Stayed in this beautiful little B&B for one night to attend a wedding. The staff were excellent, especially Helen. She opened the kitchen 15 minutes early so I wouldn't leave without having breakfast because my train back was very early in the morning. The room was very clean and cozy. I would definitely recommend this lovely B&B for anyone looking... More

We had a very comfortable night in Braidwood house. Breakfast was superb. Be aware that the steps are steep and if this is an issue for you, see if you can book the ground floor room. We were on the third level under the eaves and low ceilings but still enjoyed our spacious room. The bathroom was a large space... More

We stayed here for one night at the end of May - it is a lovely little B&B, ideally located and there is on street parking and car park nearby. We were able to get into our room a little earlier than 3pm, we were welcomed by the owners sister (she was looking after the B&B for the weekend) she... More

Melrose was my first stop on my first trip to Scotland, which was the first time I've traveled alone in another country as well. I'd chosen the Braidwood for my stay of two nights, 9 and 10 May 2016, based on its website, reviews, and calling the Braidwood from the States to make the booking, and I'm so happy I... More

The most comfortable bed you could wish for! Lovely B&B in the centre of Melrose. Friendly hosts and very helpful. Great breakfast with a range of dishes to choose from. Happy to do an early breakfast as we had a bus to catch. Very quiet at night.

I was in the downstairs room at the front which is very comfortable. It is sizeable and has none of the headroom issues others have highlighted. The bathroom is halfway up the main stairs, which is not ideal. The location, close to the Abbey and just one street away from the High Street could not be better.

Lovely B&B. Central location. We had the top room and the bathroom was spacious and great to have a bath. But as bedroom was in roof space even I at 5ft tall could only stand up straight in one place in the room. Tall people would have problems. Storage of bikes was in the open garden which is not suitable... More
