What's not to like - comfortable room with all your needs met - genuine hospitality - and home cooking treats for breakfast! Loved visiting with the family - they work as a well oiled machine as we say in Texas when everything just goes right! Wish I could have stayed longer.

This is our third stay in over 10yrs and happy to say that Dunfermline House is as friendly and of high standard as the previous times. It's been a few years since our last visit and we took my mother too for two nights. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were fresh, nicely decorated and comfortable with extras...

I and a friend stayed here for one night in May at the start of our walking holiday. The owners couldn't have been friendlier and we had the best breakfast of the entire trip. Comfy beds and a good en-suite bathroom too. An excellent start to our holiday. I'd certainly go back.

Alison and Bryan were the perfect hosts on my extended stay at Dunfermline House. Having travelled from Australia, it was like a home away from home!! Could not recommend their guesthouse and their hospitality highly enough and will most certainly look to stay here again on future trips to this beautiful part of the world! Keep doing what you're doing...

A warm, welcoming place to stay in Melrose. The hosts are kind and friendly and just do what ever they can to help. The location is super, the breakfast was excellent and filling. My wife and I will stay there again when we return to Melrose. Thank you.

I stayed at the Dunfermline House for three nights in August. I can only describe my experience as unpleasant and hurtful. I stayed in the double room which had a lovely view. Nice sized bathroom with a good powered shower but that's about where it stops. Bryan was polite, helpful and friendly, a pleasure to converse with while being served...

Lovely rooms overlooking the Eildon Hills, an amazing breakfast with fresh fruit and a variety of other choices, and on top of that the warmth of Alison and Bryan to make it complete! What else could you ask for? We stayed with Alison and Bryan in Hawick some years ago, and this was just as nice. Missed the bagpipe wake...
