We booked to get married here just me and my hubby to be. We arrived and were welcomed by reception, we were directed to our room, unpacked and then made our way to the bar for some food.

We've used this picturesque hotel as a central meeting place with friends for the last four years and enjoyed great times in the warmth of the welcoming bar area. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable, and Gretna Shopping Centre just down the road is perfect for our Christmas shopping. The food is scrumptious and the staff very friendly and... More

Thank you for taking the time to post such a positive review. It is always good to hear from "non-wedding" guests of ours and the fact you come back repeatedly is the best endorsement you can possibly give us. I look forward to welcoming you back to The Mill Forge. Graham Smith - General Manager More

we just left the hotel after 2 fantastic days there getting married. The staff were really attentive and helpful, the food was great quality and the bridal suite we were in was fantastic. It all went to make our special day extra special.

My husband and I had the misfortune to be invited to a wedding here. We was expecting a quite grand affair. But what we encountered was a Scottish theme on Las Vegas. Cheap, tacky, and very over priced. I can understand the romantic reasoning for wishing to get married at Gretna Green, or in this case a ripped off version,... More

I have to say that I'm a more than a little taken aback by this review. While I accept that we may not be to everybody's taste, I find your comments to be overly critical as we have many many customers who love what we offer. The personal attack you have made on me before criticising the whole of the... More

Thank you for sharing your opinions of The Mill Forge. I shall certainly take your comments on board when we begin our annual maintenance program. I am pleased you enjoyed our meals and while £6 may seem expensive for a vodka and coke it is actually the price of a double measure. Best regards Graham Smith - General Manager More
