The atmosphere and location. The fact it is dog friendly. Ample parking and all the thins I rated "good" or "excellent".
This was our fifth stay.The food, compared with the first time about six years ago,seemed a tad less interesting.
Stayed with my 5yr old, loved the pool and grounds.
The location, the professional yet friendly staff and the calm, relaxing atmosphere.
The poor shower and pillows
Proximity to the River Tweed - only a few yards! Excellent for fly-fishing at no extra charge. The service in the Tweed Restaurant was brilliant! And much more peaceful and relaxing than the Bistro
Swimming pool smaller than it looks in the photo (wide-angle lens!) and used for local swimming lessons so you need to check times. Rooms at the back don't have a view; ask for one overlooking the front of the hotel
The setting and the old world feel. The dining environment. The Head waiter.
The dinner was a bad experience...main course not hot and dessert frozen and hard to eat. Breakfast passable no one offered more toast or more tea...black pudding and eggs overcooked. Staff at reception were minimally understanding. Poor customer care.
Staff very professional and helpful. Courtesy tray was well stocked
Food was just ok, it did not have the wow factor. The menu seemed to be a bit ambitious for the production staff. The food was not hot, just warm. Fresh fruit would have been preferable at breakfast, not tinned. Poached eggs water had too much vinegar and tasted the eggs. Quality of linen on bed was past its best. Bathroom grouting needs attention
Great location peaceful and relaxing
No mattress protectors.need new pillows .bad food smell in dining area next to lounge bar.
The Setting. The care, concern, courtesy and efficiency of the staff.
It was all good.
Staff very helpful and efficient Relaxed atmosphere Excellent location for sport, fishing etc Quality of food very good
Relaxing atmosphere in pleasant surroundings, despite the "faded grandeur".
Lighting in lounge - insufficient for reading. Many lamps but poor illumination. Bedside lights also poor and unsuitable for reading.
All staff were very helpful, polite and friendly.Good housekeeping.
Creaky floorboards and poor view from ground floor room at back of hotel.
The location. The ambience. The grandeur of the surroundings and the elegance of the building.
Who would want to take their beautiful wife to a hotel room called Hairy Mary's. Hairy Mary's was perhaps the smallest hotel room we have ever been in. The pillows were so flimsy we could span them with our finger and thumb. Lipstick on the flannel in the bathroom and it wasn't mine! We were disappointed that our expectations didn't match the reality. However, I realise that it is easy to be critical when first impressions are so tainted.
Unimpressed by room. Evening meal was like eating at any pub and breakfast service was appalling...never again!
The location and the room
The food was disappointing. My wife had to send her main course back on our first night as it was very poor quality. There was also a lack of sufficient staff and those who were present were overworked, with the result that the service was not up to scratch (we ordered wine on the second night which did not arrive at our table until tem minutes after our food was served.
A hidden gem. Great relaxed comfort. Top Salmon fishing near by and some super walks for our dog. You can fish for Trout free on the hotel's beat anytime. Big old fashioned luxury, good food, lazy lounges and nice staff.
If you're fussy and looking for Dubai glamour then this isn't for you.
Lovely setting near the Tweed, old fashioned and very nice swimming pool.Staff all very chatty and helpful Comfortable beds with duvets
Dinner menu in the restaurant, the main courses were more like pub food. Lots of stairs if you were not very fit
The Staff were extremely helpful to the point when we rang ahead to find out about last orders for food they notified the Kitchen about our arrival and let us check in after we had ate. Stunning views on site and nearby with local towns a short drive away.
Double bed consisted of 2 singles which seemed a little cheap for the price of the room If your not a fan of stuffed animal decorations you wont enjoy the decor in the main areas of the hotel! Luckily we was fine!
I wish we had been told that we had to make a reservation for dinner and that casual wear was frowned upon in the dining room. With no other restaurants close by we had to eat in our room.
I loved the location, the beautiful room, the comfortable traditional surroundings and the spectacular and peaceful location. The hotel manager was terrific.
The choice of food was wide and varied but the quality was a little disappointing at times (eg. meat a little dry and overcooked).
Great location and friendly, helpful staff.
The Hotel was beginning to look a bit run-down and much of the décor was quite dated. The sauna needed to be warmer. The light shade in our en-suite appeared to be the worlds best fly/wasp catcher and contained circa 20 dead or dying insects. In fairness, the receptionist got this remedied shortly after we mentioned it to them.
Nice pastoral site on the river with easy access to the area's towns and sights. Beautiful building and setting. Stuffiness of the interior decor and facilities added to the charm.
Having been out to meet friends in the evening, we were unaware that the hotel would be locked at night. When we returned after 11 pm, we could not rouse anyone to open the door for us. Fortunately we had a ground-level room and had left a window open, so we were able to climb in.
Food taken on the night was excellent and rather tasty. Lovely relaxing restaurant with pleasant attentive staff.
Shower pressure mediocre and I am sorry but..... there was a cobweb hanging above the mirror area in the bathroom.
Good central location for exploring the Scottish Borders; great old buillding in supperb location; good food; pleasant & helpful staff; lift to access upper floors.
Very poor wifi signal, said to be available in all areas, but only obtainable in oublic areas & even then extremely slow.
I stayed for one night only and did not make use of many of the hotel's facilities.
