Stopped over in early September as we made our way along St Cuthberts Way. Not the most inspiring location. So would mark it down on that, if that was really key. The reception was unmanned, but once I located a member of staff, we were soon checked in. All very good and to fine standard. Evening meal in the bar... More

We started our cycling holiday through The Borders from St Bosells. And St Boswells has only one place to stay: Buccleuch Arms Hotel. Situated right on the A68 (one of the main roads between Scotland and England), Buccleuch presents an impressive appearance immediately on the junction with St Boswells. The building itself is well maintained, and the staff efficient and... More

Our room was tiny. The only window was in a sloping wall and above head height. When the loud music started, I stood on the bed to look out, and found to my horror a wedding marquee set up directly below the window. It turned out the wedding was not until the next night and they were just doing a... More

Dear Guest, I'm a little disheartened by your comments on my place here. We do have a couple of tiny rooms and we tell guests on booking this is the case and this is reflected in the tariff. We do have wifi, but I have never proclaimed it to be working in all nooks and crannies of the building, never... More

Stayed for one night. Had lunch dinner and breakfast. Good food, fresh produce, fantastic breakfast. Staff very friendly, welcoming and hard working. Room comfortable, if a little dated. Very good value.

Dear Guest, Many thanks for the brief review, I would take interest in knowing which room you stayed in and what you thought dated. We are constantly tweaking the bedrooms here and there. Some things wont be to your taste of course. We have in the past year refurbished 6 bedrooms, varying from the small to the large ones. All... More

Spent Saturday night having a bar meal with family and friends. Scampi was delicious, best I've had in a long while! Crispy and juicy. All reported that the beef pie was fabulous, our son tried the hot burger! We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Great evening thank you.

We stayed here on a family trip: grandparents, parents, children. Very nice hotel with beautifully decorated rooms, clean and comfortable. Thr breakfasts were outstanding. I especially liked the eggs royale (with smoked salmon) and the eggs en coquette. Dinner menu also was very good. Staff very friendly and helpful. Free wifi available in common areas. The lounge was comfortable as... More

Quaint and comfortable hotel in conveniently located in the Scottish Borders. We stayed here with a group of 10, and the hotel staff were very accommodating of us, even serving us our meals together in a back room perfectly suited to our size. The beds were comfortable; the staff was very helpful; the facilities were nice and clean; but my... More

Had a superior room. King sized bed, good size room. Decor is dated, not just in the room but all over the hotel. Room was fairly clean if a bit dusty. Wifi struggled to reach my room. (Room 7). When I enquired staff were very unhelpful. Tv remote had the cover missing so batteries kept falling out- so frustrating. Staff... More

Nice room but a bit noisy as we were facing the main road (A68). It soon quietened down though in the evening. Dogs made very welcome. Breakfast in the bistro was fantastic. Great friendly service from all staff.
