Read previous reviews and was not dissapointed. Our party of 7 arrived late for lunch booking and were not turned back. Every thing ordered arrived piping hot and everyone said they enjoyed their meal. Staff were courteous and helpful and a credit to the hotel. Our first visit but not the last

Stayed last night with my Mam & sisters for a Christmas shoppin weekend in Carlisle & the Gretna Gateway. We had 2 twin rooms which were immaculate & nice & warm. Evening meal in the hotel was delicious - I highly recommend the Balmoral Chicken & Hunters chicken. Slept like a log despite the torrential rain outside. Breakfast also delicious.... More

Needed a clean bed for the night, a good shower,some dinner and a cooked breakfast, all my needs were met. Very good value with friendly hosts. Situated very close to the Gretna outlet village, so close it's just a short walk down the road.

We stayed for 2 nights on our way further north with our grandson and dog. Very comfortable and clean en suite room in the 'annex'. Nice bar area where we could connect to wifi, and helpful staff. Large car park. Excellent value for money, and would definately recommend.
