During a recent business trip to Melrose we stayed at the George and Abbotsford hotel for 5 nights.
The hotel has a quint old world quality feel to it.
The room we were in was light and airy and the bed comfortable and plenty of good quality towels. It was a refreshing change to have really good quality sheets on the bed.
The full English breakfast was all that you would want.
The staff were friendly, efficient and a great sense of humour.
Meals that we had in the evening were varied, well cooked, flavoursome and very reasonably priced. The specials were defiantly worth a look.
It made a refreshing change to find a hotel that has such a strong emphasis on locally sourced, quality, home cooked food and at a reasonable price.
We recommend to you try the chocolate and ginger ice cream. Wish I could have taken some home with us.
Large private car park at the rear of the hotel was really handy.
The current owners have only recently taken over the hotel, a couple of months ago, and are carrying out various renovation works. The main thing for us was that the new owners really care about what they are doing.
We really wish the new owner all the very best for the future. In our opinion so far, they are doing everything just right and we would certainly love to stay with you again.
Would we recommend the George and Abbotsford hotel? I think that we just have.
