- Cocktail Bar – 2020 Winner
Sister Hotel, Smiths Hotel, is Awarded Wedding Hotel of the Year & Cocktail Bar National Winner 2020
Congratulations to all of the team at Smiths Hotel! Your dedication and hard work is well-deserving of this fantastic achievement.
THE AWARDS CEREMONY
This year’s Scottish Hotel Awards ceremony was a bit different due to the current circumstances, however organisers were keen to celebrate Scotland’s hard-working hotel and wedding teams and, instead, the awards were announced on the Scottish Hotel Awards official Facebook page, throughout the evening of Sunday 23rd April (what would have been the 17th Annual SHA Gala). All nominees were invited to join in raising a glass of wine or a dram of whisky at home and even host their own Zoom video party!

Helping you to plan the perfect wedding in Gretna Green this March 2018
Are you can already engaged, with your wedding planning folder (yes we know you have a crazy scrapbook or at least a Pinterest board), bursting at the seams? Or are you still waiting, (im)patiently for your other half to ask that all important question (we’re only a couple of years off another Leap Year)? Whatever your situation, our annual wedding fayre extravaganza, this coming March really is a wonderful day out, and a chance to get to know Gretna Green.
The whole day has been carefully planned to give you the chance to visit all three of our hotels and the Famous Blacksmiths Shop visitor centre. You will have the opportunity to experience everything that the North West wedding scene has to offer, as well everything that Gretna Green have to offer; from our gorgeous, 3 and 4-star hotels and wedding venues, to our wedding planning team, kilt hire and wedding favours to name a few!
You will start your day at Gretna Hall, our newest addition to Gretna Green, where you will be met with a big Scottish welcome for registration. Your next stop will be Smiths, our 4-star, boutique hotel, just around the corner, where all of our exhibitors will be ready and waiting to share with you their wedding treats and talents!
The third stop, is just a few short paces across the road from Smiths, to the Famous Blacksmiths Shop; in all its historic and romantic wonder! As you step through the doors, you will instantly feel the tingling buzz of over 250 years of history, and as you walk in the footsteps of the thousands of runaway couples before you, to reach the famous anvil; don’t forget to touch it for good luck in love.
In the afternoon, you will make your way to our third and final hotel and the fourth stop on our tour – here at Greens Hotel. This is where you will find our demonstrations, including “how to wear a kilt”.
All through the day, you will have the chance to meet and chat with our experienced wedding planning team and maybe even get a chance to meet with the Houston family themselves in our VIP room; as well as sample a selection of dining treats from all of our hotels and, of course, take home a wonderful goody bag to remind you of your day at Gretna Green!
To make things even better in 2018, we are giving you the option to pre-register; to allow you, even more, time to explore and enjoy Gretna Green on the day. If you would like to be the first to hear when pre-registration opens, then please sign up for our wedding fayre newsletter below!
