"Good value, comfortable rooms"
02/08/14 rovingduck Coventry, United Kingdom
Very friendly owners and comfortable rooms. I stayed in a large room on the top floor which had a bath, sofa, tv and nice view. Very quiet with a comfortable bed made for a good night's sleep. Breakfast was delicious with a good choice, dinner was also nice however a little pricey (approx £30 from memory) but included three courses and wine. A nice quiet part of Moffat but not really walking distance to the centre of town. Very good value for money.
We recently stayed for our anniversary, as an elderly couple they couldn't be more helpful. Carrying our suitcases up the stairs and arranging for us to be in the most suitable room. The food was absolutely wonderful. Anyone who stays in Moffat should definitely stay in this hotel. Can't thank you enough. Mary and Peter Garioch.
"Luxury at a fair price"

We have stayed at this delightful family run hotel on several occasions on our way further north.There is always a warm welcome, a fantastic lounge for coffee or pre dinner drinks. The breakfasts and dinners are of exceptional quality as is all the accommodation.
"Not well located"

I do agree will the previous review on most things. This definite B&B is difficult to find and it was dark when we arrived and we did spend quite a while finding it. We also could not have an evening meal, it also needs pointing out there is no bar area and presumably no alcohol licence. The 'delux' room was fine and very clean. I requested the 4 poster bed pictured on the Internet and was told it was an old picture and they no longer had this room. The breakfast was really very good, I had the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs which was a real treat. I particularly liked having all the condiments in individual pots, it was rather a blast from the past but lovely. For us it is just too far away from the centre of Moffatt.
"Not so much a hotel, more a B&B"

We chose this hotel as it offered fine dining, but on arrival (at 3:30pm) were told that this was not available, and were cursorily informed that there were plenty of places to dine in the village. There was no recommendation on where to go, or not to go. If you are relying on a meal on arrival, it is worthwhile checking before you book. Next day, the breakfast menu showed smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, this was also not available. So much for fine dining! A definite disappointment as we booked the place thinking that we could eat there! Our first room, a twin, was cosy with perhaps a dated feel to the decor, but was spotlessly clean. What surprised us, was that there was no shower, not even in the corner bath. Luckily, the place was rather empty and we were re-assigned to a room with a shower (no bath). We had a deluxe room, but personally am unclear as to what made the room de luxe. It looked fairly standard with a small TV (22inch?) in the window arch and too far to watch in bed. The windows are sash windows and steamed up very heavily with water pouring down in the morning. Heating was acceptable. Finding the place on the outreach of the village gave us a problem, and it took us 3 times up and down the road before we found it. The signage is inadequate and in the dark (we did it in daylight), would be very challenging to find. Breakfast is only 8-9, so inappropriate for an early start. The dining room with its single oval table, had no cereals or juices set out for selection. These were on the menu as an option but there was no detail on what cereals actually were on offer. Overall, I would say that this was at the high end of pricing considering that it was very much a B&B with communal eating around a single table for 6-8 people.

On a 18 day holiday to Scotland we used Trip Advisor as a guide in helping to plan our trip. The Well View did have mixed reviews however on reading them I took the view that the unhappy people really wanted to stay in a conventional hotel. Luckily I was proved correct. We had a luxurious large room, the food and service were excellent. Both my wife and I enjoy the communal table in the dining room as we enjoy chatting to other guests. We have met all sorts of interesting people through this. If you want a superb room, with excellent food, attentive service for your needs and a chance to chat to other guests this is place to stay. Personally I would call it a guest house rather than a hotel then it would match what it says on the tin. If you want to be anonymous and left entirely to your own devices, having a wide menu fresh from the freezer, then stay in a hotel as this is not the place for you.

"THE WORST HOTEL I HAVE EVER STAYED IN!!!!!!!!"
11/13/11 siellieburrows Edinburgh, United Kingdom
This hotel is AWFUL! You have NO privacy, the food is terrible, you sit in a dining area with 1 table that you share with strangers, you have to be back in the hotel by 11pm or you are locked out, hotel ower always there when you entered hotel/left and evven on comming out of the room, we had decorative pillows removed from our bed when we were out (VERY STRANGE) but did not service the room???????????????? Having spoken to some of the locals they even compair it to the Baites motel. Please take our advice DO NOT GO THERE AND AVOID AT ALL COSTS. You honestly will regret it if you do.

Having stayed here before, we were looking forward to returning. The hotel web site was encouraging but turned out to be very misleading, so beware. This time we had a room in the attic, with cooking smells and a non-functional shower. The bath took ten minutes to fill. The restaurant was very disappointing indeed, as all guests had to sit together at the same table like at a boarding school and so make polite conversation with total strangers. Good food (no choice however), served with no choice of (mediocre) wine completely spoiled by the dining table arrangements. If you want a quiet meal with a friend/partner or on your own, forget it! Web site says and shows different. Thank goodness we only booked for one night. Even the view from our window was inaccurate, all we got was a big cypress tree in the way! Given all that, it was relatively expensive for what was only a glorified boarding house.

Anyone interested in good food should make a stop over here when visiting the Dumfries area. The six course meal, which comprised Carrot and Apricot Soup, Griddled Marinated Salmon on a bed of pasta, Fillet of Venison with red cabbage, new potatoes and parsnip crisps, a selection of interesting cheeses and Lemon tart with vanilla and butterscotch sauce (which was to die for!), coffee and sweetmeats, was superb. Fantastic food in very comfortable surroundings, this jewel of a small hotel in Moffat is well worth a visit for those looking fine dining. The Well View Hotel is owned by John and Janet Schuckardt - Chef/Proprietor Janet Schuckardt is one of the Chef Trainers for the Natural Cooking of Scotland as well as a Member of the Scottish Chef's Association. John Schuckardt is a Fellow of the Academy of Food and Wine Service and has drawn up an extensive wine list to complement his wife's Cuisine. Dinner was an amazing £30.00 per head. Do try this place.
