Pretty hotel. Good food and nice bar. Older staff ways to familiar and almost rude! She should retire as this is a very bad example for the younger staff!! We were there 3 nights but cancelled 2 dinners due to her attitude. Shame as this is a beautifull setting.

Two rooms - one upgraded, one not. Different prices for each. The bedrooms were comfortable and traditional but there was no need for the heating! The Evening meal was ok but seating in the bar was squashed, wallpaper books and not the real thing - no! And plastic flowers in the foyer - better not to bother! Dinner was fine... More

This place was bustling on a Saturday night, busy bar trade, we checked in and had a good, not great, dinner. The rooms were variously sized, my daughter's much bigger than mine, beds were comfortable. Parking is cramped so don't come back late. Overall a quality hotel, worth the premium price.

We had a great bar meal last night(11thAug) at Burt's. Very comprehensive menu and wine list. Good atmosphere and lovely food and very attentive staff. Our favourite in Melrose. Thank you Nick!! Susan and Mal Young

Room very comfortable. Bathroom and loo would benefit from some modernisation. Evening meal in bar was excellent, as was breakfast. Staff friendly and helpful. Parking on site and free, a bonus. Good situation in centre of town.

Stayed here one night on our way through on a charity cycle ride from Edinburgh to Southampton. The host were most accommodating to everything from storing our bikes, to providing a fabulous early breakfast. Rooms were ultra clean and really comfortable. Best surprise of all was the magnificent quality of the food in the restaurant downstairs. Just what we needed.... More

My daughter and I were agreed that the 'full Scottish' breakfast was the best that either of us had ever experienced anywhere in the world and enhanced still further by being served in the delightful formal dining room, with its well-spaced tables and friendly and efficient staff. If you are looking for the latest in decorative chic, then this hotel... More

In short The service was slow, failed to check on whether we wanted drinks topped up, brought the starters out separately and too far apart (the first lot were going cold by the time we got the final one), the burger bun was stale, a 'well-done" steak still ran with blood when cut, serving staff leant over us (rudely) when...
