What a great place! Very central, lovely warm room, fantastic breakfast (scrambled eggs are particularly good!) and a superb host. Thanks for all the travelling tips, Robin, and we'll definitely book with you again next time we're in Kelso.

We stayed one night whilst travelling North to Fort Augustus and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, Robin was very helpful and cooked a fantastic full breakfast. The décor in this B&B is really amazing and the bed one of the most comfortable we have stayed in. If we are ever in the area again staying here will be a must!.

We thoroughly enjoyed 2 nights at The Old Priory. Robin was a wonderful host - even provided ice bucket for champagne for my husbands birthday. Sitting room has a wonderful ambiance and very interesting curios. Was our 4th visit to Kelso; 1st visit to The Old Priory but cant wait to return. The breakfast selection is better than many hotels... More

Stayed at the Old Priory again this weekend and as usual Robin, Sue and the girls made my stay very comfortable and I was made to feel very welcome. Slept like a log. The rooms are very comfortable and it is so peaceful

My wife, two young children and I spent two extremely comfortable nights at The Old Priory.
