Lovely hotel, wonderfull staff,a central location in a small town. It is in easy walking distance to most local pubs and restruants. We had a good meal in the hotel bar and breakfast was good ,anything you wanted they tried hard to produce for you.

Room was clean and enough space for family of 3. Service is okay, WiFi slow and unstable. Had a decent meal in the hotel restaurant, although service was slow. Small town has little more to offer than tweed, tweed history and tweed shops.

The hotel is situated right in the centre of town. The food here was... More
