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.

Very friendly welcome, stayed in lovely clean room looking straight into garden. Great breakfast served fresh each morning by Chef who couldn't do enough for us. Would recommend Watson Lodge to everyone without any hesitation.

Myself and my two children aged 6 and 8 stayed in Watson's Lodge for 4 nights recently. The staff are warm and friendly, the service is prompt and professional and overall the stay was enjoyable and we would have no hesitation returning there again.

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

Having stayed at Watson Lodge on a few occasions I could recommend it to anyone wishing to stay over in the Scottish Borders. I found it very clean and comfortable. The landlady was very friendly and helpful. WATSON lodge is ideally situated in the centre of Galashiels making it in walking distance for restaurants and shops.

Stayed at the b&b for one night and couldn't fault this for the price we paid. Owner was lovely, provided great service and always willing to help - even with some uhu glue for my outfit. Location is great as just a walk away from all the shops and bars. Breakfast was good, with excellent choices and even veggie option.... More

My husband and I stayed at Watson's lodge and it was an excellent place to stay, very clean, super friendly staff and quiet at night too. One street back from main road so close to everything with a Wetherby's right behind it.
