Went for a meal with friends and were greeted with friendly staff. However the attitude changed when presented with a Groupon voucher which was given to us as a Christmas present by friends. Trading standards need to be informed about the " King Prawn" and Salmon Cocktail. These were not King Prawns. Ordered the Sirloin Steak and was charged for...

Stayed here and everyone was very welcoming and friendly. Had a great deal which included a 2 course dinner on the first night and breakfast on first morning. Very nice food, room was satisfactory but you can't expect the ritz when you've got a good cheap deal. Overall very happy :)

Extremely dissapointed after purchasing a voucher for afternoon tea. Shop bought hard scone, served with extremely unpleasant squirty cream, sandwiches which were nothing special, and shop bought traybakes. Certainly wouldn't recommend it and most definitely won't be back.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Room was ok could do with getting modernised. Breakfast was shocking 1/2 bit of black pudding. Seriously. The sausages were of very poor quality. Because of this we decided not to eat in the evenings. We did look at the menu but nothing really wowed us. Melrose is a lovely historical town Upon checkout we...

Spent 3 nights in this hotel, was the first and most definitely be the last. As it was a budget coach trip wasn't expecting the Ritz by any means. But was expecting the basics, one of them been heating. On our arrival the room was freezing and not at all welcoming. I think when they are expecting guests the could...

I have visited the George and Abbotsford on numerous occasions over the last 20 years, using the hotel as a base for lunch and the Melrose 7's rugby event, entertaining up to 40 corporate guests. When we visited last year, we had a great time, the staff were fantastic, food was good and everything went very smoothly, what a difference...

Very friendly and efficient staff. We enjoyed a lovely evening meal in the restaurant. Every meal is individually prepared and cooked and well presented. Very good value for money. Would definitely recommend and will come back next time we are here on holiday.

Good hotel based in the High street in Melrose with friendly staff. Just stayed for one night . Good basic hotel suitable to our needs. Clean but basic. Very popular bar with fantastic selection of whisky.

We bought a cheap deal for 3 nights b&b with one evening meal included. It seems to be a family run hotel and the staff were very hard working, pleasant and helpful so I am a bit sorry not to be able to write a more positive review. The bedroom and shower room were as small as it was possible...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a family run hotel we took over the hotel in Dec 12; we are under refurbishment at the moment to bring this good old B listed hotel back to its former glory. We have 32 en suite rooms. The rooms are warm, clean and we can offer a warm welcome. We have a lovely bear garden in the middle of the hotel. Families and dogs welcome. ... more   less
