Lovely, well appointed old building in the centre of Kelso. Even though a b&b, there is a comfortable indoor seating area for guests to use, plus chairs/tables in the garden for warmer weather. The bedroom was similarly comfortable, with furniture in keeping with the property, compete with tea and coffee making facilities. The bathroom was perhaps a little small, but... More

Our family stayed in this welcoming, traditional stone built B&B in July with adult children and Grandmother. The rooms were furnished in traditional borders style but with modern bathrooms and our Library room had a full flow rain shower. The location is perfect, right in the heart of Kelso with restaurants just a 2 min stroll. Also the Tweed is... More

We booked on the day & were well impressed. We stayed in the library room which was really quiet, traditionally designed, with an enormous bed & sofa. The modern shower room had a massive double shower, which was gleaming clean. Robin our host was welcoming with a good sense of humour. There were china cups and saucers, along with crystal... More

Where to start? This is a beautiful house in a really good location with lots of pubs and restaurants all within walking distance. Robin was extremely helpful with information about places to visit and always had time to chat. In fact, we enjoyed his company so much that our stay felt very much like a house party! Robin's breakfasts are... More

Kelso is the perfect town to stay in to explore the borders region of Scotland and the Old Priory is the perfect place to stay. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean and the shower is the best in Scotland. If you travel you know what I speak of when I say postage stamp showers. Well I really think you... More
