This was a nice place to stay and reasonably priced. The breakfast was lovely and the b&b is run by a friendly and extremely helpful couple. The b&b is dog friendly and there is a lane that takes you on a lovely grassy (safe for off lead walking) area on the bank of the river. It takes literally 1 minute... More

We traveled to Scotland, and northern England to celebrate our 40th anniversary. Kelso was our first stop. The owner upgraded us from the smallest room in the place to a more comfortable one, but I can hardly see how anyone could complain about this place. The bed was really comfortable and the host was friendly. The location was convenient and... More

I stayed at Duncan house earlier this week for business. As I travel all over the UK for work, I'm used to staying in many weird and wonderful places - I would definitely say Duncan house was one of the best. I stayed in the Teviott room (the best room!!) which had a 4 poster very comfortable bed, large lounging... More

Breakfast : top notch. Lovely atmosphere and homely feel to this B&b. Rooms are comfortable and warm with good facilities. Superb location and a very special place to stay. Would recommend to all fisherman and people who are looking for a place to stay for a few nights in the Kelso area with a friendly staff and family feel.

This is one of those 'once in a few years' kind of places. Quirky, a gracious home, the way you might expect a country home should be. Really comfortable, fabulous views, and I really mean 'fabulous'. What else? All the details are there from some nice artwork and wonderful furniture on the walls to small stuff like bowls of sweets... More

We stayed in Roxburgh Cottage* but with communal breakfast in the dining room of the main house, with a superb view of the Tweed river and pastures below. We reminded our host of our vegetarian eating and were served vegetarian sausages and hash browns with the other options.
