Arrived at 9pm after driving up from Manchester in thick snow. Very welcoming staff and even made us some sandwiches and chips for our arrival after the dining room had shut. Rooms are brilliant for the money- nice touches like the tartan carpet and a lovely breakfast. Great to see the traditional decor in the bar and breakfast areas and...

All the element of an old fasioned welcome were set during my phone conversation with Alex who was as charming at breakfast as when I booked our comfortable, spacious room. We all enjoyed our stay which was made more pleasant by the dog being allowed in the bar as well as our room.

Very warm welcome and shown to my room just in the small annex. Good sized room although shower room was small. Well equipped for one night with TV, kettle etc. Comfortable bed but short fitting bottom sheet. A well cooked meal served in the bar and friendly service. Cooked breakfast was good and freshly prepared, buffet choice was limited.

We have now stayed in this hotel four times and have never been disappointed. It is family run and welcoming and we have found it an ideal place to stay when travelling from the south of England to the north of Scotland. It would also be a good base from which to explore the Borders. The staff are friendly, the...

We arrived on a very wet night and were given a warm welcome. Our room was a lovely size and the bathroom very good. We had an enjoyable meal in the restaurant. Would definitely recommend this very friendly hotel.

Nothing at all is too much trouble, they always have a cheery smile and a few words for everyone. Food is excellent - absolutely first class - whether it is breakfast, lunch or...

We had dinner at The Somerton in July 2016. We were very well looked after and made to feel very comfortable and welcome. The service was very good with friendly well informed staff. I had a sirloin steak which was large, very tasty and cooked perfectly. All this with the best pint of Guinness I've had in a long time....
