Stayed here for three nights after reading the hotel's website which was very positive and promising. The suggestion was that past imperfections had been dealt with. It sounded like the owners had made a real effort to turn around a business which was struggling and the photos and description of the premises suggested it was just what we were looking... More

Accommodation was clean and warm. The bed was huge which made the room a little cramped but still fine for a 2 night stay. Food was ok and always hot. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Woul definitely stay there again.

While visiting a friend she recommended the Traquair arms hotel. She had previously been there and said it was great food.staff are very friendly. The dining area is separated from the bar.it is very good value for your money. The hotel is a near the road but its quiet. They even have a log and coal burner for the cold... More

The accomodation was basic but acceptable for one night. The shower in my room had two settings, scald or cold. The food was pretty poor; seven of us ate, one meal was sent back, which was taken off the bill. None of the others recevied complement although they were edible. That side of things really needs attention to improve in... More

We had a 2 night stay as a Birthday Celebration. 2nd time we have stayed here. The service, food and beers were excellent. The hardworking staff couldn't be more helpful. The food was exceptionally good and timeous considering the number of covers the team had to cope with. Christian, the manager, runs the place like clockwork. A very friendly place.... More

We stayed for two nights over a weekend. It is well situated for a bit of touring. The room was good. The menu was very good and the food we ordered was excellent. There was a good selection of ales and both staff and locals in the bar were very welcoming.

Over the last ten or so years my wife and I have had the odd bar meal here in passing by on one of our regular 'borders tootles'. We have also stayed here before but that was away back in 2006. The hotel overall image is that of being comfy and friendly albeit a little outdated in some of its... More

We stayed here using a groupon voucher for a weekend in January. The voucher was a good deal and the hotel was ideal for accepting dogs. The hotel room itself is spotlessly clean and a good size for two humans and a small dog. What made the weekend was how friendly everyone was and how welcomed the dog was. There... More

We enjoyed three different meals in the evenings during our three night stay. Each time the food was really good, freshly prepared and with excellent service. Fortunately the coal fire was on in the bar making it welcoming as the rest of the hotel was chilly. We were staying in a one bedroom cottage to the rear of the hotel.... More

I'm reviewing the bar / restaurant area rather than the hotel and have only good things to say. We popped in here for lunch last week as some of our party had just finished the Selkirk to Innerleithen walk. We were all cold and hungry and, despite turning up 10 minutes before the kitchen closed for the afternoon, were welcomed... More
