While visiting the Borders we needed just one night and found an offer for one night's dinner, bed and breakfast with a glass of wine on arrival. It looked good on the internet so we booked. Wow, a pity we could only stay one night as we were so impressed on arrival. The drive from the gatehouse is a delight with rhododendrons at the moment and the charming receptionist's welcome was exemplary. The day was cool so were were directed to a lovely lounge with an open fire and given our glasses of wine while our bags were transported to our room. We had been placed on the very top floor, a nice big room with a view over the parkland towards the river. The furnishings were chosen to be in-keeping with the Victorian origin of the house but were nearer the servants end of the scale compared to the other parts of the hotel we saw later. No doubt, if we had been on a higher price tariff we would have been offered a more superior room. The dining room where we ate later is lovely, with a floor to ceiling window giving a view of the parkland. The menu was suitably chosen for a hotel with a sporting link; fishing and shooting can be arranged, with elements involving game associated with the area. The meal was excellent and the wine choice good. Likewise, breakfast was well up to expectation. The whole hotel has been furnished and decorated in a style appropriate to its origins. The artworks are suitably period and can be found in the stunning central lounge on the first floor as well as the drawing room and on the superb staircase and gallery. I would very much hope to be able to stay here again when I next need to visit the Border region.
