I have been here before to eat, but never stayed. Not disappointed. Clean and large room, plenty of space to unpack the bags. Very comfortable beds with soft duvet.
Bath was a little bit small but the water was nice and hot.
Staff were friendly and helpful (even offered to keep the sticky toffee pudding we didn't manage for dinner over until breakfast...)

Had 2 nights stay at the townhouse - superior room was lovely, bed so comfortable, large bathroom (shower was okay, not a proper power shower though). Room had all facilities you'd expect from a 3 star hotel - staff were lovely and very helpful, outside decking area was great to soak up the sun! Food in the brasserie was also great, breakfasts - good choice and options for vegetarians! Thanks so much to the staff for making our weekend so enjoyable.

Room Tip: Superior room have loads of space, sofa & chair, excellent!

The Townhouse Hotel is a lovely little hotel in the centre of Melrose. Tastefully decorated rooms, friendly staff, fantastic breakfast and dinner. We will be back.

We chose to stay at the Townhouse Hotel after reading good reviews on trip advisor. We’re so pleased that the reviews lived up to expectation.

The hotel was spotlessly clean, staff polite & professional and we were upgraded for free due to availability. It’s these gestures that make us want return to a place!

Our room was tastefully decorated, very spacious, with an en-suite bathroom and large mirrored sliding wardrobes. Tea, coffee making facilities were provided with some Scottish short bread biscuits.

We had a tasty two course evening meal in the Brasserie (we pre-booked this) and particularly enjoyed the cooked breakfast the next day. There is a good selection of food for breakfast including fresh fruit, fish, porridge & fruit juices.

Melrose itself is a small, quaint place with surprisingly lots to do including hill-walking, National Trust gardens and the Abbey.

We would like to thank all the staff for a wonderful stay at the hotel. We hope to return soon.
