‘Make a break for the border!’ was an oft repeated line in cowboy films.
Taking a break in the Borders is more our style.
Take up today’s Big Deal and enjoy an overnight stay in the elegant Roxburghe Hotel.
Set in gorgeous parkland, the hotel is part of the Duke of Roxburghe’s estate near Kelso in the beautiful Scottish Borders.
With a championship golf course and a full range of outdoor pursuits, The Roxburghe Hotel and Golf Course is a tremendous setting for a getaway break.
A little over an hour from Edinburgh and two from Glasgow, it is also conveniently close for a spot of rest and relaxation.
Originally a Scottish Jacobean country house, The Roxburghe Hotel has a rich and colourful history.
A hotel since 1982, the building’s period charm has been matched with contemporary comforts to create a stunning country retreat.
Available seven days a week, with a £30 supplement for Saturday night stays, this Big Deal is for an overnight stay in a Deluxe room at The Roxburghe. The offer includes a full Scottish breakfast.
All of the rooms offer amenities such as cosy bathrobes, free WiFi, Ipod docking stations and luxurious Arran Aromatics toiletries.
The Deluxe rooms provide an extra level of space and comfort. As well as lovely views, the additional features include comfortable chairs, sumptuous decoration and little touches such as a selection of books from the Duke of Roxburghe’s own library.
Depending on availability, there may be the option to upgrade to a four poster room.
The Roxburghe Hotel is a member of The Collection, a group of small, luxury hotels under the management of ICMI.
2 AA Rosettes
The offer includes a full Scottish breakfast. Guests are also welcome to take other meals in the hotel’s two AA Rosette restaurant.
The chef and his team work closely with the best of Borders food producers and use produce from the Roxburghe Estate itself. Wherever possible, all the food is local, seasonal and of the highest quality.
Typical dishes might be the seared, hand-dived scallops from Berwick or the rack of Borders lamb accompanied by braised shoulder, piperade and lamb jus.
See and do in The Borders
As we mentioned, the hotel sits on the Roxburghe Estate and, as well as the championship golf course, the estate offers a wide range of activities from fishing to clay pigeon shooting and croquet.
There are plenty of great walks, both on the estate and nearby. Alternatively, you could visit nearby Floors Castle, stately home to the Duke of Roxburghe.
There is also the option to book a beauty treatment in the hotel’s Beauty Suite.
