For anyone who needs to be in the Kelso area for a few days, the warmth of welcome and standard of B&B accomodation offered by Duncan house could not be bettered. With the views over the Tweed and access to the riverbank park just down the alleyway, our labrador also found the setting perfect. It seemed a shame our visit... More

We have recently returned from another stay at Duncan House and again (4th visit) the owners and staff made our mini break wonderful. From the great views in our bedroom to the heartwarming breakfast we cannot fault this little gem and will certainly be returning in the future. Dave & Ang

I booked last minute with Duncan House. Luckily they could accomodate me. I really just thought all I needed was a bed for the night before I went fishing the next day. When I got there I couldn't believe I had the right place. £50 for the night! Seriously, this place is the best B&B I've ever stayed in and... More

We stayed at this charming and beautifully set out B&B. We were welcomed with open arms and truly felt that we were a returning customer from Jeff and Kate. The open views over the river Tweed on the Junction beat are truly stunning. We had probably the best breakfast that we have ever had and there have been many trips... More

Sadly we ran out of kippers this morning (Monday) and the fishmonger does not open until Tuesday so no kippers until Wednesday folks. Sorry but it's all fresh so we cannot find a kipper in the freezer and we stick with local suppliers. More

We stayed for one night at Duncan House on Monday 21st October and wished we could have stayed longer. We booked the Teviot Room, which was large and spacious with a very comfortable four poster bed and fantastic views of the river from the floor to ceiling windows.
