My husband and I stayed 3 nights in Kelso at the Old Priory in order to explore the Scottish Borders. We could not have picked a better B&B. Robin is VERY knowledgable of the area, with both the historical and quirky bits; areal pleasure to have a conversation with him. The home is beautifully maintained with a nice melding of the original and newer parts (a lovely conservatory). The bed and pillows were great. A very nice touch to have the bed turned down and the shutters closed in the evening. I think this speaks to the passion Robin holds towards ensuring his house guest are treated well and made to feel special. You could spend hours looking at all the antiques and aspects of the house.
The breakfast was GREAT. Orders are placed at night and then freshly cooked for you. We tried the smoked haddock, salmon and scrambled eggs, the sausages .....all cooked to perfection and really tasty. Lots of other choices too that we saw being gobbled up with the same enthusiasm:)
The Old Priory is a special place and we are glad we chose it and would recommend to others without hesitation.
