8/10 Very good

Looking forward to going here again
Apart from a couple of hiccups at the start of our stay (bedroom washbasin sink blocked, hot water off for an entire day) we generally enjoyed being here. We were upgraded to a better room at no cost due to these problems. Breakfasts are generally ok, but at evening the waitering effort is disjointed, the food offered is of mediocre quality, and the overall experience is not worth the price charged. The room we had was really nice, with a view across the grounds to the Crichton Memorial Church. The room was very spacious, the bathroom well-appointed and clean, and the housekeeping staff very friendly and helpful. The Reception staff are helpful and efficient, save for one male member of staff who has a "sense of humour" which needs a bit of getting used to. We would definitely stay here again and are already pencilling-in a date for our next visit. The Hotel is well-placed for exploring Dumfries and Galloway.

Quiet and nice surroundings
Large comfortable room, good breakfast, some carpets around hotel could do with replacing. Set in the lovely surrounding of the Crichton grounds

6/10 Good

Expensive, but thats Dumfries
Far too expensive for type of hotel but given the shocking choices of hotels in Dumfries its average priced for there. Staff all very friendly and helpful, especially the very charming Nicky on front desk :) Cannot speak for all rooms but 222 has a definite bad smell from the air conditioning system, and there is no need at all for the heating to be full blast in the foyers between lift/stairs and doors to bedroom corridors. Clean and tidy and the cleaners do very well

Holiday inn Crichton
Lively stay and beautiful location in the middle of the university park. The only downside was food in the evening was an over cooked buffet with no menu choice which meant we had to go out and find food. Apart from that very good

2/10 Poor

We've stayed at this Hotel before and decided to re-book with an evening meal. Disappointingly we were informed at 7:45am that day, the evening meal wasn't available due to chef issues. We've stayed at many other Holiday Inns, including another the week before, but unlike other Holiday inns, we found the room wasn't as clean as we'd expect. Lots of dust about/grimy bed head/very dirty TV remote etc. The reception apologised and offered free drinks at the bar and another room. On inspection, while the alternative room was a bit better, it was similarly quite dusty with dirt spills on the walls etc. Given the recent (an ongoing) pandemic, it wasn't what we'd expect, or previously experienced at this hotel several years ago. It also wasn't anywhere near the cleanliness we'd experienced at three other holiday accommodations over the last 2 weeks. We decided to cancel the accommodation and didn't stay
