Positive Reviews

The Staff is Very Accommodating

Many guests said that the hotel staff is wonderful. The reception staff attends to every need, and the restaurant staff is able to easily accommodate requests. So, if you have any allergies or dietary requirements, you can easily eat there.

The Food is All Fabulous

Guests all agree that the food at the Black Horse Newton Stewart is all fabulous, regardless of whether it's the breakfast, lunch, or dinner menu. You can be assured of lots of options and high-quality, flavourful dishes. Guests also said that the dining area is generally immaculately clean and the waitstaff seems to be well-trained.

The Rooms Are Clean

Many guests have said that their rooms were quite clean upon arrival. The beds always have fresh linens, and the rooms are always properly dusted. Several guests said that the bathrooms were also clean and free of mould or mildew.

Negative Reviews

The Bar is Loud at Night

By far the biggest complaint about the hotel is that it can be quite loud at night. Most of the noise comes from the bar, but the road outside can also be loud. So, you should request a room at the back of the hotel away from the bar if at all possible.

Breakfast is Only Served for a Short Time

Many guests were disappointed by the fact that there is only a small time window in which to order breakfast in the morning. If you like to sleep late, particularly on Sundays, you may miss the morning meal entirely.

Some Rooms Have Poor Layouts

Several guests said that the bedrooms are arranged in such a way that they feel small and cramped. Some guests also commented that the showers are far too tiny considering all of the extra space available in the bathrooms.
