We were trying to sleep at 11.30 and were kept awake by the shouting and singing of the guests in the adjacent rooms. The...

Dear Baragunta, I am deeply saddened to read this review. It is not anything like I want to see.

My wife decided to take me for a meal to celebrate my birthday and chose a local (ish) hotel that we had not been to before. We have visited all of the bigger hotels in Gretna and Lockerbie and found them wanting to some greater or lesser degree but not tonight. The Gables has proven to be an oasis in...

We got married here on February 15th after booking the wedding through Wowcher. The hotel staff were fantastic throughout. They kept in touch regularly before the wedding, confirming arrangements by email and phone. When we arrived, the staff were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us.
