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.

Good old-fashioned hospitality, comfortable rooms and great breakfast. Robin was the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble for him. We will certainly return to The Old Priory when next in this area The EDJTs

We stayed three nights so the average price for our room was excellent! Our room was very clean, plenty of hot water, lots of white fluffy towels and they even had tumblers and wine glasses at the ready!! Breakfast was very good, nothing was too much trouble for our host! Call me old fashioned, but our beds were turned back... More

We stayed here for one night for my husband's birthday at the beginning of June. The whole place was lovely and homely, and our host was very friendly. The room was very well appointed, and our breakfast was delicious. Would definitely recommend it.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in Kelso at the Old Priory in order to explore the Scottish Borders. We could not have picked a better B&B. Robin is VERY knowledgable of the area, with both the historical and quirky bits; areal pleasure to have a conversation with him. The home is beautifully maintained with a nice melding of... More

My husband and I stayed overnight in this delightful place on 15 May. Great care has gone into creating an environment that is simultaneously classy and warm through choice of furniture and soft furnishings. Our ground floor room was large, clean and comfortable with shutters to shut out street noise and early morning light. We had a small dressing alcove... More

Our first trip to the UK and our first b+b could not have been a better experience. We arrived unexpectedly early but our gracious host made us immediately welcome and comfortable. We had the family suite which was spacious and elegant with a very comfortable bed and an extra room with twin beds. Lots of supplies for a hot drink... More

The location was excellent - town centre, but with beautifully stocked courtyard garden and conservatory. A home from home(but better) sitting room with games and books etc. Very comfortable bed, turned down at night, old wooden shutters closed for you. Spotlessly clean but far from clinical. Breakfast cooked freshly, or cold selection, to suit all preferences and a host who... More

We stayed here for two nights, in the enormous Family Room and enjoyed every minute of our visit. Robin was a very generous and genial host and we had the use of two public lounges in addition to our own room. There is a huge and eclectic selection of books, CDs and DVDs on hand and breakfast is cooked to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Old Priory is a gem of a house half in 1796, when it was built, and half in the modern world. We straddle the gap between Woodmarket and the old world of Abbey Row which houses Kelso Abbey. The aim is for us to provide comfort at a reasonable price, atmosphere and charm as befits the age of our home. Our Sitting Room overlooks the Old Parish Church and garden, our Family Suite is two rooms and can be used in a varity of ways. ... more   less
