My girlfriend and I stayed in the Dream Suite on a long weekend.
It’s difficult to add what has already been said in their excellent reviews so far. The suite, with its palatial bathroom is excellent. The breakfasts, from the artistic fruit platters to the organic local produce in the hot options that followed (we tried the Full Scottish Breakfasts and the Eggs Benedict with Trout during our stay), were delicious and enough to keep you going until the evening. When the breakfast starts to ‘wear off’, The Granary is situated in the area of Berwick that has many good evening meal options within five minutes walk, as is the Maltings Theatre.
Being people that usually have stays in self catering apartments or more impersonal large hotels, the number of reviews that referred to how helpful and friendly Pam and Dave were began to worry us in a strange “are we going to be left alone?” type of way. We can confirm that we needn’t have worried and that Pam and Dave are a lovely couple, who will give you recommendations on the area if you ask for them and find out anything that they cannot answer. They will speak to you as friends rather than clients and certainly won’t ‘overpower’ your stay. We were sorry to leave at the end of our break and should we return to the Borders, we know where to contact.
Finally, unlike the other rare occasions that we have stayed in Bed & Breakfasts, we were not ‘lobbied’ into writing a review for Tripadvisor. Perhaps the greatest compliment that we can give is that, after years of using T/A for hotel and restaurant recommendations, this stay has prompted us to register and write our first review.
Thanks again Pam and Dave and all the best for the future.
