        • Family with children
          8.2

          Really enjoyed our stay,sorted all our requests out very well,( z bed and 3 vegetarians in our party). Breakfast was really good and all staff helpful and friendly. Only negative was that the bar area felt like a sauna (top to toe in pine,not too hot) which wasn't very welcoming.

        • Single
          7.4

          heating went off at 11pm, felt very cold overnight, option to turn heating up or down preferable

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Comfortable, spacious room/bathroom. Good food and service. Quiet both in hotel and area (often heard noises from kitchens etc at other hotels which ruins atmosphere). Pleasant lounge and grounds (even if weather not good enough to enjoy latter!). TV that really worked. Wifi access handy.Peace may reflect few residents?!

          Generally very happy with whole package. Menu good but little variation overall. Possibly less than usual as very quiet?

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and we had a very nice dinner. There was plenty of space in the car park. The hotel is situated on the outskirts of the small, ancient town of Selkirk, which has a very interesting history, and is set in the midst of beautiful, rolling hills. We visited during the Common Riding, which is a local festival, only one of many in the area.

          The streets of Selkirk are quite steep so it would be better for those who have any difficulty walking to use their car.

        • Group of friends

          The staff were excellent - very engaging and friendly.I was unfortunately taken ill during my stay and they were superb.

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          Hotel was good except was a bit dated, 2 steep flights of stairs to the room was too much, Bathroom needed updating.

          Stairs and breakfast was poor

        • Couple

          Large room

          Pubic hair on bathroom floor on arrival, poor food, breakfast not hot.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          The Hotel was clean ,warm, comfortable and very peaceful.The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was excellent.

          We had dinner one night which wasn't quite up to standard.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Lovely room and decor in general

          Drinks were very expensive (even allowing for usual high hotel bar prices).

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          The service was excellent from the minute we walked through the door. The staff were very attentive without being in your face. We felt that the staff were interested in you and were happy to find out what you were doing and could help with recommendations for places to visit and things to do.

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          Comfortable relaxed atmosphere.

          Dinner quite expensive and unexceptional quality.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Warm welcome from efficient, friendly and polite staff and owners. Very small problem with bathroom shelf pointed out and it was dealt with almost before I'd finished telling them about it. Food was to die for

        • Family with children
          9.2

          The high standard of rooms and hospitality has been maintained since the time when I used to stay there several occasions every year until about 2002

          a little flakey on getting food and wine orders correct

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          Friendly staff, Comfortable and great breakfast

          Stairs where difficult wth heavy luagage but stall helped.

        • Couple
          9.6

          The high standard of service and the overall feeling of warmth and welcome. The food was of a very high standard.
