    The owners Douglas and Chris are charming and helpful and very much around the hotel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable as is the bar and bistro. The restaurant is excellent and the food in both the restaurant and bistro is first class. Breakfast very good too. Douglas and Chris are there to suggest places of interest and help to make your stay just the way you want it. Nothing is too much trouble. I highly recommend this hotel.

    Nice clean hotel with friendly staff. Food was well cooked and served in pleasant surroundings.

    Only problem was in the situation of the room. We were allocated room 16 which had a total of 30 stairs up to it. It was a bit of challenge for my wife as she suffers from arthritis. As our stay was only two nights we stayed put, but if we had requested another room, i'm sure the request would have been treated sympathetically.

    It is very conveniently locarted and the parking is easy. The food is excellent and fairly priced. The staff are friendly and efficient.

    I went to the final jazz concert of the Kirkcudbright Jazz Festival on the Sunday evening and returned to find that I had been locked out of the hotel.I was not impressed by this!

    The rooms which have been renovated look absoutely super and the staff are very friendly.

    Just a bit more work to get the hotel up to the same standards as the bedrooms. I'm sure it will look amazing!

    Very welcoming and helpful staff. We had rooms in the cottage annexe which had a sitting room as well. Very pleasant relaxing there, even though bar area very inviting! Food excellent and very good choice or evening meals and breakfast

    The location of The Selkirk Arms in the centre of Kirkcudbright was perfect for our purpose of meeting up with friends in the area. Private car parking was limited but plenty of street parking around the hotel meant it was not an issue. The friendliness and professionalism of the staff (apart from breakfast service) made the stay a success for us as first impressions are so important. We felt appreciated as guests and that is what hospitality is all about. Our room was very quiet whilst compact and functional. The quality, presentation and service in the evening restaurant, Artisans, was excellent and certainly lived up to our expectations from recommendations and past reviews. A 2 or 3 course fixed price menu of choice means you know exactly what budget to work to together with a good wine list. - Thank You to All.

    The quality of food served and presentation at breakfast was very good, however the young lady in attendance spoiled the whole experience. She had no interpersonal skills or eye contact and just went through the motions, on the first morning storming around the dining room with a different agenda, which seemed quite alien in comparison to the rest of the staff who are very accomodating. I just hope she receives some re- training, as she cannot be enjoying this role or getting any satisfaction from it.

    A very friendly and comfortable hotel where staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and at home.

    Mattress just a little hard for my taste!

    Friendly and helpful staff coupled with good food and prompt service. In total, good value for money.

    Slight inconvenience in parking but not significant.
