What a great idea to stay with us before travelling onto the Lakes. Did you know that we have a B & B in Windermere too, Ellerthwaite Lodge, so make sure you give us a call the next time you are in the Lake District. So pleased that you had an enjoyable stay with us and found us to be comfortable, quiet and that you had great food for dinner and breakfast. Take care Gillian

We stopped by chance at this hotel the other night for a meal, the hotel offers both a bar and restaurant menu, we opted for the bar menu as it had slightly more choice and suited what we were looking for.
the surroundings were very nice and well maintained and the gentleman who looked after us did a great job, very attentive.
food was very well presented and tasted great, overall great value and nice surroundings, much better than most other hotels we have eaten or stopped at in Gretna.

Room Tip: we did not stay over but if the rooms are presented and maintained like the public areas then I am sure the will be very nice

We have just come back from a night away at this hotel and what excellent value it was. The room was spotless and comfortable and our evening meal was of a very high standard. The staff were all very friendly and the hotel had a welcoming feel. The grounds are well kept, with a mass of lovely bedding plants coming into bloom. All in all an excellent break.

Searched for a hotel from Castle Douglas to Gretna, they were overpriced or shabby that is until we found the Gables. Nice welcome from Aimee, and a good price (well it was a Sunday Night and not a lot going on). We ate in the Bar, good food, excellent attentive service and reasonable prices. We had to leave early the next morning and breakfast was ready at 07.00 which was half an hour ahead of the stated time. Room was sparkling and had everything, nice and quiet and a good nights sleep. Plenty of safe parking.

We stayed as part of a wedding party. The welcome was lovely and extremely friendly. The entrance to hotel is clean and well set out.

The normal double rooms are quite basic and more like a small B&B standard. The furniture is old fashioned pine and the beds aren't the most comfortable. Bedding also needs to be replaced as duvet and pillows were very thin. The rooms really should be priced around £70 and no more. The rooms are very clean and functional.

The rest of the hotel is very clean and again well set out. The garden and surrounding seating area are well set out. The outside needs more seats to accommodate the number of guests at the hotel.

Breakfast was prompt and very good.

Staff very polite and smart.

I wouldn't stay at hotel again but only due to high cost of bedroom but all in all a pleasant stay.
