About the hotel

A late Victorian mansion, Somerton House Hotel bears the distinctive red sandstone of many of the buildings within the town of Lockerbie. It has many unique features, none more so than the near extinct New Zealand Kauri timber that is generously utilised throughout. The design itself was by Alexander "Greek" Thomson and shows off his style and panache majestically. There are also links back to Scottish explorer David Livingstone with the apply named Lions, Stanley and Livingstone who guard the entrance.

Our location just off the M6/M74 corridor and main West coast rail-line is perfect for business people and ideal for tourists wanting to explore the borders area.

The hotel boasts free parking, a well stocked whisky bar, mature gardens and restaurant.

Within the restaurant a full Scottish breakfast is served in the morning. In the evening there is also an extensive a la carte menu which features the best locally produced steaks.  You can view our wine list here.

All 14 rooms are elegantly furnished with en suite facilities, full free Wi-Fi coverage, LCD Smart TV's (to let you catch up on your missed favourites) and work desks.

With easy access to the surrounding countryside, Somerton House Hotel is a 40-minute drive from the magnificent Grey Mare’s Tail Waterfall and a 4-minute drive to Lockerbie Golf Club. With only a 15-minute drive to the popular Dalton Pottery Art Café, guests can decorate their own ceramics.
