Fauhope is ideally located on a hill overlooking the beautiful town of Melrose. We, sadly, we were able to stay for just one night and our group of walkers occupied all three of the wonderful individually designed bedrooms. Such comfort, this was indeed luxury. We were made extremely welcome by the owners. Breakfast was served in the most elegant of... More

Very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us although it was only for a short while. The Scottish Borders offer an array of walking routes so perhaps we will see you again soon when you can tackle another one! More

Beautiful house and top class hospitality; Tea and home-made cakes on arrival to friendly conversation over a superb breakfast. Our room was very comfortable and tastefully appointed .A short stroll into Melrose for culture and a wide choice of restaurants. The wider area provides lots of interest. We seldom give top marks for satisfaction but Fauhope really does deserve our... More

Fauhope House is a wonderful place to stay - we went in May and the hillside woodland was awash with bluebells - you could imagine fairies flitting around... and inside was stylish and characterful, as was our host Sheila. Everything was top notch and I can't recommend the whole experience enough - wonderful accommodation, wonderful food and wonderful hospitality.

We appreciate you review - the bluebells were in bloom when you were here and now the gardens are a riot of colour - the roses in bloom. Thank you More

Sheila greeted us upon arrival with hot tea and scones in the lush gardens. This 100 plus year old house and gardens are truly an adventure. Sheila is the consummate hostess and went above and beyond to make our stay everything we could have asked for. Indulge your senses with the scrumptious breakfast. It is obvious that Sheila loves what... More

What a lovely home Shelia and Ian share with their guests. You will not find a more knowledgeable hostess or one that takes better care of her guests. The setting of this home is beautiful and it is a great walk into Melrose to see the abbey and Harmony House garden, if you enjoy a walk. We would love to... More

This is a truly outstanding B+B offering a genuinely warm welcome in a fascinating Arts and Crafts house filled with high quality arty objects. The setting is peaceful in extensive grounds, but only a few hundred yards from Gattonside which has at least one very good restaurant. Hostess Sheila runs it with warmth and good sense, the gardens are gorgeous... More

A truly beautiful house with a welcoming feel. We felt we had come across a hidden gem. Sheila is a gracious host, nothing too much trouble for her. Lovely linens and comfortable spacious rooms, the bathroom with super toiletries, a real pleasure to be there. We will be back again

What a beautiful house and garden, hidden away in a quiet part of the Border country. Sheila gives everyone such a warm and friendly welcome. She served a delicious tea with fruit loaf and divine shortbread in her gorgeous, comfortable lounge surrounded by family photos. The room and bathroom did not disappoint. There is everything you need with a lovely... More

This is most definitely not your average bnb! A gracious and interesting house, a most welcoming hostess, a beautifully appointed bedroom and a spectacular bathroom combine to make up the initial impression. Followed by a blissfully comfy night's sleep and a delicious breakfast we were truly sad to leave.
