One of the Borders’ most famous hotels has a new manager.
With 38 years’ experience in the industry, Margaret Livingstone-Evans has now taken on the role of general manager at Kelso’s Ednam House Hotel.
She was previously group refurbishment project manager for the Robert Parker Collection.
Mrs Livingstone-Evans will be responsible for both overseeing the continuing refurbishment of the hotel and its day-to-day management.
Since changing hands almost 18 months ago, Ednam House’s magnificent ballroom has been transformed and the bars, dining room and reception rooms have all been upgraded.
The next stage will be the transformation of the hotel’s 32 bedrooms. “My aim is for Ednam House to play a key role in the Kelso community and the Scottish Borders local tourism industry,” Mrs Livingstone-Evans told us.
As part of the Robert Parker Collection hotel group, Ednam House joins Doxford Hall, Eshott Hall, Guyzance Hall in Northumberland, Dalhousie Castle on the outskirts of Edinburgh and The Wordsworth Hotel in the Lake District.
