My husband and I stayed here last weekend, the hotel staff were really friendly, attentive, pleasant and helpful and couldn't do enough for us. (At times they were overly attentive)
We were upgraded, free of charge to a garden room, with great views over the countryside and the gardens. We awoke to rabbits and birds just outside our patio.
The rooms are spacious, and the bed was huge and really comfortable. The room facilities were great, there was a hairdryer, iron and ironing board and the bathroom was also huge, with nice little touches such as a shoe shining kit and sewing kit, which were both used - my husband did his boots and I sewed a hole he'd put in his pocket!
This was a relaxing weekend break, which we both needed. We had a prosecco cream tea on arrival, with homemade scones - they were beautiful, warm with jam and cream. We also had an evening meal in the hotel, the food was absolutely fabulous, although a tad pricey, but hey we were on our jolly.
We also enjoyed daily breakfasts, which were also great, with an excellent selection of food, ranging from cooked breakfasts to cereals, pastries, yoghurts, fruit and toast with a selection of spreads.
There was books in the room, detailing things to do in the local and surrounding areas, which included maps. We were 16 miles away from Gretna Green and paid a visit there as well as visiting the remembrance garden in Lockerbie cemetery, which paid tribute to all who died due to the bombing of PanAm flight in 1988, this was very somber and moving.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to all my family and friends, great food, great place, great atmosphere for a nice relaxing and chill out break. less
