we found the staff were very welcoming & polite. The rooms were very clean. Especially for the age of the building. A lift for those that have a good amount of luggage. A basic but good buffet breakfast, plenty for those with a good appetite!!!...More

we booked here for a 3 night weekend break. The room was clean & had the basics that you need. A settee near the TV looked like a great asset but we discovered it was a bit old and lumpy. A buffet breakfast on Saturday...More

About
Description
The Cross Keys provides a warm and friendly welcome to its guests and excellent service from attentive, friendly staff. The hotel is an ideal centre for business or pleasure situated in a peaceful corner of More Scotland, yet still within easy reach of Edinburgh and Newcastle. The hotel is in the heart of Kelso’s picturesque French-styled cobbled square. The present hotel was built in 1769, but in other forms, a Cross Keys Hotel has occupied the site since the earliest days of Scottish Coaching Inns. Today, the hotel provides a comfortable and convenient base to explore all that Kelso and the Scottish Borders has to offer. So, whether it's a relaxing break or an action-packed holiday that you are looking for, the Cross Keys can be enjoyed by all. Less
