Came here for tea with a group of friends and wasn't exactly blown away. Defiantly improved, nice seating area but rather small menu and rather pricey. Someone for example had Cumberland sausage for about £10 and it literally just had a load of mash potatoes and a curled sausage on top. No veg at all which would have made a... More

Walked into what had been a familiar, very tired looking hotel last evening to meet a friend for dinner. The transformation as you enter is stunning. New owners have refurbished this hotel and brought it bang up to 2015 standards. My friend was staying there on business and she remarked that she would certainly stay there again and it compares...

Hotel just been refurbished will be nice when finished, breakfast a bit disappointing no choice, the odd cereals a small amount of fruit a cooked full English / Scottish. Our toast was brought as soon as we sat down, lovely golden brown but when turned every peace was black.

Hotel closed when we arrived trf to Smiths where we were given a room overlooking motorway!! Our Ruby anniversary totally ruined!!!!!! Had stayed in Smiths last year and we wanted a change. Did have a good meal in restaurant. We should not have even been allowed to book into a hotel which was going to be closed for refurbishment!!!!

When we arrived at the hotel we were directed to reception which was table in the corridor as reception was under construction. The staff were very welcoming and offered to help us with our luggage even though... More

I, like so many others, chose to 'elope' to Gretna Green for my wedding. I stayed the night here with a few close friends and it was very pleasant. They were lovely to us and so welcoming. We had dinner and hung about in the comfy chairs in the bar drinking champagne. It was a really nice way to spend... More

We stayed here recently whilst visiting friends and what a treat. The hotel is ideally located, the reception is welcoming, the room was superb and a peaceful sleep was had. We booked a 4 poster bed room and it was huge with a great view. The following morning we had a good breakfast to send us on our way. Will... More
