Adequate on-road parking, clean and comfortable inside. Nice breakfast with lots of choice. Children made welcome. The only tiny negative was that one of the beds was a little too soft for my liking but still worth five stars. Also Melrose is a charming town with good access tothe Border countryside.

We arrived very tired at around 8.30pm after walking the Borders Abbey Way from Hawick (22 miles or so). We were greeted warmly and shown our room at the top of the house which was an attic room with sloping ceiling and a seperate private bathroom across the hall. Everything you could expect from a Scottish guest house and a... More

It is always nice to get a good review, but I have to point out in this case it is not for Dunfermline House, as we do not have any attic rooms. It would not be fair to accept praise that is not due. Alison More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights recently. Bryan and Alison were great hosts, the rooms and breakfast room were all clean, tidy and well kept. Wonderfully cosy little B&B with friendly owners. We would not hesitate to stay here again when we visit Melrose. Thank you Bryan & Alison.

We spent the night last night and enjoyed our stay here. Excellent brekky, Bryan was very nice (his wife was on holiday), very close to the Abbey and parking was free and convenient. Next door to excellent restaurant (Marmion's Brasserie). We didn't give it a 5 star rating because the room was smaller than other B&B's we've seen to in... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to review Dunfermline House. The wife has now returned (!) and I am very glad that Bryan looked after you well.

Just back from visiting the borders area where we were fortunate enough to spend two nights at this guest house. We received a warm welcome from Alison. Our room was spotless with loads of storage space, a great ensuite bathroom, comfy bed and a well stocked hospitality tray with all sorts of tea and coffee plus a packet of delicious... More

Booked this very last minute but couldn't have chosen better place. Very friendly and welcoming hosts. Great location to see the area. Could not fault the room. Breakfast was delicious with great choice. This was quick trip but we will definitely be back for a longer stay.

Excellent in every way. The attention to detail is remarkable from the choice of toiletries and hot drinks selection in the room to the variety on offer at breakfast. All sorts of different cooked breakfasts available,but when I asked for a not-on-the-menu boiled egg, Brian's response was simply, 'two?' Altogether too notch.
