“The ideal place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We were visiting a place we'd always by-passed in our working lives, and wanted somewhere interesting to stay while in the town. We found it, a lovely position up above the quayside, with tremendous views across the river Tweed, and a very friendly host. Derek made us welcome and suggested a few things we could do locally (walk around the walls, a good beer-only pub, and a nearby restaurant). Our room (the African room) was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Great breakfast- kippers a dream, my husband tucked into the Northumberland breakfast with relish. The steps up to the B&B from the public carpark behind the B&B were a bit steep, especially when carrying suitcases,but it all adds to the character of the place. Very good value for money, and we would stay there again.

My wife and I were celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary and we decided to go to Berwick-Upon-Tweed. We read alot of reviews and settled for 11 Quay Walls and it was the best decision we could have made. We were very warmly welcomed on arrival and shown to our room by Derek, he made us feel right at home. The room was very tastefully decorated, emaculate and had everything we needed. The breakfast menu provided had something to suite all and I would highly recommend the Northumberland Breakfast as this would set anyone up for the day. The view across the River Tweed was beautiful. The owners could not have been more helpful and knowledgable about the local area and kindly advised a trip to Seahouse and boat trip to Farne Island. All in all the time we spent in Berwick was made even better thanks to 11 Quay Walls and I could not recommend this excellent B&B highly enough and was fantastic value for money.

Lovely spot overlooking the river in a charming old quay wall house. Room was impeccable, beautifully decorated and spacious with a modern unsuited bathroom. Breakfast was delicious. The hosts were very friendly and helpful, highly recommend a stay here.

Excellent accommodation, beautifully clean and tastefully decorated rooms. My only reservations are the lack of fresh coffee for breakfast and there was no clock in the room. Parking could be a problem and there are a number of steps to be negotiated.

We stayed at the Quays on a stop off for one night on our way up to Scotland. Derek was very welcoming and gave us some good advice on where to eat and the local area. Room was very clean and comfortable and had great view. Breakfast was fantastic. ENjoyed our stay very much and would definately recommend. :)

We stayed on a Saturday night in July having previously stayed 3 years ago. All rooms have undergone renovations and all are now en-suite with excellent top quality fittings and furnishings. The rooms are spacious, airy, tastefully and luxuriously decorated and superbly colour co-ordinated, with each one following a theme. Wi-Fi is easily accessed in the bedrooms, there is a tv/dvd player, hospitality tray and wonderful views from the bedrooms overlooking the River Tweed - a nice touch being the binoculars available in the room to watch the river activities, plus a DVD of the local area. The super king size bed in our room was superbly comfortable, and the best night’s sleep was had in a long while.

Breakfast is beautifully served on a large communal table which worked very well. There was plenty of choice, all cooked to a very high standard and set us up for the day ahead. Derek and Dianne are wonderful hosts, extremely welcoming, and are very knowledgeable about the town and surrounding area.

This guest house, where attention to detail is the order of the day, has to be the best we have stayed in and we hope to return very soon.
