Stayed for the night of my granddaughters wedding. I was in the outside room 6. Bed was quite comfortable the room was very clean and the shower was really good. The wedding buffet was very tasty and, apart from cold mushrooms, the breakfast was very nice.
Two slight niggles, the WiFi did not work other than the bar area, and I could not get the TV to work at all.

After a long drive we pulled into The Solway Lodge around four thirty in the afternoon and asked for the menu and were told that it would be five thirty before we could have our meal. It appears to me that in Scotland in 2013 things haven't changed much over the years as Mr McDonald's still seems to be one of the places the customer can eat when they want.

perfectly placed for ease of reaching the motorway. Good, clean accommodation along with ample parking. Wi-fi was only accessible in the bar area so might be best that it is marketed as such rather than suggesting it is available in bedrooms as well. Breakfast was brilliant as free range eggs on the menu. Ticked pretty much all my boxes for an overnight stay.

A very pleasant stay for a friend’s wedding. Chose to stay for two nights and glad we did. Hotel is nice; rooms nicely decorated with ample facilities for a short break. The staff are all very welcoming and friendly; nothing is too much trouble. They are all very busy and go about their duties with a smile on their faces. We dined in the Restaurant on the first night and the food was of a very high standard and there was plenty of choice. Breakfast is good although no yoghurts or fruit on offer which is a shame and it is a very early finish being served from 7.30 am until 9.00 am!! The staff made sure that the Wedding Reception was perfect for our friends’ special day. We found Gretna a lovely little place, full of history and the glorious weather was a bonus during our stay. We would stay at Solway Lodge again.

We held our wedding reception at this wonderful friendly hotel on the 20th June, most of our 50 guests also stayed here and all were very happy with their rooms, we cannot thank the staff enough for all their help towards making our day as special as it could be, the service was excellent we were really looked after, the room was beautifully decorated and the food was second to none with menu choices to suit everyone, compliments from all my guests! we also booked a year in advance and visited on 2or 3 occasions to discuss details with Iain and Nicky and I would like again to say a very big thank you to them both for their help and patience! Nothing was too much trouble and if we had to do it all again we wouldn't change a thing! Mark & Sue Johnson

Stayed at the solway Lodge for 4nights for our wedding the staff were absolutely fantastic, they could not do enough for us, on the day of my wedding breakfast was brought up to me which was lovely. We were looked after extremely well right from 7.45 to 00.00, the food was outstanding all of our guests commented on how good the food was and how friendly and helpful all of the staff were. Fiona was lovely my husband and I can not praise Fiona enough for making our day so special.

I would recommend the solway lodge to anyone who is in the Gretna area, we shall be back for our wedding anniversary next year and to see everyone again.
