    Mixed experience

    The hotel has been refurbished to a high standard but there appears to be little attention paid to standards of customer service. A number of items were not available on the food menu although food served was good pub standard .Requests for items for the room were not met by housekeeping staff until further requests made. Room including bed not re-made during 3 night stay. This may be acceptable on New Years Day but not on next day. When bookings are taken for the festive period guests should expect that hotel would be staffed and services available to cover their stay. Clean towels were provided when requested. Some staff were very helpful and efficient but others do not appear to give the hotel much of a priority. Could be it was a bad time of year to visit but the festive period is surely important to the hospitality trade.

    OK but could be better

    Hotels.com showed a 14.00 check in but it was only from 15.00. We waited in the bar and eventually we were taken up. The room had been ready from 12.00 so completely unnecessary to have kept us waiting. The room was clean and functional but will be staying elsewhere on our next stopover in Moffat

    Disappointed with Room

    Nice pub and friendly staff, but the room was tiny. Would have been okay for one person but far too cramped for two people.

    We had an absolutely lovely stay at the black bull, the family room was perfect for us and the service and warm welcome was fantastic.

    Noisy live band til late every Friday night

    Our room was small but comfortable. Breakfast was really good, especially the porridge and omelettes. We know that when you stay in a pub it can be noisier than a hotel or B&B but it would have been good to have been warned at check in that there would be a live band playing until 12.30am in the bar which was immediately beneath our room. It wasn’t mentioned at all, and yet it apparently happens every Friday. Be prepared if you book for a Friday night that you won’t get much sleep as the amplified music and the crowd joining in with the singing will keep you awake until the early hours
