The Black Swan Hotel Kelso is situated in the very heart of Kelso, close to the old town square, The Black Swan Hotel Kelso is the undisputed jewel in our crown. Moments from Racecourse and the Kelso Showground, it is also within easy reach to explore Scottish Borders and its Border towns.
All of our ensuite bedrooms ensure a consistent high level of comfort and design. Your stay with us at the Black Swan is very important to us and one where we are sure you will want to come back time after time. We pride ourselves on our friendly service and relaxed atmosphere.

Meeting & Functions
From private board meetings to celebrations, The Black Swan Hotel Kelso creates the perfect setting for your event. Whether you are planning a wedding, a conference or business event (capacity up to 30), our Chase Lounge includes free Wifi.


We would like to inform you of some changes we have made due to the COVID-19 crisis at the moment. 

Currently all Bars and Restaurants are to remain closed in the UK, as advised by the government. This means that our public bar next door to our B&B will be closed and thus we will have to rearange how our customers check-in. 

Check-in, is from 2pm-9pm so to ensure there is someone at the property on your arrival we ask, where possible, that guests arrange a time to meet us and allow us to check you in. If guests are unable to do this then they will need to phone us on arrival at the property and the manager will come straight across. 

If you would like to cancel your booking or make any changes then do not hesitate to get in touch with us so you will be able to retain your deposit.

Our House Keeper is also making sure that all our rooms and public areas are cleaned in line with the NHS safety guidelines in order to stop the spread of any virus in our hotel.

Lastly, due to the shortage of food products in many stores, including our local shops, we will no longer be doing breakfast for guests that have not pre-booked. Any online bookings do not include breakfast in the pricing so if you would like to pre-book breakfast for your stay then you can email or phone us at least 24 hour before your day of arrival to allow us to order in products.

These are very uncertain times and if the government decides that hotels will too have to close then we will inform our guests as soon as possible. 

The best number to call during this time would be - 07903740020.

Thank you for your patience during this time.

Best Regards,
Paudie Lawlor
