Its not often i'm left speechless. The menu and atmosphere looked great, just a real shame the chef and poor service killed a highly anticipated experience. My starter of pigeon was tasteless and stone cold. The shared nachos was just a blob of cheese and supermarket basic crisps. Mains - The battered fish was returned as it was a slop,...

Just back from our stay in the Buccleuch Arms in St Boswells. Loved so much about it, but the highlight for us was the food. Ate in the Blue Coo Bistro rather than the bar although the menu was interesting in both. Fine dining indeed - Rabbit, partridge, steak, salmon - all cooked with attention to detail. If it quantity...

My wife and I visited this hotel on 15th Jan 2017 and we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is rated 4 star and definitely lives up to this rating.

We had a wonderful 2 night stay with our dog. Nothing was too much trouble. The room (20) was spacious with a very comfortable large bed. We ate in the bar so that our dog could stay with us. The food and service were excellent though not cheap. We would happily recommend this hotel to anyone.

I visited here with a group for a Christmas party night, about 80 people attended. The food was good which can be difficult when producing en masse. They had a really cool little pop-up Apres ski style bar hidden away which was a nice surprise, especially in the Borders! The decor of the latter and the entrance/drinks area was really...
