Stopped on our way to Blackpool.
Nice lay out and well kept,staff where very pleasant especially bill on the till (pardon the pun)
Soup was £3.99 per bowl which I thought was expensive and it seemed to lack taste.

Stopped in Gretna and picked this place at random. Ate at the bar and it was pretty much an average experience. Food was standard pub fare and beers on tap were the usual suspects. Staff were friendly enough but not sure I would eat here again.

Poor quality food and drinks at an extortionate price. Dry chewy venison, the chicken looked anemic and the haggis it was stuffed in was dry and cheap tasting. Staff off handish and snooty. The resturant smelled damp and the wedding function next door was separated with a flimsy door so we heard the du pumping away throughout out dinner.
Not good

We have went here every year for last 6 years on Mother's Day, and decided to go there today- big mistake!
The carvery had finished, but they said we could just have food as In a bar meal, so we said ok. There was 7 of us, but they made no effort to accomadate us with a large table, so we ended up sitting on 2 separate tables. We ordered the food at the bar, then the young girl brought them out and it looked like measly small portions of microwaved food ( we all ordered Turkey roast dinner ). The portions were terrible! Then when my wife's came out, the girl put it in front of her and my wife picked a hair out of the food and stated this was not hers- the girl seen this, but said nothing and just walked away. At no point after this did anyone come and ask if things were ok or if we wanted anything else. In the end, we were about to leave when a girl came over and said were the plates finished but again did not ask if everything was ok ( I think they knew by our comments and actions though that we weren't happy ).

This has never been an issue for us in the past, but this was very poor service and quality of food for somewhere we have previously associated with good service and food. It was a waste of £70- We won't be back.

- Staff were horrible not caring or organised.
- Reception weren't helpful.
- Rooms were vile to say the least not clean at all.
- Food was average and very overly priced.
- Well over booked, very packed.
- The bedroom was not comfy and squashed.
- Only brilliant thing this hotel has is Laura the wedding planner.
- WOULD NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE TO STAY AT THIS HOTEL!! APPARELLING!!
