This was a nice little B&B in a really nice little town on the Scottish borders. Melrose is a cute place and Dunfermline House is one street back from the main street and about 100 metres from the abbey entrance. It's very well-located yet still fairly quiet. The hosts are very friendly and breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Parking was... More

I was traveling with 3 other people on a 7 day walking trip. All of us agreed that this was our favorite stop! The place was charming, comfortable, and cute. The owners were very nice and had great suggestions for dinner. Breakfast was perfect!

My partner and I have now stayed here 3 times for short walking breaks. The rooms are always comfy and immaculate, with more than the normal amount of no-charge items such as bottled water and toothbrush, as well as tea, coffee etc. Little touches that make a difference. The breakfasts are magnificent with a large selection of cooked items, as... More

Stayed at this B&B for 5 nights whilst fishing the River Tweed. Comfortable, quiet single room. Excellent breakfasts. Located in the centre of Melrose with convenient parking close by. Easy to walk to everything in the attractive small town.

We stayed here one night and found it an excellent location, good size room with everything you would need, with a thoughtful basket of goodies in the bathroom. Very well organised, reasonable price. Very high quality breakfast with fresh food, grilled and tasty. Helpful landlord. Would definitely return

An excellent place to start our walk on St Cuthbert's way. Alison and Bryan are wonderful hosts, recommending places to eat for an evening meal. The room was very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent, a good choice, cooked to order. Thank you!
