Elegant building right in the center of town. The walls display a very extensive, tasteful, and eclectic collection of original art. Our garret room was sunny, spacious, clean. We looked down on a busy thriving main street. Across the street were a bakery and a gourmet butcher shop both offering wonderful food to take away. Our host, Dave, is a... More

Stayed in this lovely B&B in Melrose for the second time. The rooms are large, bright, with lots of character and nicely furnished, art work is great fun, nice and clean, delicious breakfast, and chatty landlord. Thanks again.

The Old. Bank House is a beautiful, fascinating place, which feels like home - but a very special one. As others have mentioned, the walls are covered with a fascinating collection of art, which is carefully themed and set out. The china is Spode Blue Italian and the whole atmosphere reflects the care and thought that has gone into making... More

Our second stay in Melrose but first at the Old Bank House. We arrived in a heatwave and stayed 3 nights for a walking and cycling break en route to the Commonwealth Games, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Accommodation and breakfast were excellent, it was also good to be able to park up and walk to evening meals. Dave made... More

I stayed with Dave first in 2013 and again in 2014 - and I am sure that I will return in the not too distant future. Great B&B to start or end your trip of Scotland. Big and airy rooms, a lot of colourful art on the walls, delicious breakfast, special atmosphere due to the historic background as a bank... More

The Old Bank House was a lovely place to stay and David made us very welcome, with stories and history about Scotland. The decor is fabulous, antiques and ornaments that would normaly be behind glass. Our room was large and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and very good. They also have an enormous cat who visited us when we asked to... More

Stayed one night only at start of walking holiday - could have stayed longer. Imposing house, full of antiques and art. Friendly welcome, large bedroom, adequate shower room. All top quality. Peaceful nights sleep. The food at breakfast was well above average - well cooked and ample portions. Good value.

It's been a while since I've stayed in the Old Bank house B&B but if anything they have managed to get better. The rooms are spotless the food is top notch and the owners David and Annette are a class above. For walking or sightseeing tours the Old Bank House is a perfect place to start and I hasten to...

We VERY much enjoyed our 2-night stay at the Old Bank House in Melrose. Our breakfasts were delicious. The room was charming, and very comfortable. Secure storage for bicycle. The B&B has an eclectic collection of art which is a feast for the eye. The dishes are vintage, "The Old Italian" by Spode's. Excellent location right in town.

Dave was a gracious host. And if you get him going on Scottish independence and politics you will find that he is also great with words and observations and has strong patriotic feelings. The B&B itself is very good, wifi reception in most rooms very good, traditional breakfast predictably good. Street parking ( but usually no problem to find free... More
