The brilliant staff at solway lodge

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 Oct 2012
We came up to gretna green for my daughters wedding we did not have no where booked for a meal after the wedding. We were recommended Solway Lodge by the receptionist at our hotel.We had 23 adults and 4 children in our party and the staff at solway sorted us the most beautiful private room for our party, they even went as far has putting serviettes and flowers on the tables in our daughter colour scheme. Nothing was too much trouble, we even went back at the evening and they put tables together for us. These people were brilliant and we highly recommend Solway for a visit. we would definately go again. Thankyou to all the staff.

At 8 of October we had an after wedding lunch in the restorant. We liked the food, there was a choice of the size of the meals, the service was good. It was in the beggining of our tour around Scotland and i didn't realize that it was the only place in Scotland, were I was able to use free WiFi, without any registration, only with a password. The atmosphere in the restorant was better than the bar.

We stayed at the Solway Lodge on the 26 and 27 September 2012,as it was the venue we had chosen for our wedding reception. The staff could not do enough for us. Both the wedding dinner and the evening buffet was excellent, and the breakfasts were good too. All our rooms were comfy, and clean, and the hotel itself had a wonderful atmosphere. A special thanks to Ian for all his help and advice, and the wonderful "Harley" cake, and to all the other members of staff who worked so hard to make sure that we had everything we needed a big "thank you". It made our stay so memorable.

Visited the Solway Lodge by accident yesterday.I didn't stay at the hotel so can only comment on the short time i spent there in the restaurant but felt a review was necessary! I was travelling up to Edinburgh from Blackpool with my mother and we decided to look for something to eat, Soo glad i did! The meal was outstanding. I had the Roast duck... absolutely beautiful. Also made to feel very welcome by the staff. A very lovely girl who served us straight away. Served quality food without a long wait. The place had such a warm, friendly atmosphere. We even commented on how nice the toilets were! Although we didn't stay for long. I really hope to visit again in the future. Keep up the good work!

Just had a fantastic family sunday lunch meal for 12 of us mix of kids and adults, meals were excellant, although when asking for the dessert menu we were asked for our order almost within 2 mins of being given the menus!!!!!!, the atmosphere and staff are brilliant although the old man there could do with a humour transplant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room tip: ask for a room within the main building.
