Good Hotel Guide Review
Praise pours in for Stephen and Lisa Davies’s ‘great-value’, ‘very welcoming’ Victorian guest house in the Tweed valley – ‘a little patch of undiscovered Scotland’. Outdoorsy adventures in the Borders, many from the door, are plentiful. Indoor pursuits, too, with books, board games, and a blazing fire in the high-ceilinged drawing room where the ‘super hosts’ offer tea and home-baked treats. Simply furnished bedrooms have tea-/coffee-making facilities, fresh milk, a radio/alarm clock, and ‘spotless’ modern bathrooms; secondary glazing reduces traffic noise. Five nights a week, Stephen Davies cooks ‘excellent’ seasonal Scottish food in the atmospheric dining room. Breakfast is served until 10 am; ‘poached eggs done to perfection’. A coffee shop is planned.
