My fiance' and I were traveling through Galashiels on a tour through Scotland. This was our absolutely favorite place we stayed. Not only was the staff very friendly, but the traditional Scottish breakfast was amazing! The room was very charming and clean! We felt at home and the quiet was great (unlike many noisy hotels we stayed in). We would... More

Watson Lodge is situated in the centre of Galashiels. My partner and I have stayed there a few times and have always found it exceptionally clean and friendly. The owner is lovely, making sure that everything is to your liking, nothing is too much bother. Breakfast is amazing, again, nothing is too much trouble. If they have it, then you... More

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.

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

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.
