Stayed here for one night on business in area. Room was very comfortable, looked to have been recently renovated, very clean. The shower could have had a little more power. Ate in the bar, food excellent. Breakfast was excellent, good quality food and large portions. Would stay again.

An excellent one night stay. Staff friendly and helpful with welcoming cup of tea in front of open fire in the bar. Room fine. Supper in bar on packed Valentines night was excellent with really helpful staff in attendance. Breakfast was also excellant. The efficient and friendly service made our short stay a delight and this hotel is a truly... More

A last minute booking after a problem elsewhere saved by Burts! Their online booking system unfortunately didn't give us the superior room we booked but they were skilful at dealing with the problem. Actually the "standard" room was fine, easily large enough, with plenty of storage, and importantly for Scotland warm! Large car park, and breakfast was more than enough.... More

We arrived as a party of five people at 2.05pm on a drizzly November Monday. Lunch we were told had stopped being served 5 minutes earlier. It seems it was not possible to extend their lunchtime to accommodate our needs. So we slimmed down our request to 'soup and sandwiches'. Still not possible. What sort of delivery of Scottish hospitality... More

This was our first dining experience in Scotland when we moved to the Borders nearly 40 years ago. We revisit from time to time. Nostalgic you think - but this place has an extraordinary bar menu. A few days ago I had a lovely chorizo and sea bream risotto. The scampi in a basket of 1970s fame, we presume, had... More

Had booked a twin room for our first stay in Scotland. My traveling companion was delayed 24 hours in the U.S., so I ventured to Melrose alone. We had foolishly decided to depend on her iTouch for contact & passed up cell phones, so our only contact point was Burt's email address & phone. The Hendersons graciously conveyed messages for...
