I was looking forward to visiting this hotel for more than five days for buisness as it was rated 4 star with good reviews, however on arrival their was no reception and then told they had the wrong booking and was thrown in the deepest darkest room that nothing oozed 4 star! Lights didn't work the shower was poor with... More

We've been coming to the Buccleuch Arms for 10 years now and in that time have seen many positive changes. The hotel is now under the gifted ownership and management of Billy and Rachel Hamilton and their influence is tremendous. The decor is constantly being improved, without losing the individuality which tells you that this is not part of a... More

We had an evening meal here to celebrate my brother's 60th birthday. This was the first time my sister and I had eaten so weren't sure what to expect. We were given a very warm welcome and shown into a dinning room with relaxed, creative decor which we thought looked great. We all decided to have the same dish -... More

I was staying in Borders for a business trip and my colleagues and I found this place for dinner an decided to go there for every dinner of our stay. The food is great, the atmosphere is pleasant, and the service complements it all. Highly recommended.

A relative had mentioned this hotel and as we were looking for somewhere to stay whilst travelling back home from down south we decided to give it a try We were given Room 14 which was really nice. Although they were pretty busy (mother day) they found us a table for dinner, which was delicious, and we had a really... More

Two night stay at the hotel in St.Boswells. Room was okay, nice welcome from the front desk. Restaurant in need of a make over, trying to enjoy a meal with my husband and a dozen men are sitting in the middle of the floor watching the game and making a lot of noise. More like a bar that you would... More

Ended up stopping here unplanned as young son announced he needed a wee and were very pleasantly surprised. The two course lunch special is incredibly good value and was delicious - we had mussels followed by steak and chips - fresh, tasty, beautifully presented etc. Our son fancied garlic bread which wasn't on the menu but which they rustled up...

As a party of four, we have been coming to The Buccleugh for many years, staying over, after attending Kelso races. We arrived after the races on Saturday to an ongoing refurbishment, only to find the lovely lounge with open fire had been changed into a meeting room! On coming down from our room for a pre-dinner drink we found... More

Dear Rosemary, Our new lobby and entrance area has been an absolute hit with our current and returning customers, so much so that its now often a far busier area than our old lounge ever used to be which we are delighted about. Probably helped by a really warm welcome from the log burner there, and of course those are... More

A two day stay arranged by my wife as part of my Christmas. We received a warm welcome from the reception staff, Denise and Liam who insisted on helping with luggage and showing us to our room. The room was well appointed and very cosy. All staff were friendly and helpful, taking the time to advise on local walks and... More

We popped in for lunch on a very cold Saturday afternoon. We had beef broth that looked and tasted like oxtail soup but it was delicious, and it arrived quickly. Such a nice welcome on a cold day, and it was exactly what we wanted. We didn’t want to have to wait around to warm up. The main and desert... More
