This hotel reflects the warm, friendly country house atmosphere that is expected when staying with friends in a beautiful home rather than merely checking into a hotel. For those in favour of tranquillity and a bit of up-market sophistication, this is the place to stay.
Kelso, with the famous Silvery Tweed running through it, is one of the prettiest towns in the Central Borders region. There are many things to see and do in Kelso, such as the famous Kelso Races, Britain's friendliest course. In mid July there is Kelso Civic Week, steeped in history and tradition, while the end of July sees the famous Border Union Show attracting visitors and competitors from all over. Kelso Abbey is another famous landmark, and it stands right in the centre of the cobbled market town. The town of Kelso has the largest market square in Scotland, and further up the street is the embedded horseshoe, which, according to local legend, was cast by Bonnie Prince Charlie's horse when he passed through in 1745 on his way to Derby.
Decorated in a traditional country house hotel style, all rooms have garden views and luxury en suite bathrooms with both bath and shower and exclusive toiletries. Fabrics, antique furnishings and fine linens and fluffy towels and robes are used throughout.
The hotel lies on an excellent golf course and further leisure options on offer include archery and clay pigeon shooting. The hotel is the ideal starting point for those wishing to go hiking or cycling in the surrounding area.
Guests may select their breakfast from an ample buffet; lunch and the evening meal may be taken à la carte. Special dietary requirements and individual-specific dishes can be catered for.
From Kelso town centre, from the town square, take the road south to the old stone bridge over the River Tweed and continue along this road, veering to the left at the JET petrol station until the T junction by the new bypass. Turn right onto the A698. Follow the road for 4.8 km. Upon going through the village of Heiton, the signage for the hotel is on the right.
