This is a review of the pub. We stopped here for lunch in May after a nice walk over from Tweedbank. It is a pleasant pub on the main street in Melrose. The pub looked nice and cozy inside but it was warm enough for us to sit outside on their nice sheltered patio. Nice selection of beer – we... More

Pleasant little hotel. The staff seemed a little off putting at first, but they warmed up greatly. The rooms were nicely appointed, with a tea/coffee service. They were clean and well cared for. There is a pub on the ground floor so you might want to ask for a room in the rear, as those on the street side catch... More

Went to Kings Arms for Sunday lunch, on last Bank Holiday in May and have to say very disappointed with both the choice of food and then the quality of the food served. Used to use this hotel regularly for lunch however, not likely to be back after this disappointing meal.

This hotel is in the centre of Melrose within walking distance of restaurants, cafes, shops and the beautiful Melrose Abbey. Despite being on the main street it is very quiet and peaceful. The room I stayed in was very clean and comfortable with good TV and Wi-Fi and great breakfasts. Downstairs there are two bars with an open fire which... More

We booked a table at this popular resteraunt and was glad that we did. Our 84 year old requested a smaller portion of fish and chips and was provided with a smaller plate. That was appreciated and the 3 of us all had a dessert too. We loved the banter with Ann who is a special lady with fantastic customer... More

Friendly staff, large room, central location and tasty food. Nice decking bit out the back to enjoy an afternoon beer and wonderfully dog friendly. But a bit shabby, needing redecoration and new stair carpet. The bedroom floor leaned inwards which was kinda quirky. Breakfast a bit mediocre. Main downside was hotel took first night prior to arrival then full amount... More

A friendly welcome and a good breakfast chef does not disguise the fact that the hotel is in desperate need of internal refurbishment. The stairs and landings were in poor condition, especially the carpets. We were in room 6 on the top floor. The bathroom suite was fine. However, the window was so high it could not be looked through,... More

I decided it was time to celebrate the opening of the new Borders Railway: I travelled down from Dundee; then on to Tweedbank Station and walked the remaining couple of miles in sunshine into Melrose. I made straight for The King's Arms where I'd enjoyed many previous visits admittedly a good few years ago. But to-day was special: and The... More
