My husband and I stopped here for just one night, however Brenda and Roy were very attentive and made sure that we had all we needed. There was a choice of rooms, all of which were spacious and spotless. Breakfast was included in the price of the room, and the choice of what you could have was the best I... More

Stopped there for the weekend (18/7/14-19/7/14) and couldn't be happier with the service. Beautiful room and lovely breakfast. The staff were so lovely and upgraded us to the cottage suite free of charge. Would definitely recommend this guest house to friends and stay again if we're ever back in the area. Was a lovely addition to a lovely weekend!

Little touches like the Champagne and Chocolate added to the warmth. Rooms were an excellent size and clean with strong showers ! Breakfast was excellent and Roy and Brenda provided a... More

We booked the king size room for nostalgia as we had stayed here the night before we were married. On arrival there was initially a mix up with the date i had booked to stay, whether it was an error on my part or not the owner could not have made us feel more welcome and even provided us with...

I booked the luxury room containing a four poster bed, large bathroom containing a Jacuzzi bath complete with tv to accompany it. First impressions of the place is it is just a large house but inside it is well presented. It's very clean, tidy and... More

We stayed here for two nights for our Wedding and were very disappointed! Reading some of there reviews I think there must be two Anvil Hotels in Gretna! The welcome was half hearted. We had asked if we wanted a full Scottish breakfast in the morning and when we said no to Haggis and Black pudding we got a sarcastic... More
