Lovely staff...nice building. Rooms small and cosy but house keeping could be better. Carpets dirty round the edges. Grouting needs attention and curtain hanging off the track oh and shaver light not working. The bar snacks menu needs simpler options. Drinks priced fairly compared to another bar locally. This could be the best small independent hotel in Gretna ...needs a... More

Lovely place to stay in Gretna Green (having seen some other places it looks like one of the best). Bed fabulously comfy and friendly staff. We also ate in the bar/bistro because the restaurant had a function going on (altho there was a table available) and the Roast Venison with haggis and neeps that we had there was delicious. Breakfast... More

Had one night here. 17th August 2014. Staff very helpful. Had nice clean room only downside tiles in bathroom could have done to be regrouted. Had a very nice dinner on Sunday night. Also had very good full breakfast. If in this area would use this hotel again. George Stewart

Dear George, thank you for the review. Our tiles do get a lot of water poured on them on a daily basis, as you can image. It is a constant challenge to maintain them, especially when our rooms are being used daily. They are high up on our list of regular jobs to be done. So pleased that you found... More

We live in Gretna and have long thought that there was no where in town for a bar meal..... happily we have found The Gables!! Lovely atmosphere in both the bar and restaurant (although music being played in the restaurant would help). Great food! Good wine!
