It's slightly unfair to review a hotel that's just been taken over by new management and is in the process of being updated – but our one-night stay was enough to guarantee that, if we happen to be in Hawick again, we'd book into the Elm House Hotel without hesitation.
The welcome was as warm as it could possibly be. On seeing we were a married couple who'd booked a twin room because that's all there was on the online booking system, they immediately offered us a double, which was clean, bright and warm.
We had a really comfortable night and breakfast was top-notch, served with more friendly chatter and genuine interest over how our stay had been. As they had a wedding party in they were happy to be flexible about our check-out time, which is always a nice touch when you're thinking another hour in bed might be nice!
I'd have to say the shower was a bit clunky, but I'm pretty certain that's the kind of thing that will be attended to in the very near future. Even if it's not we could live with it!
No real complaints and plenty of praise – especially for the welcome, which seriously could not have been warmer. Fully recommended for a friendly, local experience.
