Refurbishment Programme • Cross Keys Hotel, Kelso


Cross Keys Hotel, Kelso

The Cross Keys Hotel has embarked on an exciting 3 year programme of refurbishment. The programme will see significant investment being made into the repair of the hotel's exterior and the refurbishment of its interior including reception, the lounge, bar, dining areas and the update of bedrooms.

In 2014, a new guest lift was installed at the hotel. Later in the year, the classical roof of the hotel, which is an iconic feature of the Square in Kelso, was repaired and redecorated.

The Spring of 2015 was the launch of an ambitious and far-reaching refurbishment. In association with a group of experienced local trades-people we have completed the first phase of the public areas on the ground floor. The restaurant, bar and TV lounge have been transformed with new carpeting throughout, redecoration of interiors and an extensive upgrading of fabrics and furnishings.

Summer last year (2016) marked the start of phase two of the public areas refurbishment programme. The Oak Room was redecorated and re-carpeted as well as the installation of a dance-floor to facilitate the Oak Room being available to hire for smaller private functions.

Autumn 2016 - Spring 2017 saw the start of the hotel’s bedroom-stock refurbishment with 7 of the 26 rooms refurbished. A bespoke Bridal suite was developed, and major rufurbishment of the hotels Ballroom.

Later this year will see the start of the second phase of refurbishment of the hotel's bedroom stock with a further 8 bedrooms refurbished.

The continued investment in the Cross Keys will ensure that the hotel remains at the fore-front of the hospitality offering in the Borders.
