Just got married at the mill forge and stayed at the hotel. We had the bridal suite ( room 29) which was gorgeous and friends had various other rooms, all of which were clean, warm and very nicely appointed. Breakfast both mornings was more than enough and the wedding meal was superb. Staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough... More

Lovely time at the hotel, staff very polite and extremely helpful, giving me keys to a dressing room ( with hairdryer, ironing board, iron, settee, huge mirror, full shower facility etc) as we had arrived so early ( breakfast time) and our room was ready by 11.30. The gardens are incredibly well tended for photo opportunities. The room was very... More

Unfortunately I did not visit the location to stay in the hotel. I visited the bar and restaurant as a celebration of our friends wedding in the Smithy Cottages a little further into Gretna . The location is truly magnificent and was made even better by some bizarre weather on the day,but I believe it would be so in any... More

I've just got back from The Mill Forge's Wedding Fayre, and I wish I'd visited it when I was getting married. It was a very relaxed and comfortable event in a stunning venue, and at no point at all was there any pressure on any of the couples-to-be from anyone. My friend had never visited Scotland before, but she fell... More

What a wonderful idyllic place, we stayed here for 2 nights and married on the 3rd February 2015. What a perfect day made all the more better by the wonderful staff, and beautiful bridal suite (room 29). Ours was an intimate wedding just the bride and groom, but the staff made us feel very special. From the spectacular bridal room... More

We were able to check in after 11.30 which was amazing as we had chance to get ready without rushing. The forge is a beautiful venue for intimate and larger weddings alike. Even... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. While it is always enjoyable to read such words as "fantastic", I'm sorry you felt the beds weren't as comfortable as they might be. I will look at this at the first opportunity. Regards Graham Smith - General Manager More
