Good Hotel Guide Review
In the centre of a pretty Borders town, this ‘excellent’, well-established hotel near the banks of the River Tweed has been run by the Henderson family for 46 years. The 18th-century building on the High Street is a low-key, welcoming place, with smartly styled bedrooms (good Scottish toiletries, too) and a locally well-regarded restaurant. Spend the day fishing, golfing or walking, then return for chef Trevor Williams’s modern Scottish dishes at dinner. Lunches and casual suppers may be taken in the bar, where a whisky menu has more than 90 single malts. The Hendersons also own The Townhouse, across the street (see main entry). Handy for the historic Borders Railway – the Tweedbank station is a five-minute drive away.
Visit a museum that follows the history of the railway line from its conception through to the present day.
