The Manor Country House Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Torthorwald
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 July 2016

Myself my husband and our 3 year old daughter stayed at the Manor Hotel for 3 brilliant nights. We booked the tower room so our slightly crazy daughter had room to run round, and it was a fantastic room, large, spacious, clean and very comfortable. We had a good nights sleep as the location was very quiet.
The full Scottish breakfast was lovely and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The family that run the hotel, Ken, Caroline and Jackie are very warm and friendly, and made us feel very welcome, our daughter made friends with the family's dog, who helped to wear out our energetic daughter! All the staff we met were lovely and nothing was to much trouble for them. We also met some of the locals in the bar, who made us very welcome an also made us laugh!
overall one of the best stays in a hotel that we have had and will definitely be going back again, thank you to all of you.
Tracy, John and little Aine x

Room Tip: The tower room has lots of space and a large bathroom.

Stayed here with my husband as we were in the area taking part in tough mudder. Lovely building, room big and clean and had a great night sleep. We had a meal in restaurant which was lovely and tasty, big portions and brilliant value.
The owners are lovely people, took time to chat to us and as we were leaving early before breakfast put together an amazing box of rolls, snacks and drinks for us. Even a wee bottle of prosecco! which we'll be raising a glass to our tough mudder success tonight. Can't remember the last time we stayed somewhere where the customer care was so good. Thank you so much!! Will definitely recommend and will be back

Had a really good family sunday lunch here today. Meals were a good size, my ten year old had a half portion which she really enjoyed. it was beef and pork, roast potatoes, mash, vegetables. Yorkshire pudding and gravy. The Yorkshire pudding was home- made and the gravy was delicious. The draft Peroni was excellent and my son who has a dairy allergy was well catered for, with the staff happily substituting ice cream for jelly. It was not too busy, the staff were a bit pushed and they could have done with maybe one more waitress on as it took a while for plates to be cleared but that would be the only drawback I could mention. We will not hesitate to return food was great and helpful staff

We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Our room was a good size and had a sofa for added comfort and it was kept spotlessly clean. The beds were super comfortable and we slept well.
I had liaised with Ken throughout our booking procedure and this was all handled most efficiently. In fact Ken was most attentive whilst we were guests.
We cannot heap enough praise on this hotel for its excellent standard of cuisine, both breakfast and dinner were always fantastic. The highland chicken was delicious and whenever we ate the staff went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed the experience.
We chose to stay here as we like to go to nature reserves and we found several in the area, Ken Dee marshes, Threave Castle, Caelaverock and Lockerbie, all of which we can recommend the latter providing a red squirrel amongst many different species of animals.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a good view of the garden

We have just spent 2 nights at this hotel and I have to say Ken and Caroline are two of the best hoteliers I have met.....we were greeted at the door by Caroline the first day and by a member of staff the second day.....The room was large and very clean....we ate in the restaurant on our second night and the food was delicious....I had the salmon with coconut rice sweet chilli sauce and stir fried veg....my husband and one of our friends had highland chicken (chicken stuffed with haggis) mash and veg and he thought it was brilliant....we also know the fajitas are excellent too as our friend had that and he loved them.....the staff couldn't be more friendly and polite....the price for the meal was very reasonable too....we ate in the bar rather than the dinning room and the atmosphere was brilliant....there was a large tv playing but it didn't spoil and thing as it was not overly loud....breakfast was a delight....even though I ordered a full English for my husband and Ken laughingly pointed out it was a full Scottish....for which I apologised....I had poached egg with toast (I will point out here that they are not done in a proper poacher but were beautifully cooked with runny yolks and the white properly cooked and not like jelly like I have had in other hotels) and we also had a mound of toast with butter jam and honey on the table too.
The hotel is child friendly too as there was a couple of families there and they were well looked after too.
The only thing I would say is the beds are quite firm and as I have arthritis in my back I found them to be uncomfortable....I pointed this out to Ken and he said it was because he had just replaced most of the beds and he chose firm ones because he wanted good ones that would stand up to the constant use....this will not stop me from going again as I did mange to sleep.
