Stayed at Ednam House for one night with my partner and our two little Jack Russell's. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming towards our little dogs, in fact I have never stayed anywhere so dog friendly, they were allowed everywhere (except the restaurant of course) and we all had a lovely time. We sat outside in the garden for... More

A Country House hotel in the midst of the town at the front but the feel and look of the countryside at the back. Loved the explosion of wild flowers everywhere. The staff do their best to accommodate guests individual needs. When booking, bear in mind this is an old house and there are no lifts. For wheelchair users the... More

The hotel could be one of the most impressive in Scotland. I have used this hotel several times over the past 12 months, but only as a last resort. It is in a perfect location on the banks of the Tweed, sadly a complete lack of investment means that the hotel is shabby and long past it's sell by date.... More

Attended the wedding of our niece Caroline to Josh Cressey. This hotel is situated in a fantastic part of Kelso, it overlooks the river Tweed. The grounds at the back( beside the river ) are a sight to behold, especially on a bright sunny day. Great backdrop especially for photographs. Staff were very attentive and made sure that all guests... More

Really enjoyable stay. This hotel is in the middle of Kelsi but feels like countryside. It overlooks the river tweed. The room was a mixture of antique and modern which really worked. Comfortable bed and room, food was really good, staff really friendly and as we were late getting there were really helpful with our meal. Can highly recommend

We spent a night in a river view room with breakfast. The hotel looks impressive from the outside. Gardens are lovely, if needing a little TLC, the setting next to the river beautiful. The rooms are unfortunately not so. Room was in need of repair and décor was shabby but definitely not chique. The shower in the room was like... More

Much to commend in this hotel: it's superb position by the Tweed and in the town centre. The public rooms and dining room are good as is the food . The service in the dining room was outstanding and we were made to feel welcome. My criticism would be that the rooms at the back of the hotel are shabby... More

We have just returned home from a wedding at the Ednam House Hotel in Kelso. It's probably the best hotel in the Scottish Borders. I'll get straight to the point. 1, A beautiful former Scottish country house on the banks of the River Tweed. 2, Luxury bedrooms, public rooms, function suite and dining room. 3, Excellent, well maintained, extensive gardens....
