Reviewed 1 October 2013

I was with a party of friends. We were made to feel most welcome, the food (dinner and breakfast) was fantastic, the room comfortable, and it was very convenient for our golfing excursions during the day. James was a first rate host. I look forward to our return.

Room Tip: I had a quiet room at the back of the hotel, which suited me fine.

Spent a great few days here. Had a superior room which was airy and spacious. This had a comfortable bed and excellent decoration. The staff were very helpful and friendly but not intrusive. The breakfasts set you up for the day and my wife highly recommended the porridge. Our evening meals were imaginative and incredibly well cooked. The variety of the chef's specials was just right and the flavours were excellent. Many thanks to all for a great stay

We stayed overnight and found this to be a very comfortable, convenient and well run hotel. The breakfast was delicious and the staff very helpful. We can only say good things about every aspect of our stay. Would definitely recommend the Townhouse to other travellers.

My wife and I have driven through the Scottish Borders on a number of occasions and have never stayed in the area but as we wanted to visit Abbotsford House, which is only 3 miles away and well worth a visit, we thought of looking towards Melrose as a base. Having decided to try Melrose we, once again, trusted ourselves to comments made on Tripadvisor. The hotel that we settled upon was the Townhouse hotel in the market square and we were very pleased with the experience. Every member of staff was friendly and courteous and the well-appointed room was spotlessly clean. For our own reasons we chose to have our evening meals in the Brasserie rather than the main restaurant but weren’t disappointed in any way and there was certainly plenty of choice. The acid test that we always apply is ‘would we go back to this hotel’ and the answer is a most emphatic ‘yes’. It is difficult to imagine what it is that you may be looking for if you came away with a negative experience.

The Townhouse is ideally located on the main square in this charming Borders town. We got a very warm welcome from Elaine and went to room 10. The room was quiet (even though on the street side of the building), beautifully decorated, the bathroom spacious and all the fixtures clean, up to date and working.

Elaine arranged a late afternoon cup of tea for us in the conservatory. We had dinner in the dining room and were treated to a wide variety of Borders' treats…grilled darne of salmon (will we ever be able to have salmon anywhere else again?), shoulder and loin of lamb; great memories! The wine list was smallish, but offered a wide choice.

The Breakfast menu was extensive and the food well cooked and attractively presented. Table service was enthusiastic at dinner and in the morning.

We have just celebrated our Golden Wedding in "The Town House Hotel" Melrose along with 68 of our friends and family from as far as Abu Dhabi and Australia.
The food, service and welcome were outstanding, with our Australian friend stating that his vegetarian dish was the best he had tasted anywhere in the world!
The entire evening was discreetly supervised by our host James, who has to be congratulated on a superb evening enjoyed by all.

The Townhouse Hotel is located in the beautiful Melrose town square area with wonderful shops and just around the corner from Melrose Abby, which is a MUST VISIT site if you like to experience the history of Scotland. Our room was very comfortable with all the amenities we needed, including free WIFI and a hair dryer in the room. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and included both cold and hot items, the hot items were made to order and brought to your table by very attentive servers. The entire experience was very enjoyable, I happily recommend the Townhouse across the board.

Room Tip: There are only a few rooms available, and from what we saw pretty much all of them are great.
