A first foray into the southern reaches of the old country and a salutary experience it was. The reception in any hotel creates the first impression and sets the tone. And so it was here. Nobody at home for approximately twenty minutes as we tried in vain to check in. Search parties failed to locate a single member of staff and my girlfriend resorted to phoning reception on her mobile!! Even this failed. Add to this depressing decor, over-cooked breakfast and the inability even to issue a receipt on check-out and you get the picture. This is a conveyor-belt, tour-company hotel processing large numbers of elderly guests on an industrial scale and wasn't a pleasant experience. You have been warned!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The stately looking Waverley Castle Hotel, situated one mile outside the town of Melrose, is set splendidly in five acres of rolling parkland at the heart of the Scottish Borders. Nestling between the River Tweed and the Eildon Hills, it is a stunning building boasting stunning views. Guests can happily relax in the Eildon Restaurant and enjoy outstanding views out over the Eildon Hills. After dinner you can continue your evening in the welcoming bar and ballroom where you can dance the night away to our excellent evening entertainment. The area is perfect for those who like to get out and explore. There are several sightseeing walks to enjoy nearby including one along the River Tweed. Historical Edinburgh is easily accessible by car for a day trip and is well worth a visit for the castle, shops, architecture and much more. ... more less
