There is a range of photo opportunities available to capture your special day at the Cross Keys Hotel, from the unique cobbled square with its magnificent Town Hall to the ancient Kelso Abbey. The hotel also has access to a private riverside garden only a horse and carriage ride away.


The Ballroom is wonderfully spacious, it has a large dance floor with space around it for seating, and a raised lounge area with bar and more informal seating from which your guests can view the dance floor and enjoy the celebrations. In the evening, lighting transforms the room and creates a magical atmosphere.
