Our Townhouse built in the mid 1800's offers an ideal place to stay whilst discovering the delights of Melrose .Situated only 100 meters from the Abbey and within a few minutes walk of excellent Restaurants and Pubs we are ideally positioned to offer walkers, cyclists, and tourists a warm welcome to the town. The building has been tastefully updated over time but purposefully allowed to retain all the charm and character of a house of its period. We are fully compliant with Covid 19 guidelines and continue to offer our guests a relaxed and welcoming time during their stay at Braidwood.

Location was great, very central in Melrose. The bed was comfy and room fine for my needs. Breakfast was plentiful with the usual cooked and other offerings. The hosts seemed to have all necessary Covid procedures in place while still managing to keep things comfortable. Would happily stay again.

I spent three nights at Braidwood Guest House whilst doing some training in Melrose. I was made to feel welcome and Mike and Helen were very helpful. My room was cosy with an extremely comfortable bed and it had everything I needed. The breakfast was substantial and kept me going for most of the day! Parking was easy right outside the guest house. I expect to be back again next year and will definitely book into Braidwood again.

Two friends and I stayed one night here before embarking on the St Cuthberts Way and couldn't have been more pleased with Braidwood B and B. Mike and Helen are very kind and hospitable hosts who provide an excellent, filling breakfast (including haggis!) and a very well presented and cosy room. I would thoroughly recommend a stay here. For the quality of the experience the prices were more than fair.

We first stayed in Melrose for the Borders Book Festival ten years ago and Braidwood was highly recommended. Since then we have stayed with Helen and Mike every year. They are friendly and helpful hosts. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the house is spotless. The breakfasts are outstanding.

We arrived in Melrose mid afternoon looking for tourist information office which no longer exists. We walked down first street from car park and saw Braidwood where our enquiry about a room was responded to positively and politely. Beautiful double ensuite with single bed in alcove. A good comfortable night was had. Very good and freshly cooked breakfasts were enjoyed. Highly recommended and good value.

We were walking St Cuthberts Way and had booked our B&B's through our Travel Agent and this B&B offered a very warm welcome and a perfect start to our week walking to Lindisfarne. We met up with some other walkers later in the week who started a day behind us and they also stayed here! Very nice place to explore the area from.
