Reviewed May 7, 2014

We stayed here for our wedding on 2/5/14. Cath and Steve were fantastic, they were so helpful. This place is immaculate, there is nothing I could fault. There were even hooks high on the wall for my wedding dress, just ingenious! We were even given a wedding gift x
The breakfast was beautifully cooked too. We will definitely be staying here again !
Off road parking too which is a bonus !
Thank you x

Stayed 2 nights Fri & Sat April 2014. Steve and Cathy looked after Karon and I from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The B&B is immaculate throughout, the smaller details such as complimentary tea, coffee and fresh towels, replenished daily. Of course the breakfast (with the food of the gods 'haggis') just the best. No gripes here I can assure you all.

Offers wonderful piece of mind too as your vehicle is off road in the parking spaces available on site. More importantly, my wife and I travelled to Scotland on my Goldwing motorcycle so security is paramount. Ideal for small biker parties I'd say as Steve being a biker, was thorough enough to place the bike so it was tucked away mostly out of site. I also provided my own security too.

Great location, 5 minutes walk to the Hazeldene Hotel for good old fashioned reasonably priced food, 100 yds from the railway station (NO RAILWAY NOISE) and we were the closest room to it. Trip down into Annan to the Indian for a Ruby Murray.

Many thanks to our wonderful hosts and we will see you again on the 25th May for the Start of our motorcycle tour around Scotland.

Thank you xxx

Because the Alexander House used to be a few 19th century railway cottages it can look a little like, well, 19th century railway cottages, meaning kind of plain. But that is the only thing that is plain. We just stayed one night on our way up to Scotland. Catherine and Stephen were quite friendly and helpful with everything. The room we had was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. I whole heartedly recommend Alexander House.

We only spent one night here on our way north. It was very nice, the room was lovely prepared, we had a relaxing and peaceful rest and a great breakfast, where even our special wishes were easily fulfilled!

Stayed for one night 6 October 2013 as a stop over when returning home from a short break in Scotland. We were travelling with our friends and only rang the night before to book, but able to book 2 rooms. Fantastic friendly hosts, the rooms were spotless all en suite, tea, coffee and bottled water in your room. Very good varied choice for breakfast and with unlimited tea/coffee. Near the Railway station, but very peaceful and had a good nights sleep with very comfy beds.
Would recommend to family and friends and if in the area again will definitely stay here again.
The owners do a good job and should be very proud.

We were in Gretna for a wedding and chose to stay here after reading about it on trip advisor .The rooms were lovely and clean the beds were lovely and comfortable,tea and coffee facilities were in the room also a hairdryer . Breakfast was lovely a great selection of cereals fresh fruit and fresh berries and yoghurt and then a full english with either blackpudding or haggis I opted to have haggis with mine and it was lovely :) You could also have scrambled or poached eggs . I would highly recommend this place to my friends and family .

Like many others we were in Gretna for a wedding and chose this B&B after reading the positive reports on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. Our room was spotless and little extra touches were provided such as little mints on the tea tray. As others have said, the bed was very comfortable. I rarely sleep well when away from home but this was the exception. The whole place was light, bright and maintained to a high standard with a nice ambience. At breakfast there was a good choice of cereal, fruit, including lovely mixed berries, yogurt and of course, a filling and tasty full english. The proprietors should be deservedly proud of the lovely little guest house they run and I would thoroughly recommend it to fellow travellers.

A hook in the bathroom for hanging clothes would be useful and the little uht milks in the room make the tea and coffee taste weird - we couldnt drink it. This in no way affected our stay but i imagine the owners probably appreciate all comments.
