This charming guesthouse totally confounded our expectations - far beyond what you'd expect from a B&B. The rooms were spotless and luxurious, the breakfasts superb and the hot tub a highlight of the trip. The owners, Ian and Helen, made us feel very welcome indeed. We'll certainly plan to go back (it's a beautiful part of the country with lots...

We stayed 3 nights at the Hawthornbank Guest House in May and were most impressed with our room and breakfast. The views from our bedroom were lovely and the walk into town only took 10 minutes. We managed to see the Flying Scotsman while we were there. The staff were friendly and very helpful and we would love to stay...

My husband and I visited our daughter while she studied abroad in Galashiels. We can't say enough about our stay here. Helen and Ian were wonderful, friendly, and accommodating hosts; and our room was beautiful as well as very comfortable! We enjoyed the breakfasts each day, and Helen graciously invited our daughter to have breakfast with us during our stay....

Stayed here for one night at the end of June and really enjoyed it. The room was absolutely first class and the breakfast was fantastic! I am moving to the area and will certainly be recommending this Guest House to friends and family when they come to visit.

I have travelled to many hotels all over the world and stayed in lots of B&B's I find the B&B's better than hotels as it's someone's home and business and that means more to them than any hotel manager. This place is right up there one of the very best I have every stayed in. Very classy furniture and rooms,...
