We stayed at Watson Lodge for 3 nights in October. The Lodge is very near the new Galashiels railway station. It took us less than 10 minutes to walk from the station to Watson Lodge and it is very well signposted. It was warm, comfortable, clean and quiet. The double bed was super king size The staff were very helpful.

This was an excellent Guest House. We had Room 1 with en-suite facilities. It was absolutely perfect. The owners are so friendly, and make you very welcome. Little bit of noise from the surrounding area on a Friday night. Superb breakfast.
