          we would like to visit Galashiels and stay at your hotel. my wife is a case of rheumatoid arthritis; and so is your hotel physically disabled friendly such as having wheel chair ramps. does the room have a shower stall as opposed to a shower in a bath tub and do you have a suite on the ground level as i presume you would not be having an elevator to go to the first level - she is unable to use a staircase.

          I am not sure if the Hotel has any rooms downstairs.All the rooms our group had were on first and second floors. Contacting the Hotel will clarify. It is a very good hotel and the owner and staff are very helpful.
