On our last few days in Scotland we decided to see the Abbys of the border region and decided to stay in Melrose on a whim. Great idea! This lovely little town is really quaint and centrally located to all the good sights. This hotel is great with a caring staff, great bar/restaurant and easy parking. The rooms are plush... More

The wife, my brother-in-law and nephew all opted for the roast beef, when it arrived it was seriously rare, and I... More

Very friendly and accommodating staff, excellent food, lovely location. Melrose is a splendid place, I find the locals are always eager to chat and accept you into their activities. Stalking the haggis is a must-do activity arranged by one of the local high street shops and, of course, the town is the start of the famous St Cuthbert's Way (Drunk... More

The rooms have been further improved and the communal areas as ever are well maintained, The outside courtyard is a peaceful and sunny haven to relax in, as is the... More

Stayed for one night & we were very impressed by the quality & comfort of this hotel, it is much better than a lot of 4 star hotels we have stayed in, not only the room but the communal areas, lovely carpets & decor. Food was also first class, dinner served by very genuinely friendly staff was delicious. Had a... More

Staying with friends in the Borders over Easter we went to the Townhouse for lunch. Our friends have eaten there many times and highly recommended we all went there - it did not disappoint. We ate in the brasserie and the menu was extensive with plenty of choice for all of us, even though we had one vegetarian and one... More
