Score from 108 reviews Very good
Lovey Bar and Restaurant. Nice Pool and Sauna was a bonus.
Loved the French waiter, food,fire and comfy sofas
Hard mattress and lumpy pillows. Shower not powerful had to hold it over you to get hair washed
A large spacious, comfortable room. Good, promptly served breakfast.
I stayed on a very cold, stormy night and I was a little cold in my room, but was ok once I got to bed and this would definitely not put me off coming back here again when I can.
Nice welcome and very pleasant staff. Even in the depths of winter the location is enchanting
They won the award for the coldest room I've ever stayed in - but winter did arrive quickly. I'm sure if I had mentioned the situation they would have sorted - (I arrived very late.)
The weather was wintry, but we enjoyed our stay. The hotel staff were excellent - friendly and efficient - and the food was tasty local produce. Being in the heart of Sir Walter Scott's country, the landscapes were impressive and the towns were steeped in history. Just the right place if you want a break from the city.
We did manage to get online, but the Wi-Fi system seemed unduly complicated. A snooker table for bad weather days would be an asset.
everything! Comfortable room, excellent staff. Yummy breakfast. Lovely relaxed dinner with great food.
Not having more time to explore the surrounding countryside.
As we thought the hotel was in an excellent location, that it offered excellent value for money so much so, we will most certainly go back in the better weather and to take in the lovely grounds that surround the hotel.
Traditional ,tastefully furnished Scottish hotel ,excellent food, service,spacious inside and out ,hassle-free car parking.Very helpful reception staff. Excellent out of season value.
Sign posting (in the dark)from the main road (a68 ) was poor and could be easily improved.Not everyone has sat-nav !
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.
