For more than 35 years Burts has been owned by Graham and Anne Henderson, whose friendly personal attention has built the hotel's excellent reputation.
Now joined by their son Nicholas and his wife Trish, the family provides each guest with every modern comfort and the ultimate in service.
Set in Melrose's picturesque 18th century Market Square, Burts was built in 1722 as a comfortable home for a local dignitary and still reflects much of the period charm of that time. A listed building due to it architectural significance, Burts has been carefully extended and modified to offer all you would expect of a first class hotel.
Relaxing and comfortable surroundings, the finest food and traditional Scottish Borders hospitality combine to make Burts Hotel the perfect base for a peaceful break. Having discovered its charm, visitors return year after year to this comforting home from home - to fish or to walk, to play golf, or simply to delight in the season's reflection in our menu with its abundance of local game and fresh fish. There is nothing more satisfying than relaxing in front of our log fire in Winter, sampling one of the 90 single malt whiskies on offer.
