Stayed overnight on bb on Sunday 28th April as a break in the journey home
The Hotel is excellent and staff are very friendly We had dinner as well as the booked breakfast the following morning and the food was plentiful and nice The room we were allocated was huge and |I will try and get this room again This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and I would not go anywhere else now. It will be a stop off every time we return from visiting family in the south Highly recommended

Stayed here for one night and to be honest would not stay again, Needs total renovation to the rooms and bathrooms. Staff lovely could not fault them and the food was not to bad either. The beds were very uncomfortable did not look as if they had been made they were just throwing together.

Room Tip: Okay if its a quick stop but dont expect from the look on the outside that the inside meets the same...

My husband and I stayed here for one night to break up our journey to Edinburgh. The hotel was conveiniently situated off the motorway and easy to find. The few staff were very welcoming and contientious. We had booked a double room but were given a family room that was enormous, plenty of space to move around. The room was warm,clean and comfortable although dated. We had our evening meal which was hot and well presented.
Breakfast was good value for money, food was hot and plentiful. Overall, if you want an easy stop off during your journey this is definitely not the worst place to do it. Although dated ,it was pleasant enough to spend the night and the staff are very accommodating. For the price, we think we had good value and would stay again if the need arose. Having stayed in Gretna before and seen some of the other places it is definitely not the worst.
