“Fantastic wedding reception and accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

We are just back from our wedding 13-4-13 with 32 guests and i must say we were over joyed by the hotel. Our wedding meal was Fantastic all our guest commented on how good it was. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Loved our Honeymoon room was lovely and the whirlpool bath is a must!! Would recommend to anyone for a few nights stay or to have their wedding reception there.

Room Tip: Rooms are a good size, Clean and tidy, Helpful and meals are lovely

My husband often stays here on business and as part of our travels over Easter we stayed here overnight. Room was lovely, clean large very comfortable bed and overlooked the lovely gardens. Only drawback was the extremely bright light indicating the heated towel rail eas working. it was so bright we had to cover it with a hand towel so I could get some sleep. We had our evening meal in the bar which is obviously very popular with the locals. Our steaks were done to perfection and the wine at just the right temperature. No room for dessert but they were homemade and looked delicious. Breakfast was good and all the staff friendly and attentive. No wonder my husband stays here when on his way to Scotland!

We took 25 guests at the end of March for our wedding. It was perfect! From the helpful, polite, nothings too much trouble staff; to the lovely kept rooms and gardens. The food and service was second to none (even though most of us struggled to eat it all...must have been with all the excitement of the day). The bar staff were fantastic too. Neither us nor our guests could find any fault with any aspect of our stay.... if you are considering a Gretna wedding then please check this place out! For us and our party we couldn't have asked for anything better!

Thankyou to all the staff at the Gretna Chase. :)

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor both times and they were both excelent.

We stayed here for our Wedding on.the 25 & 26 of march we also took 38 adults and 7 children we ended up booking out whole hotel and I can safely say on behalf of all my guests this Hotel was perfect in everyway. Nothing was too much trouble they were very accommodating to my friend who needed to put medication in to there fridge for her little boy. the Wedding meal was Devine and thoroughly enjoyed the sweet table. We stayed in the Paulo and Francesca suite it was massive and beautifully decorated and had the best hot tub I have ever seen. The rest of the rooms my guests stayed in were all large clean with good facilities tea, coffee,iron, hairdryer and TV. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.
We used the one stop Wedding shop who organised this hotel and our special day xxx

We stopped here for lunch on our trip down to the south of England. There was a great choice of food available - varied bar menu, snack menu and a specials board.

They had a soup and toastie option for £4.95 and sweet and sour chicken with rice for just under £6. Great value and a great taste.

The staff were very friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend the place and we will be back when we are next passing.

After staying 2 nights for my friends wedding at the Gretna Chase I'd like to Thank ALL the staff for making my friends wedding so wonderful. Everything went smoothly the decorations were beautiful the food was gorgeous and the choice of starters and sweets were superb. We had the roast beef for the main and it was absolutly divine. The staff were like busy bees they never stopped,They were well organised, prompt and did their upmost to keep everyone happy. I had the privilage to stay in the Romeo and Juliet suite which was stunning, cosy and clean. The only disappointment was the main road outside my window but the room itself distracted me from that so much so I found it very hard to leave. Compliments to Everyone at the Chase hotel and thankyou for making my stay such an enjoyable one.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Located on the Scottish / English border, Gretna Green is world famous for its runaway marriages and in the mid nineteenth century there was much rivalry between the various marriage house proprietors ... The Gretna Chase Hotel was built by John Murray, an extremely successful businessman in the marriage trade, and tenant of Allison's toll-bar. Completed in 1856, Murray built the hotel opposite the toll-bar. It proved very popular with clients, being the first in the area to offer stabling for horses. Today, The Gretna Chase Hotel offers modern amenities, but retains much of its original character. All bedrooms have pleasant views of the surrounding countryside, and public rooms are furnished in a style in-keeping with the age of the hotel. Fully licensed, privately owned and completely supervised by the owners, this small but extremely comfortable hotel offers the discerning guest a carefree informality away from city pressures. We would be delighted to show you around the hotel by appointment , to highlight all the facilities we have to offer and discuss your personal requirements. ... more   less
