Warm and welcome from the owner who is really enthuastsic about his superb property . Shown the facilities and give a great insight to the town . Shutters were closed and curtanis drawn when we returned in from our meal out . Robin though we would not sleep with the street lighting just out side our window .

Had a great Easter weekend here. Room was a great standard and the sitting rooms large with a great library. There was lots of advice and suggestions on what to do and where to go. Breakfasts pretty fantastic too. Robin looked after us very well. Thanks again for the woolly fish ;-) Look forward to returning

I don't know where to start but it was fabulous. The room was HUGE and decorated with all antique furniture. The bathroom was as large as one room I stayed in at another B&B. The lounge was truly deluxe as was the sun room. Great yard in the back to loaf and read. Robin was a truly perfect host, very... More

A late decision made to stay overnight in Kelso when attending local race meeting. Paid just under £100 when other local hotels were asking £150 - £190. Proved excellent value therefore and this beautiful, traditional house provides very good spacious facilities and a great breakfast from very personable owner. Private parking to rear of property. B&B located smack centre of... More

Friends in Kelso recommended we stay here when visiting them for a few nights. Very conveniently located off the main square but the room was surprisingly quiet and very well appointed. The ensuite was also modern, adding to comfort & privacy. A 1 minute walk to the CBD with back street parking, this was very convenient. The silk duvet got... More

Robin provides just the right amount of help, not too much and not too little. The facilities are delightful and the advice, assistance and thoughtfulness hit the spot. I particularly enjoyed breakfast time. Travelling alone, I felt right at home in the dining room with a wonderful home cooked meal providing a fabulous start to the day. Very highly recommended.

We have stayed several times at the Old Priory and it is always excellent. The house is warm and welcoming, with a delightful lounge to relax in after a day exploring the beautiful Borders countryside. The Old Priory is perfectly situated in the centre of Kelso, (which is a lovely Border town) it has a variety of really good restaurants,... More

We stayed for one night and would highly recommend The Old Priory. Excellent location. Beautiful house which is full of atmosphere. The owner is so welcoming and helpful. We had the family suite which is spacious and beautifully furnished. Lovely comfortable bed. Splendid breakfast.
