 Nice site just in town centre so good links for whole area.

Toilet / shower blocks usual good quality.

Friendly staff on arrival. Nice big pitches.

Did a good walk up the Eildon hills and over to Dryburgh and got a bus back.

Paid £91 for 3 nights inc EHU.

 Having seen queues at the entrance in the past, we arrived early afternoon; the manager was welcoming and pointed out the few pitches that were available for us to choose from, we took one that was well screened by a tall hedge.

It's best to pay for a pitch "with awning" even if you're not going to use it, as the "no awning" pitches are less appealing - like a tarmac car park. Little benefit to paying for a Serviced pitch as the site is so small that fresh water and grey disposal points are very close to all the pitches.

I see reviews criticising the toilets & showers, but they were spotless and we were thankful that they only closed for 30 minutes for cleaning.

The site is noisy until late (though not in an unpleasant way), as it's next door to floodlit tennis courts and rugby pitches. The on-site dog walk is tiny, plenty of walks by the river and farther afield; the King's Arms allows dogs.

It was eye wateringly expensive at a weekend, even as CAMC members, but there are no other sites in the area, and Melrose has much to offer. Trimontium Museum is interesting. Buses go to Galashiels (for the Great Tapestry of Scotland), Selkirk, Hawick (quality woollen mills), Kelso (Floors castle) etc. Worth taking the Waverley Line train from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, it's a very scenic route.

 This is a small level site right on the edge of the town centre, so some of the pitches are right up against some houses. Most of the HS pitches have a small strip of grass between the pitches and at the back.

Unfortunately we were given a pitch that was on tarmac and had no adjacent grass, so it felt a bit bleak and like a car park. It was fine for 2 nights, but I would not have wanted to stay any longer.

The toilet block was kept clean and tidy and the staff were very welcoming.

Melrose is a very pretty town with many places to eat, a small Co-op right next to the site and lots of independent craft and art galleries.

Heading up and out of town finds you on the Eildon Hills very quickly - the ascent is quick and steep but the views are worth it.

Melrose seems to have many signposted walks, including the St Cuthbertís Way

 Nice Town. Peaceful site in central location.

Stayed here a couple of times. Nice walks along Tweed for dogs.

Well run site with roomy pitches. Showers hot and roomy enough.

For tv access you need a cable to attach.

Pricy if not a caravan club member, but in December, when I visit itís the only camp open in its area

 As per previous reviews, excellent site - for us the main attraction being it's in the middle of town.

Some lovely shops and eateries as well as fabulous walks, several of which start in the village.

The loos and showers are typical CAMC standard, always clean, warm and never any queues.

As site is always full seemed strange that a full section of 'blue' non awning pitches not in use behind reception as well as 2 at the opposite end of site.

 Excellent, well run site.

In middle of lovely town. Plenty of shops, eating places and hotels are an excellent standard.

Plenty of interesting walks from site.

Please stop kids cycling around sites. Regular bus service from town and rail facility close by.

Toilets are tired and badly in need of upgrade.

Well worth a visit.

 Well kept and managed site. Showers could do with a bit of an upgrade but toilets spotless.

Site is Situated in middle of town with easy walking access to all facilities.

Baird butchers is first class and hotel meals are all on a par.

Bruceís heart interred in grounds of Abbey, solemn place.

Regular bus service going past site and lots of walks from site as well.

Perfect destination for relaxing break and highly recommended.

 Stayed here before 2yrs ago,

Lovely location very clean & tidy, No need for public transport its 2min walk into town,

Good TV reception,

Its pricey at £38. 40 that's £10 more than 2yrs ago & no age concession given!

Been touring Scotland for 2 weeks and stayed on better sites and paid £25 on average,

Wont stay again only because of the cost.

 It was our first visit to Melrose CAMC and we were blown away by it.

The location is superb as Melrose is a beautiful border town with lots of great dog friendly pubs and individual shops.

The new Co-op next door is incredibly handy. There is also a mobile post office in the Co-op car park.

We loved exploring the town streets and visiting the pubs and cafes. We had lovely meals and snacks in The Kings Arms, The George and Abbotsford, Abbey Wines and The Rose Cottage.

There are lovely walks along the River Tweed. Unfortunately we only stayed for 2 nights but will definitely stay for longer next time. Wardens are very helpful.

Everyone we met was absolutely charming. One of our top 5 sites now. This site ticks many boxes.

 Site is very well located in the middle of town - as expected this does mean it is not as peaceful as some sites.

Some of the pitches on site were overlooked by houses whilst some on the other side were next to sports facilities with flood lights ablaze on an evening.

It is also quite a small site and there appeared to be a scramble to get the best pitch !

The town itself is pleasant to walk around.

Heading up and out of town finds you on the Eildon Hills very quickly - the ascent is quick and steep but the views are worth it !
