We had given up on this location but noticed it had been refurbished and decided to have another look. Externally not much change to the casual eye but inside WOW. The lounge bar has had a complete makeover and is quite new. Walls have been removed and the old public bar is gone, not before time. What remains is a... More

After stopping here as well as visiting the restaurant on seperarate occasions over the past few years, we decided, whilst in the area to visit for Sunday lunch. What a total let down we experienced after all the good experiences we have had here in the past. The reception we received was positive and encouraging. We were informed that as... More

Hi there, This is not the norm for our staff as we usually receive compliments on their politeness! Hopefully this was just a misunderstanding, staff are told what the specials are and should have explained that this was a roast gammon loin not pork.

Decided to try out evening meal service only week or so after a major refurbishment of the property. Nice decor and very friendly service but disapointed that three of the items on the main course menu were not available, at least one of which would have been our first choice Had a duck breast main, well cooked and presented but...

Stayed for one night. The Inn was about to undergo refurbishment so no evening meal available. That said, I enjoyed my stay. The Landlord was very hospitable and I was made to feel very welcome. The location is handy for Galashiels or a drive to Edinburgh.

Stopped off here for lunch. Food was hot & freshly prepared and was generous portions. The homemade burger was very good. Lounge is looking quite tired but we were informed that they are having a total refurbishment at the end of May 2016. I will need to check it out again once the refurbishment is complete.

This hotel is urgently needing refurbished. The lounge area has very tired furniture and some seats are torn. Curtain rail on window was hanging down. Paintwork is needing refreshed and wallpaper is needing replaced throughout. The beds were comfortable and rooms were warm. Tea/coffee, biscuits and bottle water was provided which was good. The Windows had wooden Venetian blinds which... More
