Good Hotel Guide Review
A ‘little jewel’ in a secluded setting, this small baronial mansion is enveloped by sweeping manicured lawns within acres of woodland. Inside, ‘friendly’ staff, mainly local, impart a homely feel. Log fires, a wooden staircase, hand-painted ceiling and an old service bell in public rooms add to the grand ambience. Each of the pristine bedrooms is unique, all beautifully appointed, with a comfy bed and ‘lovely toiletries’. Some are snug, some modern; each has garden and hillside views. The extensive grounds include sculptures, a walled kitchen garden. Seasonal Borders produce is used for unpretentious dishes and seven-course tasting menus, served under a frescoed ceiling in the restaurant, overlooking lawns and down the valley to Peebles.
