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).

Guest comments

'An excellent small family-run hotel in a lovely Borders town. Our room was one of those which had been recently refurbished so while rather small it was immaculate. We took evening meals in the lively bar both nights, listening to the conversation of salmon fishermen! Good beer. Excellent mains and superb desserts. ' - John Saul - May, 2013
