Best Western Plus Philipburn House Hotel.

One of Selkirk's finest hotels.

The Best Western Plus Philipburn 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.

Luxury accommodation in a peaceful relaxing setting.

Dear The-travel-writer, Thank you for the lovely review! We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed a recent stay at the hotel and found your room warm, welcoming and comfortable. Selkirk is a great base for exploring all areas of the Scottish Borders and is fantastic at the local Common Riding in June where the town comes alive - it really is something! We are delighted that you found all of the staff accommodating, friendly and helpful. It was a delight to meet you and we hope to welcome you back to the hotel in the near future.
