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

We were made very welcome and the menu is really varied with lots of meals on offer to suit all tastes. We all had... More

This Hotel was awful. Nothing like the photos in or out as they post. It is very old and dated and not at all well cared for inside or outside. The double room we got was so small we wouldn't have been able to take in our cases. The room was so heavily sprayed with chemicals I nearly choked. Had... More
