“Its mint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2013

Me and my wife only stayed one night, but it was a great experience. The bedrooms are very clean and tidy and are well presented. It was the only time I have actually slept peacefully in a guest house.
The pillows are nice and comfy, usually I don't sleep because either the bed is too hard/soft and the same with the pillows. But they have it just right.
We were welcomed as if we were old friends Brenda is a lovely host and made us feel at home.
The breakfast is BRILLIANT it is well worth having and they do not skimp on the portions and will give you what you want, THEY DON'T MAKE YOU STICK RIGIDLY TO THE MENU.

I would highly recommend staying there if you go to Gretna.

If I was to be very picky and I mean this is picky, As it is near to the M6 there is a lot of traffic noise when the window is open. But being close to a main road is a bonus for a traveller.

Room Tip: We were in room 2 and could not find fault

Excellent accommodation throughout. Very clean, towels and bedding changed on a daily basis, choice of cold or hot breakfasts including traditional Scotish with Haggis. Lovely family ran guesthouse where the staff make you feel very special. We stayed here on a 5-day trip and got married on day 2. 2min walk to the Smiths resaurant for great dining and 1min walk to the famous Blacksmith's Shop. Thank you for a perfect stay. Extremely highly recommended; a must stay if you are in the area. We will be back!!!!

Booked one night at the Anvil View guest house at the last minute as we were going to a wedding in Gretna unexpectedly.What a lovely place,spacious,bright clean rooms.Toiletries provided and big fluffy towels.More like an expensive hotel than a guest house! The owners were most welcoming and breakfast was good too.Very reasonably priced for a double room and just across the road from the Blacksmiths shop.Would recommend highly.

We stayed for 1 night in the Anvil View in the deluxe room. It's the perfect room and certainly good value for money considering you get a jacuzzi bath. Spacious and lovely views. Would highly recommend this for a quiet night away or for newly weds. The perfect night.

This is situated opposite the world famous blacksmiths shop and was the ideal location for us for the night before our wedding. The owners are very friendly and helpful. On arrival we were offered to upgrade to the delux room which was definitely worth it. A beautiful room with lots of space and a fantastic jacuzzi bath. The breakfast in the morning was also fantastic. We ate at the smiths hotels which was only a short walk away and great for a nice meal and a few drinks.

Room Tip: If you want something special then definitely spend on the delux room

We stayed here during our wedding at Gretna Green and received a wonderful and friendly welcome from Brenda and Roy-Our hosts were very helpful but not intrusive.
We stayed in the king size room and had plenty of space and comforts (we managed a sneak peek at the other rooms which were equally as lovely)
Bed was super comfy and the ensuite bathroom was lovely.
Breakfasts were cooked to perfection every morning and although we were the only couple staying at the time nothing was too much trouble, even our fussy vegetarian ways!
We would most happily stay here again when we next visit! The perfect location for a wedding at the Blacksmiths old shop as it was 'just across the road' which many b&b's in the area state but actually are not!
