“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

We stayed here for our wedding, this guest hotel was just lovely and could not have picked a better place to stay. The room was very clean and perfect size. The owners were so helpful even giving me a lift into town to get my make up done for my wedding.
I would recommend this guest house to anyone and would defintely book again.

We stayed here for two nights for our Wedding and were very disappointed! Reading some of there reviews I think there must be two Anvil Hotels in Gretna! The welcome was half hearted. We had asked if we wanted a full Scottish breakfast in the morning and when we said no to Haggis and Black pudding we got a sarcastic 'oh you ARE English aren't you!! The room was tiny, the towels looked about a hundred years old and it was very basic. Breakfast on the first morning was very good but we were asked 'do you want your towels changing?? yes of course we do! Second morning was dreadful. It was like we didn't exist! We were not served in order for breakfast. The table that arrived after us were served first but the host came over to us with two plates shoving the breakfast at us saying' its yours its yours' I said we haven't ordered yet its not ours! Oh yes it is... then the lady behind said it was theirs and he turned around and said oh sorry to them...no apology to us! I ordered just poached egg, bacon and mushroom. There were 4 slices of mushroom when it eventually came and two slices of bacon that looked deep fried and were inedible!! we waited 10 mins to see if he would clear our plates so I could point this out but he cleared the other tables and never returned. When we checked out there was no mention of how was our stay or wedding........never again

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.

The breakfast was beautifully cooked with a wide range of selection, including salmon with scrambled egg! which mmmmmm my favorite! You also have a choice a continental breakfast with fresh fruit and yogurt!

overall we will be back to stay here again, was a fabulous trip.

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
