Philipburn Hotel.

One of Selkirk's finest hotels.

The Philipburn 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. Philipburn 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.

The food was hot that was the only positive

13/07/2019 zo_b968, Galashiels, United Kingdom

Came here for a family meal. We were a large family group who had pre-ordered our meals in advance. Firstly our table was split into two separate tables with the kitchen access between the two tables ... more

BWPhilipburn, Manager at Philipburn Hotel, responded to this review
Dear zo_b968 We are sorry to hear your comments regarding your family meal on 25th May this year. We believed that 2 tables of 10 opposite one another would be easier for you to converse with family members as with 1 long table of 20 we have had comments previously that guests at one end of the table can neither see nor hear guests at the other end. This was discussed with the host at the time the booking was made, however we are sorry to hear that this was not acceptable. All your comments have been noted and we take all feedback on board and use these to provide a better experience for our guests in the future. Once again we are sorry to hear of the disappointment you experienced on this occasion.

Immaculate gardens and crazy fish!

This hotel is immaculate both inside and out. Our room was large and comfortably furnished, and spotlessly clean. All staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were superb. The parking spaces are... more

Dear Ann H, Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you have enjoyed a recent stay with us and found the rooms to a high standard and the staff friendly and helpful. We do hope to welcome you back to the Borders in the near future.

BWPhilipburn, General Manager at Philipburn Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Tracykelly, On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. Your reservation was made via booking.com on 17th June. At the time the reservation was made the rate, board basis and occupancy of the room would have been clearly displayed from the information entered by the booker. The hotel then receives a copy of your reservation from booking.com. On arrival at the hotel you informed us that your partner would be staying at which point it was explained that the single occupancy discount for a superior double room would no longer apply. You expressed your concern that this change in occupancy would show on your company invoice, however we assured you that this could be shown on a separate account. Once again I apologize for not exceeding your expectations.
