All staff and facilities were absolutely fantastic. The surrounding area was beautiful and the abbey next door was magnificent. Great place to relax and enjoy some wonderful food. I recommend the 8 course tasting menu for £35 per person. Great value! All in all a lovely place to stay.
No faults whatsoever.
The beauty of the area next to Dryburgh Abbey and to the Tweed river.
Upon arrival, the hotel is set in a stunning location, with the Abbey and the Tweed on the doorstep. A lovely, peaceful location. The hotel staff were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. On arrival the receptionist greeted with a friendly smile and explained the facilities within the hotel. The room was comfortable but tired and in need of some upgrading - television, bathroom and decoration etc. The pool though small was ideal when it was just the two of us, which happened two out of our three nights. Sadly the 3rd night another couple and a child were in the pool area which made it difficult to enjoy the swim. The bar and waiting on staff were also very attentive with a friendly nature, who couldn't do enough for you. The meal in the Restaurant was nice, though we felt a bit of background music would have been appropriate.
As mentioned earlier the hotel was very impressive upon arrival, however, upon entry the Abbey lounge and main stairway was in need of some tlc. The decoration and furnishings were tired and some of the chairs had stains or holes. A bit of attention would be recommended on cleaning this to brighten up the area. The bedroom was suitable for our stay though found it extrememly warm and kept the windows open our entire stay. The tv and bathroom would benefit from some upgrading. The cloakroom on the first floor was in desparate need of redecoration and not welcoming. The food in the bar was adequate (though the Tweed restaurant was nicer, but more expensive) Drinks and wine were extremely expensive and not much choice in the lower price bracket for wine, concentration spent on the more expensive. We would recommend to friends if they got a good deal but not if paying full price!!
The staff were wonderful - couldn't have been more helpful and often anticipated your request before it was made! The location was great, so beautiful and peaceful. The food was also very nice.
The rooms really need updating - the beds and pillows were uncomfortable and bathrooms also in need of redecorating (new grouting, shower curtains, etc.)
This was our second visit to the Dryburgh Abbey hotel the food,staff and setting is excellent.We took two dogs and they were given just as much of a welcome as we were.The food in both the bar and restaurant were very good a wonderful choice of locally sourced produce.I would certainly recommend this hotel to friends.
The only niggle was our room was quite small and the en-suite needed an up grade but this wouldn't stop me staying there again.
I have stayed here several times over the years and have to say this trip was a disappointment in many ways. It is looking "tired" and needs money spent on decor and refurbishment. I waited 20 minutes for my order to be taken in the bistro and another 15 minutes before it was served. At breakfast although I said good morning to the waitress, I was not acknowledged. As a diabetic it is important that milk jugs are labelled as being skimmed, or not. In hotels I stay at there are usually a bowl of fruit to choose from which given my dietary restrictions is important. I had bacon, (tough and, inedible)obviously not freshly cooked, Mushrooms,(minute portion) and a poached egg, the only thing on the plate that was hot. Overall my stay was a disappointment and standards have obviously slipped in what used to be a very good hotel.
Very welcoming and friendly staff, wanting to please. They adapted well to an in-house problem. The food was of a high quality and served with care.
Only one type of duvet - too warm and no alternative.
Very friendly staff.Beautiful surroundings with many countryside walks.Good location if planning to tour Scottish Borders.
I thought the hotel was lovely. Old fashioned but very comfortable. The surroundings were beautiful and the grounds are very well kept. We felt the staff were friendly and helpful.
We were in room 108. The toilet was very difficult to flush and the water took a while to leave the sink. The breakfast was poor. The bacon was not cooked well, I think it had been cooked fro a while and was tough. The fried egg was well cooked. The toast was very hard. When we go to a hotel we always look forward to breakfast being cooked for us but both of us were very disappointed although the waitress was lovely. For you quality of breakfast and plumbing I think it was very over priced.
The wonderful location in a loop of the River Tweed and the comfortable room. The friendliness of the staff and the attention to guest comfort.
Kindness of staff was a treat. Ability to help with cleaning up when our kid threw up in the car was extremeley kind. Historic building, nature envirnoment. Good food. English Breakfast very tasty, rest of buffet rather thoughtless.
Pool rather simplistic without any touch of style tossed away in basement. Refurbishment in room and hotel would certainly help upgrade this otherwise beautiful location.
the location was very good, the pool was good, the lounges and restaurants are nicely appointed, our room and bathroom were spacious
some of the staff would benefit from more training, some parts of the hotel require investment
Dryburgh Abbey is in lovely location in Scottish borders
Service was poor, rooms need updating.
Good facilities with a friendly and helpful staff good food with efficient service.
We had a view of the Abbey from our room. I loved the breakfasts and the proximity to the Tweed. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
I liked everything except I didn't have time to fully enjoy all the facilities.
