Good Hotel Guide Review
After a day spent fishing on the River Tweed, golfing or walking, a warm welcome awaits at this ‘excellent’, well-established 18th-century hotel on the High Street of a pretty Borders town. It offers unobtrusive staff and individually styled bedrooms with earthy hues, and a bathroom with Scottish toiletries. In the restaurant, dark wood, light tartans, trophy fish, and modern Scottish dishes, including fillet of beef, dauphinoise potatoes, sautéed wild mushrooms, baby carrots, thyme jus. Lunch and supper menus and ‘mash’ single malts are served in the Bistro bar. A sustaining breakfast supports the next day’s activities. The Henderson family, who have been at the helm for nearly 50 years, also own The Townhouse, across the street.
