We enjoyed our stay with you. The room was spacious and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious (especially the porridge) and we would have no hesitation in recommending Inglestone House to our friends and family. Your local knowledge was invaluable. Also, we enjoyed your company. Best wishes for the future.

“We’ve all absolutely loved our stay, Lisa and Colin. Your home is beautiful, spotless and we were very, very comfortable. Your breakfasts were amazing and for someone who never eats a cooked breakfast I’m a convert. You’re in a great location, and we enjoyed everything the area had to offer and we will certainly return. It has been a welcome change for us all in comparison to our usual short breaks to the Lake District. Great to meet up again and I don’t think it will be the last time we do so. Thank you for your hospitality and helpfulness”.
Monica and Jim, August 2021
“Many thanks indeed for a comfortable stay in Kelso and the sense of ease achieved from the sensible and reassuring precautions in place at your guesthouse to reduce risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission. Ruth and I very much appreciated your hints and tips around local attractions and walks, which kept us fully occupied during our stay. We appreciated that you could accommodate us the extra night. Thank you and kind regards”.

Alan & Adelaide, August 2021
“Thank you for both your hospitality. Booked up at the last minute as you know due to our other B&B being cancelled. Really appreciated you making myself and my wife comfortable not only for your B&B but making sure we had a good overall weekend advising on booking up venues with COVID restrictions and specifically the “White Swan” next door where you recommended furthermore provided a 10% discount voucher on food. Genuinely cared about our overall stay in Kelso. The room was immaculate and very comfortable (Room 5). I know everyone mentions what’s the water pressure like, is the bed comfy, all were perfect 🙂 The breakfast was faultless. Highly recommend to anyone and will certainly be booking up again and not to long in the future either. All the best to you both”.
