This country house hotel is a hidden gem. The rooms are newly refurbished and extremely comfortable and it has been a pleasure to return once again to find the same warm friendly welcome from Mr and Mrs Moore. We enjoyed the evening meal which surpassed all of our expectations. Chef takes full advantage of local quality produce and his expertise in the kitchen is reflected in the satisfaction of the diners. We enjoyed a hearty full english breakfast in the morning before sadly bidding the Marchbank farewell until our next visit.

Room Tip: Four poster room at the front has alovely view down to the river but they are all very nice.

I have now stayed at this hotel on a couple of occasions. It is a quiet peaceful hotel. The food is fabulous. However the reputation of the hotel is based on the hospitality of the owner and staff. They are the most helpful, welcoming, hosts one could ever wish to meet.

I stayed at the March Bank Hotel for 1 night on the 5th June 2011. I had choosen to stay there for no other reason than the location it is in but will certainly stay for longer in future.
From beginning to end I found the staff friendly ,welcoming and they went out of their way to be helpful and the standards of service would put most so-called "big name" hotels to shame.
The hotel has stunning views over the Esk valley and is ideally situated on the border of Scotland and England combining in my opinion the best standards of service of both countries. The evening meal and choice of menu available were exceptional as was the breakfast .The room was spotlessly clean ,decorated to a high standard and very comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel as a must stay!

Ideal for a peaceful stay in a quiet location. We stayed in a lovely room with a four poster bed. The best thing about our stay was hotel owner Richard's personal attention to detail and his excellent cooking both at dinner and breakfast. The location is great for travellers from the south to Scotland or vice versa.

As soon as we arrived we knew it was going to be an excellent stay with the friendly, welcoming staff there to greet us.
We had a lovely romantic room with a four poster bed with panoramic views over looking the river.
The restaurant was newly referbed and was excellently themed for valentines day (no tack). The food was sublime and could not be faulted! The service was excellent and very helpful.
The hotel is in an excellent location, we went for fabulous walks down by the river and through the woodland.
Overall it was a very relaxed weekend and cant wait to stay again!

We had been looking for a quiet country hotel on our trip back to Scotland and chose the Marchbank after much research on the internet. Richard phoned us as we travelled north to check when we would be arriving and arranged for a dinner table to be ready for us. When we arrived we were greeted on first name terms and all the staff were delightfully friendly and made us feel at home immediately. Room 5 had a lovely four poster bed and super views over the countryside and the nearby river where most of the fish on the menu is caught.

I have stayed in many hotels over the years on business and have to say that dinner was one of the best meals I have ever had. There was a superb choice of local country fare including smoked salmon, trout, venison & wood pigeon medallions in a red wine sauce, sirloin steak with a pepper sauce, lobster thermidore, scallops in garlic soy sauce, and a range of superb desserts, all at reasonable prices and prepared by Richard himself. The staff were all very attentive and cheery to top it all. Breakfast was excellent with either a full English breakfast, omlettes stuffed with salmon, or kippers cooked on an AGA in double cream.

The room was well decorated and comfortable whilst the hotel itself was what you would expect of a country house with pictures of wildlife, some stuffed animals and ancient guns on the walls. It seems to be popular with anglers and those with wildlife / outdoor pursuits, who often stay for a week at a time. It perhaps would not suit animal rights activists but for anyone else who is looking for a friendly small country hotel with excellent food, this is one not to miss.
