Gretna Green Confirms Twitter Speculation Regarding Greens at Gretna Hotel is False
- Greens at Gretna Hotel is still owned and operated by Gretna Green Ltd
- Hotel is being used as colleague accommodation
- Hotel currently closed for guests and is set to re-open as a bar & restaurant around Spring 2023
We’ve recently become aware of some unfounded speculation circulating on Twitter that our Greens at Gretna hotel has been taken over by a third party who are using it to house hundreds of illegal immigrants.
Gretna Green is a local, family-owned business that’s been at the heart of the Gretna Green and Gretna communities since 1885. As a 5-star wedding, tourism and retail destination, we have a portfolio of hotels which includes Smiths at Gretna Green, Gretna Hall Hotel and Greens at Gretna.
We can confirm the social media speculation is in fact not true. Gretna Green Ltd still owns and operates Greens at Gretna Hotel and it’s being used as colleague accommodation for a handful of hard-working colleagues who apply their valued hospitality skills and delight guests in our Smiths and Gretna Hall hotels.
We can also confirm, while Greens at Gretna is closed to guests as a hotel, we will be re-opening it as a bar and restaurant around Spring of 2023, welcoming guests from the local community and further afield.
We look forward to continuing to provide our local communities with high-quality accommodation, attraction and dining experiences, and employment opportunities throughout 2023 and beyond.
