We stayed here on a stopover on a long journey. Friendly welcoming staff, clean and warm rooms and great meal in the restaurant. Everyone was commenting on how nice the place is. The hotel has a lovely, friendly feel to it not like so many hotels these days.

My Husband and I wanted to renew our Wedding vows (we've been married 15 years) and thought running off to Gretna to do so would be romantic. We found The Gables Hotel through a deal website but ended up booking direct with the hotel. I was impressed from the start how concerned they were to make sure everything was right...

Staff were extremely friendly and helpful from the start. The room was lovely and clean and very well maintained. Had dinner in the bar and even though they were catering for 3 weddings the food arrived quickly,was hot and delicious. Breakfast was also very enjoyable, The only thing I could have wished for was an 11 o'clock check out instead...

Stayed here for two nights for a wedding in September with several family members and, in general, enjoyed it. We arrived late on a Friday night and the girl who checked us in was friendly and welcoming. In fact all the staff we came into contact with were nice.
