“Market Square Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Great little hotel across from the Market Square with a restaurant and bar for your meals. The rooms were great and the food even better. Highly recommend the hotel. It is the only one in the city/town center.

We stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of June 2013. We didn't know what to expect and we were really pleasantly surprised. The rooms were of a really good standard. We had dinner in the restaurant on the night we arrived. The food was delicious and the service was friendly and helpful. I'm going to be dreaming of the breakfasts when we go back home and it's back to coffee and a quick bowl of cereal before work. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: if the occasional car noise would interrupt your sleep ask for a room not on the street side .

I spent a couple of nights at the County Hotel earlier this month while visiting to look at places we might move to in the area. I arrived very late on the bus, but it was no problem for the friendly woman at the desk. The room was spacious and pleasant, looking out onto the market square. The bed was very comfortable, and everything was nice and clean. I really enjoyed my stay and had supper in the restaurant as well, which was great. Selkirk is a great base for exploring the Borders. I spent an afternoon hiking around the edge of Ettrick Forest, which was really pleasant. And the price was very good, too.

Room Tip: My mobile phone only got signal if I was fairly near the window on the front of the hotel.

Having not been in this hotel since I was a teenager I was pleasantly surprised on how in has been transformed into a very nice country hotel. Service from stepping through the front door to exiting on departure was first class and shall definitely return again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

The Duty Manager (Young Lady, not sure of her name) was excellent and `genuine` in her friendly service (something that is rare to find these days). She was though rather stretched as other People have commented on and was serving at both the bar and restaurant and bringing out the meals!!!. She did this with a smile though, however, as a recommendation, they need more staff on and I am sure it will pay dividends with the extra drinks they sell.

The Brasserie was pleasant enough but cold (this really needs to be addressed and I cannot understand how they have not noticed or addressed this). To be fair, the afore-mentioned Young Lady turned a free-standing fire round towards us which was very good of her and another example of her overall service.

The bar area seemed a nicer environment and a great place to relax and have a drink in.

The food was excellent and this is why you should choose here (I of course cannot comment on the rooms as did not stay). They seem to specialise in seafood which is very fresh and tasty.

I would return and would recommend the County, however, with a few easy `niggles` addressed, it could be superb.

We stayed there for 4 nights - our bedroom was huge, 2 double beds, a seating area and a bathroom. The service from the staff throughout our stay was excellent. The breakfasts were more than filling and of a very high standard. We ate in the bar area twice and again, the food and service was excellent.

We held a function there at lunchtime on the Monday and there was plenty food, coffee and tea for everyone.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone and if ever we are back in Selkirk, we would certainly stay there if there were rooms available.
