We stayed at Burt's hotel in the pristine border town of Melrose prior to walking St Cuthbert's Way. I am quite discerning (some may say fussy!) but I thought this hotel was faultless. We arrived mid evening, we were warmly greeted and went to eat in the bar. Had an excellent meal, delicious fish and good Spanish wine. The bedroom... More

Melrose is a lovely market town in the Scottish Borders. Most Border town have ruined abbeys, but I believe Melrose Abbey is the most impressive. Right around the corner from the Abbey on the town square is Burts Hotel. You can not choose a better place to stay in the Scottish Borders. The rooms are all ensuite and well decorated,... More

I booked well in advance with the owners as they are popular, three nights stay and was made most welcome by all the management & staff. Excellent Bar food and Lock Ness Wilderness Special beer to wash the food down. Clean rooms & safe car parking at the rear. I would return there to see more first class Rugby Football... More

A warm and friendly welcome with the owners (the Henderson family) enthusiastic and amiable hosts and clearly integral to the running of this excellent small hotel. My room was of a very good standard, breakfast was excellent, served in the very nice dinning room. I enjoyed a very good bar meal the night before washed down by well-kept Timothy Taylor's.... More

Centrally placed in the town with parking. The food was excellent. Dining room old fashioned but also old world feel which was very relaxing although most people were eating in the bar area and with not many people in the dining room it lacked atmosphere. Room was clean and fresh with all amenities but a little noisy at times as... More
