We booked into the guest house for our Pearl anniversary, and was blown away by how lovely it was. We had the deluxe room and was not disappointed. It had the four poster bed and jacuzzi bath as stated on the web site. The linen was beautiful, as was the room. In our room was a bottle of wine and... More

We stayed one night over the weekend and not entirely sure what to make of it, but erred on the positive. We turned up a little earlier than the stated time, but no one was about (although the door was unlocked) eventually the guy turned up 15 minutes after check-in time, but sat in his car for 5 minutes before...

Really nice place. hosts were friendly & couldn't do enough for us. We didn't go for the luxurious room just an ordinary homely one. Breakfast was delicious good produce & cooked to perfection. Hosts very attentive & asked if we needed any more etc! Would definitely recommend to friends & family.. would stay here again..

Really enjoyed our recent stay with Brenda and Roy who are really nice people. Great value for money, location, parking, breakfast... You get my meaning. I would recommend this place to anyone. Not a faceless chain hotel but a homely abode with real people.

Being an older couple who have been together for many years, we wanted a quiet, romantic wedding and we were not disappointed when we chose Anvil View for our base. The location is great, just a short walk over the road to our wedding venue at The Original Blacksmith's shop. We stayed in luxurious Room one with a four poster... More

Unfortunately we only stayed for 1 night here, we stayed in the deluxe room with the jacuzzi bath. Everything was clean & comfortable, hosts are lovely, friendly & helpful. It's perfectly situated for any Gretna venue, breakfast was plentiful & tasty with various options.

Booked as a stop over on way to relatives in Scotland. Very friendly welcome from the owners. We had room 3 and was more than pleased with the room. Very clean,comfortable and reasonably priced. Breakfast was fantastic and well cooked.

We only stayed one night on our way home from watching England beat Scotland. Room was well equipped and breakfast was good. Hosts were very friendly and went above and beyond by changing my Scottish notes for English ones as they are useless where I live.
