My husband and I stayed here for one night last week and really, really enjoyed our stay. We didn't have a reservation, and stopped in at several of the hotels in Melrose for pricing - this one immediately stood out from the rest!
The historical George and Abbotsford Hotel is full of character - plush carpets, heavy curtains and solid wood furnishings. In fact, entering the front door really feels like stepping back in time! The owners surprisingly upgraded us from a standard double room to the honeymoon suite, and wow were we glad that they did! Beautiful, spacious room with a four poster bed and lovely views of the surrounding neighborhood. Not only did we find the owners to be very kind and friendly, but also knowledgeable about the whole of Scotland. The lady provided lots of helpful info that we subsequently used on our drive through the country.
Have I mentioned the food yet? Yum! Great set dinner meal of fish and chips, and a yummy hearty breakfast.
All in all, a really great place full of history, character and friendliness!
