Cross Keys Hotel

A much-altered 18th century coaching inn located on the north side of the magnificent square in the centre of Kelso (Scottish Borders), the Cross Keys Hotel dates from 1761 but was completely reconstructed and heightened in 1880, to create a four-storey seven-bay Italianate facade, featuring a balustraded parapet. The central bay rises to five storeys, with gilded crossed-keys on top. A pend once gave access to extensive stables, now demolished, and the pend remodelled as an entrance.
