Rooms at the back were very basic. Bathroom was fine. Light didn't work. Poor TV reception. No phone. Internet only in hotel not in rooms so accessing it was problematic out if opening times. Service and food were very good in hotel part. Waitresses and other staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was well done.

Wow, and wow again, I just cannot say enough about this establishment, they treated our small wedding party extremely well, the food was absolutely fantastic, the service was out of this world, from start to finish we were treated like kings! I have no connection with the Solway Lodge at all, I'm not getting paid for this review, but I... More

Lovely staff, rooms nice and clean. Excellent meal. We stayed the night before our wedding and staff were very helpful after our wedding. The food is excellent and staff were more than lovely. I would highly recommend this hotel.

My partner and I have visited this hotel twice recently as it proved a convenient stopping place on a long journey from England to the North of Scotland. This comfortable and reasonably priced hotel is situated close to the M74 arterial route to Scotland. We found the rooms clean, comfortable and well appointed. The staff were friendly and most helpful.... More

Visited twice recently for some pub grub and Hadoop meal on both occasions. Menu has plenty to offer with the added bonus of smaller portions at a lower price - this is good if you decide you can mange three courses- as full size portion is rather large. The bar, although pretty busy with people eating meals, lacks atmosphere and... More

This hotel is only a 10 minute walk from the Gretna Gateway shopping centre, so very handy for lunch. The food is very good, traditional steak pie, like your Granny would make. Good choice on the menu & decent portions. Friendly & efficient staff, serving lots of locals, which is always a good sign. (The décor is old fashioned, but... More
