We regularly,travel to Edinburgh but this was the first time we'd stayed in Melrose, what a good decision it was to choose the Townhouse - a nice small town and a very nice hotel. We had a very nice room ( but from what we could see when the cleaners were about the others were very nice too ) with...

Choosing The Townhouse for a charity awareness and fundraising dinner was a great success. James and Louise could not have been more helpful from menu planning, to seating arrangements and last minute alterations to numbers and dietary preferences. The meal for nearly 70 guests was superbly cooked and served by very pleasant waiting staff. In every respect this was an...

We visited Melrose today and thought this hotel looked more pub grub from the outside. To be fair we should have read the signs more carefully.

We went to the townhouse for a meal last night after several recommendations. It is a beautiful building with lots of character, having browsed through the menu online we were very much looking forward to the evening. A very pleasant welcome from what I can assume was the owner/ Manager. We were early having booked but were not in anyway...

Just a great place for lunch with an interesting menu and excellent quality food. A lovely restaurant with charming staff, so you are guaranteed a warm welcome and attentive service. It is our "default" restaurant in the Borders. The standard never slips!

We booked in for dinner and whilst the restaurant was quiet and lacking in atmosphere, the food more than made up for it. We both went for fish and the sea bream and the place dishes were beautiful and tasty. Service was friendly and efficient. Desserts were tempting and delivered the goods. Definitely worth a visit.

We booked in advance to ensure that we could get in. Took friends as we had been before and recommended the lunch menu. It was the best experience and the highlight of our holiday. Staff, food and surroundings are exceptional

Had a lovely meal out in Melrose at the Townhouse Hotel. Varied menu, tasty freshly cooked food, good service. I can recommend the Cullin Skink. All our party of 8 enjoyed the food. One of our party was vegan and was impressed with the choice of appropriate dishes particularly the sorbet for pudding.
