In 1893 the thatched roof on the main building was replaced and the
name was changed to the 'Border Inn' In 1898 the gable was built and
the name changed again to the 'Border Hotel'.
Over the years the building has been progressively altered and upgraded.

room and two small dining rooms - as well as all the modern facilities
