Well situated for business people, sporting folk and tourists alike, this hotel is located along the short distance between Kelso's cobbled square and Rennie's Bridge over the River Tweed. Kelso's charming square is reminiscent of many of those found in Belgium and France while the handsome bridge was used as a model for Westminster Bridge in London. The flavour of the place was described by Sir Walter Scott in these terms: "The neighborhood of Kelso, the most beautiful, if not the most romantic in Scotland" was the first to awaken in him "delightful feelings for the beauties of natural objects". Adjacent to Kelso there is Floors Castle, which is the largest private residence open to public view in Scotland. It remains the home of the Duke of Roxburghe. And, not least, within a minute of the Hotel stands the ruins of Kelso Abbey. A little further the best of Georgian and Adam architecture can be views at Mellerstain House which is but six miles distant. Award winning restaurant.
