We were here last August and stayed again this April. Main reason for my leaving another review so soon is just for an update of places to eat.

Last time we were unable to find a place where we could get both grandaughter and our dog.

We nipped in to the local petshop/groomers to get something for our dog and got chatting to the owner and he told us that the Station Hotel has a small room just off the bar where you could get children and dogs.

So went and had a look and had a chat with a very helpful lady who confirmed it would not be a problem.

We went the next night and have to say it was excellent.

The food was good and quite large portions with a children's menu as well, staff made us very welcome.

Price wise we paid 29 for two adult mains, one childs menu 3 course meal with drink, One pint of lager and a diet coke.

My wife and I could not manage a sweet as after main meal portions we were stuffed.

Site was as good as always but it poured for our 3 days but still enjoyed our break.

Little site in the centre of Melrose so handy for shops, pubs, walks etc. Dishwashing area and toilets as clean as you expect from the Caravan Club. The owners were nice and the site ideal, great for tents as well as vans. Tent area closed during our visit but level and spacious. Good choice of eateries and half a dozen places to get a pint. All in all would recommend a visit.

Melrose Gibson Park is a nice site in a great location for the town. The facilities are really clean, tidy and warm.

This site is not typical to the type of site that we like. Despite this it is a friendly site with a nice little dog walk and friendly wardens. ( this is their first contract as wardens )

Melrose itself has some nice shops and nice restaurants. We went for dinner to Burts Hotel which had great food and allowed us to take our dogs.

I would recommend this site to anyone wishing to visit the area.

We have just returned from a week end at this gem of a site. It was very clean & tidy & the pitches were a good size. I had read the reviews before booking & have to agree that is perfectly situated to visit the local shops & Melrose Abbey, although we did not use it, the bus service to surrounding areas seems to be very efficient, allowing you to explore further afield. Everyone we met be it on site or shop assistants were so very friendly. The review I read before booking was spot on when he said that Melrose caters very well for Coeliacs ( gluten free )The Kings arms made me a lovely GF meal, I would certainly recommend them. Also the small baker shop called ' Maid by Marion ' has GF cakes & can also make them to order if staying longer. There was a butcher that supplied GF as well. We will definitely return to this site & will recommend it to friends & family.

Not a lot to add to the previous reviews.

Its been a few years since our last visit to Gibson Park and not a lot has changed, still as good as ever.

Everything is kept tidy and usable, toilets are spotless. Didn't need to queue for showers and site was full but still quiet if that makes sense.

Melrose is a great wee town, shops, bars and restaurants all you need and as mentioned in another post a very good butchers just past the garage.

Have to say the geordie couple (wardens/stand-in not sure) who were round cleaning the exterior of the hookup points were a font of knowledge about Melrose and very nice to speak to. A big thanks to them.

We had our 6yr old grandaughter with us this trip and she enjoyed the large playpark just to the right of the park entrance.

We just love this site and the town/area.

Further afield you have Galashiels, Hawick, Jedburgh etc all have something to offer.

Just back from a long weekend here and absolutely loved it. Very clean site, really peaceful, park next door for the kids, shops a short walk away, and the brilliant weather made it really special.

The shower blocks were spotless, and the wardens are lovely, really helpful and friendly.

I cant praise Gibson park enough, its a cracking site in a stunning location and a credit to the club and the wardens.

Cant wait to go back.
