Stopped here with my son during the "Coasts and Castles" cycle ride this month, a good choice! Welcoming helpful hosts providing comfortable, quiet rooms with an excellent en-suite. A good breakfast served with a large choice and all you could require. The hosts were attentive to our needs and provided good advice on local restaurants etc. I certainly recommend this... More

Bryan and Alison are very welcoming, rooms very comfortable and quiet, ensuite excellent, delicious breakfast with a wide choice. Would be happy to stay there again. Melrose is a pretty town and the Abbey is well worth visiting.

Five of us recently had the pleasure of staying a night at the Dunfermline House in Melrose. On our 7 night hiking adventure we stay at a different B&B each night. It was a delight to arrive at this B&B and we were not disappointed for our entire stay. The innkeeper was friendly and helpful (and even got out his... More

My second stay here has been as pleasant as the first! My room was nicely furnished and well-appointed. Despite overlooking the road, it was quiet and we slept well. Everything worked! Plenty of hot water, a TV which worked (not always the case in every hotel or B&B), good wifi. Excellent breakfast, nice fresh fruit salad, high quality ingredients, wel-cooked,... More

Had 2 nights here visiting friends. Excellent b&b with particularly good breakfast. Right in the heart of Melrose. I got there after 7pm so parking was easy. Friendly owners and good wi-fi. I would highly recommend.

Stayed for one night recently en route biking to Edinburgh on Coast & Castles route. We were pleasantly greeted on arrival before bikes were safely stored (an essential feature of this accommodation). Our rooms were of a very high standard and made for a comfortable stay with a terrific Scottish breakfast. Just what we needed for hills to come. We... More

A very nice and clean B&B which gave us a lovely view over the hill. Bed could have been better, however! Breakfast was great and owners very nice people. Very centrally located in Melrose, at a stone's throw from the Abbey.

My dad and I stayed here the night before setting off on the St Cuthbert's Way. Just as everyone else says, you really feel like you've come up trumps staying here. Lovely hosts, quiet comfy room with a view of the abbey, wifi (which was lacking in most other places we stayed), great breakfast! Would definitely stay again, and Melrose... More

Stayed here on our first night before starting our St Cuthberts Way walk, very warm welcome, clean and cosy room and a great breakfast in the morning, what more could you want to set you off on your 65 miles to Holy Island.
