Good Hotel Guide Review
Ideal for the outdoorsy traveller – and with plenty to please indoorsy types – Stephen and Lisa Davies’s ‘good-value’ Victorian guest house in the Tweed valley is a ‘highly recommended’ base for travellers exploring the Scottish Borders. Guests in 2017 praised the ‘excellent food’, ‘good-sized bedrooms’, and ‘friendly welcome, with tea and home-baked treats’. There are books, games and a blazing fire in the drawing room; bedrooms are ‘rustic but nice’ (‘though we thought our bathroom needed a little updating,’ one Guide reader said). Stephen Davies serves seasonal Scottish cuisine in the candlelit dining room, five nights a week. (Room snacks are available when the restaurant is closed; alternatively, restaurants in town are a short walk away.) Breakfast (‘exceptional’) is served until 10 am.
