Reviewed November 18, 2012

Just got back from our wedding which was organised by Smiths at Gretna Green. We booked a late wedding package which included rooms for our guests and the thistle suite for us. It was absolutely fantastic. Accommodation was excellent for us and we saw many of our guests' rooms too which were all of good quality. The staff were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. The little extra touches, like the champagne, chocs and teddy bear in our room were really appreciated by us. In terms of the wedding itself, the hotel and the famous blacksmiths across the road were well coordinated and the day ran with few hitches and any hiccups were dealt with quickly and without fuss. It was scary booking our wedding online without having ever been to the venue but we are so glad we did it like this. Minimal stress, saved loads of money and comments from friends and family that it was the best wedding ever have all made this hotel a winner in our eyes. We used Spoilt for our hair and make up and they too were excellent. Ignore the review about fitness centre - there wasn't one and it was touched in error and there was no option to remove. Hopefully, we will be able to return for an anniversary in the future. Thanks Smiths!

This hotel is a busy wedding venue, being opposite the popular Gretna Green Smithy. It has a pleasant atmosphere but one cannot really escape the multiple wedding parties. There is a small but excellent beauty spa. The staff were kind and attentive and food excellent even if slightly pricey. The adapted room - disabled spouse - was great and no extra charge. The carpet was stained but room service generally good.

Room Tip: Ask if possible to be away from party groups who bang doors continually through the night.

having read some of the reviews before staying here i was'nt really sure about it, with a few people saying it was full of wedding parties but we stayed on a mondy night so it was quite quiet, but i stayed here with my wife and was very impressed. the reception staff were really helpfull on check in, our room was big with sitting area and fireplace to add that homely touch, it was also very clean and comfortable and i had a great nights sleep on a really comfy bed, We had a meal in the restaurant at night and must admit it was some of the best food i have tasted in ages (even tho they forgot one part of the order), the Staff were really friendly and even had time for a little chat, we would definitely stay at this hotel again,

Have just got back from staying here with my husband and we were impressed. our room was clean, modern and very comfortable and had a lovely balcony with a view towards the blacksmiths shop. We had amazing cocktails and had a meal at the restaurant - the food was amazing. Staff friendly and helpful, would definitely stay again.

I have stayed here several times on business and find the staff are superb. The rooms are good, spacious and clean, the evening menu is inspired and usually delivers.
However, if you want a relaxing evening after a long day away from home - forget it. There is usually a wedding party or a pre wedding party who understandably are enjoying themselves,

From my perspective, apart from the weddings the one thing that lets this, I will admit, lovely hotel, down, is the breakfast; pre-cooked, plastic and cold. How can the great food of the evening morph into this???

Thanks for the review holidaysrus, much appreciated. I understand your points. Being in Gretna Green we are of course going to have a few brides knocking about, not always, certainly not so much midweek, but Friday and Saturdays, yes, quite a few (thankfully!!, for business purpose you understand) and especially during the summer months June through August. Nice to see your comment about actually liking the hotel and i will mention the breakfast to chef, this not being an issue we normally have, quite the opposite in fact, but it is always prudent to review and action all of our service areas to ensure that we are not complacent in any way. Thaks again for taking the time to post your comments. Best regards Darren.
