Reviews from TripAdvisor

“Lovely small hotel set in the middle of Dalmellington. Lovely period property with period furniture and furnishings. We stayed here to visit the Scottish Dark Sky Observatory. The hotel staff were really friendly and the room was spotless. The cooked breakfast was lovely and there was cereal and fruit juice as well.”

“Dallmellington house is exquisite. Yes, the decor, food and cleanliness are amazing, but it's the people that are exquisite. Anne and Gillian are the friendliest and funniest of people. These ladies looked after us like family. The food that was cooked for us was fit for a king, the rooms were beautifully decorated and as clean as a whistle, the rooms were warm and welcoming and it was very affordable. Nothing was too much trouble, even the request to have a guest with us for dinner. I loved this house, it was just like coming home.”

“A gem of a hotel. A very good and comfortable small hotel with excellent food not far from the scenic Loch Doon and Craigengillan Estate. Highly recommended. What is most interesting is that it is run for the East Ayrshire Carers Trust and so profits go to that trust. The Hotel is also used to train young people to get a NVQ in hospitality. So not only will you enjoy your stay, but you will be contributing to a worthwhile cause.”
