Me & the missus had a couple days walking in the Borders & after looking at a few places we chose the Traquair Arms as we had our dog with us. Friendly staff & a lovely setting in the centre of Innerleithen. Kristian behind the bar was great, pulling pints, serving meals & booking in guests. Poor lad was run off his feet.
We had room 10 with the dog & although it's a little tired, it's big enough & well equipped, for the very reasonable price. Radiator was red hot & an electric back up, as I guess they've had bother before. The only gripe being the bathroom was a little grubby with an odd stain in the bath & could do with an upgrade as some of the grouting round the bath was a bit mouldy.
We walked a few miles up towards Cordronna & back on the day we arrived & decided to eat at the hotel. I had fish & chips & the wife had smoked haddock risotto. Both pretty good & piping hot. Full Scottish next morning was spot on & not greasy as per some other reviews, with plenty of toast etc. very busy at breakfast with families, cyclists & other walkers & again the poor lass was v busy but service was excellent & without fuss.
We had great walk up into the hills around Windlestraw Law & back along the Tweed. Weather was exceptional & we ate at the Indian's on the high street, which was top notch. Beer garden to rear was also very nice place to enjoy a pint in the sun.
In summary we had a great time staying at the a Traquair Arms & would return.
