Good Hotel Guide Review
A welcoming sanctuary for outdoorsy types, Kate and Gordon Innes’s town-centre hotel provides storage for fishing rods, guns and bicycles, as well as knowledgeable details on activities in the Scottish Borders. Built as a hotel in the early 19th century by French prisoners of war, it’s now a popular spot for afternoon teas and cocktail evenings. Locals and residents mingle over real ales beside the lounge’s open fire, or in the informal bistro. In the high-ceilinged, chandelier-lit restaurant, Alejandro Wunderlin’s seasonal Scottish food includes braised lamb shank, ratatouille, mash, red wine jus. In both the main building and an annexe (connected by a glass-sided corridor), neat bedrooms have tweedy accessories; some overlook the river to the hills beyond.
