Very good quality accommodation and excellent full Scottish breakfast. Owners were very friendly too. As we were cycling, there was room to safely store our bikes. Would recommend to anyone staying in Melrose.

I stayed here for one night in September prior to starting St Cuthbert's Way. The location is very good. Very close to Melrose Abbey, close to the start of St Cuthbert's Way and close to both the South Uplands Way and the Borders Abbeys Way. Braidwood is one street back from the main street with very easy access to the...

Stayed in this beautiful little B&B for one night to attend a wedding. The staff were excellent, especially Helen. She opened the kitchen 15 minutes early so I wouldn't leave without having breakfast because my train back was very early in the morning. The room was very clean and cozy. I would definitely recommend this lovely B&B for anyone looking...

We were on the third level under the eaves and low ceilings but still enjoyed our spacious room. The bathroom was a large space...

Melrose was my first stop on my first trip to Scotland, which was the first time I've traveled alone in another country as well. I'd chosen the Braidwood for my stay of two nights, 9 and 10 May 2016, based on its website, reviews, and calling the Braidwood from the States to make the booking, and I'm so happy I...

Our Townhouse built in the mid 1800's offers an ideal place to stay whilst discovering the delights of Melrose .Situated only 100 meters from the Abbey and within a few minutes walk of excellent Restaurants and Pubs we are ideally positioned to offer walkers, cyclists, and tourists a warm welcome to the town. The building has been tastefully updated over time but purposefully allowed to retain all the charm and character of a house of its period. ... more   less
