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

Arriving through the backdoor and being greeted by a wary voice high above on the first floor, our first impression was...is this the right place? David is a character. He and his wife have created a little sanctuary for the weary traveller. Furnished with antiques and tastefully decorated with delightful artwork, some of it his own whimsy, we quickly settled...

We hit the bullseye here! My wife & I have stayed in loads of B&B's all over the country in the 38 years that we've been married and this is one of the best we've stayed in. Do not be put off by outside appearances, it's on the corner of a small junction in the small town of Melrose, but... More

My wife and I stayed at the Old Bank House in Melrose for one night as a recommendation from a friend. The website does not do the place justice; a gorgeous entrance hall which has been tastefully but lavishly decked out for Christmas proceeded up to a second floor with a grand dining room. The bedrooms were one further floor... More
