                  6.6

                  Use of the swimming pool, central for shopping and sightseeing, friendly and attentive staff.

                  Room was not 4 star quality, pretty basic and plain. surprising lack of beverages available in the room. Not much information in the hotel room about things to see and do and a ridiculous cost to access the internet (£4 per hour)

                • Older travelers
                  9.6

                  Staff were very attentive when I fainted - could not fault them

                  Lift was rather slow

                • Older travelers
                  7.0

                  Staff were friendly and very helpful with a concern to the stay as pleasant as possible.

                  There were two things not liked, one quite serious. As these would be classified as complaints I do not include them here.

                • Older travelers
                  8.8

                  Friendly & helpful staff to make the stay comfortable

                  Just one grouse. We had to vacate at 11:00 Hrs. requested the staff if we could have a little late checkout to which we are told would cost £20:00 per hour. No other hotel world wide does that, If they are not full, they oblige late checkout.

                • Group of friends
                  6.6

                  This is my 2nd visit to Roxburghe - the staff are so friendly & will do anything to please - breakfast is excellant. Spa / beauty services - the girls are lovely & actually know what their doing. Generally a good all round hotel at reasonable rates with a great location.

                  There is not enough lighting in the room especially near the main mirror - the hair dryers are rubbish as keep cutting out and there is very little room between the dressing table/mirror & bed...so not for ladies! If you have a room near any hall doors...it's noisy! Bit of a problem to have an evening drink in the main bar area when there is a wedding party/function on - hope this is of assistance.

                  Good location for the city centre.

                  Room filthy and staff were very rude and argumentative.

                  Reception staff, concierge and night porter were all very helpful - an asset to the Hotel.

                  Room 310 was rather noisy as opposite the service lift, which is a shame as its a nice executive room.

                  The hotel's location makes it perfect as a base for exploring both old and new towns. The staff were superb - polite,helpful and just the right level of understated service at dinner and breakfast. All in all a great place to stay and good value for money as well.

                  the guy on door was very helpful and tried to sort out our problem

                  we had a strong smell of sewrage in room and on second day they did provide air freshener but did not mask smell, suggest that there was a problem with saniflow unit.

                  We liked the price, the location, the room was lovely and most of the staff were very good. There is a small car park underneath the hotel and my windscreen was cleaned free of charge.

                  We asked to borrow dressing gowns to go to the spa and were told there would be a charge of £10 each. We asked for our complimentary upgrade and were told the hotel was busy - doubtful - and to ask the next day. Unlikely once we'd unpacked.

                  All staff other than maides were really helpful and friendly!

                  The lift was terribly slow! Everyone we shared a lift with commented on it often people thought it had broke, we were in room 484 and the maides storage room was right outside and all the maides sat on the floor having a chat every morning which woke us up and wasn't very plesant! And there is one pokey window in that room right in the corner which looks over a horrible office block! The bath is tiny and the water of both bath, shower and sink fails to keep a consitant temp often runs very slow and very hot burning you! The doors to the rooms where very thin so could hear everything outside the room

                  Staff very helpful and accommodating. Breakfast very lovely great choice of food. The rooms were very clean and comfortable.

                  We thought the car parking was very expensive
