Spent 2 nights at The Gables paying £70 internet rate which is an excellent price. First night the room we were allocated was subject to noise from the kitchens below apparently it was the the fridges and freezers but it was a constant noise like a generator and prevented much sleep. The following morning I went to Reception and mentioned it to see if we could be allocated another room and blow me they gave us what must have been the best room in the hotel. 4 poster, Jacuzzi, bath robes etc., absolutely brilliant. The staff were excellent as was the service. The hotel dining room was heaving at breakfast on Sunday but even though they were short staffed the coped majestically. One of the best hotels I have stayed at and we will be back.

My husband and I married at the Mill Forge 29/12/09 and we had our wedding reception and accommodation booked at the Gables. We stayed in The Ailsa suite for three nights, it was everything we could have hoped for, after taking a gamble and booking everything on line, we were not disappointed.

Around 16 of the rooms were also booked out to our wedding guests and everyone seemed to agree that the hotel was lovely and the staff very helpful and approachable. The food both in the bar and the buffet on the day of the weddiing were 'spot on' . There was one hiccup on the day before the wedding when we booked in for the bar meal along with other family members. There was a staff shortage problem due to illness and things were very hectic in the kitchen, we waited almost an hour for our meal and some of our family waited almost an hour and a half, the staff were most apologetic, and our family were compensated for their wait (unfortunately we weren't, but nevermind it was just a minor unavoidable glitch!).

It was a thoroughly pleasureable stay and our wedding guests agreed, we hope to visit again for our 1st wedding anniversary, and we would thoroughly reccommend this hotel to anyone, but especially those wishing to marry in Gretna!

We came up for my son’s wedding who we booked in the Bridal Suite for 2 nights, along with 6 other guests and their families. Everyone enjoyed it and gave it a 100% recommendation. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, and the breakfasts were excellent. Superb food and piping hot. Rooms clean, quiet and comfortable. A huge advantage was that we had a ‘noisy party’ along with another group, and did not have to worry about disturbing anyone as bar is so remote from bedrooms. Would look forward to returning again and fantastic value for money. Well done to all staff and thank you. Mr & Mrs White (senior)

We stayed here for four nights whilst we were up in the area booking our wedding. We arrived in awful weather to a lovely welcome, in fact every single member of staff was friendly and extremely helpful.
We booked a standard double which suited our needs perfectly. The room was lovely, spotlessly clean and cleaned and replenished every morning as if by magic! The food was really great quality and the portion sizes thoroughly filled us up. The prices were also very good for the food we had.
We had a show round with the view to booking a number of rooms in Sept next year and the other rooms we saw were all of a high quality, especially the bridal suites. This hotel boasts a number of function rooms to suit all sorts of events. The wedding co-ordinator was a huge wealth of knowledge and we felt that she, and in fact everyone, couldn't do enough to make us feel like us and our wedding guests would be well looked after.
Please do not be put off by the negative reviews on this site, this hotel really is a gem and if it is a warm, welcoming stay that makes you leave feeling thoroughly looked after and rested, this is your hotel. Ok, some areas are a little dated, but in-keeping with the area and atmosphere of the place. The hospitality is so great that you don't even notice.
I hope The Gables keeps up the good work and my partner and I cant wait to go back in the new year! xxx
