We stopped for a meal at this pub. The interior was very drab. The seats were very dirty. The toilets had not been cleaned in a week. We promptly left our drinks and moved on even though we were very hungry. So we can't comment on the food but the if it was as good as the cleanliness, we would... More

I'm sad to say that the reviews are not completely unreasonable. There is a tired neglected air and I feel for the staff who are probably besieged by complaints. Our room, number 1, was not as bad as some described - it was tatty but reasonably clean and the bath filled OK and there were no leaks. Our friend had... More

I can't see what the bad reviews mean, yes it's a pub and if it didn't get busy and noisy at weekends it would probably be a Tescos express by now. The food was good and the price very reasonable. The room was fine and breakfast from 6.00 am ideal for the business traveller. Some noise from the bar at... More

Kept awake by karaoke on Friday night taking place in the bar directly below my room, thankfully they weren't singing on the Saturday but room disgusting. Carpet... More

I had business in the area and the hotel had been booked for me . What a mistake, as soon as I entered you got the smell of stale oil and tcp, a man in the bar threatening people drunk and the staff laughing, rooms disgusting looking like it was being used as a doss house, staff totally unhelpful.

Stayed here one night 16th June. What an absolute disgusting place. We had room 9. Photographs show the state of the room. The whole place smells of stale food and sweaty bodies. Our room was dirty. The carpet worn. The beds very uncomfortable. Bathroom down the hall filthy. Again photos will verify. No window on the bathroom. I have found... More

8 of us were staying at a hotel in Duns and went to the White Swan to watch the FA cup final and have a few drinks. The reception from the dark haired barmaid was terrible. She pulled faces every time we asked for a round of drinks, was visibly angry when I asked if I could have a slice... More

Had meal here in January. Food was excellent , staff friendly but oh dear the decor was very tired. Eight of us were in a back room with no heating and very hard wooden chairs !!!! One of our company went to the gents toilet and turned and came back out . Wet floor and not clean.
