We stayed one night in one of the smaller rooms, clean and comfortable. Owners were very welcoming and could not have done more to help us. Breakfast was lovely, bed really comfortable and lovely bathroom - would not hesitate to recommend.

It had the four poster bed and jacuzzi bath as stated on the web site. The linen was beautiful, as was the room. In our room was a bottle of wine and... More

We stayed one night over the weekend and not entirely sure what to make of it, but erred on the positive. We turned up a little earlier than the stated time, but no one was about (although the door was unlocked) eventually the guy turned up 15 minutes after check-in time, but sat in his car for 5 minutes before...

Really enjoyed our recent stay with Brenda and Roy who are really nice people. Great value for money, location, parking, breakfast... You get my meaning. I would recommend this place to anyone. Not a faceless chain hotel but a homely abode with real people.

Being an older couple who have been together for many years, we wanted a quiet, romantic wedding and we were not disappointed when we chose Anvil View for our base.

Unfortunately we only stayed for 1 night here, we stayed in the deluxe room with the jacuzzi bath. Everything was clean & comfortable, hosts are lovely, friendly & helpful. It's perfectly situated for any Gretna venue, breakfast was plentiful & tasty with various options.
