The price for our stay, during the Scott clan reunion, was double the usual rate and when I arrived and added my wife to the reservation the extra breakfast cost us $60 a day. The breakfast was not worth $10 much less $60, as sunnyside up means hard cooked eggs. Our room also had a dangerous narrow circular staircase from... More

Dear jgscott, You booked via the Best Western extranet a fully flexible tariff for 1 person in a deluxe twin room. On arrival you informed us that the room was actually for 2 persons therefore the tariff was amended to reflect double occupancy not single occupancy. We appreciate our split level rooms do not suit everyone and you were shown... More

Stayed for two nights while exploring the borders country. Located slightly out of town in its own grounds thus offering a peaceful stay. We did book a superior room which is superb but is on two levels, the bedroom being upstairs while the bathroom is downstairs. As my wife is a frequent visitor during the night, we felt that this...

Our family stayed recently in one of the little cottages that they have onsite and it worked absolutely perfectly for us. With a 2 bedroom house, bathroom and convenient kitchen, it was a total score for us. It's way too pricey to get 2 hotel rooms, (as we have a toddler) but this really had it all. Breakfast was also... More

This hotel is just amazing. I've stayed a couple of times and it just gets better with every stay. Just as good as any 4-5 star hotel. The staff are wonderful & the food is out of this world. A wonderful find in a beautiful part of the UK. Please try this hotel when you are on holiday in the... More

We have just returned from a 4 night stay in this lovely Hotel. It is well situated for touring the Borders. On arrival we were impressed with the grounds which were very well tended, as was the Koi pond which we enjoyed looking at every day. On checking in we were made to feel welcome and that set the standard... More

An excellent hotel, which we found to be perfectly situated for touring the Borders. Our four-poster bedroom was delightful, with an incredibly spacious en-suite bathroom. The food was delicious, with pleasant, professional service. We definitely hope to return in the very near future - we didn't want to leave!

II would recommend that the CEO's of some of our supposedly leading chain hotels spend a night here and see how an hotel should be run. From the moment you drive in you will be impressed by the immaculately kept grounds, not a weed in site. This impression stays with you, as you enter the spotless reception area. The public... More

This hotel is set in a lovely spot. It feels like you are in the country with sheep and cows literally a stones throw away. The gardens are spectacular and include an outside seating area. The hotel obviously puts a lot of effort into the grounds. In reality you are a 5 minute drive from Selkirk. Rooms are spacious and... More
