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.

A great weekend in a beautiful house, such a treat! Felt so grand yet so welcoming with an easy atmosphere and feel about the place, it felt like home and I wish it was!

We've just returned from a weekend at The Old Priory and cannot recommend it highly enough, its probably one of the best B&Bs we've ever stayed in.

My Husband and I stayed for a two night week-end break at The Old Priory at the beginning of November. We had stayed in March this year and enjoyed the comfort of the accommodation and Robin's hospitality so much that we would not think of booking anywhere else despite having stayed elsewhere in Kelso on several previous occasions.

We came for the races and The Old Priory was the icing on the cake. Lovely room, good size with traditional wood furniture and scrupulously clean. The bed was very comfy, the en suite was a little small, but with plenty of towels. Breakfast was also first class in a homely dining room. Try the marmalades, jams and curds! Robin... More
