Spent a week of Borders research with Sue & Robin in their wonderful Georgian home in very charming Kelso. There is no match for their genuine concern over their hospitality for my return to the Tower Room and their support of a wonderful visit in the area. Even the trades people of the town smile wistfully and say, "they have...

Stayed just for one night in the excellent company of Robin & Sue. The en suite room was beautifully decorated, and the bed was very comfortable. It is ideally situated in the heart of the town, and as we were travelling by motorcycle, the off street parking was an added bonus. We had an excellent breakfast the following morning. We...

Thank you it was great to see you again for the races. Hope that you will enjoy the marmalade, next time we will try to do the Library like last time. Thank you for the contribution to Emily's Macmillan Coffee morning, it was very kind, we raised £283.06 not bad for a 12 year old (good genes!) See you soon...

We spent Friday and Saturday nights at this hotel. The hotel is a beautiful building which has exceptional decor. We had a family room, there were only two of us so we had lots of space. The main room itself was a good size and the king size bed was very comfortable. Luxurious bedding and nice fluffy towels. Our hosts...

Nigel Like you we are disturbed by the ease that Bennyboy could lie especially since you, Malcolm, Graeme and the two Simon's were occupying all the rooms but that is the joy of the internet, hiding behind anonymity, lying through his teeth and just being generally annoying. Some people have small lives. I feel for my cleaner, being pulled down...

Stayed at The Old Priory last weekend as me & my dad were completing the last stage of the Pennine Way. It's a beautiful old building that's been sympathetically converted to a lovely B&B. The hosts were really friendly & helpful & Robin's breakfasts were excellent. I'd definitely return & would highly recommend it

Robin and Susan Girdwood were the perfect hosts for a fabulous three days in the Border Towns of Scotland. Both a cold breakfast bar and hot selections are available and Robin shared great insights into travel destinations. We ended up visiting the Dryburgh Abbey due to his suggestion and loved it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Old Priory is a gem of a house half in 1796, when it was built, and half in the modern world. We straddle the gap between Woodmarket and the old world of Abbey Row which houses Kelso Abbey. The aim is for us to provide comfort at a reasonable price, atmosphere and charm as befits the age of our home.
