Good Hotel Guide Review

‘A genuine delight to stay in.’ The Henderson family’s ‘hard-to-fault’ town-centre hotel receives an upgrade to a full entry this year thanks to regular Guide correspondents who praised the ‘well-appointed bedrooms’, and ‘unfailingly charming and helpful staff, who go out of their way to provide good service’. It is ‘well situated’ for the historic Borders town – still lively today with its butcher, baker and candlestick purveyor – as well as for exploration further afield: ‘there’s good walking nearby, and lots of places of interest’. Individually styled bedrooms have modern wallcoverings and contemporary fittings; bathrooms are supplied with Scottish-made toiletries. Large superior rooms have a comfortable seating area. ‘Our light, spacious room was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean.’ At lunch and dinner, the informal brasserie’s the place to be: chef Johnny Millar’s ‘excellent, good-value’ dishes are accompanied by an ‘imaginative’ wine list. (Save space for the sticky toffee pudding ‘to die for’.) Breakfast, with Scottish stalwarts porridge and kippers, is ‘excellent every day’. Sister hotel Burts is across the street (see Shortlist entry). (Andrew Warren, and others)
