“Super B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2013

We called in fairly late on, just for one night & without a reservation but it was no problem. The room was huge, beautifully appointed and had everything you could need. The en suite had the best shower ever and the whole place was spotlessly clean. Rob & Elaine were very welcoming and helpful giving us information on where to eat that night. Superbly comfy bed so much so we asked where they'd bought it! Breakfast menu was excellent and you honestly couldn't ask for anything more for the money. I would highly recommend the Kirkcroft if you're visiting Gretna.

Room Tip: Thoroughly recommend the ground floor room at the front.

We stayed for a long weekend (3 nights) . We were greeted with a cup of coffee and as I asked for a shower because I was unable to get in a bath ,they rightly assumed I was disabled and so put us in a ground floor room which was very clean and bedding and towels were of good quality. Bed itself very firm and comfortable. The couple were very thoughtful and as I only drink decafe coffee placed a little jar in the room just for me. The bathroom was really clean. Value for money and friendliness you just could not ask for more .

Stayed for one night In March. We had the twin room at the front. It was clean, spacious and warm (it was VERY cold outside). Lots of nice little touches like the biscuits and chocolates and toiletries in the bathroom. After a long drive down from the North of Scotland we were greeted like old friends and given tea and chocolate cake. The couple who own the place are really warm and friendly and they gave us plenty of tips about local pubs and eateries. After a great nights sleep we had a wonderful breakfast. If you are planning to stay in Gretna, look no further.

Stayed here for one night, our visit was indeed very pleasant, nothing was too much trouble. We arrived mid afternoon and were greeted by the owners Rob and Elaine who immediately offered us tea or coffee and cakes. We were shown to our room on the upperfloor and were delighted with it, The room was bright and very clean, well furnished and very comfortable. The owners had thought of everything to make it feel like home. Tea coffe and hot chocolate together with biscuits were on a tray,chocolates were left on the table, toiletries , a shoe shine, a comb, and a very useful sewing kit together with a small grooming kit, what more could you ask for. We were given keys to the house and told to come and go as we pleased. The beds were extremely comfortable and the breakfast next morning was just great and set you up for the day. I would thoroughly recommend Kirkcroft to anyone visiting Gretna you can be assured of very pleasant stay.

We stayed here for 2 nights for a wedding at Gretna. We had a very warm welcome,the room was spacious and very clean, breakfast was excellent and catered for vegetarians, our hosts were very friendly and helpful. The rest of our party, including my baby grandson, were staying at a nearby hotel and were refused the use of a microwave there to sterilise the babies bottles and our kind hosts gave us free range to wash and sterilise them in their kitchen. Nothing was a problem to them, we can highly recommend staying here.

We stayed one night at the lovely Kirkcroft House on a visit to Gretna. It is a former Old Post house and has some lovely period features.

We arrived very late in the evening, but the proprietor could not have been more pleasant and helpful, and as it is the only place that takes pets in the area, we count ourselves very lucky to have had it recommended to us by a local hotel.

We had a delux room at the front of the house - only £65/70 with a lovely large showeroom, and comfortable bedroom which had everything one would need; including a very useful light over the tea and coffee so you did not have to wake your partner making an early cup of tea in the morning.

Nice linen, comfortable bedding, very well equipped bathroom with lots of toiletries and a calm and pleasant colourscheme. Very good value, and ideal location.

Room Tip: Room 3 - very pleasant, but faces the road - not a problem for us though

My expectations for this hotel (based on the website) were that it would be 'nice & average', but I was very surprised - it was lovely! The rooms have been modernised; are light, spacious, and decor is more that of a boutique hotel. We arrived in the rain and the very helpful host popped the heating on for us to dry our clothes, bikes were locked in conrete shed adjoined to the house, and he even supplied ice for our aching and painful limbs. Whilst this hotel is v close to the train station, you cannot hear a thing from the hotel so we saw this as an advantage (if we bailed out of our bike ride, we could hop onto the train!). There is a large (expensive to sleep in) hotel more or less opposite, just 2 min walk, which was perfect for dinner - we arrived on an offer night, so dinner was cheap. The host of the Kirkcroft B&B was really enthusiastic about our trip and he runs a blog recording every cycle party that stops by - it's a good read! I would recommend this hotel to cyclists and people visiting Gretna Green.

Room Tip: Really enjoyed this hotel - very helpful, friendly hosts and lovely rooms.
