“Excellent stay”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

We had a lovely one night stay here which included an evening meal, as part of a voucher deal and were very impressed. We had been upgraded to a four poster bedroom when we arrived which was very well appointed.
The evening meal was excellent, and as good as we had ever had at any top class restaurant. We will definitely look out for deals again. Note, this hotel is very well placed for the Gretna shopping stores, as well as for weddings.

We had a one night stay here with evening meal included. We were made very welcome and the service was excellent. The hotel has a pleasant ambience and a very large car park. The heating system is very effective indeed.The room was (largely) clean and very comfortable (we are very fussy) but the food was a bit too rich for our taste. Nonetheless we would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others, especially if you like rich, creamy fare.

We booked here at the very last minute after booking the other really well known wedding hotel in Gretna (shan't mention any names!). Unfortunately the first hotel wouldn't allow check in before 3pm even though we were getting married and had to be at the Famous Blacksmith Shop at 3.45pm! From the moment I contacted The Gables I was soooo glad that this had happened. And when we arrived I was even more glad! The reception staff were very helpful and friendly, the room was beautiful (we had been upgraded to a four poster bridal room which was such a lovely thing for them to do) and there was champagne on ice waiting for us. There was a huge bathroom with corner jacuzzi bath and big double shower. When we returned back to the hotel afterwards we enjoyed a glass of champagne and headed to the bar. Again, a very friendly welcome, bar with roaring fire and some very friendly guests. The meal in the restaurant was great, but for some reason I had less appetite than usual, the nerves from earlier in the day must have affected me! Breakfast the next morning was fantastic, again a really friendly atmosphere, not at all stuffy. Great selection and a fantastic cooked breakfast. Previous reviews have said it all, beautifully decorated hotel, spotlessly clean, brilliant staff - it was faultless! If we go back to Gretna again we will definitely choose this hotel!

Found the Gables quite by chance - attending a family do in Gretna. Everything is just as you would wish, the staff are friendly and efficient, the decor is warm and welcoming, the hotel is absolutely pristine, and our room was immaculate. The restaurant menu is not extensive, but will cater for everyone, and the food was out of this world (worthy of a first-class restaurant, but at a sensible price).

Room Tip: We stayed in no. 38 - away from the road, amazingly comfortable four-poster bed, and the bathroom...

We have just returned from a one night special deal at the hotel. This included a 3 course meal, and breakfast for two. We have to say, that everything was first class, and excellent value for money. The Staff and Management should be proud of the Hotel, and the welcoming experience it provides to its guests. We would love to return in the future. Well done.

Room Tip: We were at the rear of the hotel, on the ground floor. we expected to get a sub-standard room, but t...

As a party of 4, we had our evening meal at the Gables yesterday, and we would highly recommend it. We all had different starters, and each was excellent; fresh, well-cooked, and well-presented. For main course we would recommend the sea bream; ours was lovely and portion size was more than ample (and presentation was again first-class). We were too full for desserts - but made the effort - and were glad we did!

Service was fast, friendly and efficient. (We had a drink in the cosy bar prior to our meal, and service was equally excellent there). Both the Bar and the Restaurant were excellent value-for-money.

There is plentiful off-street parking.

We regularly visit the Outlets at Gretna; from now on a meal at the Gables will be part of our visit.
