“Great Overnight Stay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Booked into The Solway Lodge for Bed and Breakfast on the Friday afternoon as we were driving down to Yorkshire the next day. Bedroom was clean and tidy with double bed and tea and coffee tray room had large window and was bright and when opened gave a nice breeze. Staff were very friendly from the Receptionist, Barman and Waiting Staff. I enjoyed a few pints in the bar at night and had a good sleep in a comfortable bed with nice soft pillows. In the morning I had a refreshing shower then went down for Breakfast I asked for Porridge and this was no problem as the young Girl was most helpful in all aspects of our Breakfast the Porridge was tasty as was the cooked breakfast with fresh Toast and Tea. Just a pity I did not have the Evening Dinner as we went for a walk and we had Fish and Chips not far from the hotel. We will visit
again as we enjoyed the stay cant fault it.

Room Tip: Room 16 were we stayed is at the front of the Hotel and with window opened you can hear the noise fr...

Six family members and 7 of my sons friends plus the brides family and friends stayed here ,on the 2nd and 3rd june 2013 .I could not fault the hotel very well organised. DJ/ singer is a top entertainer Gary James. The afternoon meal was excellent lots of choices on the day which is rare. The rooms were functional ,breakfast service was excellent with good choice . .The hotel also owned the Gretna Inn just down the road most of the wedding party had a meal there Sunday and i didnt hear of any complaints ,my wifes chicken salad and my ham salad was top notch .Not the best of hotels but certainly very good overall .

Room Tip: ask for one in the main hotel at front you get a great view of solway firth

I recently attended the wedding of my niece, to say that the staff were excellent isn't heaping enough praise on them, the food, the rooms,the cleanliness, the attention to detail, I wish I had chosen this venue when I married.
Nothing was too much trouble and every request was answered or delivered with a smile and courtesy.
The food was outstanding, both the evening meal and the breakfast, and special thanks go to Fiona & Nicki.
I have never left feedback before but this venue certainly merits it.
A very big thank you for a very special day.

Room Tip: Lovely views of the Solway from room 14

Just had the best wedding weekend at the Solway - it was super. Staff were brilliant, nothing too much trouble even when their guests (us!), sometimes put them under pressure. The food was top class, never seen such a vast selection on a wedding menu and it was all perfect - hot, tasty and all served at the same time. The room where we had the reception was stunning thanks to the hotel staff and the staff at Tantrums Wedding Hire. Massive thank you to all the staff for making it a perfect wedding.

we recently attended a wedding reception at the Solway and we were really impressed. the venue was excellent and nothing seemed a trouble for the staff who were attentive and polite at all times. the reception room was beautiful and menu was first class with plenty to choose from and food was excellent. would highly recommend the Solway to anyone. we didn't stay in any of the rooms but from hearing what the rest of the party had said it is rated highly and the bide and groom were especially pleased with the bridal suite. thank you to all who made our visit a great one.
