Stayed at the Graham Arms hotel for one night due to everywhere else be booked up for weddings at nearby Gretna. First impressions weren't great. Couldn't access the hotel immediately as three drunks from the adjoining pub had blocked the entrance. First room was declined as it was miniscule and had no en suite. Second was better but needed TLC. Excess mould around the window frames and parts of the shower cubicle. Poor quality mattresses that had springs sticking out the side and would have been more suited for children use. The shower needed to be run for five minutes to get anything resembling hot water. Meals were surprisingly good, although the speed that they arrived clearly showed that they had been pre-cooked and warmed up. This is not a quiet hotel, noise from the bar, courtyard where smokers congregate & when the brewery delivers kegs at 7am ensured a disrupted sleep. Staff are friendly and the room is cheap. The recession is clearly hitting places like this and the money isn't available to bring it up to scratch. Dont quite understand the glowing reports as for another £15 we had a far superior room and experience the following night nearby. If a budget traveller this hotel will suffice, however those expecting a finer experience will be disappointed.
