“EXCELLENT STAY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

At the end of August our group of three couples stayed at the WHITEHOUSE COUNTRY HOUSE and can only descibe our stay as excellent in all respects.
Being retired and partly retired ex work colleagues excellent accomodation and excellent food are our major requirements which were fully met at the WHITEHOUSE
I can strongly recommend this establishment should you require a peaceful stay in the area which also enjoys many and varied attractions

Thank you for taking the time to post a review for Whitehouse. We are delighted that you and your friends enjoyed your stay with us so much. The group of guests staying with us just now are also enjoyed having Wild Tweed Salmon for dinner last night. Tonight they are having local Grouse for dinner.

By chance, we discovered after an inconvenience with another booking not taken into account this wonderful house. We couldn't find better to forget this unpleasant occurrence: not only the great comfort and distinction of the place cheered us up quite rapidly but also the warm welcome and helpfulness of the hostess – yet busy with the dinner to prepare for her other guests – gave us another balm. Whitehouse is now in our mind and we fully recommend it.

We have just returned from our annual stay at the Whitehouse. Angela and Roger are wonderful hosts and always give you the warmest of welcomes. Roger who is an expert fisherman will give advice to help you catch that big salmon from the River Tweed! The rooms are really comfortable and spotless. Angela is an excellent cook and will cater for any dietary requirements. Stunning scenery surrounds the house. Three gorgeous house dogs to fuss if you want and you can also take your own dog. Housekeeper Tracy and all the staff look after you so well. Homeliness and comfort all rolled into one!

We stayed two nights at the Whitehouse country house. We had a very warm welcome. Our room faced the countryside and the view was just astounding! One could stay there and gaze at the view for hours...

The breakfasts were really delicious. Angela, the hostess, was very accommodating on our day of departure.

The host, Roger, lit the fireplace in the lounge for us where we watched the opening ceremony of the Olympics. Yes, the fireplace was lit in July! They are very sweet and caring hosts.

The location is perfect to visit the abbeys but also to take walks (Scott's view, Wallace statue, etc.)

The room and the bathroom were very spacious but the beds were not quite firm enough.

Room Tip: We had a room with two double beds and they were a bit worn out. The view was spectacular. The coun...

After a long flight and drive, we landed at Whitehouse. Thank heaven we booked for two nights because it was the perfect place to repair jet lag damage. Angela greeted us with a hug, tea and cake. We couldn't ask for more. Not only is Angela a warm,wonderful hostess, but also a fantastic cook. Be sure to book for dinner, and take time to enjoy an incredible breakfast. We got a lot of sightseeing suggestions while enjoying the gorgeous views from the dining room. I cannot recommend this B and B enough. It truly was perfect.

My wife and I stayed two nights last week and enjoyed our short stay. The hosts were wonderful and the rooms, common area and Breakfast were all excellent. We had a early start on our day of departure and a breakfast tray awaited our 5:30 am departure! Most excellent. The walk down by the river was very nice. Take the time for the walk. We shall return when we visit Scotland again.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write such a lovely review. We are glad you made your flight in time as you had such an early start.

For our fourth trip to Whitehouse, we celebrated my husband's 60th birthday along with 18 of our close family and friends. Following canapes and bubbly in the drawing room, served by Whitehouse's attentive staff, we enjoyed a fabulous 3 course dinner at a banqueting table overlooking miles of beautiful Borders countryside. Angela, the hostess, could not have been more accommodating, catering to the smallest request. After a very comfortable night in luxurious rooms, we were treated to a first class breakfast. Cannot recommend Whitehouse highly enough!

As always, we're looking forward to our next visit!
