“Wedding Package”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

We booked a special wedding package with Gretna Wedding.com which included the wedding at the Smithy's and a two night stay at Smith's Hotel. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special, out luggage was taken off us and we were taken into the lounge for cocktails while our room was prepared for us. When we finished cocktails we were taken to the room where there was a bouquet, roses on the bed, canapes and chocolate covered strawberries. Candles were lit in the room with a flame effect fire and music playing; shortly after we arrived in the room a bottle of champagne was brought to the room for us. A very wonderful start to our wedding. The food on the first evening in the restaurant was delicious my partner, now my husband, said it was the best meal he had eaten in the whole of his life, doesn't say a great deal about my cooking but I do have to agree with him. The day of our wedding we had a very romantic wedding at the Smithy, I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet personal wedding, and when we returned to the hotel the staff in the restaurant had arranged a special table for us for dinner in an alcove, specially decorated for our wedding meal, it made the day even more special. The staff were all lovely, very efficient, very friendly.

Room Tip: The room we stayed in was beautiful and the whole hotel appeared to be of the same quality

Just returned from an overnight stay at Smiths having been treated by a friend for my birthday. The hotels location is excellent really easy just off the motorway. Staff are all excellent very welcoming on reception and in the bars and restaurant. Had treatments in the Day spa which were the best I had ever had really professional and relaxing. Bedrooms are a really good size I was lucky to have one with a balcony overlooking the blacksmiths at Gretna so spent time sitting out in the sun watching couples get married. The food in the restaurant in the evening was really special. Most unusual menu and superb quality. Try the fairground themed dessert really amazing. Good quality breakfast the following morning ended a perfect stay and great value room prices.

Room Tip: rooms facing the car park are quieter and its worth paying for an upgrade with a balcony in the summ...

A girly weekend catchup for your birthday, very nice too! Champagne chocolates, spa treatments, good food and gin and tonics? Or was it a quiet catch up over a latte? Hmmm, option one me thinks. Glad you had a great time. Do come back soon, regards, Darren

My daughter had her wedding here on 12th April 2012.We had a long journey from Wales but were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. There were 18 of us including 3 young ones , and had an excellent bar meal in the evening. Some of the rooms looked a bit dated but were clean and adequate,and my daughter's Rose Suite was fab!! The next morning we all had a lovely breakfast .Some of us went shopping, some had hair dos , some were made up and all were happy with the hair and beauty treatments .The wedding co ordinator was superb and kept my daughter and her partner updated throughout the process.We were all transported to Anvil Hall which was a perfect venue. with the piper and "Sandy" who conducted the service making our day. Back at the Smiths we had a wonderful wedding breakfast in a perfect room,with our own garden for photos . The official album actually arrived the day after we arrived home !! We have all been to big wedding receptions but this was all so intimate and perfect. The Manager ,the reception staff, the co ordinator and all other staff went beyond their duty to ensure we all enjoyed.. After another good breakfast we left the hotel with lovely memories.

Pat. I remember your party well, who could forget a Welsh takeover of our bar. Judging by your review you appeared to have a very busy day. Really glad you enjoyed your time with us and that your daughter liked the Rose Suite - it is most certainly a popular choice. We are currently half way through a full rooms refurbishment having been open now for 7 years, so this will enhance your next stay even further. All the best for now Pat, best regards, Darren.

Just returned from Gretna Green as we are looking around for a wedding venue (after 20 years together we have finally decided to get married!).

Smiths hotel itself was faultless, the food was exceptional and the service excellent. A special mention toTim who works in the bar area for providing loads of information on the area, hotel, getting married in the hotel and the services they and suppliers in the area provide.
Will be back, well done Smiths x

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the hotel away from the motorway.

my mum and stepdad just got married here! it was an amazing experience it was the perfect day. the only faults are we were (me and my boyfriend) put in an adjoining room next-door to kids on the second night (noisy) plus the cars on the motorway keeping us awake. apart from that it was well worth the money! it is beautiful, staff are friendly and attentive, expensive food but worth it very posh! Quite small portions for the more expensive menu but was a lovely treat for the wedding meal with my mum. My mum had the wedding package it was extremely nice! champagne, roses, flowers, canapés, cocktails, chocolate covered strawberries! Bath and shower in rooms, twins pushed together make a great sized bed! with one big quilt cover. lovely. breakfast was amazing a nice cooked breakfast buffet with pastries, fruit, toast, yogurt, croissants, etc etc yum yum! We had our hair and make up done for the wedding in "spoilt" at the hotel extremely impressed.

Room Tip: choose a room at the front far away from the motorway! :)
