We visited to attend a wedding, we stayed for 2 nights. The hotel is set in lovely gardens overlooking sheep very picturesque, THE ROOMS: the whole wedding party stayed here and the rooms varied considerably in their decor and size, our room was spacious, the decor and bathroom were a little dated & the over bath shower wasn't the best but it did the job, the bed unfortunately was not comfortable. THE FOOD: we ate here both days and the food was very good, would recommend the salmon from the main menu. THE STAFF: the staff from the moment we walked in were attentive, hospitable and truly wonderful, they could not do enough for the guests and all appeared friendly and warm, the bar man the first night was a true treasure and there were also a couple of exceptional young ladies working during the wedding meal who really went the extra mile - cannot praise and thank the staff enough all a true credit to this establishment.
The only small downfall was that there is very poor telephone reception here & whilst there is wifi it does not appear to work in all areas (can be a nice real from the world outside though)
- 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
