Welcome to The Gordon Arms, an old coaching Inn nestling in the Yarrow Valley in the Scottish Borders. It was a favourite haunt of James Hogg, Sir Walter Scott and even Robert Burns was said to have stopped here.

Hi Isobel, Try to get there tomorrow, Sunday 23rd Oct, but you must book for lunch as they have another music afternoon and will be busy. See the website:- The FOURTH Sunday is the 23rd October and the Music Session is from 3pm onwards in our new bar lounge. There will be plenty room for everyone to join in or sit back and listen. Game Bird and Foxy Blond will be available on tap along with a good choice of food from our menu. We look forward to welcoming you all to The Gordon Arms on Sunday.

"Room 1 apparently is the best, but all rooms clean and comfortable."
"All rooms spot on."
"Room 1 is a good size room with Jacuzzi bath. Nicely decorated."
"Anywhere where there is a TV ...to watch England of course"
"Room 5 faces the front so you will get some traffic noise, but there are a couple of rooms at the back."
US$100 - US$102 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
