Positive Reviews

Very friendly and helpful staff.

The staff at Smiths at Gretna Green staff are found to be welcoming and helpful. They are professional and happy to go the extra mile to ensure that guests have an enjoyable stay.

Excellent breakfast.

Guests enjoy their breakfast at Smiths at Gretna Green. They say that it is tasty with plenty of choice available, including for special dietary requirements, and that the full English (even though they are in Scotland!) is nice and hot.

Kids are kept amused.

The family rooms come in for praise as they help to make the kids feel as welcome as the adults. Rooms have a TV and DVD player, while the children’s bunk beds have their own lighting. Better still, the bunk beds have the option of adding a Playstation so that the little ones don’t get too bored during their stay.

Negative Reviews

Rooms not clean.

Some guests have suggested that their room is not as clean as they would like. Guests have noted excess levels of dust, carpets that needed hoovering, and bathrooms that could do with being given a good scrub.

Busy wedding hotel can be noisy.

As you might expect of a hotel next door to ‘The Old Blacksmith’s Shop’ in Gretna Green, this hotel is popular with wedding parties. However, this is not necessarily good news for everybody. Some have complained that children may be unsupervised and run unchecked around the hotel, including the bar and restaurant, causing annoyance to those trying to have a quiet evening.

Sometimes appear short-staffed.

As already noted, staff are described as being great on the whole. However some guests report that Smiths At Gretna Green can appear light on staff at times, which means guests have been left waiting around to be attended. This has not gone down well.
