Good Hotel Guide Review
In springtime, daffodils blanket the lawns around this secluded baronial mansion; in all seasons, the extensive grounds – the historic walled garden, mile-long nature trail, sculptures and outdoor games – invite exploration. Inside, log fires, a frescoed ceiling, custom-created tartan and an old service bell in the public rooms add to the grand ambience, though ‘friendly’ 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, sit down to seasonal Borders produce in the Sutherland restaurant, whose vista stretches down the valley to Peebles.
