The Black Bull can be found located in the town of Moffat, which is in the Dumfries and Galloway region of Scotland. Moffat is a beautiful town in the Southern Uplands and is surrounded by beautiful hills and areas of natural beauty. It is bordered by Edinburgh, Glasgow and Carlisle, making it a fantastic location to visit rural Scotland with great links to some of the major cities.

The Black Bull is a boutique hotel, as well as a bar and restaurant. With 15 rooms in total, each being individually designed and styled, you’ll find plenty of Celtic charm here and nods to its heritage. The building itself dates back to the 16th century and has been brought bang up to date with all the necessary modern touches that make for a very comfortable stay indeed.

When we arrived, we were greeted warmly by a member of the team, were checked-in, and shown to our room. During our stay, we were residing in The Black Bull’s Junior Suite, which was an absolute joy. The colour palette of the room was neutral and relaxing with a an abundance of greys and whites offset by welcomed hints of light blue from the headboard, curtains and soft furnishings.

“You simply cannot stay here without visiting the restaurant; it is a must.”

The room itself was of ample size and offered a Hypnos bed, in which we enjoyed a wonderfully comfortable nights’ sleep. The room offers a large sofa at the end of the bed which is rather difficult to leave, as well as a dressing table and mirror, a flat screen television and tea and coffee making facilities.

The bathroom was also plenty spacious, and offered a stylish oval free-standing bathtub as well as a separate walk-in shower. The shower has a rain head, and was most powerful and invigorating. The bath was plenty deep and made for a good excuse to try out the wonderfully soft bathrobes that came provided. The bathroom was exceptionally immaculate and in pristine condition.

We were very pleased indeed with our room, however we were excited to check out the rest of The Black Bull and the surrounding area. Certainly one of the main highlights of this hotel is its restaurant, which was pretty busy throughout our stay. The menu boasts a selection of both traditional and more contemporary dishes, and the wine list is equally as impressive. You simply cannot stay here without visiting the restaurant; it is a must do. The bar is also a great space, with log fires and cosy corners perfect for curling up with a good whiskey. The staff also really know their stuff, so it’s worth asking for a recommendation or two.

Overall we had a fabulous stay at The Black Bull and would highly recommend it to anyone keen to check out the outstanding beauty of the area and have an excellent stay. We cannot fault our experience, and cannot wait to return.
