We stayed here recently for a few days as part of our honeymoon. We were delighted with our room and the resident's lounge and the very warm welcome.. thanks for the bottle of bubbly! We enjoyed this part of the world, tasty breakfast and lots of interesting stories over breakfast! Would definitely stay again if wanting somewhere in this area.

We were welcomed to the Old Priory by Robin, who was so helpful, not only did he show us aroung the beautiful accommodation but was most helpful in recommending places to eat and what to see. We were a group of 3 up in Kelso for a wedding. The rooms were fantastic. the bed sheets, were crisp and white, plenty of space in the rooms, with furniture to die for. Lots of fluffy white towels and the shower was powerful and hot! Lovely shutters on the windows, which were closed for us in the evening whilst and out and also our bed turned down. The haddock at breakfast was the best I've ever tasted for years. I had it both mornings, although there was plenty of choice with a vegetarian option if required. The guest sitting room was huge but at the same time managing to maintain a sophisticated, classy cosiness, with three big sofa's, television, c.d facilities, book and games. Unfortunately it rained the whole time we stayed so we didn't get the opportunity to sit in the wonderful garden. The Old Priory is central to everything in Kelso. It was an abolute treat to stay there and made our weekend even more memorable. I can safely say we will be going back. Hopefully before the end of the year.

We received a very warm welcome and enjoyed a comfortable visit. The breakfast was perfect - well cooked and well presented.
The Priory was steeped in history.
I would come again - thank you.

We stayed at The Old Priory one night and absolutely loved it. The room was spacious, clean and the hostess charming. There were several options available for breakfast, including vegetarian and a hospitality tray with local specialties in the room was a nice touch. Definetly would stay there again.

The two braxies and the cowpit sheep had a fab three nights here. The accommodation was first class, Mandy was an excellent hostess and cook. We had fun and lots of good advice about eating places and things to do. Cocktails good at the Queen's Head and Cobblers. Food also good at these places. Floors well worth a visit and we bought really nice jewellery in the b and b. Would definitely stay again. Thanks.

I had a warm scottish welcome on my very late arrival and bags taken up to my room. The room was gorgeous and the bed the best I've slept in. The cooked breakfast was lovely and the service wonderful... Mandy was a great host and chef, nothing was too much trouble. Was great to meet her. Great value for money and with free wifi too.

An absolutely wonderful place to stay. The owners were on holiday at the time of our stay but this did not retract at all. We were very well looked after by Mandy, who was a very friendly and attentive host, she also makes the most wonderful breakfasts to order. The house is beautiful and vey charmingly decorated. The family room is outstanding, clean and comfortable. There is a large, comfortable lounge containing books, games, chess board etc which almost invites you in to enjoy. I cannot rate The Old Priory high enough.
Thank you for a lovely stay.
