“Good enough for overnight Stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2011

Just what we expected a perfectly adequate room with a comfy bed.
Perfect for a nights sleep before continuing north
Largish bedroom with a double bed and a double sofa bed.
Teamaking facilities adequate and TV ( remote did not work but we just used the panel on TV) was good enough
The bathroom was OK but let down by some discoloured tiles and black mould marks on the ceiling.
Lovely soft towels but marred by having a soap dispenser in the shower (a personal hate) a bar of soap would have been preferable!
The hotel was perfectly clean and was very quiet and away from the service area.
The restaurant on the service area was quite expensive but there is a KFC and a Burger King so we ate there. There is a large W H Smiths and Scottish gift shop also on site so you are well catered for.They are all within a very short distance of the hotel
Good value for £39 in that area.

If you want a decent cheapish breakfast I can recommend the cafe at the Gretna Outlet Village

Staff were friendly and very helpful!

Used this hotel to break up a journey up to Scotland and had chosen it purely based on location and price, but found it to be really good value for money. The room was large with a very comfortable double bed. The shower was nice and powerful and the bathroom was spotlessly clean. Our room price was only £40 but included breakfast which was brought our room in the morning. The breakfast included a piece of fruit, muller yoghurt, kelloggs cereal orange juice, milk and a croissant with butter and jam. The coffee in the room was kenco and the hot chocolate was cadbury. Considering how close it is to the M6 it was very quiet. We had everything we needed for our stay and at such a great price.

We only had three small problems with our stay the biggest was the room temperature. Our group was staying in 2 rooms opposite each other, the first one we walked into was definitely on the chilly side and the second one we walked into was like a sauna. There was controls on the heaters but it took the cooler room a couple of hours to start feeling warm while the warm room we switched the heater off and opened the windows but it didn't really get down to the right temperature until the early hours of the morning. Most of the staff we encountered were very friendly but the woman who checked us in wasn't very approachable and at times impatient with us for no good reason. Finally, they asked us when we wanted breakfast delivered and we said 8:30. They told us that that time slot wasn't available but that we could have it at 8:40 which was fine. But then they bought it at 8:25 when I was in the shower. It seemed silly to insist on arranging a specific time slot only to bring it 15 mins early.

Overall we found it to be great value for money hotel and would definitely use it again and recommend it for others.

Just had a two night stay here. Been to Days Inn previously but only in the USA however, we were pleasantly surprised.
Large room, spotlessley clean, nicely decorated, with all the amenities you could want.
Comfortable bed, and a nice bathroom with complimentary shower gel and soap.
It is a shame that there is no restaurant, but many Days Inn's do not have one, and you know before you go that it is situated on a service area, but you can pre-pay for breakfast, at a better price, and just walk over to the restautant there, no problem.
A throughly enjoyable stay.

Just called in to see if there was a room available and the reception lady was lovely. Offered different room types and I opted for one with a Jucuzzi, a treat after a long drive. I am always concerned when stopping at a service station as to wether I will get a quite night but no problem here. Comfortable bed good facilites. No restaurant but adequate Fast Food nearby and always restaurants and hotels in nearby Gretna

We stayed here for one night to break our journey home from holiday. We'd been really fortunate and had managed to obtain a rate of £10 - so fantastic value. Check in was quick and efficient - very friendly and helpful staff on reception. The room was quite basic but the bed and pillows were really comfortable and even though there were wedding parties staying we didn't hear any noise. The hotel, being only on one level had the added benefit of no noise from rooms overhead.

Didn't appear to be any restaurants nearby so had to make do with fast-food outlets in the adjoining service station for dinner.
