Stayed here for 2-nights in an on-suite twin room at the back of the guest house. Room and bathroom very clean. Beds in need of replacing and sleep quality not particularly good. Excellent breakfast and good value at £30pppn. Location is right in the middle of Galashiels across the road from the Police Station and behind the Wetherspoons.

Thank you for your review and comments. We do strive to please all our guests but bed firmness or softness can often be a matter of personal preference. The beds in the room you occupied were in fact purchased within the last year but I apologise if they were not as comfortable as you would have liked. I am so... More

If you are looking for value for money budget accommodation this is fine. We stayed here for two nights and had a very quiet clean bedroom at the back of the house. Nice crisp white sheets and all we needed in the ensuite shower room, though the height of the suspended TV screen made it hard for someone short to... More

Good price-quality ratio and very good breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay at Watson Lodge Guest House. They even recommended us a magnificent restaurant to have dinner. We had a very rainy weather though.

We stayed in the garden on room for a second time and have no faults with the room. It is very spacious and spotlessly clean. Breakfast , we asked for potato scones with our breakfast but were disappointed as they did not appear to be cooked. Apart from that breakfast was good. The only problem we encountered was we had...

I called the guest house at very short notice to see if they had a twin room for one night with a late check in and a very early breakfast and departure....and they delivered on everything. Comfortable room, good bed, good shower and a good breakfast ahead of a long day's cycle.

We had a lovely overnight stay at Watson Lodge Guest House. We felt very welcomed on our arrival and our room was very clean, plasma screen on wall too. After a friends wedding that day we had a great nights sleep and we even got some TLC with breakfast to help with my hangover.

Thank you for your kind remarks. We appreciate you taking time to write us a review. Part of attending a wedding or other occasion is knowing that your overnight stay will be comfortable and I am glad we were able to provide that for you. And TLC the morning after is also our pleasure to provide! More
