As part of the Borders Abbeys Way, a group of friends chose to stay at this very comfortable B&B. Despite it being a miserable, wet day (typical British summer), we were delighted to stay at this very spacious accommodation run by a friendly family. Hizzy's is dedicated to the memory of a local motor biker, Steve Hislop (see web-site). There were therefore memorabilia of his short career, around the property.
All the rooms contain a double bed and a single bed. It was therefore fantastic for the single travellers amongst us to learn that we would be charged according to the bed slept in, i.e. no single supplement.
An added bonus was Mikey's room. A surprise guest was included in his tariff (see photo)!
Another bonus was the handy array of room accessories...iron, ironing board, playing cards, show shine kit, hair drier, although their taste in occasional tables is dubious...
The owners were so welcoming, we felt part of the family - you definitely need a sense of humour; the breakfast guide is a masterpiece!
Hizzy's is close to a wide range of eateries: Indian, Italian, chippie, etc. The Indian (Shebab) was particularly good and very popular with the locals.
