Stayed 2 nights Fri & Sat April 2014. Steve and Cathy looked after Karon and I from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The B&B is immaculate throughout, the smaller details such as complimentary tea, coffee and fresh towels, replenished daily. Of course the breakfast (with the food of the gods 'haggis') just the best. No gripes... More

But that is the only thing that is plain. We just stayed one night on our way up to Scotland. Catherine and Stephen were quite friendly and helpful with everything. The room... More

Like many others we were in Gretna for a wedding and chose this B&B after reading the positive reports on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. Our room was spotless and little extra touches were provided such as little mints on the tea tray. As others have said, the bed was very comfortable. I rarely sleep well when away from... More

Good hospitality, excellent food, very clean. Only minor irritation was that the bed was too soft for our taste. Location very convenient for the nearby Gretna Outlets and for access to roads for onward travel.

Alexander House is really comfortable. Exceptionally clean with delicious breakfasts. Our bed was so comfortable. The best we have had on a month long tour! Catherine and Stephen run one of the best. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone.
