We stayed here while visiting friends in Galashiels. Craigielea was easy to find and we were made to feel very welcome on arrival. Our room was comfortable and had everything that we needed. I've seen another review describe Craigielea as a home from home and we fully agree with this! Breakfast was superb - lovely and fresh, great coffee and... More

As a doctoral student in English dialectology and sociolinguistics, I need to carry out fieldworks to be able to collect interesting data for my research. Finding a B&B is necessary to work in good conditions and Craigielea is without a doubt a nice place to stay. I spent a month there in 2012. Breakfasts were quite good and the room... More

My husband and I took my 90yr old uncle for a trip round the Borders area, and we spent a night here. The rooms were lovely with everything you could need and the breakfast was scrumptious. We were made to feel very welcome, and we would recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay in Galashiels.

Lovely little B&B. Nice room, very friendly staff, homely atmosphere, and filling breakfast. Excellent value too. Handy for town centre. Old Gala House Museum, Art Gallery and gardens is virtually behind it, and is another hidden gem.

Stayed here for an overnight visit. The guest house is central for all amenities in Galashiels. It is a 5 minute walk from the centre of town. Anne the owner was very helpful and friendly. We had a twin room at the front of the guest house which was very clean with an en-suite bathroom with shower. There were plenty... More

We had a lovely stay at Craiglelea Guest House. It is a lovely house. Ann was a perfect host and our room overlooking the church, with a chiming clock, was very clean and modern. We had a very good night's sleep and enjoyed a great breakfast next day. We recommend staying at Craiglelea.

This small guest house is situated within easy walking distance of all the shops and bars in Galashiels. Anne, the owner, is very pleasant and friendly. We have stayed here twice, the first time in a twin room on the first floor which was at the back of the house and very quiet. On our second visit, we were given... More

Anyone looking for a B & B in Galashiels won't have to look any further that this one. Comfy beds and the whole place was spotlessly clean. Excellent breakfast with as much tea/ coffee and toast as you wanted.
