We had stayed at Alexander House about 3 years ago and found it very satisfactory. We stayed again on about 6th September, and found it equally satisfactory: very clean - and equally friendly with a wonderful breakfast. Will certainly stay there again!

We stayed for 1 night whilst visiting Gretna. The location was excellent and very close to all attractions. The room was very small but had everything you required. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was all cooked well.

Arrived later than expected after a harrowing journey from Hayling Island. We received a warm welcome when we finally arrived, before hurrying down to the local hostelry for a bite to eat. The room, although small, was very clean and the bed comfortable. The breakfast was superb - would recommend the smoked salmon and scrambled egg! We used Alexander House...

Arrived mid-evening and got helped with parking my motorbike before being shown to a pre-booked, comfortable double room. After a very good nights sleep, breakfast was served in a cosy, wee dining room with cereal and delicious cooked breakfast available. A reasonable rate for an excellent overnight stay with single occupancy rates available. I would definitely recommend this B&B to...

Friendly, clean and excellent. Really good breakfast. Looked after a group of tired cyclists well, even cleaned our kit. When we arrived they came to the door with a bottle of water each which was life saving. Just a great place.

I could not fault this hotel at all, spotlessly clean, excellent breakfast, great hosts, good location, everything you could want for a short break, very handy for Gretna gateway outlet village. Cath recommended where to eat/drink which was very helpful. Would go again without hesitation.
