We were in Melrose for a wedding, Burts Hotel was a perfect place to stay, and in such a lovely small town that obviously takes great pride in itself. Breakfast was excellent, the porridge and kippers in particular, as was dinner. A small issue was the stain on the bed throw, otherwise clean and comfortable.

Melrose is a nice small village, buildings and surrounds are well cared for. Good variety of shops, cafes and restaurants.

Short Stay In Melrose
I traveled to Melrose on business for one night, and arrived at Burts later in the evening. The hotel was lovely, welcoming, clean with friendly reception staff. I was only staying one night and asked if my room had a bath, I was told no, but the receptionist then looked to see if she could put me in another room that did - which she could, great service! As I was leaving early in the morning I asked what breakfast was. As i was in a hurry the receptionist offered to get a breakfast tray sent up to my room. Above and beyond what I could have expected. The room was perfect, exactly what I needed - very clean and comfortable. The decor is a wee bit dated, and the room a bit hot but I would skirt over that and recommend this hotel to anyone that was thinking of staying in Melrose.

2 Night Stay
Selected this hotel from the internet. Good package for DB&B for the two nights, accompanied by my mother who had a single room rate (this was actually a small double with ensuite - which was superb)

Located in the middle of the town within easy reach of the Abbey, and the High Street which has numerous quality shops.

This is what we would call a traditional hotel, with wood panelling, and plenty of tweed which reflects the locality. The diningroom was superb and we ate there both nights. The varied choice menu was included within our package whether we opted for the higher priced steaks or vegetarian option. The food was first class, well presented and delicious. Scallops, quail, chicken, whatever was served was of the same high quality. Very good selection wines and some bubbly for that special occasion! We were also impressed with the diningroom service which had the right mix of warmth and friendliness without losing that professional touch. Nothing was too much bother and this, we would say, was what made the stay so special.

The rooms were well furnished and very comfortable, though the carpets in the hotel were a tad \'well-worn\' in places, though this is only a minor comment.

Overall, we would certainly stay at this hotel again, and thought Melrose one of the most appealing towns in the area.

Easter In Borders
Burts Hotel was a warm and welcoming base in Melrose. Town Centre Hotel so some traffic noise was to be expected in our room at front of Hotel. The room was clean and comfortable, only grumbles were the rather temperamental electric shower (hot then cold then hot) and the rather tiny tv. (minor gripe but neither reflected a £150 a night room.) Food in hotel is excellent and staff are attentive and very friendly. It is clearly a local favourite too.

Great Hotel
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Burt's Hotel. They were great with helping us with our luggage up and down the stairs. Dinner was amazing and the desserts to die for. Our room was clean & cute but was above the kitchen. We could hear dishes clanking, and the smell of some great food being cooked downstairs. Our room was missing the window screen. The beds were comfy and we had a great nights sleep. The breakfast that was included was plenty of food and again excellent. Great location on the square and plenty of parking. Just a few short blocks to Melrose Abbey. Hands down we would love to stay here again!!

Enjoyable But Definite Points To Consider...
Hi. We have stayed at the hotel before and really enjoyed it - hence my booking a return for our valentines weekend. We have marked it as a 4/5 as there are some points to consider. I was disappointed by our dinner table. I booked weeks earlier and asked for a nice, private table but found us placed in an unfavourable table of the restaurant - opposite the kitchen and next to the linen cupboard. I think the rooms need more than one small bath/ shower gel. The chairs in the bar are a bit worn. The big bouquet of flowers in the dinning room is a bit dated. I am vegetarian and would like the option of another main course on the menu. Whilst these are points to consider, we are fussy and we did enjoy our stay again. There is a genuine warmth and charm to your hotel and that is important to continue to draw people to stay.

Gastronomic Cycling
On previous visits to Melrose we're stayed at the YHA and had eaten at Burt's Hotel. Sadly no YHA in town, so to celebrate our wedding anniversary we booked for 2 nights DBB at Burt's Hotel on their special offer. We arrived by cycle and were pleased to note that staff had arranged a place for the bikes- valued guests! A hot shower and a good cup of tea ( fresh milk provided) were just what was needed. We were surprised and delighted to be told that the 'special'offer extended to both the bar and restaurant menus, with no restrictions on food. We opted to eat in the bar on Friday night and the restaurant on Saturday. We were not disappointed; the food was delicious- an inspired mix of tastes & textures all beautifully presented. It would be hard to pick out a favourite dish- but the rhubarb and ginger sorbet, which I selected along with pear and chocolate ice cream was a perfect blend of flavours .

The breakfast menu didn't disappoint- a good range of well cooked high quality local ingredients- Eyemouth Smoked haddock with a poached egg cooked to perfection.

We noted that all the guests, locals and visitors were welcomed warmly, giving the bar an atmosphere that makes you want to return. The full tables in the restaurant and bar vouch for the quality of the food. Waiting staff were obliging, although 1 or 2 would benefit with a smile for customers.

Our bedroom was a little dated, but was warm and clean with a good shower, which was is needed after a full day's cycling. Only other slight niggle is the trend for hotels to make a double bed from 2 single beds not the nicest sleeping space for couple, with a dividing ridge.
