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...

Having used this Hotel for a number of years I decided to arrange a visit for our local car group because of the quiet and reasonably secure parking. The service provided was excellent, with the staff most attentive. Both breakfast and our evening meals were gastronomic feasts, we are now on diets! Seriously, the quality and quantity were more than... More

This is an excellent place to stay with well-equipped rooms and efficient and friendly staff. The breakfast was a great way to start the day. The restaurant provided an excellent evening meal with good service. There were good wines to choose from as well. It is in the centre of the town in easy walking distance of Melrose Abbey and...

A very big thank you on behalf of the Expense Reduction Analysts Ride the Regions team for the hospitality and helpfulness. Willingly allowed us to store the cycles over night in an hotel room and generally looked after U.S. Very well. Excellent choice and standard of food! Would definitely recommend this hotel if you intend to visit this area.

We visited Burt's in Melrose and found it to be a really pleasant radio all hotel. The food was excellent, the service attentive and the room comfortable. It is a great base to cover the borders with off street parking. There is a pleasant garden when the weather is warm enough. Our group thoroughly enjoyed the short break.

Burt's Hotel is the premier hotel in Melrose. A small and attractive town in the Scottish Borders. The hotel itself offers a high standard of accommodation - the rooms are comfortable and attractive, the staff are helpful and efficient and the food is very good. It isn't especially cheap, but it is value for money. It's location in the centre... More

We have stayed before at Burts a couple of years ago and were pleased to see the rooms had been upgraded. The food in the bar was excellent and there was a good atmosphere throughout the hotel, the staff were helpful and efficient. The Scottish breakfast was the best one we have ever experienced in Scotland, fortunately, I had a... More
