Good Hotel Guide Review
Spend your day fishing on the River Tweed, golfing or walking, then unwind at this ‘excellent’, well-established 18th century hotel on the High Street of a pretty Borders town. The Henderson family have been at the helm for nearly 50 years. It offers, a warm welcome, 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 chef Trevor Williams’s modern Scottish dishes, including Borders beef fillet, wild mushroom gratin, heritage carrots, pomme Anna, natural jus. Light bites and ‘mash’ single malts are served in the bar. The Hendersons also own The Townhouse, across the street (see main entry).
Visit a museum that follows the history of the railway line from its conception through to the present day.
