Anvil View Guest House
Ranked #5 of 9 Gretna Green B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 September 2013

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 night stay fat the Anvil House for our Wedding. We stayed in the cottage which is a stunning accomodation with a beautiful sunroom overlooking the gardens which are delightfully illuminated at night. The cottage has a good sized & well equipped kitchen combined with an excellent 3 piece bathroom. The bed was warm and comfortable and all facilities were immaculately presented and clean. Our parents stayed in rooms in the main house,which again exceeded all our expectations. The included breakfast was awesome in quality and quantity.and representative of the value for money of the package. Nothing was too much trouble for the proprieters and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Anvil View, especially if you are getting married at the Old Blacksmiths Shop, which is literally 2 minutes across the road.
Our whole wedding experience was undoubtedly enhanced by our stay.there.

Room Tip: The cottage has a well equipped kitchen which allows self catering and direct access to the garden v...

My girlfriend and I only stayed over night but it was a fantastic stay. All the staff were really helpful and friendly. We had breakfast in the dinner room which was very nice and had a good selection of food and tea and coffee. We asked the staff at the front desk how to get to certain places and they were more than willing to help. The room was perfect and a very nice welcome with chocolates on the bed and clean towels plus plenty of room. We also had a big tv and dvd player which we would have used if were too stay longer. The hotel is located near to many attractions and all the locals were friendly too. We can not wait to come back and stay longer.

very misleading web site e.g kingsize room did not mean kingsize bed, only that the room was a bit bigger than the double room which by the way was tiny. no towels changed or cleaning done during our stay.Did expect more for the price.Good breakfast but a lot of money for sausage and egg.

Room Tip: if possible stay at smiths

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
