Great hotel and superb hosts. Three of us, plus driver and car arrived in Hawick during our Lands End to John O'Groats cycle. Made a number of phone calls to B & B's in the area. Landed lucky with the Elm House Hotel. Very helpful in giving us good directions and assisting with securing our bikes overnight. Lovely large clean rooms. Great breakfast. Great central location for shops / fuel. Couldn't be more helpful.

The room I received wasn't even in the main part of the refurbished hotel, it was in the very dated extension. The room was very basic and the bed was truly awful and very uncomfortable. The room and windows had no sound-proofing whatsoever, so the noise of traffic on one side and the noise of the other guests in adjacent rooms resulted in a totally sleepless night! It was very hot and stuffy and due to the aforementioned noises you couldn't leave any of the windows even slightly open.
The staff were pleasant and helpful enough and there was a private car park for residents. Breakfast was ok, plenty to eat but very greasy.
All in all, this hotel is not worth the money and certainly even not worthy of it's 3-star grading. I would not recommend it to anyone.

Thirteen of us from Lancashire went up to the Borders for three days of golf and based ourselves in the Elm House Hotel in the centre of Hawick.

As has been said elsewhere the rooms we were allocated were all a good size, well clean and comfy with pristine spotless bed linen.

The Redpaths were fine hosts and looked after our every whim. The hotel was in a quiet area and (best of all perhaps) you only had to travel directly across the road outside the back door to get to the local Wetherspoons where the liquid refreshment was varied and very cheap.

Very inexpensive but very good was our verdict.

IF the Borders was ever to be the venue for another golf trip, the Elm House would be a cert!!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Took the grandchildren age 4 and 8 and they loved it. Hotel is right in the centre of Hawick, huge rooms, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Hotel (and staff) all very child friendly and helpful. I have stayed before but not with the grandchildren. Very good value and as an overall experience is better then most of the big chain hotels. I recommend it.

Room Tip: Family and double rooms on 1st floor are excellent. Large, comfortable and v quiet.

Really loved this place. The family were lovely, friendly and really helpful. The rooms are great for our purpose and had a comfy bed. The price was great too! Large fulling breakfast available also. Would have loved to stay longer and would definately stay here again if I came back and recommend to anybody!

Hotel basic but excellent value. Room was in main hotel and very quiet. All very clean and warm. Friendly, helpful owners. We found a good and safe place fo car and trailer and vintage motorcycles in the hotel car park.
