We visited on a three day groupon deal and nothing was too much trouble. Tommy and Susan and all the staff were so accommodating, helpful, thoughtful and overall amazing. We were directed to all the things we wanted to do and needed for our trip. Despite fact we booked too late to get a double room, every effort was made...

We experienced superb hospitality during our stay in this delightful recently renovated Hotel. Our room was smallish yet had a cosy and welcoming home from home feel, excellent comfortable bedding and a superb en suite bathroom with power shower. We were delighted that we could also take our dog along on our visit. The staff could really not have been...

Stayed here for 2 nights and was not disappointed. The rooms were beautifully decorated, food was just delicious. Both breakfast and our evening meals cooked to perfection. I can thoroughly recommend the steak pie and the Gordon Burger. All the staff were very friendly and loved to chat. We will definitely be going back for a visit again.

The Gordon Arms is situated in quite a remote rural location between Selkirk and St Mary's Loch that takes about 20 minutes to drive.. Its well worth the trip for the excellent quality and selection of pub food. The prices and portions are good and you will not regret stopping for a bite to eat. St Mary's Loch is just...

We were passing by and stopped for a break and a bite to eat. It is a nice pub with very friendly and helpful staff. We had a very tasty lunch. It is well worth just going a drive to go here for a meal and I am sure I will be back.

When we visited a year ago the Gordon Arms was closed for a complete rebuild from the ashes of a devastating fire. On our return this month for lunch, it was open, bustling with dining and bar rooms full of happy customers. We ordered the famous Gordon Burger and some fine ale. The food, drink, atmosphere and service were all...

Every couple of months, we pop down to this beautiful inn, for a drink and a snack. It doesn't matter how long we've left between visits, we're always given the same warm welcome. Recently renovated, the pub is looking wonderful, with great beers and delicious food at great prices. Today, we were delighted to find the place busy with a...
