Score from 62 reviews Superb
location is good.
booked because it was valentines weekend, swimming pool and Jacuzzi was out of order , with no prior notice. A wedding taking place got the staffs full attention. We was sat waiting for a drink with our meal for the full duration of the meal. After the third reminder of still not receiving the drinks, we finally got them when we had finished and was ready to leave.
Friendly, welcoming staff. Excellent menu and fantastic food from the Bistro. Bonus that we could take our dogs into the dining area. Lovely, well kept grounds to walk dogs. Beautiful setting, very peaceful. Loved it!
My wife is coeliac ie gluten free and nothing was a problem for her food, the staff were well up on coeliac needs, so much so I am going to recommend the Dryburgh hotel to Coeliac uk.We enjoyed it so much we are going back in June. Jean Bouch and Dennis Bell
Old fashioned country house
The hotel is NOT in Melrose so please update your page.It is over 20 mins in a cab costing £20 one way to the bus station.
Setting was fantastic and look forward to our return, also how well our complaint was dealt with.
Very dissapointed with the service we received before during and after our meal of which has been discussed with the duty manager who has given us a voucher to return.
Everything was perfect about the place
Not nice sitting in a wedding party
Nice friendly welcome, lovely staff
Wifi proved impossible to connect
Beautiful setting right on the River Tweed and excellent food, reception staff were excellent.
We arrived late and a wedding party were crowded smoking outside the entrance which felt like we were crashing somebody else's party. Restaurant was really pushed because of this but excellent staff were very apologetic. We didn't use the bar and facilities because the wedding basically took the space over. Unfortunately our room was above the entrance so we had to put up with drunken conversation from the smokers in the party late into the night, not a great Valentine's Day!
Superb location...very quiet and peaceful
The building is magnificent, however the decor of the rooms is a little 'tired' and in need of some refurbishment
Cosy lounge, the best G & Ts ever, food lovely, especially the haddock and chips and game casserole. Great place to take dog, lots of fabulous walks in beautiful surroundings. Staff couldn't have been more helpful .
Paid extra for Abbey view room at front, worth it for size and outlook.
Radiator in room not very hot whilst other clients said their rooms could get too warm . Could have been TRV. they are not reliable. Otherwise we were very satisfied with every thing.
The staff were excellent and very helpful. The breakfast was very good with a wide choice.
We had to ask for a change of room when we arrived as the room we were allocated was very cold and bath was stained.The second room was also not up to standard but we didn't complain again, - for example tops of the taps in the bathroom missing, cracks around the washbasin, very poor shower pressure. It is obvious that the rooms need some work to bring them up to scratch.
Staff couldn't have been nicer. Location was lovely.
Food very average and uninspired. The bedrooms were very run down and grubby.

The staff were so helpful - nothing was too much trouble for them. The hotel itself is a lovely building, our room was spacious and very comfortable with a good large bathroom. It was really good to be able to sit in lounge with our dogs and also to eat in bistro with them too. The bonus swimming pool is not modern but fine. Please don't stay in this lovely hotel and write bad reviews if you like the Holiday Inn!
Nothing. Apart from guests with dogs who do not clean up after their dogs. They give dog owners a bad name! The hotel kindly provide poo bags and bins. What more can they do!
Food was excellent quality and so was the service.
Wanted to use hotels free bicycle hire but none of the bikes were fit to use. Changing & showering facilities at the pool was poor.
The stay was excellent :)
retains it's old world charm fantastic breakfast wonderful views of the river next to the Abbey, history friendly, not austere country feel relaxed and relaxing
Scenery and staff
Staff were generally friendly - particularly in the restaurant. A nice setting / location.
Furniture quality , bedroom cleanliness was limited in areas, swimming pool was unacceptable by anyones standards
Enjoyed my stay. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Hotel was old worldly and the fire warm and restful. Bedroom was cold though. Food was of a high standard and both chef and staff met any requirement and request. Had a great time. Swam and totally chilled outside of work.
Nothing other than the bedroom being cold. However once in bed really cosy
Positives were location, the staff, great wifi and fantastic food.
Room was dated, tiny television , and cold.
The staff outstandingly friendly and courteous. Restaurant was really good
There wasnt anything to not like.
The reception staff were very friendly , rooms were comfortable and the location was idyllic. food was excellent
Bar staff staff seemed to lack knowledge of prices for drinks every time and disappointed with range of alcohol on offer no Guinness, no magners or Bulmers non flavoured cider. Restaurant staff lacked customer service even though only 8 people in for dinner. Food portions very poor for the cost Al a Carte not for everyone
