Historical Traveller Reviews of Gretna Hall Hotel
Wonderful Couple of Daysfrom macomarsh
However, once our party arrived, all fears were taken away. It was evident that the remarks of some reporters were more to do with their unhappiness at getting married than with the hotel itself.
Yes...the carpets were worn in the bar and corridors but the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and service wonderful.
My wife and I were lucky enough to have our wedding in the Linton Room over in the wedding location and the staff really know how to make it a special day. It was raining but due to the great people there, it didn't spoil the day one bit.
Our party used 3 rooms, all of which were clean and well sized. Ours was the family room, which has bunk beds as well as the double and a nice seating area. It had a patio which has a wonderful view of the gardens. If you get a choice, ask for the garden side rooms for this purpose.
I read from some that the noise was loud from the motorway if you are located on the other side of the hotel. To find out for myself, I stood by a room that backed on to the motorway while it was being cleaned and it had its windows open. You could hear the traffic but not excessively. It certainly would not have prevented me sleeping or enjoying my stay. Just a point to note is that all of the hotels in the Gretna Green location back onto the Motorway as it runs right over the middle of the village and will have this as a common theme. Do not be frightened off by this as the noise levels are not excessive.
To sum up, the location is perfect for weddings and the setting is very pretty. The rooms are clean and the staff friendly. I agree with a previous review that some people will pick at anything and are probably venting at something other than the hotel!
I would definitley stay there again and would highly recommend it for aspecial day!
t fault it!from Jeccabean
Tatty Hotel that charges top prices!from DavidNorfolkSalesGuy
We had travelled for around 5 hours in the car, so we just wanted to check in get changed and relax. However, the room we were given was on the ground floor of the hotel, miles away from reception in the bed had about 1ft of space around the outside, so very small. The only ventilation was a window that opened about 4inchs and when you did this the sound from the motorway (which is about 20 metres behind the hotel) was deafening!
The original hotel building dates from the 1700's and looks great on all the photos, however, what they do not show you is attached just on the right of the picture is a very poorly maintained 1970's pebbledashed extension.
Their website also mentions that ALL rooms were refurbished recently. That is true, but they were not done to a very high standard. The carpets are badly worn and in the corridors are riddled with duct tape to hold them together.
On the plus point, which is why I have reviewed this as Okay and not Terrible, is that the food in the restaurant was good and served pretty promptly.
Please if you are thinking of having you big day here, please do not be tricked into paying the TOP rate. We met several older couples who were staying here for a few days and they had the best rooms and paid only £25 DB&B per person.
The Wedding Plannersfrom Han_Chris
Our wedding party arrived on the Monday and we took over the bar giggling until closing time. The staff were completely helpful, making sure everyone knew their places for the next day.
We stayed in a twin room which was clean, plenty of towels and very comfortable.
The rooom was perfect for the pre wedding evening.
The staff were really good fun and were to hand all of the time we were there and dealt with evey minor bride to be demand that I could throw at the them. They were so professional.
The Wedding day, meal and drinks went completly to plan with everyone having the most fabulous day.
The wedding evening room my Husband and I had teh Bourbonne Smythe which was eloquently decorated with exceptional facilities including a jacuzzi bath and complementry bottle of champagne.
I would recommend these guys and this hotel any time.
t be staying here again!from babychicken77
The bed wasn’t comfortable, it really needed a new mattress and creaked every time I moved. The room was a bit tatty and the bathroom could have done with a proper clean.
The food wasn’t great – although the service was fine.
I definitely wouldn’t stay here again.
Fantastic valuefrom bykergt750
Rooms were beautifully decorated abd lovely furnishings.
Food was lovely. 4 courses.
My second visit and will return
I would like to finish by thanking ALL the staff, Management waitessses, room service, groundsmen, and catering staff and to add that we couldn't have received better if we had been royalty! Which one of the aunties actually felt! Thank you so very much.
Awful - Never Againfrom JimBobGeoffery
The food was okay although had to wait a long time for the starter. There was no offer of drinks or sight of a wine list. The portion sizes were a little on the small side.
The room could do with updating and a good clean! The floor tiles in the bathroom were loose and very dangerous when wet.
I wouldn't recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Gretna.
Simply Awfulfrom Downundercouple
