We stayed using a voucher which the new owners kindly honoured. Our room was a bit dated but was spotlessly clean and had all the amenities required apart from WIFI, but this was a very minor issue and was completely out of the new owners hands and down to the network provider. We were able to get WIFI elsewhere if...

I booked this hotel back in May and had arranged to stay this weekend for the same price as the deal that had been running but finished the week before. When I phoned earlier in the week to confirm my booking I was told very abruptly that the hotel had changed hands and when I asked if that would be...

On arriving at the Douglas Arms you will almost certainly feel uncertain about what you have let yourself in for. BE NOT AFRAID your hosts will make all your fears disappear. Friendly, warm and genuine is perhaps the best way to describe them. When I consider how little time they have had to settle in all my wife and I...

We were apprehensive about visiting the Douglas Arms after reading some of the recent reviews. Having just spent two days here I would suspect that they were written by someone who has never stayed here and has another agenda. Yes the building needs some love and attention...especially to urgently replace the missing name sign from the front of the hotel,...

Had a lovely 2 day stay in this hotel. Friendly staff, comfortable room and highly recommend the food!! Although we were there on a 'deal' we were able to choose our food from the hotel menu and specials board. Definitely recommend

From my experience the only good thing about this hotel was the owner Lynsey. Sad to see that she is no longer there as the poor thing was doing her best to bring a crumbling hotel back to life. As for the previous review I think if you plan on introducing new "MANAGEMENT" you really "NEED" to make sure the...

Its a huge room with a four poster bed and a Jacuzzi!! All the staff which include katie, amanda,big D(the chef) and of course Lynsey were excellent and couldn't do...

Just like to say thank you very much to the proprietors for letting me and my partner travel all the way from Edinburgh on Friday the 6th of June 2014 only to find that the place had closed down. We both took time off our work to enjoy a supposedly good weekend only to have to travel back to Edinburgh...
