“Lovely dinner”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We stayed at the gables on a Travelzoo deal. Our room was comfortable and nicely presented. Our stay was on a Sunday night so the hotel was quite quiet. Our included 3 course evening meal was excellent and wine was more reasonably priced than in some of the other places we stayed. Breakfast was also good. Would stay here again if in the area.

Stayed here overnight on a business trip. Reception was welcoming with friendly staff at both check in and check out. Everything explained clearly. Room was good size and had the bonus of free WiFi, always helpful on business trips (especially as I can Facetime the family). Dinner and service was good, breakfast was very good.

All in all a good hotel with friendly staff, efficient and warm service and decent food. I would definitely recommend this hotel for business or pleasure and I would certainly stay here again. I am considering using this as a base for a golf holiday.

From the moment we arrived, both my Fiance and I fell in love with the Gables. It has a real Scottish charm. We were greeted by a lovely friendly lady on reception. We stayed in the standard room - nice size, big comfy bed and a really decent shower in the bathroom - just what we needed. Our rate included a 3 course dinner - Wow! The food was five star - definitely recommend the smoked salmon and potato salad starter! We will certainly be back in March - for our wedding :) All in all a lovely, cosy hotel with lovely staff - we would say the best hotel in Gretna.

The warm welcome we received at reception gave us an idea of what to expect - and we were not disappointed. The hotel was spotlessly clean and our room was comfortable and well appointed. Our Travelzoo deal included a three course evening meal and a full Scottish breakfast. Both were very good. For comfort, friendliness and excellent value, this hotel deserves top marks. We are planning to book another night here in the near future, which says it all!

We just got married in Gretna green and had our reception and our stay at the gables hotel. There was nothing at all to complain about. The wedding coordinators were fantastic and very Informative and every member of hotel staff were friendly and helpful. I didn't feel uncomfortable asking them for anything and when I did they helped with a smile on their face. We stayed in a 4 poster bridal suites and for the second night booked the Alyssa suite, well as soon as I saw the 4 poster bridal suites was astonished at how fantastic it was and thought I didn't need to upgrade as I was so impressed with that room, but when I did change rooms the next morning it fair to say the Alyssa suite was something else altogether, I can't express how fantastic this room is, truly amazing. I had some hesitation about getting married in Gretna as I thought because they doing weddings all the time maybe there was be some type of complacently but I was so so wrong. I was made to feel very special and I can't thank everyone at the hotel enough... If I'm being honest the ONLY thing that bugged me slightly and I mean very very slightly and I haven't marked it down because of this because its so tiny on the scale of things was on the wedding menu ordered the dessert was supposed to be dark chocolate tart with a mint and orange compote, this wasn't really accurate the mint compote was cream with a sprig of mint but no mint could be tasted and the orange was nowhere to be seen, I did ask and apparently it was laced through the tart but no one could taste it. HOWEVER the dessert was still delicious and everyone enjoyed it. I just wanted to add it to give a accurate and realistic review. Thank you so much Gables hotel. My wedding was amazing and if I could do it all again I wouldn't change a thing.

Room Tip: Alyssa suite really is worth the upgrade if its in your budget but if not the rooms are all fantasti...

We got married in Gretna and we and our wedding party stayed here. We COULD NOT be more pleased. They made us feel like we were the only ones there. The food was great, hospitality exceptional and the hotel lovely. We are going again for a first anniversary and can see us going again and again.
