Visited Philipburn with friends and had a lovely evening. We couldn’t fault our stay: staff, room, food all excellent. We had booked a triple room and I suspect we were upgraded to our own chalet suite. A special thank you to Katie who arranged for us to watch the Lions on TV. Highly recommend.

We stayed here overnight and so glad we did. The hotel is lovely, the grounds and garden are very well kept, the staff are friendly and very attentive and the room we got (No4) was amazing ...split level with two balconies just amazing plus Jacuzzi bath. The whole hotel is spotless, so clean and such tranquil surroundings can't wait to stay again.

Our first trip away in 2021. Chose this as dog friendly. Glad we did. The accommodation for visitors with a dog is a lovely wee chalet in Gardens beside the hotel, with patio doors straight onto grassed area with trees. Ideal for letting dog out in morning and late at night. The rooms are very well furnished and very comfortable. There is free parking right next to accommodation. The hotel is very relaxing with plenty of seating in the garden..ideal in recent hot weather. Bar area is cosy with the feel of an Austrian hotel. We ate in the hotel 2 nights as restaurants in Selkirk limited and not open early in week due to Covid Hours. Food was a very good standard. I wasn't overly hungry one evening due to hot weather and concerned there was no light/bar menu, but staff happy to allow me to choose a starter as my main. I heard another table able to do same. Very accommodating. Covid safety measures were in place and we felt safe and looked after. Marie, the owner, is extremely pleasant and makes you feel very welcome. We plan to return soon.

Used this hotel to meet up with family living in England, upon arrival, it was instantly noticeable how well kept the grounds were. The rooms were no different. Great meals served at a very reasonable price by very friendly and helpful staff. Perfect location for a quiet getaway.

A lovely hotel. Nice big double room. Bed comfortable. Two chairs to sit and relax. Food good. We also had lunch and dinner. The restaurant tables were well spaced out. We felt safe eating here. We enjoyed sitting outside to have drinks. Marie and Ian were very friendly. A most enjoyable weekend.
