The King's Arms Hotel Bar

a warm welcome...

As a former Coaching Inn recognised by Visit Scotland (and which recently welcomed H.R.H. The Duke of Rothesay), the King's has been offering food and refreshments to guests for over 200 years.
Our rooms are attractively furnished, en suite with colour TV, Tea and Coffee makers.

The hotel is the perfect base for all visitors whether it be - golfers, walkers , motor bikers, mountain bikers & cyclists,  or to just  relax and enjoy the unspoilt beauty of Dumfries and Galloway.






The King's Arms is also the ideal location from which to base the perfect Golfing Holiday. There are no less than 30 courses across the region including the championship links at Southerness and Powfoot.
