Stayed there in the beginning of December and was thoroughly delighted with this hotel Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Delightful décor, wood fires for the cold. Fabulous selection for supper and breakfast including special diet needs.

Loved the hotel and its cosy downstairs bar and the food served in the bistro was of an excellent standard. The local beers were very good also and was surprised by a nice selection of different dishes for breakfast above the usual old fry up. The eggs benedict I had was perfect with a tasty hollandaise. I was there on... More

No lamb on the menu . But in the Borders more lambs on farms than any other part of the country. Lamb particularly cheap at moment. Please support local farmers by offering your customers a nice meal of local tasty succulent lamb

Dear Sir, Having spoken with you on departure and explained myself I find it pretty disappointing that you've come on here and moaned about the lack of lamb on the menu and how I don't support local farmers. As a local farmer yourself you know how many of them I do support throughout our menu and throughout our monthly changes... More

Only negatives, my room was right next to the main road and junction, noisy at times with heavy lorries passing during the night. Also quality of pillows was poor, expected better looking at quality of... More

In a a way the fact that this review is overdue is a good thing as we can honestly say the hotel,food and staff are consistent with the quality of room,cleanliness,food and service. In particular their receptionist Denise who always does her utmost... More

Me and a friend went for tea on the 4th and had an enjoyable meal. Food was very tasty and was very well sized. The service was fast and efficient too. I was very impressed by this in comparison to last time we visited when we had to wait over half an hour for our food but did get free... More

Friendly receptionist in carpetless reception area! Excellent dinner and breakfast. The room was very small, with noisy air conditioning units outside the window. The window didn't close properly. Advertised wi fi was not available in the room. The television reception was poor in the room. Generally disappointing
