Stayed on 3rd September for one night on our way to Teesdale Hotel , Middleton-in-Teesdale.
Car parking was easy at hotel. Check in was quick and friendly
Car registration entered into computer at reception desk to ensure free parking,
Room was freshly decorated, bedroom and bathroom very clean as was bed linen.
Free wi-fi in bedroom. was excellent.
Didnt hear much noise throughout our stay.
Did not have the breakfast so cannot comment on that.

Got an excellent deal £25 a night .Check in was painless and friendly car was booked into computer by staff didnt even know about 2 hour rule in services, your cars photo gets taken on entering and leaving the services. Im sure kels123NIreland will get a refund on his charges.
Room was large and clean big comfy bed ,had flat screen tea coffee tray . Gretna only minutes away so was real handy . would not hesitate to stay again .

Beware of the parking charges once your car is parked over 2 hours!!! I have just received a parking charge notice for £120.00. A total disgrace. Oh and that is not including the admin charge from the car rental company.

DaysInnPeterborough, Manager at Days Inn Gretna Green M74, responded to this review, September 7, 2012
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us at the Days Inn Gretna Green, I am sorry you received a parking fine while staying with us. Obviously, parking is complimentary to our hotel customers and the two hours free parking apply to guest visiting the services main building.
We have signs at the hotel and on our car park reminding guest to enter car registration details upon checking in at the hotel and also our reception team are normally very good at making sure customers impute car details correctly. I apologise if this was not pointed to your attention while you checked in.
I am disappointed from the low rating received and hope this is reflecting the parking issue and not your actual stay, and if i may ask you to please contact the hotel with your fine details, we will naturally be revoking the parking fine.
Kindest regards, Yann Besombes, Hotel Manager

Having spent 2 nights at the inn in a family room. We cannot complain about the staff the cleanliness of the room or service provided.
Having said that it is located on the service area. This gives great access to both north and south and does not cause problems with noise etc.
One big down fall is that food is only available in the main services building. Which it did nothing but rain while we were there and a few hundred yards dash for food is not ideal more so with young children.
The other problem was the bed was was well worn which resulted in anyone constantly being pulled to the centre of the bed.
Having said that we would return quite happily it was an enjoyable break at a good price.

Fantastic welcome from Elaine, who is from our neck of the woods!.
We were made to feel welcome and very confy, we had two dogs with us and our boys, both the dogs and our kiddies were made a fuss of, and we were made to feel very special.

Always a kind a smiling hello when we arrived back from a busy day out and about, reception gave us great advice on things to do and how far these destinations were.

Only a two min drive from gretna green, which has many great places to eat. Service station is a little expensive, but again all staff there are fantastic and very very warm.

Only issue we had was that on one of our days out we wanted our room serviced fully, it was mid week we had been inthe room for four days, and we had not wanted the room cleaning every day as i didnt think it fair as we had the dogs and a lot of baggage.

When returning to the room, after a day out including the dogs our "please clean room" sign had been put back in room but onlythe beds had been made. I raised the issue with reception and she came back with a few requests before they would clean our room. Move our toileteries and dog bowls that were infact empty. Did this and was subjected to a very snooty house keeper going to clean our rooms, young with brown hair, not sure of name, but certanley noticed the dirty look. not appreciated with the money we paid and the fact we had not requested our room be cleaned for the previouse three days.

On the plus side, days inn have another lovely housekeeper who has blonde hair (sorry did not notice you name but we did talk one day), lovely young lady, always had a smile and was very polite, worked here since May, good luck with your future my love, you will go far.

all in all a great stay, would def recomend, infact did whilst staying and my sister in law came and stayed a we were also in the area for by brother in laws wonderful wedding. well done hope to see you all again

Room Tip: ask for a room not facing car park as the noise on a morning can be a bit loud, and the rooms get so...

We stayed for one night as we was at a wedding clean & comfortable nice size room and fresh towels.
The only down fall is the breakfast is in the services and it was £18 for two breakfast :( and that our room was all ready but they wanted to charge us a extra £10 because it was before 14:00 which i jus think is a money racket!!

This hotel is on a motorway service area so it's a bit outside Gretna Green, and there is no bar. The food is from the motorway service restaurant so it's not gourmet! But as long as you are ok with this the hotel is fine. Staff were very helpful, room clean, bed comfy and probably a bit better than the average travelodge.
Free wifi is a bonus, if a bit slow for watching Iplayer.
Overall a decent overnight stop, but not for more than one night.
