BEST WESTERN PLUS Philipburn Country House Hotel

One of Selkirk's finest hotels.

The BEST WESTERN PLUS Philipburn Country House Hotel lies on the outskirts of Selkirk town, putting you in the enviable position of having peace, quiet and local amenities on your doorstep.

Sitting quietly in 4 acres of private gardens and woodland, this wonderful 18th Century hotel building is in a world of its own, and a class of its own where comfort and service are concerned. BEST WESTERN PLUS Philipburn Country House even has its own outdoor Koi fish pond.

If you want to catch fish rather than watch them, you're in luck. The hotel overlooks the Ettrick Water with plenty of fishing opportunities. If you prefer, leave the nets behind and just enjoy a riverside stroll by the Tweed.

Our Values

Because the BEST WESTERN PLUS Philipburn Country House Hotel is family run, it's extremely well run. Nothing's too much trouble and we'll go out of our way to put a smile on your face although the beautiful setting may just do that job for us.

Beautiful gardens with plum, apple and pear trees, which the chef makes good use of. The gardens also have a large patio and terrace - ideal for enjoying those long summer days.
