Stayed two nights for dinner, bed and breakfast - extraordinary value, with extremely comfortable and well-appointed rooms, wonderful staff (particularly Anne) charming host Nick and truly five-star food! The hotel is really well situated with lots of interesting walks and places to go!

An excellent Hotel. Good accommodation. Excellent food and drink. Brilliant staff. Off-street parking. Five minutes from the main A7 through road. 40 mins by train to Edinburgh. Anyone who is visiting the Borders for whatever reason should stay at Burts - highly recommended.

We always pop into Burt's when we're in Melrose. The bar is very warm and welcoming, with comfortable chairs and real fires, and if we're in time for lunch, it's always first rate. The staff too are a delight - well trained, cheerful and efficient. For me, the only disappointment, is that you can't get served with food or drink...

We visited Melrose for lunch this week and tried Burt's Hotel. We were staying at Aikwood Tower (20 minutes away ). Melrose is a lovely village and Burt's was a great find. Warm and cozy atmosphere and the mushroom soup was to die to, as was the sticky toffee pudding. The attentative staff, particularly the vey pleasant Blond Girl behind...

A Thursday night in late October. Arrived just before 6. Place was very welcoming and dog was also allowed in. A big bonus as not many places welcome. Staff were friendly and professional. Food was very good and we were well impressed. Long time since been here and certainly not disappointed. Well done to all. K

Stay most years here. Breakfast is good but the real boon is dinner. They've really improved the fayre over the past few years and it means you don't have to move after a day on the river. Decent collection of whisky behind the bar and friendly staff. Good value for money.

A very special place with a unique feel. Cosy with all the warmth of a traditional style family run hotel. Loyal staff, with warm friendly and efficient service. Without exception everyone went the extra mile to make us feel special.

We were only able to stay one night at this wonderful, old-fashioned hotel and were very pleased with it's charm and amenities. Our room was spacious and overlooked the main street of Melrose, which was probably a mistake, only because the street noise and street light kept us up during the night, but I would recommend a room away from...
