We have just returned from getting married in Gretna green and everything was perfect!!
My husband and I stayed in the bridal suite at the mill forge for 2 nights which was amazing!! The room was extremely spacious,well decorated and heated and the little touches such as champagne and chocolates were really sweet. Our family also stayed at the mill forge, all experiencing a comfortable, clean room and a very nice breakfast.
We had our reception at the mill forge after getting married at the anvil hall. All of the staff were so helpful and willing to do anything to make our stay memorable. The way they decorated the room was beautiful, the meal was delicious and all of the staff were so friendly. They made our stay absolutely perfect, we couldn't of asked for more on our special day!!

We attended a wedding the weekend before Christmas 2012. Something we had all been looking forward to for some time. Although the occasion overall was not spoiled (it was a lovely, well organised little ceremony and an extremely happy occasion for all the family), I feel slightly ripped-off by the room tarriff (£90 per night for a standard double room, and £130 a night for a family room), and even more so by the prices charged in the bar. OK, it's a special occasion, and many Hotels do charge inflated prices for alcohol, but I feel that the Mill Forge know that they have you by the s & c's. They know that everyone will be celebrating and buying alcohol, so they think they can charge whatever they wish! The £4 a pint is annoying enough, but nearly £5 for a small gin & tonic is rediculous, and £2.80 for a pint of lime & soda water is just sheer exploitation..!! On a positive note, the ground troops (staff) work very hard and are extremely friendly. On the other hand, I wished the reception staff a Merry Christmas when we checked out, but only received a mumbled reply, without any eye contact. We left with mixed feelings..happy for the occasion, but with an extremely bruised wallet..!!!

Room Tip: Rooms 1 - 8 are very close to the M74, and the traffic noise is constant. We had rooms 15 and 16 (standard doubles), which are on the top side and much quieter.

Well we went back to the mill forge after one year of getting married we decided to stay there for our first years anniversary and did I think it was as wonderful and would it meet my expectations as it couldn't could it?? well unfortunately it did not it was even better than my expectations going back the staff were so amazing we had a meal that night in a secluded area and it was so perfect the ambience the refreshing attitude and general pleasantness of everyone we met is just amazing and as a business you should be proud of not one member of staff but all of them, from the young ladies who served our meals Nicki and the lady at the bar who made suggestions for us to spend our days to Katie at breakfast it was just perfect, the cleanliness of the rooms and the people who clean the chapel and cleaning all the confetti up for the next bride yeah I spied the cleaning up process which you do not really about on the day!!! For me my weekend was amaze balls and the lucky brides looked great and I was so jealous I wanted to put my dress on again and dance the night away, thank you again for my stunning soft and ultra comfy bed, soft towels , clean rooms amazing food yummy and just generally guys you being a team of people who create an atmosphere and ambience of kindness and nothing is too much trouble or hassle!!!! Have a wonderful Xmas and thank you sooooooooooooo much xxxxx

We have just come back from getting married 22nd October ... And have to say it was a perfect location, venue and wedding. From the reception, bar, restaurant, house keepers and co-ordinators all helped to make our day a special, long lasting memory!
The bridal suite was amazing, spacious and ideal... The chapel was lovely... And the meal and service was outstanding.
I highly recommend the mill forge for a wedding and the wee extras the staff make do make it so perfect!
Thank you!

Stayed her on a leisure break . The room was lovely and clean . The rooms are in a courtyard,very private individual front doors , all on one level . You can drive up to the front door on some of them . We had a evening meal there and all the staff were very friendly . Could not fault a thing and would certainly recommend . We will be returning again i am sure .
