Visited again 29th November, Sheila and staff had put up the christmas trees which only enhanced the beautiful house even more. We had a lovely warm from welcome from Sheila and Ian and were treated to wine and snacks as we arrived later than usual. We stayed in a different room this time, the one with the roll top bath...

Fauhope House is situated in Gattonside across the river from Melrose. However you can drive down to the bridge from where it is a pleasant walk into town and if you are lucky interesting bird life can be seen from the bridge. We had a large beautifully furnished room with a very comfortable bed. The sitting room has comfortable chairs... More

Fauhope is a beautiful house up slope of the small towns right on the river. The room was very comfortable. Given the number of 5 star reviews, I'm hopeful that the problems we encountered were flukes or equipment failures. We (and other guests) found the hot water to be very limited in the morning. There was no way they could... More

Spent two nights at Fauhope and wish it could have been longer! From Sheila's welcome and tea and goodies on the terrace in the sunshine to her tips of where to stop off on our journey home (we went to Dawyck Botanic Gardens and it was marvellous!), we were made to feel like friends rather than paying guests!

Stayed for one night - wish it could have been more. We were welcomed from the moment we arrived as honoured guests. The house and setting is beautiful, the bedroom luxurious with an extremely comfortable bed. Breakfast delicious. There is nothing ordinary about Fauhope House from the wonderful hospitality to the stunning decor and idyllic surroundings.

We were treated like house guests here, with a lovely friendly welcome and much lively discussion over breakfast about the independence vote that took place during our visit. Don't be daunted by the slightly rough track on the approach, it's well worth it. The house is lovely, and the gardens quite splendid. Very comfy bed and we will return when... More

Stayed here at the beginning of September. Everything was spotlessly clean. Rooms exceptionally well equipped - I haven't ever stayed in a room where straighteners, sherry, candles and every conceivable toiletry were provided. Breakfast was excellent and included local produce and a few home made items. Sheila is helpful and attentive without being intrusive.

This was our first time in Scotland Sheila was incredibly friendly & helpful. Her wonderful recommendations for places to visit actually trumped our own trip research - and we made a point of following her suggestions to a tee. The house is truly a manor estate, and Sheila has lavished (and continues to) so much effort. Everything is perfect -... More

The Fauhope Guest House was an impressive home with a marvelous view and gracious host but it is badly in need of management. Two simple examples: For breakfast, tea was served in a silver pot with a thick cover of dust! It sure made one wonder what the inside might have been like. After we ate breakfast, we went back...

Dear Sirs, Thank you very much for your feedback regarding Fauhope House. I am incredibly sorry you found 'dust' on your teapot and that your towels were removed by the time you returned to your room after breakfast. On inspection I have realised that what you referred to as dust was in fact silver polish which had not been removed... More
