We stayed recently at The Village Inn whilst attending a wedding at the nearby Springkell Mansion House. The cost was £40 for a family room with Bed & Breakfast. It was certainly worth the money. The premises are basic but clean. The rooms are set above the pub and I would say it makes a good stop off from a journey on the M74 or a wedding where we were. More importantly it could be used for a wedding at Gretna Green where the prices for accommodation are certainly more expensive than what we paid.
Alison the owner has a great personality and she is also very considerate. She can't do enough for you and certainly tries extremely hard to make sure you enjoy your stay! We left at 7am the next day to head to Manchester for a flight and Alison got up early to make us sausage and bacon sandwiches to take with us. Our daughter and son in law had a full breakfast and certainly enjoyed it.
When we arrived in the afternoon we had made arrangements to meet up with another couple who were also attending the wedding. We thought about going into Annan but Alison suggested getting a meal from Donna and Orhan who have recently started hiring out her kitchen for their Pizzeria business. It turned out to be a very good idea as we had lovely pizza and chips as did my daughter and her husband. The other couple had burgers and chips. Everyone of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal and it cost less than £10 per couple. It seems to be a thriving business as the phone never halted for orders whilst we were there!
I would certainly recommend The Village Inn to anyone, but people must remember its basic accommodation above a pub and not a 5* hotel. It's definitely worth what we paid for it and look forward to using it again.
