First impressions were good; the friendly receptionist unhesitatingly changed our room from one with just a shower to one with a bath; and the bar staff when we went for an afternoon G&T were equally friendly. However, the TV in the new room was unusable - presumably because of poor signal strength in that locality, an active (i.e. amplified) indoor... More

My bath had brown sludge running out of the taps. I was told a plumber had been working in the room! The single bed had a 13tog double quilt on it in the summer. The carpet was stained. The lock didn't work properly. Couldn't get a 2nd cup of coffee at breakfast as no staff in sight. No staff when... More

Friendly and welcoming staff. Good non greasy cooked breakfast. Room small but nicely decorated. Shower didn't work properly, shower door was broken and bathroom door didn't shut. Evening meal was nice but basic. Thought it was expensive for what you got, and no offer of discount or refund for the problems with the bathroom. We were told that the room... More

Booked a family room which was described as having 1 double and 2 single beds.However, on arrival were given keys to a dingy chalet type room in a separate building at the back of the hotel with 1 double and bunk beds squeezed in. The paint was yellowing,... More

A few of us stayed here for my wedding, the staff were brilliant and could not do enough to help, there is such a warm and friendly welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Excellent food, and they also own the pub on the corner and the food there too was superb.

Just returned from a three night stay at the Solway Lodge which we used as a base for my stepdaughters wedding at the Gretna Green Blacksmiths Shop, and I have just one complaint. This was that I couldn't find fault with a single thing. And I am very well known for doing just that! I have stayed at many hotels... More
