Staying in Galashiels on business what a pleasant surprise my stay here has been. Friendly attentive staff , that remember your name and favourite drink at the bar, made it feel more like coming home than staying in a hotel. The room was cleaned to the highest standard everyday. Good old fashioned brilliant customer service has made this trip away... More

Stayed here for two nights while fishing the Tweed with friends. Hotel has plenty of character with superb timber used for the interior stairs etc, staff brilliant, drinks not overpriced,breakfast fabulous, evening meals equally as good. Rooms were very clean with comfortable beds. Downside, my room had a very small ensuite with plumbing that needs upgrading. I would recommend this... More

We booked the Kingsknowes Hotel to host my parents 60th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful 3 night stay in the Honeymoon suite (albeit with 2 kids in tow). A wonderful breakfast with friendly staff and a comfy lounge to sit in the evening. Recommended.

Stayed here last week overnight for bed and breakfast, and had dinner in addition. There were a few additonal specials for dinner but when we asked for each of them they were sold out. This was not such a big deal though as there was plenty of choice in the standard menu. I had battered fish and chips and my... More

From Friday 1st to Monday 4th. August. Our walking group had a very kind and warm reception at the Kingsknowes. This was to be expected as Friends and ourselves had been before and the fine food and friendly staff had not changed. The rooms are comfortable although no room wifi but wifi is free in the cocktail bar area. This... More

Lovely spacious room with beautiful views over the river. Excellent service from all staff. They were so helpful especially when seeing us dinner. We decided to eat in the beautiful garden due to the heat and nothing was too much trouble for the waitress. Dogs made very welcome. A lovely stay all round!

Went for lunch enroute to scotts view. The building was very impressive, beautiful from the outside. Surroundings were lovely. Diningroom was small but nicely decorated. Staff were very polite and friendly. Food was realy well presented and tasty. Will definately be back.

The house is amazing, it looks just like the pictures on here. The grounds were large and spacious, not much in the way of decorations but it did not lack for that! There was a small play area for children up to 10 years of age. Breakfast was good, sit down restaurant style with juice on a buffet table, choice... More
