Always nice to come back to the place we got married. They've done the Kingsknowe up and it looks incredible. The food was spot on As it always is. I'd recommend you trying the banoffee pie and fetch your camera.

Went for lunch and was very surprised to find the bar and eating area had been completely renovated. Food was excellent and staff pleasant. Will definitely return especially as we thought the new decor is lovely and the alteration and upgrading of the toilets has been very well done.

We were served a tasty 2 course set menu in a beautiful room and with excellent service. Everyone had a lovely time in relaxed surroundings and thoroughly enjoyed their evening. This is a good venue for an informal visit or more formal function. The atmosphere is warm, friendly and it's very tastefully decorated with plenty of character and interior features.

Visited recently for a family wedding on a cold and windy day. Welcome inside very warm indeed. Good organisation over all aspects from ceremony to meal. Staff were extremely helpful and efficient. Meal was very good quality and everyone commented how much they enjoyed it. Lots of nice touches in the hotel decor which make it seem more of a...

We booked one night as we were attending a funeral in Galashiels. We arrived late after an 8 hr drive. Kitchen was closed but they made us sandwiches to have with our drinks in the bar. Great welcome and great service late in the evening. Room was large, bed very comfortable. Everything we needed was provided. Glad of a tea...

Visited here on Thursday 19th January with a colleague as our last night in Scotland after already being in Scotland for 4 nights already. We arrived after a long journey from west of Glasgow. We were met and shown to our rooms which were idle. We were very hungry and went down to the bar, it was amazing to see...

I stay in a lot of hotels due to my job and mostly they are part of a big chain and whilst very good, all look and feel the same. I love this hotel for two reasons - the first is that it has character and was once and old house and still has that feel around the corridors and...

This is a Victorian baronial mansion with an Edwardian conservatory, set in lawns with views across the River Tweed - very impressive. Don't be put off by the short drive through a modern housing estate to reach the hotel grounds. Our rooms were most comfortable - very roomy, with spacious en suite bathrooms (with bath and shower). All modern conveniences...

One of the best ever meals i've eaten out. As a vegetarian who does not eat dairy most chefs find providing me with a good meal next to impossible but this hotel delivered a superb main course of chestnut and puy lentil stuffed cabbage with french beans and forestiere mushrooms that were so delicious and lots of it. Followed by...
