The wind however did not detract from the extremely warm welcome we had at Burt's. I have stayed here a couple of times in the past, it is how I believe a hotel in th Borders should be like, tastefully and warmly decorated and bustling with locals and visitors. The staff was professional and friendly, the meals at the bar... More

Melrose is a great town in the Scottish Borders and Burts is a fabulous country hotel which has recently been refurbished very tastefully. Excellent food and extensive, sensibly priced wine list coupled with charming staff and management. We will most certainly be back.

We decided to have a last minute short break and were looking for a reasonable priced hotel with good food, not to far form home. We booked Burts on line and found a little borders gem. Although our room was in the eaves, it was still roomy clean and comfortable. Beds were made and room cleaned while we were at... More

Met up with family for Mothers Day Lunch which was lovely with a varied menu to suit all tastes for both children and adults.It was nice to see a real fire burning in the grate offering a warm welcome.This wasn't our first visit and as usual we weren't disappointed.

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
