Good Hotel Guide Review
The whitewashed 18th-century building with its distinctive black window mouldings has long been a popular landmark of this pretty Borders town. Run by the Henderson family, Burt’s is popular with locals and visitors alike. Neat bedrooms are decorated in soothing shades with bright pops of colour and tweedy accents; each room has tea- and coffee-making facilities and Scottish toiletries. Dine either on bistro and lighter dishes in the bar, or smarter options, such as lamb rump with barley risotto and roast fennel, in the restaurant. A sustaining breakfast supports the next day’s activities: golfing, walking, fishing on the River Tweed, or exploring Melrose. The Hendersons also own The Townhouse opposite.
