“Excellent bed and breakfast accommodation in Berwick-upon-Tweed”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We have the fondest of memories from our stay in The Walls Bed and Breakfast in Berwick-upon-Tweed. The room was fantastic with amazing view over the river, the breakfast was superb--a delicious surprise every day--but most of all we appreciated the hospitality and kindness of our hosts Eric and Suzanne, and their daughter Gemma. We went there as visitors, but we left as friends.

Room Tip: We stayed in the spacious Swan room. Simply wonderful.

Lovely historic house in a wonderful location upon the town walls, with views of the famous bridges and the river estuary.
The hosts are very very welcoming and cook a great breakfast with fresh, local ingredients.
Our second stay at The Walls and we will definitely return the next time we're in the area.

First time I've booked a place based on reviews on this website and all I can say is thanks to everyone who reviewed the Walls B and B.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful or more friendly, the place is spotless and very comfortable. My wife and I stayed in the Tweed room and the view was as promised.

Price was very reasonable and my wife and I will definitely visit here again. We won't even think about changing! Breakfast was excellent.

PS When we were there we met a nice couple who are regulars and who stay there many times a year. You can't beat that really!

Thanks to Suzanne, Eric and Gemma.

We stayed here for a couple of nights on a short break. Fantastic B&B right on water front. We stayed in the Tweed room which overlooks the water and saw the seals fishing for the salmon.Lovely spacious room, nice and quiet with all the usual extras.The breakfast was very good plenty of choice from a full breakfast to cereals and toast etc. The hosts were very welcoming,nothing was too much trouble and also reccomended where to eat and drink. If you want a bottle of wine for your room you can help yourself from the fridge and there is an honesty plate so you can just help yourself, I would highly recommend The Walls to anyone as it is a good base for all the attractions. So if you are going to Berwick please consider this wonderful B&B.

Room Tip: We would recommend the Tweed Room for its great views.

The Walls is in a fabulous location, right on the Quay Walls, overlooking the River Tweed and Berwick's 3 bridges: you could spend all day sitting in your room watching the changing light and fascinating bird population.

Eric, Suzanne and Gemma are lovely, welcoming hosts. Their breakfasts are superb, freshly cooked, with plenty of variety. Everything was lovely, but I would particularly recommend the fishcakes with poached eggs and the Chain Bridge honey.

Our room - The Tweed - is on the first floor. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. I was a little worried that the bed would be too soft for me, as I am used to a firm mattress, but it was very comfortable. There is also full Sky TV, which you don't usually find, even in much more expensive hotels. The bathroom has plenty of shelf space and a good-sized, powerful shower.

There is a nice lounge, with an honesty bar. We didn't use it, but it's always reassuring to see an honesty bar - I think it says a lot about the hosts and the guests.

There is a long-stay car park in front of the B&B, which costs £3.50 per day, or a short-stay car park at the back, which is free for 2 hours. Eric & Suzanne have a parking permit they can lend you.

A perfect place to stay, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Fabulous views from The Tweed room.

Having enjoyed a previous visit we were happy to return & delighted to find that the very high standards of accommodation, food & hospitality were maintained.
if anything there was an improvement on perfection as "clip-on" book lights are now provided so late readers accompanying light sleepers cause no problems!
While relaxing in the luxurious guest lounge we found lots of literature about the town & surrounding area.
We are now checking our diaries to work out a date for our next visit.
Thanks, Suzanne, Eric & Gemma for all that you do to make this such a special place.

We stayed one night in August 2012. Found it after a bit of a wander as it foxed our sat nav and it is walking access only being as the name suggests on the city walls. Really nice. Made most welcome and was asked what would we like for breakfast the minute we got there. This is so they could go and get it for us if we wanted fresh fisk for example. As I had only had fish for breakfast that morning I didn't want it again so I went for traditional. I almost wished i hadn't when I saw the wonderful fresh fish someone else there had the next morning but my traditional bacon eggs etc was quite the best I have ever had in one of these places - unmatched in fact.

The accommodation is everything one would expect and the location is great with nice views across the river Tweed.

Room Tip: Go for the first floor rooms as they have a better view of the river.
