Just a short walk from the main train station, the Cairndale Hotel & Leisure Club is based in a striking sandstone building in the heart of Dumfries.

The hotel offers a restaurant, leisure club facilities and spa treatments, as well as free parking and WiFi. Regular music nights mean that you might even enjoy a bit of entertainment during your stay.

The Cairndale makes for a convenient getaway, as it is only a 90-minute drive from Glasgow and two hours from Edinburgh.

Comfortable rooms

All guest rooms at the hotel are tastefully decorated and you can even arrange little romantic extras, such as rose petals scattered on your bed.

All have an ensuite bathroom, complimentary refreshments, TV, hairdryer and iron with ironing board.

Traditional British and Scottish cuisine

A range of classic British and traditional Scottish dishes are served each day at the hotel’s Reivers Restaurant.

Menus can change, but typical choices might include confit duck leg bon-bons or cream of lentil soup to start, followed by mains such as roast silverside of beef with all the trimmings; salmon & hake fish cakes with dill dressing, and mushroom risotto topped with a poached egg.

You might also find it hard to resist desserts like Eton mess or Eve’s pudding with custard.

Leisure club and spa treatments

The Barracuda Club offers a heated swimming pool, sauna, steam room, spa pool and fully equipped gym with air conditioning.

The gym includes a number of state-of-the-art cardio touch screen facilities from Life Fitness. As well as this, there are resistance stations and a well-equipped weight area.

At the spa salon, guests can enjoy a range of indulgences such as aromatherapy massages, reflexology and beauty treatments.

Explore Dumfries and beyond

A historic market town near the mouth of the River Nith, Dumfries is a fascinating place to explore. Beyond the town are some beautiful natural attractions, such as Galloway Forest Park.

The Cairndale is happy to help guests make the most of the numerous golfing opportunities in the local area, while castle visits, mountain biking and quad driving are also available nearby.

Both the Robert Burns House and 17th century Old Bridge House are less than a 10-minute walk from the hotel, while the Dumfries & Galloway Aviation Museum is only a short drive away.

Nature lovers might want to spend some time at the Caerlaverock Wildfowl and Wetland Trust, also easy to reach by car.
