Just had a Monday to Friday visit and must say how clean and friendly everything was including the public areas. However, the state of the corridors (of which there are many) are in need of some serious refurbishment. Paintwork was scratched and paper was torn and in places coming away from the walls. The ceiling tiles were in need of... More

Location about a mile out of Melrose in a quiet area in well tended grounds. Our room, on the ground floor, was huge, twin beds, table and 2 chairs... More

We spent four nights here as part of a Shearings coach trip. We found it to be an average Bay Hotel - rooms that weren't quite up to standard, food that was plentiful but not too exciting and decor that needed a bit of attention. But you get what you pay for. Overall the facilities were impressive - large dining... More

My Mum and I stayed for 4 nights and highly recommend it. The food the service and room were very good, great value for money, and the entertainment was excellent.James the compare, singer, comedian, was worth the price of the holiday on its own. We have never laughed so much, James was so entertaining and had us in raptures, he... More

The bar and kitchen staff worked very hard and deserve a special mention, always smiling and pleasant . James , well, he's a legend isn't he! He was unfairly barracked by a customer who... More

We stayed for 2 nights visiting the area by car but at this hotel we were treated as if we were on a coach tour as an OAP, (neither of which we are, but the hotel seeems to specialise in). I have stayed in hotels all round the world but this is the worst place I have ever stayed in-... More
