By the side of the wide river Tweed - our room ,Tweed, had impressive views over the river up to Floors Castle. Comfortable rooms with a bath. Breakfast is in a large dining room on a huge old table wonderfully set out. good menu for breakfast. Real milk for your tea from a fridge on the first floor landing. Lots... More

At first, I was a little concerned about the system for accessing the building upon arrival but in practice, it worked perfectly. I was given the key-code in an email some time before departure and it was texted to me again as I travelled to Berwick. On arrival, I simply let myself in and the room key and other instructions...

The building itself is not only in a brilliant position overlooking the river but our room also overlooked the local castle, in the distance across the water. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was made and served by a sweet soul who was interesting to chat to. We had a minor problem with the bathroom when the door handle... More

Visited on 11th June. Disappointed to find we weren't greeted upon out arrival. Room good, shower & bath of very good standard. Overall the house was lovely & totally in keeping. What let it. down was the breakfast. We pre booked a vegetarian breakfast & this had been totally overlooked. Not good when you don't eat eggs or beans! No... More

This was a communication failure by the guest. The booking stated '1x vegetarian breakfast if possible, thanks, Paul' No mention was made in the booking of not eating eggs or beans. The house was fully stocked with fresh fruit, cereals fish etc non of which was apparently acceptable to the guest who demanded vegetarian sausage. This is only the second... More

While at a wedding in Jedburgh we stayed for one night. Wow what a fabulous, cosy welcoming house. Breakfast was amazing and lots of it too. We will definitely be back for a longer stay next time. Great nights sleep.

We had an overnight at Duncan House, arriving at the exact time we specified but had to do self check in which I guess was O.K. but missing the personal touch found in good B& Bs.

David I am sorry that we were not there to greet you but we do not live in the house (we live next door) and we just cannot be on site 24/7.

I was there for one night. The stay was pleasant but when you sell your room on internet in such a specific way (river views) you cannot swap rooms and give kind of corral views to the customer. Besides that, as the check-in was a self service, I couldn't claim to anybody. Despite that fact, and some cleanliness mild mistakes,... More
