Days Inn Gretna Green M74
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Gretna Green
Reviewed 17 May 2013

I usually rate a place by the ease of parking and the friendleness of the staff. This place, just off the motorway, has both in abundance. The service station next door is basic for food but if you want a decent low cost sleep and a quick get away you can't go wrong.

Third visit here, staying for two nights, as usual staff friendly, easy check in, free parking. Room 60 was our room this time as usual very clean.not as quiet as the other rooms we stayed in,
When I went into bathroom noticed a smell like damp or blocked drains, thought maybe it was because door was closed for a while as we did not arrive till after 10pm.
Next day smell was still there, so left bathroom door open to see if that would help, but, cleaner closed the door.
Ate at eat in at service area, reception have vouchers to give 10% discount. Food very good , service was a little slow as chap doing the cooking and taking orders was on his own , but we were in no hurry.
Next morning no hot water , so I was not a happy person I do not like cold showers, had to boil kettle to be able to wash my hair.
Reported smell to reception so hopefully whatever the problem was it will get fixed .
I would still stay at this hotel as it was the first time I had to complain.

Situated just off the motorway, beside a complex of shops with a newsagent, coffee shop and fast food places. A lot of truck drivers stop of here. Check in was fine and quick. All rooms are on one floor. Old fashioned bedroom. The bathroom has the worst shower I have ever been in. Difficult to control and if your over 5 foot tall you are in trouble- my neck still hurts. Next morning breakfast was delivered to my room even though I never ordered it- I have my own theory on this! Then with the do not disturb sign on the door at 8.30 am with one knock in walks the cleaner, he said I thought you had gone! Best part of this whole experience was the 40 pounds rate for the night. There is no nice qualities to this hotel. Go elsewhere would be my advice.

Room Tip: On the second floor if there was one!

I stayed at the Days Inn Gretna one night in April to break up a journey from Staffordshire to Glasgow.
I arrived at 8.30pm and was greeted by one of the friendliest receptionists I have ever had the pleasure to come accross. He gave a chirpy welcome after a long drive.
I had upgraded to an exec room. It was plain, yet clean and contained everything I needed for my one night's stop. The bed was one of the comfiest I had ever stopped in and I found outside noise to be minimal, seeing as we were close to the Motorway.
I walked over to the services for breakfast (cereal and tea), albeit this was also offered to be delivered to my room when I checked in.
Check-out was fast and efficient with a different, yet chirpy, receptionist. They train them well here.
Will not hesitate to stop here again if needing to break up a long journey to Scotland.

At £39 for an overnight stay good value. Room cleaan and bed fairly comfortable. Had continental breakfast served in room, booked for 08:45 arrived at 08:45. Staff on reception very pleasant. Good stop over for trip to Inverness from West Midlands.
Only negative thing is the signage! Hotel hidden by bushes from road way, went passed car park entrance and had to turn round, a nice big sign sayinf "Days Inn" would be very usefull

stopped here the following night from a stay at Abington . Hotel for the money is good value although over £5 dearer than Abington . The room was clean with the usual added touches of mini fridge and trouser press . I didn't sleep as well here due to traffic noise , perhaps ask for a car park side room , i was at the back adj to the 74

Pleasant and well located budget hotel on the Scottish Border. Helpful staff, good parking. There is a room service breakfast facility for those in a hurry. Although on a motorway service area, the hotel is tucked away from the noise and hustle of the rest of the facilities.
