Good Hotel Guide Review
In walking country, this Edwardian stone house, originally built for a mill owner’s bride, is today a fine small hotel owned by Sylvia and John Matthews. Elegantly updated bedrooms with Tweed valley views are fresh and bright in a modern country style; each is supplied with biscuits, bathrobes, a capsule coffee machine. For a soak of historic proportions, book the room with the original Edwardian bath in the bathroom. An open fire in the sitting room is just right for pre-dinner drinks and home-made canapés; in the wood-panelled dining room, Stu Waterston’s seasonal modern Scottish cooking uses home-grown vegetables from the kitchen garden and restored greenhouse. Ruined abbeys and storeyed mansions are within reach; the Southern Upland Way is barely further afield.
