The wedding planners help as much or as little as you like, its up to you. I had a definate plan... More

We had our wedding here on New years Eve, from start to finish the whole experience was amazing and exceptionally outstanding. The staff could not have been more helpful, in particular I want to mention the younger members of staff who were so professional and a credit to the management! The Bridal Suite was fantastic, so clean and so big,... More

We got married at the mill on Dec 11th. On arrival I was a bit surprised we were as far from Gretna as we were. I thought it would be within walking distance but it's a couple of Mile drive with not a lot to do near the hotel. This could be just that I didn't research well enough! However... More

We were invited to a wedding here and probably wouldn't return. The rooms were lovely and warm and have exactly what you need for an overnight stay. A little pricey at £95 with no more to offer than an £80 stay in a travelodge. But never the less a comfortable stay. For weddings they could do with a host to... More

We booked this at short notice as going south on business. The room was fab. It was in a building that had the appearance of a row of cottages. We had our own front door with parking. On entering there was a hall with 2 doors. One led to the shower room and the other to the bedroom which was... More
