I loved the atmosphere immediately on entering this well decorated quaint pub. The open fire made me feel very warm and cosy. The menu was exquisite and I really enjoyed my meal. The waitress was very friendly and attentive, I highly recommend a visit and I will gladly drive a round trip of 65 miles again for my lunch :)

My wife and I travelled a 70 mile round trip to eat here as we had heard good reports. Sad to say ours was very disappointing, we have many years experience in the catering industry and we both enjoy good food and service and frequently visit some excellent restaurants. When we informed the waitress that my wife could not eat... More

We had eaten here before, when visiting our son, who lives nearby, and returned with two friends to stay overnight. We have found this to be the best place to eat for miles around.

We stayed for two nights last month as part of a tour around Dumfries and Galloway. It only has two rooms (and a cottage next door which we heard about through others). The rooms are well furnished and comfortable with everything you need. The pub is great, serving better than average food and great beer (my husband's a real ale... More

We booked to stay here for 3 nights in October and it was a lovely stay. The rooms and the pub itself are a lot more luxurious than one would expect, the bus stops right outside and it is literally only a few minutes walk to the Glentrool visitor centre for Galloway forest park. The rooms are lovely; comfortable, modern,... More

I recently stayed here whilst doing the Southern Upland Way. The staff couldn't have been more friendly when I walked in after completing 18.6 miles. What's more when I had no phone signal to contact my accommodation the following night, and asked where there was a telephone box, they offered free use of the hotel phone, a minor point, but...

We booked a table here whilst on our camper holiday on August bank holiday. The quality of the food was brilliant and the service really friendly and relaxed. I don't often get a steak cooked exactly how I like it (medium rare) but this was one of the best steaks I have ever had. Thanks for a great evening.

We stayed here for one night while walking the Southern Upland Way. We found the staff very friendly and welcoming considering we were walkers. The room was modern , clean and had a boot tray for our muddy boots. The en-suite shower room was excellent. The food in the restaurant was of a great standard and excellent value for money.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since taking over the House O'Hill in March 2010, we have tastefully refurbished all areas of the hotel. But what makes the House O'Hill truly special is the warm welcome and friendly atmosphere that greets weary visitors looking for rest and relaxation away from the stresses of modern urban living. Set in the Galloway Forest, we are the perfect base for exploring the Galloway hills and taking part in the vast array of outdoor pursuits the area has to offer. To name but a few, we are closely situated to the Glentrool 7 Stane mountain bike trail as well as being in the middle of the UK's first Dark Sky Park! We offer B&B, DB&B and self catering tariffs for guests. We can even rustle you up a packed lunch to take away with you during your explorations. Our cosy restaurant boasts first rate cuisine and there will always be a roaring fire and friendly welcome awaiting you. ... more   less
