We had a great weekend here , indeed our second. The main rooms are lovely, well decorated and comfortable. The entertainment is great and the food very acceptable. There has to be a downside and unfortunately the bedrooms although warm and clean are a little tired but still comfortable. Wouldn't put me off staying there again . Thouroughly enjoyed it

We enjoyed a Shearings 5 Day Coach Holiday and found it to be a very nice hotel with good food, great entertainment, an included trip to Edinburgh and a trip to Hawick plus four free drinks on Wednesday. What a bargain at £109 each. We had a feeder coach to Gretna Green to join the coach to Melrose. There are...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The stately looking Waverley Castle Hotel, situated one mile outside the town of Melrose, is set splendidly in five acres of rolling parkland at the heart of the Scottish Borders. Nestling between the River Tweed and the Eildon Hills, it is a stunning building boasting stunning views. Guests can happily relax in the Eildon Restaurant and enjoy outstanding views out over the Eildon Hills. After dinner you can continue your evening in the welcoming bar and ballroom where you can dance the night away to our excellent evening entertainment. The area is perfect for those who like to get out and explore. There are several sightseeing walks to enjoy nearby including one along the River Tweed. Historical Edinburgh is easily accessible by car for a day trip and is well worth a visit for the castle, shops, architecture and much more. ... more   less
