“Superb”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

We got married at nearby Comlongon Castle on 26 January 2013 and ourselves and 11 of our guests stayed here on 25 and 26 January 2013.

From the moment we arrived, the service was excellent. All staff were professional and polite. The food throughout was first class. Nothing was too much trouble. I was a nervous wreck on the day of the wedding and Ellen very kindly took over the decorating of the tables and made them look far better than I ever could.

There were two young children in our party and they were made to feel as welcome as the adults even though they were quite excitable!

There was heavy snow coupled with bright sunshine and this made the views amazing over the Solway.

Some of our guests loved it so much they stayed for an additional night!

In short, we loved it and intend to return again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view over the Solway. Also the lounge upstairs is great for sitting in and...

Stayed at this hotel on Sunday 3rd February at a wedding reception. Well worth a 5 star review, staff very friendly and could not have been more helpful, food good quality and reasonably priced ( especially the Scottish cooked breakfast!), comfortable room, high standard bathroom,
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Would have no hesitation in recommending to friends

After entering the hotel and having to search for a member of staff to ask about our booked table I didn't think it was a good start to the evening, although the young girl was polite and helpfull. Two young waitresses where pleasant , friendly had good customer attitude which is more than can be said for the senior member who spoke quite sharply , was condescending , and could not cope with any order that was out of synchronization ,eg.we could order after dinner drinks untill the dessert order was complete! The meal it's self was reasonable, although there was a good wait for it to arrive at the table, and unfortunately a couple of meals where spoilt because salt had been put in pepper pots! The experience on the whole was very disappointing. which was a shame as we had traveled 300 miles to visit family and enjoy an evening out. On a brighter note Powfoot is a very lovely village with beautiful views over the Solway.

Stayed over New Year. Staff were fantastic - couldn't have done more for us to make our stay special. Contacted local bars and restaurants for opening times and bookings, arranged taxis, even offered to run us into Annan if we were stuck for transport. Made to feel very welcome by all staff. Rooms very clean, good size and well presented. Excellent food in restaurant. Highly recommend this hotel - Will definitely be making a return visit.

Just return from a fantastic weekend visiting family in scotland. We chose this hotel as its only about 200 yards from where they live and altough it took an hour for us to check in the hotel was very comfortable. It does need updating and the bath room was adequate but does need some work. I would recommend this hotel as it close to all the sight seeing places

I have so many good comments to say about this Hotel, i really don't know where to start. I believe in being honest and giving you all as much helpful information as i can if you are looking to hold your wedding reception/evening do here. Our wedding was on 29/09/2012 and from the moment we arrived until the time we left Ellen the manager and her staff were always on hand to help and to answer any queries we had,not only for my husband and i but also our 58 guests! The bedrooms are a good size with a very large double bed (Of coarse the bridal suite was the best) exceptionally clean,cosy and modern. We had an evening meal on the Thursday & Friday before our wedding, the food was outstanding! On our wedding day i had breakfast in bed which again was delicious. Our wedding breakfast (reception) consisted of soup/prawn cocktail followed by beef/chicken followed by apple crumble. My guests could not comment enough on the high quality of the food, the night do buffet was to die for we had the hot and cold buffet to give our guests the best of both worlds and what a good choice that was. There was way too much food made, all our guests were so full and couldn't eat another thing and believe me that takes some doing! Our day was just perfect,the only thing that was a disaster was being let down by AZTEC DISCO'S!!! We came down at 7.30pm ready to welcome our guests back to enjoy the evening do.....no disco! I immediately went to Ellen she couldn't believe it either, she phoned them straight away and they gave us a very very feeble excuse,to which we still have not had a apology (yet they were quite happy to cash our cheque 2 weeks previous) BIG MISTAKE. Ellen then phoned numerous DJ's and at 8.15pm managed to get hold of one. How helpful and caring she was...''you will have your 1st dance'' she said. Also how good was Neil for being called out at that time of night and giving us a disco at such short notice. We had our first dance and i cried probably the relief..... i really didn't think Ellen would manage to find anyone but she pulled it off,we could not thank her enough. At the end of the night guests were struggling to get taxi's back to alternative accommodation and once again members of bar staff stepped up to the mark and done several trips to take them. Everyone who worked at the hotel on the day of our wedding went above and beyond their call of duty, i really can't praise them enough,i would most definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is thinking of getting married in Gretna Green, it's just a 10 minute drive from Gretna but well worth it,with it's stunning picturesque views what more could anyone ask for.
So..... to Ellen, hubby, chef and staff a big big thank you from us to you, for giving us a perfect day to remember for the rest of our lives. With Love Jackie & Glyn Bettison. (North Wales)
