Welcoming, clean, safe - great base for Borders!
Warm welcome by Moira, and upgrade to a bigger room as the hotel was quiet. Extremely clean and with very stringent COVID procedures so I felt very safe. I had full board stay for 3 nights and they made it all very welcoming and relaxed. Food was lovely! Room large with good bed and a great shower. Big car park and short walk to interesting small shops. Would definitely recommend them!

Within these strange times we find ourselves in it was a brilliant stay, quiet and with all the regulations in place. The lady who dealt with me Moira was so professional but also nice to have a chat too. When back up here I will definitely stay again. This is the first hotel in 5 months and was really happy with the stay.
