Just spent 5 days at the Grapes Hotel in Newcastleton. Hotel was excellent and I would recommend . The room was clean and warm with fresh towels everyday. The meals were very good maybe a bit too much in quantity but could not fault the quality, especially the sweets 😃. Thank you to Gail and Peter for their hospitality. Hope... More

Myself and my girlfriend decided on a last minute trip away. Initially we wanted kielder but could not find anywhere that was available so looked further afield. Stumbled across the grapes hotel in newcastleton. Why not, we thought? When we got there we were greeted with a medium sized functional room with bottled water, teas, coffees and a kettle and...

Very nice accommodation, lovely meals and would definitely recommend to others. The wi-fi wasnt working when we were there but it was a temporary issue but overall a very nice stay and very welcoming hosts.

We booked a double room on Expedia & was happy for our young son to share the bed but was offered a larger family room on arrival owing to a cancellation. We were happy to overlook the damp on the wall and the blocked toilet but neither of the bedside lamps worked, the matress was old & uncomfortable and the... More

Stayed for a couple of nights when attending a conference at Kielder. The rooms are well lived in, but it is a great and cheap place to stay. My bed was super comfy and I slept very well indeed. The good sleep helped me eat the super breakfast - what's not to like about butcher bought sausages and tremendous Haggis... More

Just come back from another weekend at Newcastleton where we stayed at The Grapes Hotel. We couldn't have been made more welcome by the staff. The rooms were clean and functional and the breakfasts excellent value for money. The daytime menue was really good and the "Light Bite" menu was more than adequate to fill us. In terms of value...

We always head to the Grapes when in Newcastleton and it never dissapoints. Fantastic food and friendly staff. Dog friendly lounge and bar area. However there is now a gift shop in the lounge and whilst the jewellery cabinets are a nice touch the tacky disney products are not and spoil the place.
