Did not know what to expect from this meal , as this is essentially a pub , but it was excellent. Huge portions, well cooked and presented with the Game soup the star of my meal. We visited on a lunch time, mid week, and ate in the bar ( I think there is a separate dining room) so the... More

We spent a week self catering in Moffat last week and tried most of the Hotels - at least 4 of them and found the Star Hotel to be our favourite. Great food, warm and relaxed atmosphere and terrific value for money. They also made our dog very welcome - something we lack in our hometown. It was so nice... More

Visited several times and stayed once ( have rebooked!) Kitschy kind of feel in the restaurant upstairs which I love, always a welcome in both bars, and food is wonderful and home cooked. My room was comfortable and great value with an amazing breakfast!

An experience to see and visit at this old and beautiful and distinctively different hotel, so narrow, yet offers a great service. Thank you.

A character stay in a town full to the brim with hotels! Booked as a "convenience journey break" just off the main road. Reception is at the bar, staff were welcoming and attentive. Room was perhaps fairly recently updated? Everything worked, was clean and comfortable. A good, comfortable bed, controllable heating and all the "nick backs" required for a cosy... More
