We loved the ambience and warmth of the hotel. Even though it was the first of May, the central heating was on and a magnificent open (gas) fire blazed in the snug. Despite arriving very late we had a delicious seafood dinner with a lovely bottle of Gewürztraminer. The staff were most pleasant and helpful and the view of the river Tweed at breakfast the next morning was a real treat!
It was such a contrast to our stay in London the night before. I would strongly recommend this hotel to all visitors to this part of Scotland and look forward to a return journey ourselves.
