Luxury, Boutique Hotel in Cumnock, East Ayrshire | Dumfries Arms Hotel

Welcome to Dumfries Arms Hotel

Covid 19 Update from The Dumfries Arms. 

 Further to the Government announcement today that we have moved into level 4, we as a team have taken the difficult decision to close the Hotel from Friday 20th November at 6pm until the New Year.

With the next review being the 11th of December and the possibility of our level 4 status being extended beyond this date, we feel it is necessary to cancel our Christmas celebrations now to allow our guests to make their own arrangements in these strange times.
We are very grateful for everyone's support since we reopened in July, it has been lovely to see you all.
We will keep you all posted on a re-opening date for early next year... and we hope very much this will be our last reopening!
From everyone at The DA- Stay safe, have a lovely Christmas and we will see you all again in the new year.


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, our popular restaurant and a relaxed lounge bar with our private dining room for those special occasions.

Whatever your reason, come and say hello.
