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

We stopped at the Kings Arms on the 25th January for 1 night B&B. Upon arrival we were greeted by Anna. 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

My friend and I stayed in the King's for two nights last week. We had a large twin room that was spotless. The only comment I would make is that increased water pressure in the shower would be good. There's plenty choice for the cooked breakfast that we enjoyed both mornings. A varied menu for lunch and dinner is served... More

After reading other peoples experiences on here I was quite worried. However I found this hotel value for money,very friendly, very helpful (my arrival time was past midnight as I was stuck on a train for 8 hours Instead of 2) and the breakfast was more than adequate. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again at all. The room was... More

We stayed here on the third day of walking the Borders Abbey Way. We were somewhat disappointed in the room. The bathroom was in need of updating and was a bit tatty (it certainly didn't appear to have been "recently refurbished" as claimed on the website). The hotel really needs to invest in some decent bedding. The pillows were very... More

We arrived at the Kings Arms on the Friday before the Bank Holiday at the end of May and it was more like an October day. We were checked in by a polite young lady who showed us to our rooms. No heating was on and when we enquired she informed us that the heating was on a timer and... More

Stopped in here for a lunch over the recent bank holiday weekend. Menu displayed outside looked nice and my wife and I figured it worth a try. The inside dining area is small but cozy with large comfortable contemporary chairs. The staff were quick to take our order and the menu had plenty to select from. The battered chili was... More
