We stayed for 1 night whilst visiting Gretna. The location was excellent and very close to all attractions. The room was very small but had everything you required. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was all cooked well.

Arrived later than expected after a harrowing journey from Hayling Island. We received a warm welcome when we finally arrived, before hurrying down to the local hostelry for a bite to eat. The room, although small, was very clean and the bed comfortable. The breakfast was superb - would recommend the smoked salmon and scrambled egg! We used Alexander House... More

Arrived mid-evening and got helped with parking my motorbike before being shown to a pre-booked, comfortable double room. After a very good nights sleep, breakfast was served in a cosy, wee dining room with cereal and delicious cooked breakfast available. A reasonable rate for an excellent overnight stay with single occupancy rates available. I would definitely recommend this B&B to... More

Friendly, clean and excellent. Really good breakfast. Looked after a group of tired cyclists well, even cleaned our kit. When we arrived they came to the door with a bottle of water each which was life saving. Just a great place.

I could not fault this hotel at all, spotlessly clean, excellent breakfast, great hosts, good location, everything you could want for a short break, very handy for Gretna gateway outlet village. Cath recommended where to eat/drink which was very helpful. Would go again without hesitation.

This is a fantastic b&b. Cath and Steve are perfect hosts. The weather was gorgeous and sat in their immaculate gardens with cups of coffee. The breakfast was everything you needed to start you on your day and very well cooked. We had the kingsize bedroom which was a good size. Bathroom small but adequate. Lots of hot water and... More

We stayed here for our first night on a tour of Scotland after renewing our wedding vows and what a wonderful experience. Spotlessly clean, delightfully decorated and run by a couple that obviously enjoy what they do, it's immaculate honestly. The owners are friendly and helpful. What a great start to our trip - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or... More

Stayed here overnight with my husband. It was lovely. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable, the hosts were friendly and the breakfast was fine. There were restaurants and pubs near by, and it was just off the motorway. A lovely little gem of a find. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.
