“Our wedding 22nd March 2014”
Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

Our wedding was perfect. Thank you to Claire and all the staff at the Gretna Chase. Myself and my husband Steve stayed 3 nights in the Adam and Eve suite. Loads of room for me, my bridesmaids, my two children and mum to get ready. The room had lots of light and the four poster bed was lovely. We were very pleased with the size of the bathroom and the jacuzzi bath was wonderful. All our guests that stayed at the Gretna chase were very happy with the family rooms.
Claire and the team did a brilliant job of setting the room out for the wedding breakfast and took all the stress away from me, so I could enjoy getting ready. We had a roast beef dinner which was delicious and there was so much of it. All our guests commented on how good the food was.
In the evening we had a casino night; the Gretna Chase had not had this before but it wasn't a problem and again the staff did everything they could to help. The staff were relaxed about children playing, the hotel and the rooms were clean and we will definitely be returning.
Couldn't recommend it highly enough !!
Lisa and Steve Baldwin.

Driving to Scotland, my wife and I decided to pull off the motorway rather than eat at the services. We saw the signs for the Gretna Outlet shopping visit and headed in that direction to find somewhere to eat. Almost immediately, we came upon this rather nice looking hotel sat right on the main road so swung in to see if they served food for non residents.

The Lounge Bar was quite snug, and the walls adorned with all kind of awards going back thirty years or so. There was a specials board and a full menu - all pretty reasonably priced. The bar staff were very poite and helpful and the food arrived in no time at all - despite the bar being full with diners and families (this is obviously a very popular place to eat).

Fish and chips and a couple of drinks and we were back on the road. The hotel and gardens look lovely - just a pity the weather was wet so we had to sit inside.

Couldn't fault it, and would definitely break our journey there again.

Fabulous hotel, beautiful rooms and wonderful staff, they made our 2 day stay for our wedding unforgettable, nothing was too much trouble, they made us and our 38 guests so welcome from the moment we arrived until we left, the food was delicious and the portions huge, we can't recommend this hotel enough, they made our wedding day on August 2nd 2013 truly magical from start to finish. They catered for our every need and were fantastic with the children in our party.

Gorgeous rooms!! Excellent Food !! Wonderful Staff!!

We booked eight rooms in total for our wedding party on the 10th and 11th of January 2014 and every room was spotless, luxurious a real credit to the owners.The staff were all lovely and couldn't do enough to help us. Great value for money.

The reason we chose the Chase for our wedding reception was for their reputation of the best food in the area...Our wedding meal was Fantastic, steak cooked to perfection, champagne sorbets, and the choice of sweets ant the end truely was "a cut above.." 10 out of 10.

Gorgeous gardens even for our vist in the middle of winter they were imaculately kept.
Cant wait to go back.

A Big thankyou to the Gretna Chase for making our wedding day even more special.xxxxxx

Room Tip: Adam and Eve suite is stunning, Jacuzzi bath extra comfy bed very very spacious. :-)

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Located on the Scottish / English border, Gretna Green is world famous for its runaway marriages and in the mid nineteenth century there was much rivalry between the various marriage house proprietors ... The Gretna Chase Hotel was built by John Murray, an extremely successful businessman in the marriage trade, and tenant of Allison's toll-bar. Completed in 1856, Murray built the hotel opposite the toll-bar. It proved very popular with clients, being the first in the area to offer stabling for horses. Today, The Gretna Chase Hotel offers modern amenities, but retains much of its original character. All bedrooms have pleasant views of the surrounding countryside, and public rooms are furnished in a style in-keeping with the age of the hotel. Fully licensed, privately owned and completely supervised by the owners, this small but extremely comfortable hotel offers the discerning guest a carefree informality away from city pressures. We would be delighted to show you around the hotel by appointment , to highlight all the facilities we have to offer and discuss your personal requirements. ... more   less
