The King’s Arms Hotel

A Family-run golf hotel in the heart of Galloway.

The King’s Arms Hotel has been trading for well over 200 years, and began its life as a coaching inn and posting department. In those days, it mostly offered accommodation for tourists and commercial gentlemen.

The King’s retains unique, antique features from these early days, including original leather posting bags and beautiful brass post horns. The horns were once sounded by mail guards, who travelled the country in horse-drawn carriages delivering and collecting post. The powerful noise of the horn would announce their arrival, or tell people to make way for them on country roads. Sadly, despite various attempts from the owners’ children over the years, the horns no longer sound.


We are a traditional Scottish Hotel and Restaurant in the Heart of Castle Douglas.

At the present time we are open again for food in the restaurant and tables do need to be booked in advance.

Catering for the whole families needs in this lovely hotel.

Please phone us on 01556 502626 to make your reservation.

We look forward to seeing you.

We also cater for golfers and we are surrounded by some beautiful courses.
