internet which a third party called TRIVAGO, which is an online search engine used for seeking the lowest price online, this online company has no relationship with the hotel or Best Western Brand, you then chose to book with Booking.Com which clearly states no pets allowed, in fact all the below websites state no pets allowed :- Booking.com states no pets allowed Best Western website no pets allowed Dryfesdale hotel states no pets allowed Had you chosen to read the clear policies which are on your confirmation from booking.com, to which you also agreed you had received, your frustration would be better directed to TRIVAGO not the hotel, who attempted to contact you immediately to let you know that we do not accept pets. This review website is for genuine customers who stay with us, not a forum for you to vent your frustration with the internet.

Excellent Alternative to Premier Inn

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your excellent review, the chef wishes to pass on their comments also, that we only have homemade soup served here which is made fresh every day, the burgers are homemade as chef trims all our own meats and steaks by hand and then minces the cuttings down to make delicious homemade burgers you enjoyed. We do stock Baked beans and all you had to do was ask and they would have been added to your breakfast upon request, especially as they are so important to your personal breakfast experience. We look forward to welcoming you to the hotel again in the future.
