Hotel Description

SOAK UP THE ATMOSPHERE! Introducing a hotel with a bit of a twist. Created by people who have all the ingredients to make it a success. The Townhouse Hotel, Melrose in the Scottish Borders is the latest creation of the Henderson family - the family which made Burt's a hotel of international renown. Their high standards are carried over into their new Townhouse. A sense of style, colour and a pleasing ambience characterise every aspect of the hotel.

The Townhouse has a newly refurbished function room which can be used to accommodate private dinner parties.

A Much Needed Oasis Of Calm And Comfort
The Townhouse Hotel turned out to be ideal to rest before & after a minor eye operation at the nearby Borders General.

Thoughtful attentive (but not bothersome) staff, immaculate bedroom and ensuite, excellent food (and wine !), right in the town centre (& only 6 nor 7 minutes from Borders General).

I strongly recommend this hotel when visiting delightful Melrose in the heart of the Borders.

Really Nice Place
Good room, friendly helpful staff, very good food. Can’t fault this hotel. Only gave it 4 not 5 for an underdone fondant potato and a slightly draughty conservatory location for pre dinner drink... but it was a freezing snowy evening and all the other grub was great. Oxtail and horseradish risotto - sounds weird but very very good!

Lovely Hotel
Lovely hotel in the centre of Melrose which provides a cosy base to explore the surrounding area. We received a warm welcome from staff who were genuinely friendly and provided a consistently high level of service. Lovely menu in the restaurant and high quality of produce. The hotel is easily accessible from Edinburgh, Glasgow or the south and we would not hesitate to stay here again should we return to the area.

I was made to feel very welcome on my arrival The accommodation was excellent and the room was spacious, comfortable and spotless. Breakfast was piping hot and one of the best that I've had in a hotel. This will be my "go to" hotel whenever I stay in the Borders. I've already recommended it to my colleagues and friends. Looking forward to my next stay.

Great Stopover In Melrose
Had a very comfortable overnight stay in room 5 at the front of the hotel ; very spacious ; 2 armchairs and small table in the room by the window allowing us to sit and read the papers , without one of us having to sit on the bed ! (a pet hate of ours when a double room only has 1 chair !) so full marks for the furnishings !

unfortunately there was a function on that evening so we could not eat in the Brasserie; but we only had to walk across the street to Burt's hotel , where a table was reserved for us in the bar , and we had a very nice meal in a cosy atmosphere , just what was required on a cold winters evening !

Day Trip To Edinburgh
Excellent location in the centre of town and only a few minutes drive to Tweedbank station. Our at the rear of the hotel was quiet and comfortable enough. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. We enjoyed our freshly cooked bacon and eggs. We had an evening meal on one night. My wife thought her partridge with haggis and neeps with whiskey sauce was very tasty. I had breast of Guiana fowl which was nicely cooked but I felt the creamed leeks were over done.

Perfect Central Location And Excellent Service!
We booked a single night stay in the Townhouse to visit a friend who lived locally. Upon arrival we had a very quick turnaround as we were running late. The staff were extremely helpful and ensured check in was speedy and we have an iron and ironing board all setup ready. We were soon on our way without delay.

Upon return, we were able to access the property after hours and had a lovely comfortable night's sleep in a plush kingsize bed.

The highlight was the full Scottish breakfast the next morning. The choice at breakfast is excellent and the staff were efficient and polite.

Finally, check out was extremely slick and we were soon on our way feeling refreshed.

Thank you for a lovely stay, we will definitely be visiting you again!

Lovely comfortable double room with excellent en-suite shower. Very good food and excellent evening meal however we waited a very long time for our main course on Tuesday night and the venison dish was not fully hot. This was even though the dining room rush was over and only had 1 or 2 tables to serve. We didn't complain for fear of the complex plating-up causing more delay. As it was our second night it was a slight anti-climax.

We stayed at The Townhouse at the end of April and had a lovely stay. Nice big, cosy bedroom, huge bathroom, attentive staff and a really delicious, made to order breakfast. We didn't have dinner there but can only assume the food would be of the same high standard. Décor is a bit of Scottish country house with a boutique twist. Very comfortable and luxurious.

Language Problem
A lovely, family run, clean traditional hotel with charm and a brill situation on the market square of this delightful county town. The food was excellent and the diningroom a plrasure to be in. Only marred by the lack of English and attitude of the non-family waiter which caused constant confusion and whose reply to all requests was a curt 'no'... Requiring us to go and find another member of staff on several occasions who then happily and successfully did the job. Hopefully he will have moved on before you book in!

Wonderful stays at Townhouse and I am sure there will be more. Staff all very pleasant and helpful. Rooms very well presented in a difficult property with lack of all round scenic views. Food very good and the roe deer main on my previous visit was exceptional and wanted to order seconds but rare for me showed restraint and now regret!! The only tiny negative comment, which likely highlights my unhealthy lifestyle, is unsalted butter at breakfast and my wife laughs at me when I use the salt grinder on my toast. What the hell I will carry on regardless. Only four stars as still want to find better.

Most Enjoyable Stay At The Townhouse
Just returned home from a Visit toThe Borders. Our decision to stay at The Townhouse contributed to a most enjoyable short break. We received a warm welcome on arrival and found our room excellent. We had paid a small surcharge for a Superior Room and it was well the extra. The room was freshly decorated, very spacious with a settee, armchair and coffee table. The bed was large and very comfortable.

The en-suite was large and had recently been refurbished. Bath and separate shower. All the linen and towels were top quality.

We had pre-booked a table for dinner which was fortunate since the Restaurant was full with other residents and some local people in for Dinner. The menu was varied and the food excellent, as it was at Breakfast as well.

The Townhouse is an excellent choice for a hotel in the Melrose area.

No Chance To Get A Feel For The Hotel
We stayed at the hotel Saturday 5th December for one night.

I marked on the booking that it for my wifes birthday.

Upon arrival, we were checked in promptly. However no nice touches in the room for my wifes birthday or even a mention of it.

The room was acceptable, if a little DIY on the decorating - not as neat as it could have been.

The weather was awful, and after a walk around Melrose, we had to go to Burts Hotel over the road as The Townhouse Bar hotel was not open.

We were unable to eat at The Townhouse as it was fully booked with Christmas parties, so we ate at Burts Hotel - which was amazing food.

Our only experience was breakfast the following morning which was good. Although the staff were not 100%; we had to ask for toast with our breakfast and when asking for brown sauce, we got BBQ sauce.

When checking out, we were asked if we had a good stay - we said yes, but it was mainly down to other establishments in Melrose rather than The Townhouse.

Bit disappointed really, the personal service you expect from a small hotel just wasn't there.

Highly Recommended Hotel In Melrose
We enjoyed a very agreeable visit to the Townhouse in April 2015. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was immaculate, comfortable and clean. The evening meal was superb.

The only surprising & disappointing aspect of our stay was that breakfast on Sunday was not served until 0900. Given teh outdoor activities on offer in teh area it is not unreasonable to expect establishments like this to offer full cooked breakfasts from 0800 hrs. Although the staff were very helpful in rustling up a continental breakfast (which was very tasty) it would have been nice to have started the day with something cooked. There was no mention of late Sunday breakfast service on the website or at point of booking. Despite this short coming we would highly recommend a stay at the Townhouse in the beautiful town of Melrose.

Nice Place For A Short Stay
We stayed for one night at this hotel in a very spacious and comfortable room. We had a good evening meal in the Brasserie served by polite, efficient waitresses. Breakfast was OK but in no way special.

Unfortunately our last impression of the hotel was a negative one because of the dour attitude of the male member of staff we saw at check out. He took our payment but made no attempt at conversation or even common courtesies such as - 'Was everything OK for you?' 'Did you enjoy your stay?' 'Hope to see you again.' Not a great way to treat customers or to encourage repeat business.

More Than I Expected
Stayed for 2 nights and I was pleasantly surprised.The room was very spacious and spotless as was the shower room.We dined at the sister hotel across the road on the first night and after a blip with the starters (which was sorted out by the very efficient waitress) we enjoyed the meal very much,the meal in the Townhouse the next night was also very good as were the waiting staff,I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

The Townhouse is as good as some 4 star hotels I have stayed in and in some aspects ..better. The staff were friendly,welcoming and very helpful, they accommodated my wheat intolerance and offered advice on menu choices and gluten free rolls.When we asked about bus routes we were given a print out of the buses we would need,they gave the impression that it was important they did a good don't always get this level of service

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your hotel.The staff were very friendly without being intrusive, our room was very comfortable and the decor attractive.Finally, the quality of the food both in the Brasserie and at breakfast was of a very high standard. We will certainly return when next in the area.

The Townhouse Hotel
We stayed one night (Sat) and had dinner. The staff were very friendly and professional but not intrusive. The room was spacious and comfortable and, considering how cold the weather was, the room and hotel were lovely and warm. We had dinner and breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed both. We will definitely stay again.

Thank you for your hospitality, 5***** !

This is surely one of the best small hotels in Scotland -- beautiful rooms, generous service, and extremely good food. I highly recommend this hotel.
