We were delighted with the excellent accommodation which far exceeded our expectations. The rooms were spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The restaurant offered a good choice of menu and the food was delicious. The staff were very pleasant and efficient. Without hesitation we would recommend this hotel.

Very nice hotel with beautiful location. Food was excellent. Rooms were nicely decorated and loads of storage space. Service during dinner was excellent. However, I felt that service during breakfast was not as good. We ordered brown toast with our breakfast but it never appeared. My wife eventually had to go and ask for it. Also, there were periods during... More

Had a smashing break in Selkirk. The staff @ the Philipburn were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They seemed genuinely interested in what we were doing. Our room was large, really warm, and fully equipped (no 6). Breakfasts were very good, and unsurprisingly, given the location, they had a grand selection of whisky!

My family and I had a superb afternoon at the Philipburn to celebrate me getting my bus pass. The staff were excellent, food was great, and the staff were very 4 year old friendly. (grandsons) I'll be back.

Booked this hotel on a Groupon deal. It was a Christmas present so I really was looking forward to the split level room. On arrival we were greeted by a lovely lady who showed us to our room. It was a beautiful room with a four poster bed. I was annoyed as it was not the split level room that... More

Our son & daughter surprised us with this weekend as part of our christmas present. Fabulous room, lovely staff & great food. Bit of a trek for us (3hr drive) but so glad we made the effort. Would like to return in the summer when the weather is warmer. Thank you to everyone who made us feel so welcome

Like others we were on a Groupon two night break, a most enjoyable experience. The hotel is on the outskirts of Selkirk in a peaceful setting. We received a warm welcome, a beautiful room and excellent food in service, in quality and in quantity. We definitely plan to return !
