Chosen as somewhere to stay for two nights, whilst in the town to watch rugby. Wonderful barely gets close to describing Braidwood, considering that it sits close to the village centre there was not much to disturb even the lightest of sleeper. The room was comfortable with a lovely comfortable bed, small but functional shower room. Room could do with... More

We stayed here for one night after completing St. Cuthbert's Way in the "opposite" direction. After a 26K hike on a very hot day we were very happy to be welcomed to our clean and comfortable room. Breakfast was as expected - cereal and juice with 'the full Scottish" and variations thereof. All in all, a very pleasant stay.

We stayed two nights at Braidwood B&B in Melrose recently. The rooms were very clean and the Scottish breakfast, cooked by Mike and served by Helen, absolutely delicious. The house is ideally situated, in the heart of the old town of Melrose, just a-minute walk from the legendary Abbey, and a five-minute drive from Walter Scott's Abbotsford house. Both Mike... More

Lovely spot with in walking distance of Melrose Abby. I had a room on the top floor with a nice view of the landscape. Lovely breakfast, helpful people. I would definitely recommend Braidwood with two caveats. One, my ensuite bath did not have a shower, only a tub, and , although the hot water and the soak was nice, I... More

Excellent location, clean room and extremely comfortable bed. Breakfast was delicious! One small concern: the wifi service was spotty - hard to establish a good connection at times. This should not be a problem for most guests.

We booked two rooms - one for ourselves and one for my elderly parents. We were in the attic room which others have mentioned is mostly restricted height and is up a steep flight of stairs - not at all suitable for the elderly infirm or very drunk! We soon developed a radar though and the room was very charming... More

My wife and I completed the St Cuthberts Way walk and stayed here before our return home the next day. This was probably the best value B&B. Breakfast was good and the location in the town was ideal.We love Monrose.

I arrived in Melrose just too late to check out accommodation through the Tourist Information office, which had just closed for the day. Thankfully, I caught the TI assistant as she was leaving and asked if she could point me in the direction of a couple of places, Braidwood was the 1st one she mentioned and also the nearest so...
