“A great little find...”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Wow... What a great homely BB..

Eileen and Jim were waiting for us at the door and greeted us wonderfully and showed us to our double En Suite Room..

Great nights sleep on a great comfy bed and a hearty cooked breakfast..

Looking forward to come back in the summer..

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room..

Eileen and Jim could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. Our room was a double en suite which was clean and tidy. The beach is at the back of the Guest house and some rooms have a sea view so do ask before you book. Breakfast was enough to set anyone up for the day! We stayed because our family were on a holiday camp nearby which by the time we were free to book it had become ridiculously expensive so this B&B a mile away suited us fine to cycle to see them. This turned out to be a very lucky accident.It was really quiet overnight and we could not hear the other guests who were also staying. If we are back in the area we would definitely try to book a stay here first. Beautiful area, lovely town. We have come away feeling thoroughly rested.

Room Tip: Seafront rooms have a lovely view but no ensuite. Rooms looking out toward the street are still grea...

The couple that own this place couldn't be nicer nor more helpful. They treated us like long lost friends as soon as we arrived and not just as another paying guest like most other places. This is by no means a modern establishment but they have worked hard to decorate and furnish it although maybe a bit mismatched. Overall it's a very acceptable place to stay, is right on the beach and promenade which is great if you don't like hills. Spittal itself doesn't appear to have much in the way of eateries but is only a short drive from berwick town centre or a good walk for anyone of reasonable fitness. Berwick itself has some surprisingly good eateries, if you can find them....see hide hill. you must walk around the town on the battlement walls. Some good views and a bit of history and art while you walk. I'd recommend the Roxburgh guest house.

We had a lovely room at the top overlooking the sea. We could lie in bed and listen to the waves and seagulls. It comes with a shower and basin but we shared a toilet, which was never an issue. The room was large and very comfortable. Our hosts were fabulous and breakfast excellent. We were sorry we only had one night here.

Stayed here for 5 nights after touring round Scotland then watching the golf.
We were very pleased with our visit & Eileen is an absolute star who really does care about her guests having a good time which isn't so common these days.
We didn't have a sea view & it was really hot with no breeze in the room but that is no-ones fault & unusual with our climate these days.
Breakfast was good & nothing was too much trouble.
We had a really lovely meal in the Rob Roy which is about a 20 minute walk away -food excellent.
Would definitely recommend & hope to return in the future.

If you want a B&B that offers a genuinely friendly welcome and which is based in a nice quiet location then this is the place for you.

We stayed in Room 6 for two nights – 11 & 12/07/13.

This room has a bay window with sea views and we spent a good hour or so each evening watching the world go by on the promenade and beach with a refreshing sea breeze to cool us down. It was also nice to wake up to the sound of the waves in the morning.

Room 6 has a separate, private bathroom which is about 6 feet from the room door. Although an en-suite would have been preferable we would have had to sacrifice the view so not a problem.

Breakfast was 8am to 9am and we cannot fault the service or the food.

There is plenty of parking to the front of the B&B.

It is a 1.2 mile walk to Berwick so about a 20-25 minute stroll but there are buses you can take, just ask Eileen or Jimmy for a bus timetable.

Suffice to say we had a nice stay and would book again if we were to visit the area.

Room Tip: Room 6 has a nice view
