We decided to go to Scotland for a few days to celebrate my wife’s 70th Birthday and having had excellent stays at the Glen in the past three years; the choice of hotel was easy. As dad was paying, my daughter and my son and his partner had decided to join us. I asked the owners if we could have a special meal on the Saturday night and they readily agreed.
We arrived on Friday to the usual warm welcome and enjoyed a superb meal from the extensive a la carte dinner menu. The youngsters hadn’t previously visited the Borders, so we spent a great Saturday enjoying the sights in Peebles, Melrose and Kelso.
On our return to the Glen Hotel, the fire in the well stocked bar was very welcoming but this was nothing compared to the party style dinner that evening. Steve is an accomplished chef: we knew that but the Thai style meal that he made for us that night was sensational. They had even had a birthday cake made, which was a lovely surprise. It was a struggle to eat the sumptuous full Scottish breakfast next morning but my son and I managed it.
As always, the rooms were clean, well maintained and warm, the en-suite showers immaculate and the flat screen TVs unused.
Steve and Antoinette are excellent hosts and can advise on the many walks, golf courses and fishing facilities in the area. The Borders are full of history with magical castles, country houses and museums to fill your time. This lovely old hotel on the banks of Ettrick water was a super place to explore the region from.
We had an excellent value for money few days with something to talk about for weeks after.
