They weren't serving dinner the night we went but went to the bistro gown the road with our 4 month old and everyone was lovely there and the food... More

Stayed here for 1 night recently. Can't really find anything negative to say about this lovely B and B. Staff courteous and efficient . Rooms nicely decorated with fabulous ensuites. Food was very nice. I would recommend letting them know any allergies or dislikes as there was no choice apart from dessert course. Certainly hope to return there soon.

Angela came to the rescue once our booking at the nearby Clint Lodge was cancelled due to a double booking, and I am delighted that she could help Clint Lodge relocate us! Visiting for a Family celebration, we were just looking for a decent bed. What we received was a warm welcome, with tea and cake. Our room (blue room)... More

Whitehouse Country House is a fabulous place to stay. Nestled in the Scottish countryside and close to the town of Kelso, it's the perfect setting for a relaxing night's sleep. Enormous bedrooms, very comfortable beds and gigantic bathrooms, I can't think of anything bad to say. Just fantastic.

This is a perfect place to stay - there is not one single thing I can think of (despite trying) that is negative. The rooms are huge, the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are huge and have everything you need (and more - deep, wide bathtubs, showers for two, the toiletries you need). The views are beautiful. The hosts are... More

Our first stay and wont be the last. A lovely old house that was toasty warm, the bedroom was spacious and the bed was a very comfortable super king. The bathroom had a powerful shower, no trickles here, and plenty of hot water. The dining and drawing rooms both had wonderful views of the countryside and the latter had comfy... More

We are so lucky to live in such a wonderful part of the Scottish Borders, Whitehouse enjoys such breathtaking scenery and yet is only a 5 minute drive from St. Boswells.

Our second stay and already looking forward to our third. Lovely new bathroom and everything so comfortable and food so good, especially the salmon and pheasant provided by Roger's rod and gun.

Our first taste of Scotland on our way up to The Highlands. Warm welcome received by Roger and given tea and cake in the lounge. We opted for the evening meal which perhaps for us we found to be overpriced for the food we received. The cost of £29 per person seemed high compared to other good places we stayed... More
