A very pleasant experience was had in the Grapes Hotel when we poped in for lunch. A family party of six enjoyed a very nice lunch in the Grapes all the food was of an excellent standard with generous helpings. We would be very happy to return in the future for more of the same.

Set on a quiet square in Newcastleton, this inn has free parking immediately outside. We were a little early for check-in but we phoned the number on the door and someone arrived to let us in. They showed us our room (upgraded us to ensuite) and answered all our questions, noting that we needed an early evening meal and that we would be out late (at Kielder Observatory). The lasagne I had for dinner was really nice - we ate in the bar, listening to the buzz of chatty locals. Room 1 was very comfortable. Breakfast next morning in the nicely-furnished restaurant was great and kept us going beyond lunchtime. Since there is also electric car charging nearby (Charge Place Scotland) and Newcastleton is a good base for many activities in the Borders I would definitely want to stay at this comfortable hotel again.

A friend and I was looking for somewhere to stay while cycling from Whitehaven to Tynemouth (following the Reivers route) and we stumbled across the Grapes. What a lovely place!! the Staff were fab (Heather who we saw the most of). Very clean and tidy and somewhere to store our bikes securely. Lots of measures in place to make you feel safe in the current COVIT-19 climate. I would not hesitate to recommend of stay here again.

Had a lunchtime sandwich with chips ( excellent large portion). Haggis with Cheese or something like that. It was delightful.My wife had a chicken and bacon one, which she said was very good too. We had an evening meal later in the week. Both our meals were top class. I had the seafood platter and could not have been more impressed. My wife ordered the sticky toffee pudding, which she shared with me. This was amazing. The best I have had (sorry mother in law and sister in law if you are reading this). Would not hesitate to recommend this for a meal. We did not stay in the Hotel. I hope not leaving a "star rating" for rooms does not affect how highly I would rate this place.

We stayed one night as we had an evening even at Kielder Observatory (30 mins away). I can't think of anywhere I've stayed where the staff have been friendlier. From the owner to the cleaners everyone was genuinely welcoming and lovely. The food was fantastic - we both had lamb shank special and the meat was tender, the gravy rich, the potatoes creamy and the veg fresh. Breakfast the next day was also excellent. The hotel is nothing fancy but it's clean and comfy. The town is small but has a lovely riverside walk and I think longer walks too and it seems to be a centre for mountain bike trails.
