Certificate of Excellence
Located on the Scottish / English border, Gretna Green is world famous for its runaway marriages and in the mid nineteenth century there was much rivalry between the various marriage house proprietors ... The Gretna Chase Hotel was built by John Murray, an extremely successful businessman in the marriage trade, and tenant of Allison's toll-bar. Completed in 1856, Murray built the hotel opposite the toll-bar. It proved very popular with clients, being the first in the area to offer stabling for horses. Today, The Gretna Chase Hotel offers modern amenities, but retains much of its original character. All bedrooms have pleasant views of the surrounding countryside, and public rooms are furnished in a style in-keeping with the age of the hotel. Fully licensed, privately owned and completely supervised by the owners, this small but extremely comfortable hotel offers the discerning guest a carefree informality away from city pressures. We would be delighted to show you around the hotel by appointment , to highlight all the facilities we have to offer and discuss your personal requirements.

We were staying in Gretna and came here for an evening meal. We hadn’t been here for years. Food was ok but it was quiet with only another 2 couples in the place so it did lack a bit of atmosphere. It was ok but I wouldn’t hurry back.

Fantastic selection of lovely food. We chose chicken stuffed with haggis served with whisky sauce from the specials menu. It was exceptional. Lovely veg accompaniments. Pleasant staff and warm atmosphere.

Is the hotel dog friendly?
Good Morning, I am sorry but unable to answer this question, if you call them they are very very friendly and I am sure if they don't they would recommend somewhere that would be able to accommodate you

Hi it's about 30 min walk from this hotel or 5 mins in the car. I really can't say how great this hotel is.... our wedding was perfect and Claire made sure everything ran smoothly. We married at Anvil Hall. Have a look at that too if your planning your wedding . You won't be disappointed. Speak to HEATH at Anvil hall. He was brilliant x
