Relaxing Night AwayPosted Jun 9, 2014
Pros: As above
Cons: As above
Location: Floors. Castle and. Gardens were good-free entry if you stay at the Hotel.Melrose is a pleasant little town.
My wife and i hadn't staryed at this hotel for a few years. The last time we were there we thought it looked a little tired. The owners have clearly spent some serious money refurbishing it and it was very swish. The staff were very efficient and the evening meal was of a very high standard with excellent unobtrusive service. The menu is vey fairly priced and offers a wide range of choice. Breatfast was very relaxed and the "Full Scottish" will sort most people out for the day! In terms of room we had a 4 poster room which was spacious and comfortable. My only slight criticism is that is had potential to be a bit stuffy as. I could not open any of the windows in the room itself. However that is but a mere trifle-we will definately be coming back and. I will bring some friends and golf clubs next time! Finally I suspect that this is a hotel which is probably better for couples and older children than young families although it is well placed as a base for attractions in the. South of Scotland.

Great choice!Posted Apr 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
Lovely old building in beautiful landscape; the warmth of the open fires was matched only by the warmth of service. We'd planned to eat out on one of the evenings but the food was so good we ate in on all three…a great way to celebrate my husband's birthday.We'll be back!

An old world Scottish feel with great food, pleasant staff and lovely surroundings made this a very enjoyable stay. The decor is a traditional which suits the building and while the rooms are a bit tired, they are clean and the tiredness gives the place a lot of charm and character. Great selection of whisked as well!

We will be back!Posted Sep 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed for one night as we had a business meeting the following day. Room was lovely, bed very comfortable and so good to have a lovely large bath and bathroom. Quality toiletries and even a tray for tea/coffee, something you don't often find in 'top' hotels - I have never understood why. We had an issue during dinner but was handled very well and much appreciated. We hope to be back very soon.

Beautiful place!Posted Jul 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
What a beautiful hotel in a ideal setting. We stayed there to go to The Open. The town of Kelso is beautiful. The food was wonderful. Only problem was the heat and no air con. Otherwise, we will definitely go back and play some golf.

Great for relaxing stayPosted Jul 9, 2013
Location: Lovely location with outstanding views. Lovely gardens.
The staff were delightful, helpful and polite. Our room was on the ground floor. The room was good with an extremely comfortable bed. It was slightly let down by the bathroom, I could only describe the roman blind and being in rags, it should be replaced as a priority. The food was fabulous, a fine dining experience. Breakfast was excellent, my kipper was very tasty. Very relaxing stay.

A splendid getawayPosted Jun 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is utterly beautiful and so impressive to drive up to. The rooms are clean, very comfortable and well decorated, whilst the common rooms feel homely and warm. The grounds are bursting with activities (golf, fishing, you name it) but for the less adventurous, are great for a short stroll. The local town of Kelso has brilliant pubs and shops if you fancy eating out of the fine restaurant. The inclusive breakfast is a huge reason to return: a full Scottish breakfast that will save you the need to eat all day!
