Outside hotel looks lovely, carpets very tired, bed had a dip in it. Place needs a good refreshing uplift. In dining room we had a broken table with plastic cover a d was told just don't touch it, head waiter needs to smarten up and put a smile on his face there are 2 young girls serving breakfast, very polite and helpful also there was a member of staff Jules(hope I have spelt this correctly), she was an absolute angel, was so attentive. Don't agree with price, we were there on a weekday yet the day we left there was a difference of roughly £40 per night. Don't think that is fair.

Dear 513margaretl. Thank you for your feedback. I'll have a word with the head waiter and ask him to put a smile on his face. Sometimes he gets a bit grumpy when his tables are manhandled by guests. Best wishes.

Recent 4 day visit with friends. Wonderful setting in parkland close to the Tweed, with views from upper windows. A warm welcome and staff were uniformly excellent. Some might consider it should be upgraded, but you risk destroying character and ambience, which the hotel has in abundance. There are frustrations; my bed was horribly uncomfortable the first night so sleep was poor. The hotel was full, so no option to change rooms, but housekeeping came to the rescue with an extra mattress and liners; result was I slept well. Hot water occasionally unpredictable in a friends room, but otherwise many positives outweighed these issues. Bar and lounges are well appointed. Breakfast every day wonderful. Food in main dining room was excellent, though another evening the bar meal was less successful, but still enjoyable. Overall, we were well looked after, had,the bonus of a very friendly and well behaved Scottish wedding reception, which the hotel managed beautifully without inconvenience to,other guests. All of our party gave it a seal,of approval, thank you.

Room Tip: Parking adequate though the added wedding reception stretched it to capacity! Ground floor rooms...

Exceptional team working at the hotel, couldn’t fault them. Lovely food in the restaurant and a gorgeous riverside setting. Bedrooms very traditional and one of our two rooms was quite dated, although comfortable. Constant hot water when needed in the bathroom and good tea / coffee facilities. Excellent breakfast. A lovely hotel, would return.

Having popped in for Sunday lunch I wasn't expecting haute cuisine, just decent pub grub. My wife had the Mediterranean Salad starter and my daughter and I had the potato and leek soup. For main course they had the beef burger and chips and I chose the steak and ale pie, a firm pub favourite of mine. The starters were fine, no complaints there. My wife and daughter also enjoyed their burgers, the only criticism was that the chips were a little undercooked on the inside very dark on the outside and not in the least bit crispy. But the steak and ale pie..oh dear! This was without doubt the driest S & A pie I've ever had the misfortune to order and quite impossible to enjoy so most of it was left on the plate. The pastry was thick and crusty and the filling was bone dry with absolutely no gravy and the beef was dry, tough and chewy. I don't usually complain, but I couldn't possibly let that go so I mentioned it to the waiting staff. When I paid the bill...initially about £72...the head member of staff (manager?) deducted just 10% of the price of the pie or £1.50. The Dryburgh has been permanently crossed off my choice of eateries
