We spent a night in Melrose in order to visit Melrose Abbey, Abbotsford (Sir Robert Scott's old home), Scott's View and Dryburgh Abbey. Melrose is a lovely small town and Dumfermline House is a very nice and comfortable B&B at a good price. Melrose is definitely worth a stop and Dunfermline is an excellent place to stay with a nice... More

A lovely B&B to spend a night during our cycle ride. Very helpful hosts, clean, quiet room with spotless bathroom. Excellent breakfast with a good choice of fruit and cereals as well. Bikes were safely stored and we were able to leave our panniers for an hour in the morning while we visited the Abbey. Highly recommended.

We found Dunferline House to be a comfortable, quiet home away from home in a great location close to the abbey. Alison & Brian were very friendly & provided us with a fabulous breakfast to start our day.

Melrose is a beautiful town and Dunfermline House is in a perfect location, very close to the Abbey. Brian and Alison run a lovely B and B, very professionally, and very helpfully. They were extremely accommodating about our luggage on two occasions, when we had to impose upon them. And breakfasts were delicious!

Thank you very much for your kind words when reviewing Dunfermline House. We were happy to help our with the luggage (though a wee bit worried about the replacing of the key into the safe by the others!). All appears to have been okay. Thank you again. Alison More

We got off the National Express bus right opposite and walked in. We were welcomed and looked after without any feeling of fussiness. Comfortable room with great bathroom and a view of the Abbey as the website says. Good wifi, which is not mentioned on the website, so that was a pleasant surprise. Breakfast menu was varied and what we... More

Found and booked this B&B online. We stayed in Melrose in May of 2015. Found the prices to be fair and comparable to others. The accommodations are clean with all the amenities we needed. The breakfast was choice from yogurt to full cooked traditional Scottish breakfast. Our hosts and owners, Mr. & Mrs. Bell were accommodating, helpful with travel advice... More

Warm welcome, comfortable bed in cosy bedroom, huge breakfast choices both buffet and cooked to order. Plenty of eating places nearby in Melrose for evening meals. A great place to start St Cuthberts Way from.

If you're looking for Sky Sports on the box or 'live' entertainment, this is NOT the place for you! Brian's singing, whilst melodious(?), serves only to detract from Alison's excellent, cooked-to-order breakfast. A veritable feast is laid before you each morning- all fresh, all tempting. The rooms are very comfortable and warm; great hot shower, resident hairdryer - peace and... More
