I was seduced into booking this hotel by the photos on the web diet, unfortunately the photos are very very old. The hotel is very tired and needs some money spent on it and giving a proper facelift. Very disappointed. On the good side the staff were friendly and it was a decent breakfast.

We stayed at the Garden House Hotel whilst cycling LE-JOG and it was very well located en-route. They stored our bikes for us without a problem and the evening meal and breakfast was very good, but the mattress on the bed was way past its' use-by date and was very uncomfortable. Our friend's mattress in another room was equally bad.... More

Stayed here over night and was glad it was only for the one night. The hotel rooms were in need of a good clean and a fresh covering of paint due to the marks over the walls. My husband picked up a towel from the rusty radiator in the bathroom, the towel was thread bare. I refused to remove my... More

Stayed for 3 nights. The hotel was easy to find - not far from the M6 and over the road from the Gretna Gateway shopping centre. We were there for a family wedding, so we saw various rooms and all were big rooms for the money. Beds were nice and comfy. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, a... More

Well where do I start, stayed here for 2 nights with a wedding party and loved it. Staff were very helpful and for a budget hotel I had no problems whatsoever. Our room was massive with 2 double beds and a 3 piece suite with a fairly large fully functional bathroom with shower and jacuzzi bath. Breakfast was good with... More

Yes this hotel needs updating but you know what we had a double bed each, clean sheets, clean towels and a well cooked breakfast - all for £50. The Ritz it most certainly isnt but staff were helpful, especially when we forgot our hairdryer!! Good value for money for an overnight stay.

Dear Morag1960. Thank you for your Review, it was nice to read. The hotel would benefit a refurbishment, especially some of the furniture in the rooms. We will look into replacing the chair which you mention. Hope you stay with us again if your in the area. Kind Regards, Garden House Hotel More
