We always stay at this b& b when we visit the Scottish Borders. So very friendly, clean and the breakfast was very good with a great choice of foods. The room was very good with everything we needed. It was very warm and cosy.

This B&B is tucked away off the Main Street but with car parking opposite. The room was large airy and quiet. The owners are very welcoming and you have Melrose abbey and the Eildon hills in easy walking distance. The Eildon hills give superb views but you'll need walking gear and a sure foot. Breakfast can be a full Scottish... More

Our room was lovely with a range of hot drinks along with our kettle. The bathroom was cosy and the shower perfect. Our hosts were friendly and the morning banter while being served... More

This is a really excellent place to stay in Melrose. We spent 3 nights there whilst we were beginning the St Cuthbert's Way walk. Dunfermline House is a lovely, family-run B&B perfectly positioned opposite the Abbey. The rooms were spotless, comfortable with very good (free) wifi. Breakfasts were outstanding and the couple who run it could not be more obliging... More

We had a twin room, whilst small it was perfectly formed, clean, looked recently decorated and well equipped. The tea and coffee tray had lots of choice, the en-suite shower room had a... More

We stayed here at the start of our St Cuthbert's way walk, a convenient location. It's opposite Melrose Abbey and close to the main street. Our room was comfortable and clean and the breakfast excellent.
