The Cross Keys Hotel is superbly situated in the heart of Kelso’s picturesque French-style cobbled square. The present hotel was built in 1769, but in other forms a Cross Keys hotel has occupied this site since the earliest days of Scottish coaching inns. An ideal base to enjoy all that the Scottish Borders has to offer, the Cross Keys provides a warm and friendly welcome to its guests and excellent service from attentive, friendly staff.
