Reviewed July 11, 2012

Decided to stay here as a quick stopover whilst travelling from Aberdeen to Cardiff. We previously were going to book the nearest Premier Inn in the area however they upped the price from £29 to £54. We got our room at the Days Inn for just £28. Check in was really easy and the reception area had plenty of information, food and drink available for purchase and even a microwave which could come in handy.

The standard of room is in between a Travelodge and Premier Inn, more so towards the Premier Inn. The room was very clean with plenty of choice for tea and coffee, modern tv, comfy bed, great shower. Only complain was that the bathroom could have been a little cleaner as there were signs of mildew and it did look a little dated. For the money the hotel was bang on and for that I have to give it 5 stars and will definately stay here again in the future.

Pro's: Clean, cheap and comfy
Con's: Nothing major to report

Stayed hear as we went to a family wedding at smiths hotel gretna green which is litlerary a 3 minute drive away.
This hotel is in a service station with shops and food outlets ect which was good.
No bar or resturant in the hotel but with the service station next door it was ok to get food from their, would have been nice to have a bar but they did sell drinks and chocolate at reception.
Good clean room with tea and coffee, hairdryer, tv very good for the £49.99 a night for double we payed. very good location for weddings at gretna green if thats why your staying hear.

Stayed here at a wedding.. The room was clean and comfortable. Disappointing that there wasn't a bar in the hotel, would have been nice to have a few drinks.

The breakfast was quite expensive and wasn't even in the hotel. DON'T ORDER IT!!!
Honestly, the rashers were as hard as wood, and my mother was given raw eggs. The mushrooms were tinned... horrible, wouldn't eat it again if they paid me to.

Had a very bad experience with a VERY RUDE receptionist, who insulted me and my boyfriend. Really needs to learn some people skills. (To clarify, there were 2 receptionists, a young girl and an older woman. It was the older receptionist who insulted us).

Change in staff and I might reconsider staying there again.

We were more than pleased with this hotel. We were travelling as a family of 4 to a friends wedding and there was enough space for all 4 of us. We only got ready and slept in the days inn and it was clean and close by for what we needed. It was very easy to find just off the motorway and if you needed food the services were close by with a starbucks, KFC, burger king etc. All in all a good base to see the surrounding area.

We chose this hotel as our accommodation for a friends wedding, wish I hadn't bothered. We were stuck in a disabled room for some reason, whether that was because I booked a twin room I'm not sure. Was very dated and smelt damp, bergandy paint on the walls chipping off and overall stuffy. Complained to receptionist who clearly werent bothered and never offered another room so we checked out and didnt spend the night. Total waste of £60!!

Room Tip: Dont bother!

Stayed here as we were going to a wedding in gretna green. The rooms are ok, a bit dated and shabby, but clean. The receptionist was not particularly happy or welcoming. Lots of people staying with dogs, so not somewhere to stay if you don't like animals. Generally ok. A good base to see the surrounding area.
