Better than a hotel
I was very impressed with the the standards of this house and the owners were very friendly and welcoming. I have stayed in a few hotels and this was by far the best sleep I’ve had in a bed away from home very comfortable. Loved all the little thing ever down to having a small bottle of milk in the fridge for your room excellent and less plastic has to be good. Will definitely be back and definitely recommend this place.

Beautifully clean. Great location
Room & en-suite were lovely-beautifully clean & tastefully decorated. Ian & Ruth were very friendly & helpful with some very thoughtful touches such as fresh milk for each room. Good location, good choice of breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend.

Overnight in Berwick
Comfortable one night stay en route to Edinburgh. Friendly welcome from Ian who helped sort out where and when to park. Tip - from 4.30pm you can park outside until 10am the next day, if you can get a space. Otherwise it’s a free car park nearby. Immaculate room - very clean and neat, we were in room 4. In fact the whole house is immaculate. Good nights sleep, the shutters really dampen any noise from the road and the curtains ensure it’s nice and dark. Nice breakfast and a good chat with Ruth who gave us a few suggestions of what to explore in Berwick for the couple of hours we were staying in the morning. All in all a great little guest house.
