When you want somewhere N of Preston on way to Scotland and near M6, M74 this was cheaper (£39 online) than Premier Inn, Travel Lodge places, and had all the necessary facilities, and quiet comfortable sleep. Good breakfast

We travelled south towards England on a Thursday, returning on the following Tuesday to our home on the Cowal Peninsula, staying on both occasions at the Solway Lodge in Gretna. Finding somewhere reasonable is a frequent problem when frequently commuting between the Highlands of Scotland and the Midlands of England. We paid just £39.00 for a double room on a... More

Very good clean basic accommodation. Bedrooms were clean and bed comfortable. Evening meal and breakfast were excellent. All staff very friendly and welcoming. Hotel location great for access to the nearby retail outlet centre which is worth a visit.

We found this represented very reasonable value for money. Everything is quite basic but within that category, the rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, the staff friendly (with the notably exception of our greeting when we arrived on Sunday evening, which would have benefitted greatly from a smile) and the food well cooked.
