Full Description
The Dumfries Arms Hotel is a contemporary, stylish boutique hotel that has a rich 300 year history behind it. Situated in the ancient burgh of Cumnock the hotel has played host to many colourful characters over the years. These include Scotland’s national bard, Robert Burns who spent many a night at the old hotel bar, entertaining the locals. Sir Walter Scott, the poet and novelist who frequented the hotel in times gone by was quoted to say ‘Old Cumnock, where the beds are as hard as planks, sir’. How times have changed. The old hotel has undergone a complete transformation and now boasts one of Ayrshire's largest and most stylish wedding venues along with 26 elegant bedrooms. We can accommodate both small intimate wedding as well as grand elaborate celebrations for up to 250 guests. From the first meeting to the big days itself, we have expert staff who will guide you through your arrangements to ensure that your special day is just the way that you want it. We pride ourselves on our flexible approach ensuring that your requests are met wherever possible.
