We found the Townhouse on Tripadvisor. The reviews were good and we were heading out into the Borders taking in Melrose and Peebles for a weekend away from the city. We called ahead and booked one superior double room for the following night.
We had been told that there was no parking at the hotel – only limited on-street parking but the owner informed us of available parking at their neighbouring hotel (across the street).
Check-in was fast and efficient – it’s a small hotel and feels more like a large grand house. At 3 stars we had expected it to be a ‘local’ guest house of good standards but we weren’t expecting our room to be so large, plush and modern. The elegant decor was more in keeping with 5 star Malmaison and the large bathroom had a large shower and huge corner bath.
We ate in the hotel that evening as the weather was terrible and, as we were (initially) the only diners, we were seated in the bay window with a view onto the Friday night comings-and-goings of village life in Melrose. However, this took second place to the excellent food. Mouth-watering and filling it was comparable to the best restaurants the city has to offer.
The bed was comfy and the room was very quiet. Breakfast was also very good – full Scottish of course – and we set off for Peebles (in the falling snow) with full stomachs, happy memories and the knowledge that we’d definitely be back......
