we were charged £10 per night (tot £30 for 3 nights stay) for our small dog instead of the 10£ per stay declared on the Groupon voucher. Considering the Groupon offer, we had a good price for the room, breakfast and dinner. It's just unfortunate that we were charged more than we were supposed to pay for the dog.

We have just returned from a dinner, bed and breakfast break for which we ONLY paid £69 (total) for the two of us, on a Groupon deal. We chose Melrose as it used to be a favourite spot to take our caravan, and we were not disappointed with the village today, as everyone was so friendly. On checking in we...

Got a groupon voucher for a meal for 2 people. The red wine was freezing cold to start off with.

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
