We stopped off to stay overnight on the way from the Cairnryan ferry to Northampton. It is very convenient for a stopover, being located next to the M74 motorway, close to Gretna Green. The property is welcoming with an efficient check in and friendly, helpful staff. Reception is located at the top end of a large car park, with restaurant...

This was an unfortunate stay. The staff were pleasant enough however the wall to the adjacent room was so thin you could hear everything. Ever switch click, each use of the toilet including lifting the seat let alone a flush. Sadly the couple also had an argument which distressingly left the lady in tears. This was reported to reception upon...

Our Christmas Eve Wedding was perfect. Just the two of us. The Bridal Suite was gorgeous. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Complimentary Chocs and Champagne were a lovely touch. They even helped me with my dress. The photographer was amazing and the minister we chose was perfect. It was like a fairytale from start to finish. Can't...

From booking early in the year to wedding date 16/12/16 I can not fault the venue in any way shape or form. Staff are brilliant, rooms immaculate, food and bar perfect, wedding hall is fantastic, and location of everything is a joy. A totally brilliant experience which left fantastic memories. Thank you very much!

This hotel provides excellent facilities for providing weddings. The location is good just off the A74, but traffic noise is obscured by trees. The entire staff are eager to help and are always smiling. Food was good. The rooms were nice but our bed was hard and the pillows were hopeless. Having said that, overall they were satisfactory for a...
