Good Hotel Guide Review
‘An excellent base’ for exploring the Tweed valley, Lisa and Steve Davies’s ‘great-value’ guest house is in a small town surrounded by ‘beautiful rolling countryside’. Guests, including many returnees, laud the friendly welcome and home-baked treats on offer. ‘Clean, pleasant and comfortable’, bedrooms have a simple country air, a modern bathroom and all the amenities (tea- and coffee-making facilities, fresh milk, a radio/alarm clock); secondary glazing reduces traffic noise. There are ‘lovely’ walks to be had nearby; indoors, the hosts provide books, board games, and a blazing fire in the drawing room. Seasonal Scottish dishes are served at dinner in the conservatory café several nights a week; breakfast is ‘beautiful’.
