I've been to every hotel in Gretna for food and I thought I'd try the Gables for food, for my birthday. When we were seated we were given a menu and we were asked if we would like any drinks (which was great) when we received our drinks (Only three of us were drinking alcohol as the others were not...

We spent 2 nights here and had a great stay. The staff are so friendly & helpful you really feel valued as a customer. The room was spotless, a little smaller than we are used to, but it had everything you needed. The food is excellent we ate twice in the bar & once in the restaurant. Great choice for... More

My husband and I just stayed and had our wedding reception at the gables. From the moment we arrived we couldn't have asked for more helpful staff. The hotel is comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. The wedding breakfast was amazing, from the table lay out, table service to the perfect food. Special thanks to Louise and James for everything they... More

We spent two nights here for our wedding, and couldn't fault anything at all. The staff were so friendly and helpful, and couldn't do enough for us! Nice relaxed atmosphere and an enjoyable stay. Would recommend 100%.

but I found the place to be a bit like Mars - little discernible atmosphere. Previous stays had been livelier, given the buzz about the place that those who had, or were about to get married imparted. Perhaps the fact that we stayed on a Sunday meant that there were no such guests staying, hence the more sombre atmosphere All... More

Myself and some family went to the gables for a meal. 4 of us ordered steak...and it was very tough, particularly mine, so much so i could barely cut it nevermind eat it. The waiting staff said they would pass it on to the chef...im still waiting for any feedback from him. A mojito cocktail, which was on the menu,... More
