Days Inn Gretna Green M74
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Gretna Green
Reviewed 14 September 2013

We stayed here for just the 1 night for a wedding recently.. Paid £39 for a double room, and I have to say, I was very impressed!.. The room was spotless and very comfortable, with plenty of tea snd coffee, even biscuits!..and top marks to the staff, they were extremely friendly, which is always a bonus. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised.. Very good value and almost as good as some of the premier inns we've stayed in.

We wanted a short break away and chose this hotel as it was convenient and we always like Days Hotels. This was as good as any others in this chain although the room was quite small. The bed was very comfortable and it was quiet. We did some sight seeing in Dumfries and Galloway as well as spending a day in Edinburgh and the Borders. It was a cheap little holiday and was just what we wanted. On a very minor note, the table have strange bevels so if you out your drinks a couple of inches from the edges they just slide off on to he floor. We can't be the only ones who have put a whole cup of coffee on to the carpet!

We stayed here for two nights to attend a wedding in Gretna.
Very comfortable room, loved the bed, so comfortable. Had everything you needed, tea, coffee, tv, clean towels and plenty of space. Bathroom was nice and clean. Can't really fault it at all.
We didn't have the breakfast as we could justify spending another £6.99, plus done fellow guests said it wasn't worth it!
Very easy to find and right next to the motorway so it's easily accessible. We didn't hear the motorway at all which was brilliant.
Good stay.

Stayed here a while back but has improved greatly. Staff where very very friendly and helpful in arranging taxis to a local restaurant. Rooms where bigger than the average motorway type accommodation and benefited from free view TV and an excellent shower. Coffee and tea was plentiful and the room had a fridge and an iron so pretty much all you needed. Wifi was free (why do 4&5 star hotels charge for this when budget hotels offer it free) didn't eat at the adjacent site for dinner went to the Smithy hotel which had a very nice restaurant however the bar menu had much more choice than the restaurant menu and you can it in the conservatory looking out so was brighter and more comfortable seats too. We took breakfast in the adjacent services which was surprisingly very good good quality and had a full English for £1.99 (voucher on ther facebook page) the usual range of shops there KFC Starbucks etc and an additional themed shop selling Scottish Faye inc mint cake and shortbread etc. overall did what it needed to better than your usual travel stop hotel and very free friendly service

Around 50+ guests and wedding party stayed here for the weekend of my wedding. Yan the manager was very helpful and all the staff well mannered and friendly. The rooms are really clean and comfy and no noise could be heard from the local services. The honeymoon suite was spacious and had an amazing jacuzzi bath and fridge for our champagne. All in all we could not have asked for more.

We stayed at the Days Inn at Gretna for a week in order to visit Loch Lomond, Edinburgh and attend a wedding.
The venue was perfect for this and because it was a single storey building there is virtually no noise from the motorway - in fact the only noise we did hear were teenagers returning to the room opposite which is not the fault of the hotel!
The room was clean, the bed very comfortable and overall we were happy with the sleeping arrangements.
One aspect that did seem a bit farcical was that we had paid for the traditional English breakfast which is taken at the Eat In within the main services - no problem as the food was ok and service was quick EXCEPT that on the Tuesday morning my partner was not hungry so we asked for just porridge and toast expecting that as this was worth about £5 LESS than the cooked breakfast this would be no problem..............WRONG.!
It appears that you have to have what is on the voucher so we ended up paying extra for the porridge which is just ridiculous .......... Welcome Break need to sort this out as it did spoil our first impression despite the fact that the Eat In staff were very friendly and it was clearly not there fault...after all, if a faceless decision maker wants to dictate such nonsense then they have no power to do anything about it but surely this makes no sense...??
The next day we just ordered the two traditional breakfasts and then split it at the table so that my partner had a light bite and I was stuffed .........or rather, I ended up leaving some which is a waste and rather a poor reflection on Welcome Break if anyone was to look as it was not because the food was not good, it was just that even I could not manage 4 sausages etc !!

Other than a poor management decision re food vouchers I thought that it was a good set up and we consider using will use Days Inn again - especially this one.

Room Tip: Get one away from the coach car park as they start up early - so the rooms away from the actual serv...

Stayed 2 nights .Used nus discount then went via laterooms booking which knocks it down to half price. Family room large king sized bed with single bed also in room. All spotless for a budget stay it will be hard to beat. Total cost for room £30 a night if anyone has a nus extra card and books on their web site.
Extra tip if you use twitter follow welcome break and when ordering a breakfast show welcome break on smart phone and only pay £1.99 for full English breakfast (normally £6.99)
