We stayed 1 night on the DB&B tarif. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff extremely friendly and helpful but the choice for food on the DB&B basis was very limited, I asked if I could mix and match from the bar food menu and was told no, so it was a choice of fish, pasta, or chicken. The meals were presented well but everything seemed to be made for a mass catering event, weddings etc (I suppose should have expected this in Gretna)
The hotel was surrounded with trees and I had noticed all the bird lime splattered on the car park when we arrived so I parked round the back but in the morning every single car was covered in it.
This may seem a small inconvenience to some people but we had made the journey in a soft top convertible and it involved a lot of cleaning to avoid lasting damage.
If you stay here and plan to have wedding photos taken in the gardens, wear a hat!
