We were stunned and delighted by the fantastic corner suite double bedroom we were shown to on arrival on a frosty Friday night. The room was really large with curved bay window (in the turret!), lovely traditional feature fireplace and furnishings and really comfortable bed. We were surprised to have an adjoining twin room (could have brought the kids) and the ensuite with delightful stained glass window featuring local quirky landmarks (the bagpipe playing pig at Melrose Abbey).
In the morning it was exciting to throw back the curtains on a beautiful view of the River Tweed, local hills and the roofs of Abbotsford House (sir Walter Scott's home) peeking through the trees - and the added bonus was the blanket of snow turning it into a charming winter scene.
Down the baronial staircase to the grand hall with log fire burning bright, and lovely cooked breakfast in the elegant dining room. From there you have lovely view of the garden and adjoining conservatory - charming !
We had a wonderful weekend and have to say the staff were all very friendly and welcoming, the food lovely and most comfortable bed and room we can remember . Best weekend for years celebrating my husbands birthday and we thought excellent value.
We will be back ! Soon, hopefully.More
