Hotel Reviews Scotland


Thank you so much for your contribution to our special day.  The full Hotel team was amazing.  Thank you all.

We had a lovely time here and would love to come back sometime

Just a note to thank you, your team, the chef and all those who made our 2 day meeting vey successful.  The feedback I've received from those who attended has been very positive!

An excellent fishing Hotel.  Stayed here whilst fishing Dryburgh North and the facilities (particularly the drying room) are very good.

The purpose of this brief note is to express my appreciation to you and your staff upon the excellent visit we had to your hotel several weeks ago when we travelled as part of the Lady Anne's needlework tour to Scotland.  Quite honestly everything was superlative; our rooms were kept immaculate, the staff were experienced and friendly (even our laundry was returned in 3 hours!) and the food was wonderful.  We really felt like kings.  Best wishes to you all.

We have stayed at Dryburgh Abbey Hotel on a number of occasions and have always been completely satisfied.  On this visit we would like to take the opportunity to thank all the staff, who have been courteous and helpful - particularly Aileen on reception.  The food has also been excellent as has the housekeeping.  Thank you to everyone involved.

I thank all concerned for a superb New Years Eve event.  It was a night to remember and the food and the Hotel were superb.

Just a quick note to say a big thank you to all the staff for a wonderful stay!  It was my first time to the Hotel and it was an absolute pleasure to stay & will be returning next year.  Everyone was so friendly and helpful throughout the 3 days.  A big thank you to Wilfred and the Chef for some fantastic food.

We appreciated the excellent disabled facilities - something much lacking in other hotels in the area.

A beautiful location in private grounds on the banks of the river tweed.  We had a lovely room overlooking the river.  We love the bars and lounges.

Beautiful location.  Very pleasant and helpful staff.

I liked the seting, the building itself, the decor and spaciousness.  The staff were attentive but not pushy.  The food was excellent.

The location if you like the quiet life is lovely.  It is an impressive building and close to the River Tweed.

Thank you - all staff were kind & helpful.  Special thanks to Phyll on Reception and Sarah in the Restaurant.  Lovely stay - thanks again.

A delightful experience to be fondly remembered for sometime to come.  Thank you.

One of the best welcomes we have had on arrival at a Hotel.  We had an excellent stay and would definitely return.

Fantastic service from everyone at the Hotel.  The food was fantastic and everyone was very polite and helpful.  It is great to see that excellent customer service still exists.  Keep it up and hopefully we will be back in the near future.

Just a small note to say a big thank you to all staff at the Dryburgh Abbey Hotel.  We had a marvellous day, very well looked after and the food was first class.

I recently booked my parents a night at the Hotel to celebrate their Ruby Wedding Anniversary.  The Hotel very kindly upgraded them to the Lady of Mertoun Suite which made it extra special.  They both very much enjoyed their stay, especially the excellent dinner and breakfast.  Thank you all so much for making it such an enjoyable experience.

Thank you vey much for your help regarding my overnight stay on 25 March, we had a fab time.

I wanted to thank you for making our event such a success.  Your planning and attention to detail meant that the event went exactly as planned.  We have had many responses from the attendees saying how much they enjoyed the event, we were very satisfied with everything.  The dining and the service were excellent - we had a memorable time in the Borders.

I stayed at the Hotel last week and I just wanted to drop a quick line to say thank you for a great time.  The hotel has a good location and the rooms are pleasant but what really made the stay enjoyable was the staff.  Everyone I dealt with combined both friendliness and efficiency and really made the stay a delight.  The food was also excellent - I regularly eat in Michelin starred restaurants but this was one of the best fine dining meals I have had for a long time.  The bar food was also very good.  Please pass on my thanks to all concerned and I look forward to visiting you again in the future.

Just a little note to say thank you so much for our wonderful stay at Dryburgh.  Everyone was so kind, the staff couldn't have made us more welcome and of course we loved taking the Hotel dog for a walk.  He is adorable!  We felt so at home, what a wonderful atmosphere everywhere, and the views super.  It was lovely walking down by the Tweed before breakfast.  The food was out of this world and my guests who joined us for dinner thought likewise.  Looking forward to our next visit.

Once again we have had a gloriously relaxing 2 night break at Dyburgh Abbey Hotel.  As always the service by all members of staff could not be faulted and the quality of food tasted at both breakfast and dinner was exceptional.  We will definitely be back again for a short break later in the year.  Once again many thanks for a most enjoyable stay.

We would like to thank you and all your staff for making our wedding day very special. We had a wonderful day as did all our guests who are still talking of the day and your hotel almost a month on. You and your staff provided us with many precious memories of the day which we will take fondly back to Australia.

Wonderful stay. Friendly staff and wonderful food, will definitely be back. Thank you from all of us.

This place is turning into my favourite hotel ever. So peaceful & relaxing. Seen a pair of otters last night and that made my stay even better. Best Regards to you all.

Thank you so much for making our wedding day the most amazing day of our lives! It couldn't have been more perfect. No doubt we'll see you on our anniversary. Love & Thanks.
