Me and my girlfriend stayed here for one night and would definitely stay here again. Absolutely stunning location literally a stones throw from the motorway but you can't hear the passing traffic once in your room. We stayed in room 34 and we were stunned by how beautiful and spacious the room was. Very comfortable and romantic bed, decent sized...

My husband and I got married here on 23rd December and from the moment we arrived until we left it was perfect. Our bridal suite was beautiful and the bar/restaurant was a warm and welcoming environment. The forge itself was the perfect setting for our small intimate wedding

Enjoyed a wonderful overnight stay at the Mill Forge Hotel near Gretna Green. On entering the reception area where we were assisted by a most friendly female member of staff, who described the venue in full. We were able to park our car at the door of our room, within the intriguing courtyard location. Our family room was spacious, warm,...

We've used this picturesque hotel as a central meeting place with friends for the last four years and enjoyed great times in the warmth of the welcoming bar area. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable, and Gretna Shopping Centre just down the road is perfect for our Christmas shopping. The food is scrumptious and the staff very friendly and...

My husband and I had the misfortune to be invited to a wedding here. We was expecting a quite grand affair. But what we encountered was a Scottish theme on Las Vegas. Cheap, tacky, and very over priced. I can understand the romantic reasoning for wishing to get married at Gretna Green, or in this case a ripped off version,...

I have to say that I'm a more than a little taken aback by this review. While I accept that we may not be to everybody's taste, I find your comments to be overly critical as we have many many customers who love what we offer. The personal attack you have made on me before criticising the whole of the...
