Our Hotel

The Cross Keys provides a warm and friendly welcome to its guests and excellent service from attentive, friendly staff. The hotel is an ideal centre for business or pleasure situated in a peaceful corner of Scotland, yet still within easy reach of Edinburgh and Newcastle.

The hotel is in the heart of Kelso’s picturesque French-styled cobbled square. The present hotel was built in 1769, but in other forms, a Cross Keys Hotel has occupied the site since the earliest days of Scottish Coaching Inns. Today, the hotel provides a comfortable and convenient base to explore all that Kelso and the Scottish Borders has to offer. So, whether it's a relaxing break or an action-packed holiday that you are looking for, the Cross Keys can be enjoyed by all.

As you might expect in a building with such historic roots, and unlike more impersonal larger chain hotels, our hotel bedrooms are different shapes and sizes which adds to their individual character.

Our Junior Suites are large spacious rooms, many of which are capable of sleeping a family of up to 2 adults and 2 children.
