Stayed last weekend 21st Aug to 24th Aug 2015 at this Hotel on a Caledonian Tour. Once again Tour excellent value for money. The room was ideal at the Hotel as we had a renovated room which was very spacious on the Ground Floor. The corridors are in need of an overhaul but the rooms were spotless and the staff... More

Very efficient reception. Friendly, helpful and cheerful staff. Comfortable accommodation. Everything worked as it should. Exceptional catering. Free WiFi in the Reception area, but it worked in Room 102, being directly above..

This is a very pleasant hotel set in nice gardens, which makes it quiet and restful. The service was excellent all round with helpful people in every area. The meals were OK but a little restricted, especially if you are over fussy like me. However, at the reasonable prices and comfortable and clean rooms one should not complain too much.... More

After reading all the negative reviews I was a bit worried about staying at the hotel so I was pleasantly surprised on arrival. The staff on reception were very polite and helpful, we had a very nice clean room over looking the grounds. Breakfast was fine with a good choice served by pleasant staff as was our evening meal. Admittedly... More

ideally located near the delightful small border town of Melrose, the hotel is an absolute joy. We booked through Shearings Holidays on a self drive long weekend. Everything was efficient and thoroughly relaxing. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food (we were on half board terms) was First Class; a great selection and beautifully prepared, cooked and served.... More

At £129 for a night we expected far better. No toiletries provided apart from a small bar of soap. Carpet stained. Bed ok with clean sheets. But the poor building is falling to bits peeling paper scuffed chipped paintwork. Really sad building and the breakfast room looks like an old people's home from the 70s with leaking radiators and a... More

Stayed at the waverly castle as part of a shearings five day break. Originally this hotel would have been impressive, sadly it is no more. The whole of the hotel smells of terrible damp and on the third floor where our room was, the smell was overpowering. Our room 304 had damp stains on the wall and our window overlooked... More
