Booked as a sudden decision to break the journey from the Midlands to Scotland, because of anticipated difficult weather/driving conditions, The Gables hotel provided more than we had anticipated for the very reasonable cost. Room, service, evening meal in the lounge bar and the splendid full Scottish breakfast all made us feel our holiday had started a day early, rather... More

Stayed one night in second week of January on our way to Perthshire. After hours of driving in the dark along the M6 we pulled into this apparently small elegant looking hotel which has plenty of parking. Inside was like walking into "The Tardis" with modern, medium sized, quiet, clean and very comfortable rooms. The restaurant rooms are very well... More

Stopped at the Gables Hotel in Gretna for one night as a business stop over. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Hotel and room were very clean and comfortable. Food was prepared with consideration and care. Breakfast was included and you couldn't have asked for better quality or choice. Overall, spot on and great value for money. I'd stop there again...

Stayed for a night last week and it was quiet, warm and cosy. The staff were all very friendly and the food was excellent. Clean and comfortable rooms. Free WiFi and plenty of parking so it was a good base on my trip up north.
