Good Hotel Guide Review
In sweeping lawns within acres of woodland, this secluded baronial mansion is a ‘little jewel’. Inside, log fires, a frescoed ceiling, custom-created tartan and an old service bell in public rooms add to the grand ambience, though ‘friendly’, mainly local, staff encourage an easy, home-away-from-home feel. Individually decorated bedrooms and suites vary in size and style: some are snug, some more modern; all have views over the green grounds. At lunch and dinner, seasonal Borders produce is served in the Sutherland restaurant, whose vista stretches down the valley to Peebles. The extensive grounds invite exploration, with sculptures, a listed walled garden, a one-mile nature trail and outdoor games.
