A lovely hotel. Nice big double room. Bed comfortable. Two chairs to sit and relax. Food good. We also had lunch and dinner. The restaurant tables were well spaced out. We felt safe eating here. We enjoyed sitting outside to have drinks. Marie and Ian were very friendly. A most enjoyable weekend.

Very disappointed with the hotel response due to late cancellation. My daughter was instructed to self isolate due to a positive test in her class room, but the hotel insisted that we would be charged in full in respect of our family reservation, despite our wishing to cancel to protect the hotel and its guests. We suggested an alternative date but that was not acceptable. Very poor response and we will be staying at the Townhouse in Melrose going forward.

Good morning Mrs Morgan, We trust you and your family are coping at this time of self isolation and accept that it is extremely frustrating and disappointing when Covid-19 impacts on plans made. I would ask you to please check your credit card statement and refer to our previous email as you will note you have not been charged in full for the reservation cancelled. This was discussed with you in the telephone conversation when the reservation was cancelled the day prior to your arrival date. We hope you enjoy your next trip to the beautiful Scottish Borders and once again we wish you safe and well.

Beautiful hotel in beautiful surroundings - excellent food - excellent service - can’t wait to go back. Ian & Marie, along with their team make you feel so welcome. From the minute you walk through the door you feel totally relaxed. Plenty of places nearby to visit. Lovely walks very close by. No hesitation in recommending.
