We booked a private function in this hotel and it could not have been better. The staff were friendly, the service was excellent, and the food was lovely and plentiful. It was a finger buffet, very reasonably priced for what we had, and the room where the function was held was well decorated. Going on this experience would certainly return...

Was really looking forward to staying here as a couple of my colleagues stay here too with work. Got in the first night and had no heating. Owner told me it'll be on at 4.30pm, fine. 7pm still no heating, owner now left and staff were extremely busy. Room was freezing, all other guests on my floor had the same...

Booked with the same group of friends as Jonathan S. Think he actually had a lucky escape with his experience. We should have smelt a rat when we were asked to pay before being shown to our room which was dirty and smelt damp (so much so that I went out to buy an air freshener!!) Four of us ordered...

We had a lovely long Melrose Sevens weekend in the comfortable (not fancy) surroundings of the King's Arms with excellent service and no shortage of great food. Elaine and her team worked tirelessly to ensure that guests and visitors were entertained on the Saturday. All the staff were very helpful (Roz was a real star) which made for a really...

We stayed on Saturday 25th March and had a great time at this hotel. The staff could not have done any more for us and went out of their way to help us settle in. The room was very comfortable and the hotel has a charming "old" feel about it. Spotlessly clean throughout and a really friendly hotel. We did...

We stayed for dinner over Christmas holidays. The food was excellent and generous and the beer too. They have a restaurant area and a dog friendly area with proper tables for dinner. So if you have a dog you can sit comfortably. Nice atmosphere and people. Food was ready in a very reasonable time and price and quality were good...

Fab place to eat and stay and staff very friendly. Food is top class. Highly recommend the beef blade it just melts in your mouth. The prawn cocktail sounds like something plain but here its the best you'll ever taste

Ideal for central Melrose. We stayed here for a wedding and were a little disappointed by a couple of things: - We were told at check in that breakfast was 08:30-10:00, so arrived about 09:15 to find out it finished at 9! Thankfully, we were provided breakfast but it wasn't fresh. - During the morning of getting ready for the...
