Good Hotel Guide Review
On the market square of a pretty Borders town, the Henderson family has owned and run this well-established hotel for nearly 50 years. Flower boxes fronting the listed 18th-century building extend a colourful welcome; inside, the popular restaurant (dark wood, light tartans, trophy fish) and bistro bar satisfy diners hungry for modern Scottish dishes, light lunchtime bites and hearty suppers. Bedrooms are tastefully decorated in soothing shades; each has tea- and coffee-making facilities and Scottish toiletries. A sustaining breakfast supports the next day’s activities: golfing, walking, fishing on the River Tweed, or wandering the lively town. The Hendersons also own The Townhouse, across the street.
