It was a dreadful wet and windy day, very cold, with icy rain. So we decided to go out for lunch. First impressions excellent, with a log fire blazing in the bar - no gas coal effect here but a real fire and it created such a warm welcome, reinforced by our Polish waitress - friendly and smiling and could...

Just home from a very relaxing weekend break at Burt's. Great hotel, and great staff - couldn't do enough for us during our stay. Room was spotless, very comfortable bed plus the food both in the restaurant and bar was excellent - highly recommend and will definitely go back. Right in the centre of Melrose it is perfectly situated for...

We could park easily and were quickly registered with the very personable owner. We had to climb two flights of stairs to our room but when we got there, it was modern, clean and comfortable. No issues there at all. Breakfast good too. Staff were efficient and welcoming throughout. We were attending an evening function in the hotel. The meal...

Had a family gathering for our Aunts 80th Birthday. We had the small private dining room which was perfect. Lovely room, wonderful set table, staff very attentive, food fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

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...
