Frankly the hotel wasn't quite what I'd expected. The website photos suggest an upmarket boutique feel, however, on arrival it's not as smart. Public areas feel dated and a little rough. Pet hate, throughout the hotel/ rooms, were hand-written/typed notes sellotaped to doors/ windows throughout the place - "don't open" - "no entry" whatever...Even had one blue-tacked to the mirror...

We love Gretna and stayed at the Gables as a change from our usual hornet the Gretna Green Hotel. We stayed in a four poster room with jacuzzi bath on a BBD deal, we found all the staff to be welcoming and polite, bar prices were reasonable.Only down side is in my opinion is both the rooms and bar areas...

From moment we arrived, reception had a note on saying "if no one in reception please go to bar".No one in bar either. Tracking staff down became the theme during our 2 night stay. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable, and warm. Dining! Wrong food came out, no sauce on pasta. Fruit sundae had almost frozen apple and a...

We stayed for one night DBB and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A wee change to visit Gretna for an overnight break and we were not disappointed. A lovely building with an interesting history (which you can read about on the wall in the bar). A friendly welcome and friendly service throughout our stay. Sure the furniture in the bedroom is...

Had our wedding reception here and have stayed a few times, so this hotel is very special to us. We've been lucky to have stayed in the wonderful Ailsa Suite before, but it wasn't available this time. We had room 36, which was very comfortable and fairly clean. Still, we had everything we needed. We had a very nice meal...

Nice wee place in the heart of Gretna. Been to this hotel a couple of times now. Rooms are modern and newly refurbished and the food is very good. Don't get me wrong, it's not the Ritz but definitely a great place to stay in an area worth visiting.

Outside looked lovely, modern entrance, reception and halls, then room was old fashioned and dirty. Stained carpets, marked bedding, slug in shower, cobwebs behind door, breakfast table dirty, soggy defrosted bread wrapped in cling film and not able to provide full breakfast as described.

Friendly staff with a lovely room. Cosy bar with roaring fire and lovely and clean. Hotel is just outside the main throng so it is easy to access but quiet with ample car parking. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it.
