Our Gretna Hall Hotel refurbishment continues
Today marks the start of our next phase of refurbishment at Gretna Hall Hotel
As we reach the end of our first week in 2018, there is a buzz of excitement around Gretna Green, as we launch in to the next phase of our refurbishment plans at Gretna Hall Historic Marriage House and Hotel.
As we close our doors for the next three weeks, re-opening for guests on the 24th January (with the full renovations expected to complete mid to late February), we thought this was the perfect time to share with you, what you can expect from the ‘new look’ Gretna Hall.

So what’s being refurbished at Gretna Hall?
This time last year, our focus was on our suites, which are now 6, luxurious spaces – a haven for relaxation and indulgence. This year, 2018 sees us taking on our bar, lounge, Anvil restaurant and the Criffel and Annandale function rooms.
Our heritage here in Gretna Green is extremely important to us, so whatever we do at Gretna Hall, the oldest jewel in our crown, needs to be considerate of the 18th century beauty of the building and the love and preservation it has earned in the last 208 years, as well as ensuring our guests experience the 21st century luxuries and comforts that they want when they visit; so our goal is a delicate juxtaposition of old and new, historic and modern – all keeping to our heather purple theme.
If you can’t imagine it…
Then take a look at the mood boards below. These are used by designers to give clients an overall essence of how the interiors will come together; not to be confused with an artist’s impression of the final result. We think that they give a nice idea of what type of furnishings, colour schemes and accessories will soon adorn our historic Gretna Hall hotel.
If you’ve visited us in December or over the festive period, you may have noticed some additional work going on inside our prestigious ‘Courtyard’. That’s because we are also working to add some exciting improvements to our famous ‘Coach House’ marriage room, including our reclaimed pews and the addition of a woodburning stove!
Here are some progress photos from our work on the Coach House:
