One of the town’s main attractions is the world famous Victorian Purves Puppet Theatre.

Reviews of the Kirkstyle Hotel

Lovely hotel, would recommend! What a lovely place to stay! The staff we met were very nice. Good location with lots of free parking very close by. Our family room was big and had everything we needed. The bathroom was lovely - clean and modern. Breakfast was delicious. We all slept very well. We'd definitely stay here again. Not really any negatives to mention: it was a wee bit chilly in the room (but it's an old building and the weather had just turned very cold!) and perhaps more than 2 teas & 2 coffees for a room for 4 people. But these are only small points, overall it was great and would definitely recommend, thank you!
A lovely, peaceful stay in a family run hotel The Kirkstyle is a lovely family run hotel. Our room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfy, shower powerful and all the personal touches were lovely. There was a fridge in the room with a bottle of milk and water ready for us to use. The area is so quiet so we had a lovely nights sleep. There was a great choice of breakfast and lunch. We had both and the meals were delicious and great value for money. The staff were lovely and friendly. Nothing was a problem and they phoned in advance to see it we needed anything before we arrived. Due to this attention to detail we were able to book dinner for our arrival in a local restaurant and taxis for going to a wedding. There were many lovely shops and pubs to explore around the hotel. The hotel has a lovely outside area which was set up for passing cyclists and dog owners. Friendly to all. We will definitely be back.
Family night My sister in law and myself stayed in the Albion suite. Beautiful large family suite. Absolutely love this hotel, I have stayed several times, and will continue to stay here whenever possible. Breakfast cooked to order was delicious, I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Lovely Old Hotel Lovely overnight stay at the Kirkstyle Hotel traditional room with all mod cons needed. The hotel is Georgian style with a small courtyard for sunny days. Receptionist was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast became unavailable due to the chef being unwell and this was explained to us and dealt with professionally with a part refund being given. We traveled with our small dog who was welcomed to the room with a blanket, bowl and treats. No hotel parking but we found a free long stay car park located just behind the hotel and next to a handy co op supermarket. Biggar itself is so charming don’t miss The Braes park a short walk from the hotel, dinner and drinks at the Crown Inn across the road were amazing!
Really good Lovely little place. Very clean and friendly. Rooms nice. It has a good breakfast. It's all you could want from a small town stop over. Would definitely recommend. We arrived late and they were happy to stay and welcome us. No fuss. Its little touches like this that make a place.

Immaculate and friendly! My husband and I stayed one night to attend a nearby wedding, hotel was easy to find and we parked across road. We were delighted that our room was ready early for us so we could get changed and head to wedding venue in plenty of time. Our room was very clean, spacious and quiet with everything we needed, large comfortable bed, mini fridge, etc. Taxi service to and from venue was recommended by hotel and was excellent. All staff we met were extremely pleasant, friendly and helpful. Our breakfast ordered in advance was tasty and service was excellent! All COVID guidelines were well practised and we felt very comfortable. We would highly recommend this hotel!
Great Hotel Great Hotel to stay in, very friendly staff, delicious breakfast clean and well appointed rooms. Only negative bad Wifi kept coking out and Vodafone signal 1 bar but that’s not the hotel’s fault. Parking adequate across the road

Efficient and friendly We stayed for one night to break the journey from Mull to Shropshire. Phone booking was very efficient (though a booking fee of £1 seems to have been charged) and evening arrival and reception friendly and efficient. Prior booking of breakfast during reception worked well. Room - with garden view - very pleasant and comfortable with good shower and plenty of hot water. The Crown Inn in the square was most welcoming for a late tapas meal with well kept beer. (Next time we will tell them we were staying at the Kirkstyle - now gather this may have led to a 10% reduction on the bill!) Breakfast at the Kirkstyle was excellent and the pre ordering worked well. Small details such as modifying the strength of the coffee, providing a jug of hot water and insistence on Covid-19 distancing in the breakfast room were appreciated. The sort of informal, but well organised hotel it is pleasant to stay in.

Stayed 26th and 27th dec 2022. Amazing service from start to finish, courtesy call a week before to ask our approx arrival time. Then text from duty manager Cathy the day of our arrival to say that they had snow but the roads were clear...Nice touch. Fantastic accommodating breakfast team on both days..the eggs benedict(with spinach) was amazing..great chefs. Thank you all. Would stay again and highly recommend
