We spent the first night of our trip through Scotland here. It's very clean, the staff helpful and friendly and our room nice. It's an easy walk from the train station even with luggage.

Seriously!! Too much chatter not enough concentration, all was not lost though we visited Berwick-upon-Tweed and stayed there the night. The next day we were of to Kelso followed by Jedburgh and the fantastic ruin ...
... and South Bridge. The castle itself is incredible - constructed on a volcanic core shaped more like a haphazard fortress than a classic castle. A stroll down Royal Mile saw us observe three weddings, and statues of the icons of Scottish philosophy, Hume and Adam Smith. We also saw what is probably the best human statue we have ever seen...with him sitting in midair. We were also forced to encounter the new Scottish ...
