The amazingly helpful and friendly staff The size of the rooms The speed to the wifi The good food
The room was a little tired (the first time is seen a CRT TV in years!) Bed, linen, decor all in need of a refresh
old charm and staff helpfulness
all a bit tired - faded grandeur but perfectly serviceable
Quiet place to stay if you need to relax
This is a lovely hotel and I would not hesitate to stay here again. Our room was very well appointed with everything you require for a restful stay. The food was excellent and the staff were extremely helpful. The swimming pool was a very relaxing end to a busy day and thoroughly enjoyed by us both.
Our room was a little small although it did have everything that we needed for out stay.
We loved the friendliness of all the staff, and the food was excellent, they also love having dogs to stay, which made Pablo very happy.
The staff very friendly and helpful. Food was very good and portions ample . Room nice
The in room television apparatus out of date. Wifi connections bad.
Staff couldn't do enough for you. Excellent location for exploring the Borders. Good choice of food , well cooked Reasonable prices for wines and drinks. Large comfortable rooms
Lovely hotel, friendly and helpful staff.
More staff needed
Lovely restaurant, friendly staff, stunning setting
The kitchen and waiting staff need to improve. Breakfast and dinner service seemed to be a struggle even though the menu (breakfast) is basic and nothing out of the normal for a standard level hotel.
Location Restaurant and bar staff friendly and helpful Good size room comfortable bed
Decor was outdated TV outdated Wifi didn't work in our room
The hotel and the setting
The service was atrocious, no clue about good customer service.
The location is wonderful. The swimming pool was good. Staff were welcoming.
Service at dinner and breakfast was quite slow.
The location, which is magnificent, the people who ran it, nice rooms, the food was pretty good, not much to dislike!
It was a little bit tired in the furnishing department. Maybe have more beers on tap?
The Staff were wonderful and very attentive The venue and setting beautiful Breakfast very good
The room (superior) was tired worn out carpets, TV that was from the Arc The Wifi was pretty useless and so slow I asked the General Manager to ring me yesterday to discuss our -stay no response to date ! Stair carpets threadbare and worn out
Wonderful situation, lovely helpful staff, perfect for a relaxing getaway. Room was clean and great view. Breakfast almost too much, so much to choose from - fabulous.
Rather limited menu for dinner if you're not a fish eater and also a vegetarian. Rooms are a little tired but wouldn't expect total modernity in a building of this age. Not keen on dogs being allowed into the restaurant at mealtimes.
gorgeous hotel in a lovely location right near the abbey. Food very good
Drybergh Abbey Hotel Is very Scottish in its having a “laid back”, relaxing and friendly atmosphere in a very distinguished house with a magnificent view on the Tweed….we immediately felt at home, and what a beautiful home. We also did hour long walks, along the river, among flowering bushes, in the forest. From the hotel, one can walk left, right and enjoy the most fabulous walks. We would have done more walks had the general manager of the hotel Mark Wallace not taken us on the Tweed river and so kindly taught us to fly fishing …. Our catch was good (3 fish) we concluded our teacher was excellent. We enjoyed visiting the lovely towns of Melrose and Kelso nearby. And regretfully left the hotel after two nights and to days as we would have loved to do more encouraged by the spirit of Sir Walter Scott, remaining in peace in the Abbey next to the hotel. We will be back!
A lovely location on the River Tweed. Very peaceful.
Disappointing that it advertises views of the Abbey next door but this is now impossible due to the growth of trees on the boundary.
Great looking hotel built in the local red sandstone brick by the Tweed and next to the Abbey ruins Good location to visit Kelso and Melrose Abbeys and Floors estate The Wallace memorial is placed nearby and great easy path to access.Warm swimming pool and sauna a great plus with spacious rooms and lift
Everything about the hotel was very pleasing.food was really good and staff very helpful.
Located in an wonderfull place, well keep, beautifull rooms ( ask for rooms with sight ), excelent restaurant
This is a beautiful building in beautiful surroundings. The staff were very helpful and were the only reason why we continued our stay.
The rooms were far below the standard expected in a 4 star hotel. The first room we were allocated was dull dirty and dismal. The external window frames were rotten and looked over a balcony containing planters full of weeds. After two hours we decided to leave and we spoke to a young lady who was very sympathetic. We accepted her offer to view 3 other rooms, one of which we chose. This was a larger room but it still did not come up to our expectations. The television was at least 20 years old, a Sanyo on a stand with a Freeview receiver. The carpets were worn and stained. The bed was badly needing replacing. Copies of the menus were dog-eared and dirty and reflected poorly on what was available in the dining room. The bathroom was dirty and had accumulated filth in the corners. The toilet seat was cheap plastic. Neither of us dared to walk barefoot over the bathroom floor. The housekeeping in this hotel requires urgent upgrading.
- Good location and nice grounds - good food choice at breakfast served in a pleasant sunny room - good background information on the hotel supplied 'in room' - hotel right next door to historic Dryburgh Abbey
- slow and disorganised dinner service
The staff are all local people born and bred and are very friendly.
