It would be hard to find a better hotel location than this in Melrose, with its sister hotel, Burts, just across the road, minutes from the Abbey and Abbotsford. We booked here instead of Burts because of me having a few mobility problems and needing a walk-in shower, which was unavailable at that time. So, the room was disappointingly small with not enough space for our luggage; if I'd been more mobile i would have booked a larger room. The hotel seemed to be suffering staffing shortages as everything seemed to take a long time to happen, but the staff who were there were extremely friendly. Both the Townhouse and Burts suffer from a real bar vibe - they both cater more for people who want to eat rather than have a drink beforehand, but at least the Townhouse has a very pleasant conservatory. The restaurant is a more formal affair, the brasserie more casual and all the better for it though the menu is the same for both. My favourite meal was the trio of lamb cutlets (totally succulent!) preceded by fishcakes, and I finally got to sample cullen skink which was great.…
Okay. Sadly not what it once was. We stayed in 2014 and remembered it as boutiquey and a little quirky and inexpensive. This time round a 'superior' room. Nice and big but felt a little cheap. Large crack across the ceiling. Electric shower. Quite a few things like that. We arrived mid afternoon and the main reception areas smelt strongly of fish. Same the next morning when we came out of our room. Made us think we definitely don't want the fish. The evening meal was ok. Except one of us had the vegetarian meal and it was tasteless. Left most of it. The nightly cost is pretending to be something that the hotel isn't
My wife and I recently stayed at this hotel. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated with an exceptionally comfortable bed. We had our evening meal in the restaurant and the food was exceptional. All the staff are friendly and very helpful. I would strongly recommend a stay at this hotel.
We’ve just spent three nights in this lovely hotel. Our superior room - room 1 - was really very good, with everything we needed and plenty of space and storage space. It was kept very clean and tidy throughout our stay. The food was excellent, with a great selection on both the breakfast and dinner menus. The icing on the cake was the staff - every single one of them was brilliant! Friendly, welcoming, professional and efficient. They are all a real credit to the hotel. One small criticism is the lack of choice in the bar. Understandable, though, given the restrictions of space. However, it didn’t in any way spoil our stay because the sister hotel across the square - Burt’s - has an excellent range available in their bar. All in all, an excellent short break in the lovely Melrose.…
We booked a superior double and were given Room #1. Arriving after the tourists have left for the day, we had no problem finding parking right in front of the hotel. Our greeting upon arrival was friendly and welcoming. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was two singles pushed together with a crack. We believe they were good mattresses just not even to sleep on and the crack was too big possibly due to the mattresses not being worn equally. What I’m saying is, it was not a comfortable bed to sleep together on. New mattresses are an easy fix though or maybe a thick mattress cover would solve the issue. The bathroom had a stand alone shower and large bathtub. There was lots of hot water and it was a power shower. There was no room safe but it was no problem. We enjoyed 3 nights and were able to tour the area. The breakfast is from a menu and it was very good. There was a fresh fruit bowl offered, eggs, porridge etc. I have to comment on their sister property, Burt’s Hotel (across the street) which has an amazing restaurant. We dined all three nights in the lounge/pub of Burt’s Hotel and still talk about our dinners. Overall we had a very good stay at The Townhouse in Melrose and we were very happy with our choice.…
The evening meal was lovely. My wife had a duo of lamb and I had the chicken. Both cooked to perfection. Service was excellent, with a good choice of wine to accompany the food. Puddings were nice - sticky date pudding and peach parfait. We would highly recommend. reasonable price for excellent food.
I can’t fault the hotel for comfort and location. (we did have to ask for another set of towels as only one was provided - but that was a simple oversight) Plus points were a great view overlooking square, nice en suite, comfortable bed. But the breakfast just didn’t match up. It was poor. The portion size was small, the meat items were of a very basic quality, the bread used for toast was the cheapest white bread going, and the poached egg was overdone and had the markings of the clingfilm on it, which is really off-putting. It was so disappointing - part of the joy of a hotel stay is the breakfast and this did not deliver any of that joy at all. I’ve had better breakfast in a greasy spoon, or a basic B&B for much less. It would stop me making a return visit.
Called here for lunch Friendly welcome Prosecco and olives to start great menu choice we ordered asparagus with orange and smoked salmon both delicious main cod fillet and Childs breaded haddock Could not fault this Chef is just superb Would totally recommend
We travelled as a couch group, and decided to have lunch here, what a great decision that was. the food was totally fantastic, the staff polite helpful, and friendly.... i would highly recommend this Hotel, and would not hesitate to return
Booked two rooms for two nights with friends to see the Great Tapestry of Scotland in its permanent home in Galashiels and have some chilling out time in the Borders. Check in was slick and professional. The decor throughout the hotel was great, modern and clean yet sympathetic to the age and style of he building. The rooms were the same, every part of the hotel looked as if it had been redecorated and recarpeted fairly recently. Our room (8) was excellent with views over the main street and up to the square. The room was spotless and the bed was massive and comfy. The room contained all the facilities you might need. We never had the TV on, but anyone who wanted to watch it might appreciate one a little bigger. The location of this hotel is great, just yards from the very centre of the town and within easy walking distance of all the shops and other attractions. We also appreciated the bus stop just across the road as we taking advantage of our buspasses to get to and from Galashiels and Tweedbank. We didn't have dinner in the hotel but the breafasts were great with plenty of choice and good service and food quality. All the staff that dealt with us were excellent. Overall, thought the Townhouse was excellent and would return and recommend it to others.…
