Our review

The Dryburgh Abbey Hotel has the most amazing location adjacent to the historic Dryburgh Abbey, burial place of Sir Walter Scott, and literally only yards away from the banks of the majestic River Tweed. More broadly, it makes an ideal base for visiting the sights of the Scottish Borders. The area is replete with beautiful walks through spectacular scenery and a number of noteworthy historic sites are nearby, such as the former home of Sir Walter Scott at Abbotsford House.

What’s more, it’s prime country for shooting, fishing and golf  — all of which the hotel are very happy to arrange on your behalf. The hotel caters for sporting parties or individuals and can offer fly fishing tuition. There is a drying room, rod and gun storage facilities, and they welcome well-behaved dogs. 

This mid 19th Century Baronial Mansion is a most relaxing venue for a quiet break, business meeting or sporting break, yet only an hour from Edinburgh and Newcastle. The hotel is small enough to deliver a very personal style of service, but large enough to host small conferences or weddings for up to 120 guests.

The hotel’s 38 bedrooms offer a good mix of styles from river-view deluxe rooms and suites to standard rooms, some with ground floor access.  What’s more, there is also a swimming pool and sauna for guests to use, making it an ideal location for a family retreat.

The hotel has two restaurants: a relaxed ground-floor bistro, adjacent to the lounge and bar, and the more opulent Tweed Restaurant on the first floor, which has terrific views across the grounds to the river. The menus reflect the rich variety of ingredients that can be sourced locally and, in fact, many of the herbs and vegetables come from the hotel’s gardens.

The Wallace Lounge on the first floor has a library of books and of particular note is the treasured collection of Dryburgh Editions of the Waverley Novels by Sir Walter Scott, of which the hotel are justifiably proud.
