Great But Ensure Breakfast Included

Posted Sep 5, 2016
Pros: Hotel, location and meals could not be faulted. Nice lounge and bar. Nice presentation of meals with real attention to detail. Very attentive staff.
Cons: Warmer Bacon at breakfast
Location: On outskirts of Selkirk so great for exploring Borders, Bowhill, Abbortsford, Border Towns and Abbeys.
Really enjoyed our stay except for no breakfast included for which we blame Expedia. Lovely hotel, excellent meals and carful attentive staff. We would give it 99%. Website says complementary breakfast and later on page free breakfast but hotel said rate from Expedia was no breakfast. So paid for 2 nights stay we thought B&B and had to pay extra £52 for our breakfast- a higher cost than if included in pre-booked room rate Hotel experience was excellent but wary of Expedia now!

One of few hotels in the area.

Posted Aug 19, 2015
Pros: Location in central southern Scotland. Good choice of dinner. Pleasant, sunny, comfortable lounge.
Cons: Room decor in black & white did not appeal to me.
Location: Selkirk is not impressive. But within easy reach, Hawick, Jedburgh and Kelso were pleasant places to visit.
Used this as a base for visiting battlefields and castles. There seem to be few suitable hotels in the area. Car parking was a flight of steps from reception - which was not a problem on a sunny day in summer. Staff were all pleasant and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable if not modern and stylish (my idea of normal is Holiday Inn Express !) Enjoyed the lounge - reading and arguing. There seems to be no lift. Dinner was good as was breakfast. I think this is a young business: it would be interesting to see where it is in a couple of years time. Anyway I wish them well.

Nice hotel for the area.

Posted Oct 12, 2014
Pros: comfortable room with modern decor. Reasonable rates.
Cons: Breakfast and dinner menus quite traditional (the day's special was gammon steak and pineapple!!) and a little expensive for what was offered.
Location: Outside of town - about a mile uphill to centre, not much there. Abbotsford House and its Visitor Centre restaurant near Melrose well worth a visit.
We were given a "Garden" Room. Room was very comfortable but had to strain to see the garden and had to walk outside to get to dining room. We were lucky it stayed dry.

Country hotel

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Arrived with our dog which they had not been informed of but dealt with room change very quickly and efficiently. Very comfortable lodge which I would request in future. Dog welcomed into bar and whole stay was excellent.

Very poor staff

Posted Jul 29, 2013
Pros: Garden
Cons: Staff
Location: Near Selkirk - nice for walking but very little to do otherwise
Very badly trained staff. Poor quality food. Rooms were due to be in main hotel but we were put in an outbuilding rather like a garage.

Friendly but expensive

Posted Oct 2, 2011
The friendliness of staff could not be faulted, but they seem keen to get the most out of you. It is not the cheapest of hotels, but we were charged for full scottish cooked breakfast when we only had juice, fruit,coffee and toast. Additionally the restaurant menu was only priced with the cost of a typical 3 course dinner. There was no pricing of individual dishes or specials. We only discovered the cost when we checked out. We used the hotel as a base for local sightseeing, and from that point of view it was fine. Next time, I suspect we shall look elsewhere.

Paradise in the vicinity of Selkirk

Posted Aug 18, 2010
I arrived in Selkirk to participate in the annual bicycle marathon. I was pleasantly surprised when the hotel gave me actually a separate house with private lawn, own parking for my car and its own terrace overlooking the meadows where sheep grazed. Located on the suburb Selkirk, just across the river Tweed, so here peace and quiet. Staff at the hotel is qualified and benevolent. When the next year I come to Selkirk to participate in the marathon, make sure you stop at this hotel.
