Positive Reviews

Border town location off the motorway

The easy access to this property from the A74(M) and M6 motorways appealed to guests as did the proximity of shops, amenities and dining options in Gretna and neighbouring Gretna Green. Wedding venues and related services were plentiful nearby too. Holidaymakers said it was straightforward to reach area attractions, Galloway Forest Park and the Lake District National Park and Northumberland National Park for a wide range of outdoor pursuits. Drivers liked free parking plus the proximity petrol stations. For non-drivers, it was conveniently within walking distance of Gretna Green railway station.

Praise for refurbished rooms and shared facilities

Guests said the modern premises were smart and presentable with an inviting lobby lounge, dining area and stylish bar serving draught beers. The pleasant Japanese gardens with water features also won praise. The refurbished rooms were reportedly spacious, well-cleaned, well-appointed and comfy with cosy beds.

Friendly staff and appetizing breakfasts

Diners often enjoyed the free breakfast, saying the food was tasty and served in generously-sized portions. The polite, attentive and friendly members of staff made reviewers feel at home.

Negative Reviews

Occasional noise issues

Light sleepers sometimes claimed certain rooms were exposed to occasional traffic noise or the sound of delivery vehicles.

Claims some rooms were flawed

Some reviewers said they struggled to regulate the room temperature in certain parts of the accommodation during the warmest and coldest weather. There was also occasional criticism of some of the non-refurbished rooms that reportedly had a dated feel.

Mixed feelings about restaurant food and service

Although many diners enjoyed the meals at the restaurant, saying the food was well-cooked with good quality ingredients, several critics claimed their food was nothing special or that the service was occasionally slow or disorganized during peak times.
