The Nith Hotel

Located in the lovely village of Glencaple, in Caerlaverock, The Nith Hotel lies just 5 miles south of Dumfries in South West Scotland.

With splendid views over the River Nith to Criffel and the Solway Firth, our visitors and residents are delighted with the outlook!

While making this the perfect location for both visitors and residents today, it also lends itself to an interesting past.

Glencaple is a special place immersed in History, having been a busy port over 250 years ago.

It is fascinating to consider that The Nith Hotel has been looking after visitors since the late 1800’s. And you can expect a genuinely warm welcome and a comfortable stay to this day! Dumfries & Galloway boasts some of the finest scenery in Southern Scotland. Alongside the landscape, you will find many places to visit as well as plenty of interesting local attractions.

Family owned for generations

A genuine welcome awaits visitors to the family run Nith Hotel. The Houliston family have over 60 years’ experience in the Nith Hotel. Therefore 3 generations of Houlistons have offered a top class service! Nowadays, Joan and Jen Houliston take a personal interest to ensure guests receive a special welcome and enjoyable stay.

The en-suite bedrooms are comfortable and provide you with stunning views over the riverside scenery. In addition, our restaurant is highly regarded throughout the area for its varied menu of high-quality cuisine. And guests and visitors return again and again. Many tell us it is because they appreciate the wholesome, home-made food. Above all, our long-established chefs use fresh, local ingredients whenever possible.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Nith Hotel in person!


Our 8 light and airy bedrooms comprise singles, twins, doubles and a family room.

The rooms at The Nith Hotel are all well appointed with en-suite or private bath or shower room for your comfort. You will also find that our rooms are well maintained and provide the perfect place to relax after a day’s activities. You will love the views over the River Nith to Criffel as they are stunning at every time of year! A truly Scottish view – changing every second!


From 8.00 am – 9.15 am each morning, we offer you a full traditional Scottish Breakfast which is served in the main restaurant. With views up-river this time, our hearty breakfast (which is included in your stay) gives you an excellent start to the day. Each day of your stay!


You can be sure of a pleasant stay and our staff are always pleased to assist you. We will also gladly provide advice on the best sights and attractions in the area.
