Wow what a place and the most beautiful welcome set the tone for the rest of our overnight stay. Joseph and Mary have plenty experience in looking after their guests and boy did it show. The hotel is being refurbished and work is well underway. We stayed in one of the rooms that had been completed and what a wonderful... More

This hotel is a labour of love by the family who own it and a great place to stay. We stayed for the night en route back home and it's such a welcoming and friendly place. Our room was recently refurbished, it was comfortable and nicely finished. We had our meal in the bar which was excellent and good value,... More

We were met by a warm welcome and shown to a lovely room, recently refurbished. A home cooked meal of vegetarian haggis & neeps, washed down with some New Zealand cider, my partner opted for steak & ale pie accompanied by a local beer. The log fired was well stoked. The locals were friendly and in the morning we arose... More

I first stayed here around 8 years ago, when large parts of the building were being renovated by the present owners, and must have been one of the first guests. I returned this year to find that the building is now lovingly restored, and the welcome is just as warm and friendly as when it first opened. We arrived late,... More

We have stayed at this hotel on many occasions now and would recommend it to anyone! The renovations are coming on and we notice a difference each time we go there. The food is good and Mary's breakfasts are excellent!! Helen and Steve (the owners son) are very friendly and helpful....Oh! I forgot to mention Joe - he's there too!... More

Stayed at hotel as niece getting married at Gretna green. Hotel small and cosy, staff couldn't be more helpful and food lovely. A fire was lit in the small bar where we spend most of our stay just chatting. Breakfast was very good and plenty of it. Would go back to see hotel completely finished as renovation not quite finished.

We chose this hotel to look after my family for a couple of nights for the duration of our wedding and I am so glad we did. My family took every room in the hotel and were so well looked after they all want to go back. Joe and Mary were amazing with my family and my children loved them.... More

We stopped here for three nights between Christmas and New Year. Couldn't believe how friendly the locals in the bar were and how welcoming the hosts are. Joe in particular is a larger than life character who makes you feel like you are friends rather than paying guests! As noted in earlier comments the hotel is being renovated and the... More

When I stay in a hotel I look for a warm welcome, a comfortable room, good food and a decent bar and at the Ecclefechan hotel we found all this and more. Joe and Mary are charming hosts who make you feel like welcome guests rather than just paying customers. The hotel is an ongoing project / labour of love... More
