Good Hotel Guide Review
Much praise this year for Stephen and Lisa Davies’s ‘good-value’, ‘highly recommended’ 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 are well represented too, with books, board games, and a blazing fire in the drawing room where guests arrive to ‘a friendly welcome’ from the ‘super hosts’, including tea, home-baked treats. ‘Our room was clean, pleasant, but quite small,’ wrote a Guide inspector, ‘with very few toiletries’. Five nights a week, Stephen Davies serves ‘excellent’ seasonal Scottish cuisine in the atmospheric dining room. ‘Our marvellous venison was cooked to perfection.’ Breakfast, served until 10 am, is ‘lovely, just the right amount.’
