Winners Again!

We finish our 3rd season as we started, with recognition ! We have been voted the East Lothian & Borders region  'Most Hospitable Hotel 2017'  in the annual Thistle Awards. We go forward to the Final in March. This is a real boost for the team and caps off a year of fine progress on all fronts. This season we have achieved: The Borders only 5 star restaurant with rooms, [ Visit Scotland & the AA ] , 2 AA rosettes for cuisine ,CIS awards 'Hotel of the Year'  and now Regional Thistle. As we take a festive break we will review all the good work to date and consider how we can raise the bar even higher in 2018.
