To be fair, we were only booked into this hotel for one night. It is located on a beautiful site, close to the Ettrick Water, a short distance from the centre of the pleasant town of Selkirk. Our room and shower room were spotlessly clean, and the room itself was inviting and well heated. I would not say that we...

On the edge of town near the Ettrick river (and handy for the rugby!) this is a very pleasant hotel. Friendly staff, nice single room (4), good food and drink and good wifi (32Mb/s). Enough parking for half a dozen cars and the town centre is half a mile away, 10-15mins walk. Recommended.

However, this was dealt with immediately by the staff and I was transferred to another room. Breakfast was excellent. Staff were friendly, attentive and helpful throughout my...

We thoroughly enjoyed our 9 night stay at The Glen Hotel in Selkirk, Scotland. I was born and brought up in a town just 11 miles away and the Borders are as beautiful as ever. The Glen Hotel is a beautiful old property, full of character, but with modern amenities and looks over the beautiful countryside. The owners couldn't do...

Family run hotel with local staff. This is a good hotel for business people, clean tidy rooms, good wifi and mobile signal. Parking is a bit limited. The food is good and there is a small bar; staff are helpful and friendly.

Where do I start to review our 2 nights at The Glen? The proprietors, Antoinette & Steve Howland, are really nice people and so helpful. The hotel itself is a lovely old building (would make a superb family home) and well maintained. The food, cooked by Steve, can only be described as .excellent. Breakfasts are really good with excellent quality...
