We took my mum for her 81st birthday to this hotel as they did a carvery. However we had to wait about an hour before we got any food. First of all you have to wait for the vegetables to be brought to the table, you then have to queue up for your meat, so by the time you get... More

Our party of six was met by helpful friendly staff. All our rooms were clean and comfortable. The food at both dinner and breakfast was exceptional. We were told that the hotel had recently been taken over by a husband and wife team. They have certainly made an impressive start. If we are ever in the area again we will... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the carvery at this pub in Melrose...perfect for a great value Sunday lunch and at £9.95 reasonably priced for what you get. We went mid afternoon and the meat was slightly dry but plentiful. The accompaniments were fresh and well cooked. Good range of ales and deliciously tempting desserts to which I succumbed! I would recommend and I... More

Thoroughly enjoyed an overnight stay at the Kings Arms. Our room was comfortable, clean and warm. The food in the restaurant was excellent; very well cooked, presented and reasonably priced. We had not thought to book a table for dinner and even although it was very busy, a table was sorted out for us. Bar prices were also very good... More

We had an appointment at the Borders General Hospital and so arrived here at 2-35, we asked if we could have lunch but were told they stopped serving at 2-30. The staff at the bar asked us to wait and checked with the kitchen and we were told that yes we could have lunch. All the staff were friendly, efficient... More

She checked us in quickly and discussed if we wanted to book a table for a meal, we booked a table for three (out daughter was joining us later on for the evening meal) Spent a quiet hour waiting...

We stopped in Melrose, which is a lovely town, during our road trip around Scotland. Unfortunately, we didn't reserve any B&B so our last option limited by our budget was this hotel. At night, you're entering through the bar and ask for the bar manager for available rooms. My experience from that, isn't that great - but I didn't have... More

A gem in the wonderful town of Melrose, Scotland. We actually stayed in "The Cottage" which is a self catering unit attached to the rear of the hotel, because the hotel rooms were all booked. It more than suited my husband and my needs. The hotel staff went way beyond the norm to make our stay enjoyable, even made phone... More
