I have visited the Kingsknowes Hotel for many years and resided there on occasions. This is an excellent Hotel which offers a great experience in a wonderful setting. The building was a mill owners mansion many years ago and retains that quaint quality. In essence any visit to this venue will not disappoint.

We stayed for the weekend - classic stately room and the hotel itself was very good - award winning gardens and vine laden conservatory a delight - but management seem to be relying on weddings and party bookings and don't open the restaurant- so all meals happen in side bar which spoiled the atmosphere of the stay. And the prices... More

Visited with family on a lovely Summer afternoon, where we enjoyed a perfect meal in the Conservatory . There was a good choice which was served quickly and the staff were very attentive. Will definitely be back.

Had a lovely ladies summer dinner here. There were 17 of us and we were well received and attended to. The staff were efficient but unobtrusive and the food was excellent. We had pre-ordered so there was minimum delay. The restaurant is within the Kingsknowes hotel which is set just off the A7 and has lots of parking. We all... More

We've been holding business meetings here regularly recently. On arrival at 10:45 we were surprised to find the Courtyard Bar door still locked so we met in the Cocktail Bar. Service here was a bit patchy but this could be explained by the staff preparing the other bar for lunch service. Coffee and water ordered. We moved to the Courtyard... More

This hotel offers a lovely Sunday Lunch and indeed a lovely menu with lots of choice. Our visit was for my mother in laws birthday and she really did enjoy her roast dinner. The surroundings are lovely and easy to find, just off main A7 Edinburgh to Carlisle , so if you are passing its a must!

Popped in for quick lunch so chose sandwiches with side of chips from a menu that ranged from this and baked potatoes to full and tasty sounding dishes. Service was friendly and efficient. They should however (like a lot of places these days) either stop pre-salting their chips or at least forewarn diners. Location is convenient just as you exit/enter... More
