A very pleasant surprise behind the subtle front door. A friendly welcome by owner Robin and beautiful room , full of antique furniture and furnishings. Delicious breakfast, well located for exploring the Scottish Borderlands. A great find and we will return--Graham & Margie

Not being a B&B veteran I was a bit worried about the idea of staying in someone's home as I actually usually like the anonymity of a hotel. From the moment I entered the Old Priory I realised that while it was a family home it was also the 'lovechild' of it's proprietor Robin. His own inimitable taste is everywhere.... More

Lovely old house with fully modern facilities. Very comfortable room. Breakfast was very special, comparable to any top hotel. Lovely fruit salad and excellent smoked haddock, yum, yum! A warm welcome. Choice of restaurants in the town for dinner. Close to the abbey which we visitedon our way out and found interesting. Couldn't be bettered.

We stayed for two nights and had a very pleasant and spotlessly clean room to the front with wonderful antique furniture. The bed was very comfortable. Robin was a wonderful host, breakfast was great with a very tasty fruit salad. We enjoyed the cooked breakfast, especially liked the bacon. As it was the Saturday night of the Border Union Show...

Delighted to return to this wonderful B & B and a warm welcome from Robin and family. Comfortable, clean, great breakfast, and every possible help given. The garden room is a lovely new addition, and the arrival of the 3 friendly greyhounds since my last visit was an unexpected delight! Cannot recommend highly enough.

We stayed for two nights and throughly enjoyed every aspect. Location, room, breakfasts, facilities including the very impressive and comfortable visitor's lounge. Our lounge at home will never seem the same! Robin was the perfect host.

The aim is for us to provide comfort at a reasonable price, atmosphere and charm as befits the age of our home.
