The trouble I had was finding a hotel which could take our group first of all. The borders is full of cracking hotels often way dearer than this but with much less rooms - or much much more. There were lots of cheaper ones, but too small. I looked at places from Dunbar across to Peebles and down Eymouth before settling with these.
Burt's and The Townhouse are across the road from each other and together can manage us for both rooms and evening meals. Yes it's more expensive, but as I was running out of options and time that was the decision I took. However, there are other hotels and B&B's in Melrose. So why don't you take a look at those and get a room there - you're more than welcome to join us for dinner both nights and of course for the run too. That's was one of the reasons I picked Melrose as a base - options.
Just let me know where you will be staying if you do come and choose to stay somewhere else.
There will also probably be a run up north in the summer too, so if you can't manage this one, that might be an option.
Give me a shout if there's anything I can do.
