    From the moment we arrived to be greeted by the most friendly welcome we enjoyed the most wonderful stay at Bowden House in every way. In fact we would consider going to Melrose again just to stay at Bowden House. The most beautiful view from our bedroom in a charming property.

    Great location for touring the area. Wonderful spacious room and to order breakfast each morning. Tea on the patio when we arrived and loved the view.

    The property is quite, comfortable and with superb view. The hosts, Uta and Jason are extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing was too hard for them to do for us. Great suggestions for restaurants. Would stay there any time and we would come back!

    Bowden House B&B is a hidden gem, in a beautiful situation with marvellous views. Uta was very welcoming and helpful, a lovely, warm hostess who went out of her way to make our stay relaxed and comfortable. The room and bathroom (brand new) were immaculate and the 19th century house absolutely charming. The weather was warm so we were fortunate to have a delicious breakfast on the terrace. The best place we have stayed and we are keen to return!
