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.
