“Lunch for Five”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Have visited here often over the past few years and the pub lunch menu has always had a great selection of dishes. We have never had a bad meal and enjoyed our experience very much. Friendly staff, shame you don't hear a local accent ! Log fire was burning and the room is cozy. As a wheelchair user my only moan is the lack of a disabled loo.

Spent overnight here, dinner and breakfast as well. The dinner meal was fabulous - do NOT miss dessert! The staff were very friendly and professional. Room was very comfortable. Would definitely stay again when in the Borders.

Have never stayed but have eaten here on many occassions when visiting family nearby & am never disappointed. They have a good menu with meat supplied by an excellent local butcher,other locally sourced produce & a menu that combines lots of things that one misses when one no longer lives in Scotland (try the chicken stuffed with haggis if it's on the menu....yumm!!) The chef is consistantly good & the desserts always look amazing......although I can never manage on, my son tells me thay taste as good as they look;so good we never even get to taste!!Try the triple chocolate terrine!!Every time we go to eat in the bar (lunchtimes) it is very busy so would advise booking.Restaurant also excellent .Good service & I think very reasonable.

My idea of the perfect accommodation is one that has (in no particular order) a great bed and linens, a roomy bathroom with very strong water pressure in the shower, and superb food. It is an added bonus if the staff are professional, gracious and helpful. Burt's has it all, and more (e.g., a cozy fire in the lounge/bar and beautiful appointments throughout the hotel). My partner and I just returned from a three-night stay at Burt's on the bed, breakfast and dinner offer, and what a TOTAL bargain that is for the quality of the accommodation and food. We have dined in lovely restaurants all over the world, and I don't think we've had better food anywhere. The fish was so fresh and beautifully prepared that we both had fish for all three dinners and I ate fish for breakfast as well! (smoked haddock and kippers) But the menu choices also included venison and pheasant as well as beef steaks, lamb and chicken. The desserts were heavenly and the house wines are also quite good. The room was very inviting and the bed and beddings were luxurious and comfortable. All this is topped off with professional service in all stations, from reception to restaurant staff. I didn't want to leave. It was just too perfect.

A cold and wet evening outside but certainly not inside the very cosy bar at Burt's Hotel with its welcoming coal fire and extremely friendly and efficient staff. Our fish was just delicious and the House Claret most enjoyable - all at a very reasonable price indeed! Looking forward to our next visit to Melrose and Burt's Hotel.

We stayed at Burt's for three nights with the dinner,bed and breakfast offer. We had a lovely time and so did our dog Charlie! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful and beautifully presented. Due to our dog ,Charlie, we were unable to book one of the refurbished rooms
( which we totally understand and knew beforehand) , however, our room was clean and comfortable and we were very happy with it.
A lovely relaxing stay at a very friendly hotel. Thank you.

Myself and a friend dined at Burts Hotel on the evening of Saturday 8th February. We felt lucky to have found anywhere to eat at short notice let alone somewhere we could take our dog. Being vegetarian we get used to the usual token (boring) veggie options of mushroom stroganoff or pasta bake. Imagine our delight to find the option of vegetarian haggis, wrapped in filo parcels, beautifully presented with an imaginative selection of tasty vegetables. The meal was delicious and my only slight criticism would be that at £17.25 the cheapest bottle of wine was a bit expensive. Had there been a reasonably priced house wine I would have had no hesitation in giving this review an 'excellent'. The staff were friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was relaxed.
