Spent 3 nights in twin room en suite on first floor . Spectacular breakfasts , excellent room , big shower . On street parking just outside . Great hostess . I believe the owners have a dog but the dog was kept away from the areas used by guests . Thoroughly recommend

Great B&B which I've stayed at on two occasions over the years due to it being dog friendly, being in a great location, offering really good value for money and serving up a tremendous breakfast. Definitely recommended!

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.

Stayed in this beautiful little B&B for one night to attend a wedding. The staff were excellent, especially Helen.

I would definitely recommend this lovely B&B for anyone looking...

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...
