Delighted to return to this wonderful B & B and a warm welcome from Robin and family. Comfortable, clean, great breakfast, and every possible help given. The garden room is a lovely new addition, and the arrival of the 3 friendly greyhounds since my last visit was an unexpected delight! Cannot recommend highly enough.

We stayed for two nights and throughly enjoyed every aspect. Location, room, breakfasts, facilities including the very impressive and comfortable visitor's lounge. Our lounge at home will never seem the same! Robin was the perfect host.

Good old-fashioned hospitality, comfortable rooms and great breakfast. Robin was the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble for him. We will certainly return to The Old Priory when next in this area

We stayed three nights so the average price for our room was excellent! Our room was very clean, plenty of hot water, lots of white fluffy towels and they even had tumblers and wine glasses at the ready!! Breakfast was very good, nothing was too much trouble for our host! Call me old fashioned, but our beds were turned back at night along with the shutters and curtains being drawn whilst we were out - such a lovely gesture!! The only downside, if it was a downside, is we couldn't always get wi-fi or phone reception in our room. This is a perfect location to stay for the Showground or for using as a base and travelling around. Kelso is very much an up and coming market town with lots of very nice individual shops.

We stayed here for one night for my husband's birthday at the beginning of June. The whole place was lovely and homely, and our host was very friendly. The room was very well appointed, and our breakfast was delicious. Would definitely recommend it.

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.

Room Tip: We stayed in the king room on the front of the house. Peaked in other rooms when possible and all se...
