We stayed in the suite for 3 nights which is spacious with plenty of storage and nicely decorated with a large bed which we found quite comfortable. There was access to a fridge just outside the room which had water and milk for tea/coffee.
The owners, Geoff and Marion are very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. It was good to browse their fabric samples whilst having a coffee as we are thinking of redecorating at the moment.
As an aside the coffee shop has now closed and breakfast is served downstairs in a small room with individual round wooden tables for each room. There was some fruit & yoghurt, orange juice, cereals, bread for toasting and your choice of a cooked breakfast which was very nice.
Once again we found staying in a B&B in the Borders that the door has no key (although there is a privacy bolt for when you are inside the room), maybe it's a Borders thing but we do prefer to lock a room if we are out especially when we didn't want to take our camera equipment with us. The owners did say that other guests would not be in this part of the building but it still seems odd to us.
It was very cold weather whilst we were there and although the room was quite comfortable the heat disappears when you close the full length curtains as the radiators are behind them.
The car has to be parked in a local car park just down the road which was no problem as it wasn't too far and it was free.
Overall we had a very pleasant stay.
