Faded grandeur, shabby chic it maybe but the service was second to none, you must try this amazing property, the character of the house is matched by the character of the staff & customers, there is a local following that use the bar on a lunch time, arrived on Friday past & was entertained in the bar by what must...

I organised my pre-wedding drinks and diner for my family and friends on a Friday night at Ednam House. What a bad idea! When I booked a few months before, the new owner told me that there would be renovations...welĺ, The outside looks good, but the inside looks and smell old and dingy. The so-called cocktail room is depressing. The... More

We read with some concern the appalling reviews posted recently but after a four night stay with a group of 20+ we left with a positive feeling that this wonderfully located hotel should get better. Yes, the place is in urgent need of a major upgrade but we were told that the new owners are experienced hoteliers and are committed... More

I don't usually contribute to trip advisor however I do use it before I book a hotel but on this occasion I feel I need to let others know exactly what Ednam House has come to... I have stayed at this hotel previously with my husband and friends but we usually stay at the Roxburghe Hotel however we thought we... More

The only thing in Ednam's House favour is it's location. Apart from that it was a huge disappointment! It needs a total refurb as falling apart. Interior paintwork mucky & chipped. Furniture scratched & the whole feel of the hotel is tatty & depressing. We had booked a downstairs 'river view' & what a joke for a room! Small with... More

Our first impressions of the hotel were quite good.The driveway is quite impressive and from a distance the hotel looks nice.The gardens at the back of the hotel are excellent with lovely views over the river Tweed.That is where the good points finish. The interior of the hotel is a disgrace with old tired furniture and even more tired surroundings.... More

This is one of the most disappointing reviews I have written. Ednam House is lovely, it sits right on the river bank with great views and has gorgeous gardens. You drive into the frontage area and it looks amazing, lots of parking. Then in through the imposing front doors to reception, where the staff are very helpful and friendly. We... More

Firstly the food was good but then everthing went bad. The hotel in general was tatty, chairs with no springing left in them and other furniture stained and scratched, same with the skirtings. I just felt that the place was dirty, not vintage or chic. Now to the room, number 10. How disappointing was this. Hardly enough room to move... More
