Guardian hotel reviews

“Under the watchful eye of a mother-and-son team, everything on the menu is home-made, from the aromatically irresistible bread to the deliciously combined honey and whisky ice cream.”

By Max Riddlington

The country house home of Trigony House Hotel originally served as the shooting lodge of Closeburn Castle. The hotel combines traditional estate living with the intimacies of a family home.

Under the watchful eye of a mother-and-son team, everything on the menu is home-made, from the aromatically irresistible bread to the deliciously combined honey and whisky ice cream. Organic produce from the recently restored walled garden is a speciality, together with free range and rare breed meat from local suppliers. Game and fish feature heavily, but vegetarians are well provided for and will not be disappointed. The wine list maintains the restaurant’s excellent standards, and for those who like an additional tipple there is a wide selection of malt whiskies and Scottish beers. A variety of countryside pursuits such as horse riding, shooting, fishing and golf are available close by.
