Stayed here for our 40th anniversary. Room was spotless and food was great. A beautiful hotel set in beautiful surroundings, gardens are stunning as is the hotel. Staff extremely friendly and nothing is a problem. This hotel is a hidden gem. Will Definitely be back.

We have just returned from our Wedding At The Mill and to say it was PERFECT is a understatement! Prior to arriving we hadn't visited as we booked online. When we arrived we were amazed, this really is a absolutely beautiful private and intimate venue in stunning surroundings. I would highly recommend this venue, the staff are amazing and the... More

We have just returned from our wedding at the Mill Forge on the 30 March. We could not fault it in any way. The room was absolutely stunning (no. 30) included a 4 poster bed and jet bath. There were chocolates and sparkly wine in the room on our arrival and the wine was replenished the following day. All of... More

I went up for my brothers wedding. It was all wonderful apart from a few hiccups. Tv was useless. Only had patchy freeview as the signal was so bad. No WiFi in the rooms. At all. A range extender would solve this problem. The heating broke. It was so hot in that room I think I lost weight just sleeping... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. Obviously I am disappointed with some of your comments. Since your stay in October we have addressed some of the issues, namely the decor in the rooms, the pillows and the square sausage. We are currently looking at extending the WiFi so it is available in all rooms. Whatever the issues... More

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
