Nice hotel full of character overlooking river Tweed and in centre of Kelso.
Rooms very nice with modern bathrooms. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Great choice at breakfast and fine dining in the restaurant in the evening.

We had a fabulous stay in Kelso in this lovely hotel on the river. We were there to visit Kelso races and it was fairly near by but we would recommend you book a taxi in advance unless you don't mind the 30 minute walk uphill to the race course.
We ate in the hotel both nights and the food was excellent, well presented, full of flavour and the service was fantastic and very friendly too. Nothing was too much bother.
We had one of the attic rooms which could probably do with some good refurbishing, to be fair, but it was comfortable and clean and the complimentary toiletries were welcome and used. There were lots of lounges in hidden places and so you could be sociable if you wish, or hide away in a corner and do a full Greta Garbo too.
The location is perfect as you are right on the river bank and it feels fully country house, but go out of the front door and you are straight onto one of the main streets in Kelso.
The staff make this hotel extra special. They were helpful, cheerful and chatty too, making you feel instantly at home. They are the best asset this hotel has.
Lots of this sort of hotel need a good update, but not modernisation, just some reupholstering of the furniture would make a huge difference to the look, especially for weddings. We didn't see the larger bedrooms on the floor below ours, but spoke to some people who were in them and they were very happy with their accommodation.
We would definitely be back sometime, and would be happy to book into the Ednam House Hotel again without doubt.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were excellent and so were the evening meals that we had. We liked the public rooms and the way the original character of the building has been preserved. Our only criticism would be that our room needed some work, but we did choose the cheapest room on offer.

Our attic room was very shabby. Very old tatty furniture and dirty wet towels still hanging in the shower which was also dirty. The bed was very uncomfortable and felt old. The whole place feels like it needs a refurbishment and a good clean as it could be lovely. It's a perfect setting right next to the river but really needs attention. Also - the menus need to cater more for vegetarians and vegans.

The Ednam seems to have two Tripadvisor sites! Maybe to limit the number of bad reviews on each?
We had an appalling experience yesterday when they ruined my daughters wedding with an unbelievably mean and overpriced buffet! £336 for one platter each of sandwiches,sausage rolls, scotch eggs and dried up kebabs ( they forgot the sauce! Not enough of anything for even one each. Surly, rude and defensive staff. Absolute rip off ! They should be ashamed!
