We stayed at this hotel as we were getting in The Old Blacksmith's Shop in Gretna Green in July 2016. The hotel was lovely, in a good location very close to our wedding venue. The rooms were very spacious and very nice. The food was a little expensive but the portions were good and the food well prepared and tasty.... More

Came here for a meal after our wedding - (Just the 2 of us!) We had a steak which just melted in the mouth. Both the steaks were cooked just as we like them. I had a crumble and my partner had a creme brulee for dessert. Beautiful, freshly cooked meal. Would recommend to anyone in the area.

This is a quality hotel. Well appointed rooms, good sound proofing, no road noise from M74, plenty of facilities and a good restaurant. Staff are local, very helpful and cheery. A good place to stay. Breakfast was a bit basic but acceptable. Restaurant food was very good. Good value for money.

We arrived on 13th July for our wedding. We booked the Penthouse. We had no idea what to expect but we were not disappointed....the room was fabulous and the hot tub a highlight. Views were amazing from the balcony. Wedding planners were so organised and really helpful. Food was delicious and we really enjoyed our wedding meal. Can't thank everyone... More

Lovely hotel in a quiet location just opposite the famous Blacksmiths Shop. Well appointed rooms with modern decor. Bathroom was a bit tired but not enough to put us off. Public rooms are very nice. Had dinner and breakfast there and was very good. Staff very helpful and friendly and hotel only 2 mins from Outlet Village.

I'm not one for writing reviews but quite often find myself reading them especially the negative ones (some of them ridiculous to be honest) This was most definitely the case after we had booked our wedding at this venue without having previously visited. We had 50 people travelling from all corners of the globe and didn't want the hotel to... More

Loved the Ash Suite which my husband booked for my 60th birthday.The bed was so comfortable and the bathroom huge with its double shower, The staff are so friendly and polite and we both love this hotel.Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff and they make you feel so special. Also enjoyed seeing the wedding parties.
