We stayed here on 28 August 2004.
An earlier attempt to make a recommendation on Trip advisor failed because the establishment did not have a web page.
This is the first season that David and Rosie Jones have been operating their B&B which is conveniently situated around 500m from the centre of Melrose. There is secure parking at the front of the house.
We were warmly greeted and, after being shown our rooms & offered the choice of duvet or blankets, invited to have afternoon tea with biscuits and cake in the comfortable guest drawing room.
All the rooms were clean & well decorated and good quality toiletries were provided in the bathroom.
David recommended a restaurant in Melrose town for our evening meal and made the reservation for us. We were not disappointed with the quality of the food which was inventive and well priced.
We returned from dinner to find the curtains in our room drawn and the bed clothes turmed back. The bed linens, towels and dressing gowns provided were of excellent quality The beds were very comfortable if a little soft on first impression.
A good quality TV with remote control was provided which allowed us to watch Kelly Holmes gain her second Olympic gold medal.
Breakfast, served at any reasonable time to suit guests' requirements consisted of cereals, fruits, juices, cold meats and cheese, toast, jams, honeycomb honey, as well as traditional bacon, eggs etc and smoked fish and kedgeree!! .. surely enough to suit all tates.
A freshly typed menu with the day's weather forecaste was produced. Cloth napkins with rings and excellent coffee (or tea for those preferring it) - always a good pointer to quality food - were provided.
The accomodation, hospitality and service could not be bettered. We would recommend a stay at Eildon House to anyone visiting the beautiful Scottish borders.
