Staff welcoming, efficient and friendly. Evening meal and breakfast was excellent ( quality and quantity) The bedroom was more than adequate for an overnight stay and mention must be made on how comfortable the bed was and the efficiency of the shower. Both important factors in hotel accommodation. Would certainly recommend to other travellers looking for accommodation in this area.

Arrived to find it fairly busy around 5pm, but managed to get a lovely table near the roaring fire. Service was very good, and the food was freshly prepared and delicious. I had black pudding and bacon stack, lovely roast lamb dinner, and whiskey and orange bread pudding. All delicious! Very nice atmosphere and an excellent menu that catered for... More

My Husband and I were recommended The Blue Bell for our evening meal whilst staying at the Old School House (Tillmouth) and it certainly lived up to the recommendation. We arrived late, full of apologies, for our reservation but it wasn't a problem. Everyone was so pleasant. The menu is extensive and our 3 courses were beautifully prepared. Local produce... More

Stayed at the Blue Bell with my daughter for the weekend of events for Flodden.The room was really nice and the staff very helpful and friendly.My daughter is a vegetarian but was well catered for at breakfast,lunch and dinner.My main reason for booking was its proximity to the battlefield but even if I was not going to Flodden I would...

We stayed for 3 nights at the Blue Bell Inn and could not fault one second of our experience, the room was fantastic value, the breakfast set you up for the day, the staff and management were extremely attentive and the location is breath taking. Although the Inn itself is set in the middle of nowhere there is loads of... More

Great nights stay for our small family of four. We really enjoyed the room and breakfast was great. Best of all is the wonderful location of this place. If you go, please do visit the Flodden Fields Battlefield memorial. Thanks!

We chose to stay here because of the good reviews that we'd read. The owner's attention to detail meant that everything about it was top class. The rooms were excellent, so was dinner and breakfast. This place is just great. It's worth taking the road through Coldstream just to stop over at the Blue Bell.

Lovely small friendly pub with great rooms. Staff were fantastic, rooms were amply big enough, ensuite was a little on the small side but the overriding joy was an amazing shower! Good breakfast and nice homemade food. Would stay again and recommend!
