An all to short a stay at The Whitehouse, where we received the warmest of welcomes with the most wonderful room and Angela's breakfast could very well be legendary. Thank you for memorable experience and hope to be back. Gilly & Rob

It was a pleasure to have you stay at Whitehouse. The Breakfast specials menu is always changing, gluten and sugar free pumpkin muffins are featuring this week for Halloween.

Can't recommend the Whitehouse highly enough. From the views to the warm welcome from Angela to the lovely room and the great breakfasts everything is just what you would want. We stayed for two nights which was not enough to take in the many points of local interest so we'll have to return. An excellent base for anyone fishing the...

We stayed at the Whitehouse for one night after flying into Edinburgh earlier in the day. I was tired from a sleepless flight and my first experience driving on the left hand side of the road.

This is an old home in the country a short distance outside St. Boswells. The views from the large windows was rolling countryside - beautiful. Very peaceful with lovely accommodations and amenities. Our hosts were most friendly and helpful with our day trip plans and recommendations. Wouldn't be disappointed .
