We only stayed one night (thank goodness) we can't name our hosts because they didn't introduce themselves! The bedroom was tiny and grotty, the bathroom was so tiny and the shower rose had to be held by hand as the fixture was worn out, just cereal and milk then a very ordinary breakfast ,not value for your money.

Stayed here for a week or so, room was terrible, grotty bobbly sheets, dirty sides, fusty smelling towels and linen. Furniture in the roomed was marked, scuffed and shabby. Service there: They didn't want to know, not particularly fussed about my comments about the room or some of my queries. Really wouldn't recommend this stay to anyone, I've probably stayed... More

We stayed here for one night on the recommendations of trip advisor but wouldn't count it as one of the highlights of our trip. Efficient but not really friendly staff. They get the job done but not with a smile. The room was small and could use a complete overhaul but served our purposes. The bathroom hot tap is loose... More

A great reception, albeit we arrived unbooked quite late. Best for my oldtimer a parking space offroad in a closed yard at the back of the property. The room was spacious and well equipped with enough plugs for reloading all the electronic gadgets a modern tourist carries with him. Non-cooked (me) and cooked (wife) Breakfast was adequate, however I miss... More

This is a great place to spend a holiday, there was lots of space and very comfy beds and is in a great, central location and good parking areas. The owners were friendly and gave us great tips for places to visit and eat. A good selection was offered for breakfast; from cereal to a full English/ vegetarian breakfast.

We stayed here for 1 night on a cycling trip. We had a twin room that was adequately sized, clean and comfortable. We were given good advice on restaurants and where to find them. After a good night's sleep the breakfast was excellent. Bikes were locked away overnight. This is a really good place to stay if you're doing the... More

Adequate room and a good location in Berwick-upon-Tweed. Pam is friendly and cooks a wonderful Scottish breakfast. The room was ensuite (Taviot) but the decor and appointments (including bath towels) were well used and could stand updating. WiFi struggled and only worked marginally if we kept our room door open.

I think our opinion of this B&B suffers from comparison with the three we stayed at immediately before. The decor seemed a bit tired and things like a loose shower head in the room needed attending to. Not everyone wants a fry for breakfast, excellent though it was, and it would have been nice to have been asked first. On... More

Stayed just one brief night here as at a wedding nearby. Owners extremely friendly and helpful, with Dave even running me to the wedding venue instead of having to take a taxi! Room clean and bed very comfortable. Priced very well for the area - recommended.
