Had 3 days at Fauhope House felt like a week. So relaxing and welcoming. Nothing too much trouble . Shame we had tickets for the match next time will stay around. Beautiful surroundings and great things to do. Lovely room with really comfortable beds. Hopefully back this year.

I cannot recommend Fauhope House highly enough. Ian and Sheila's home is your home - they make you feel that welcome. It's just like staying with friends - friends with a really nice house. The room I had was very comfortable and spacious with a large bathroom. The large sitting room with views of the Eildon Hills is lovely -... More

Every detail you've thought of- and many more you haven't- is taken care of here at Fauhope. Sheila and Ian are truly wonderful hosts and somehow manage to take care of the teeniest things without you noticing. The house itself is sumptuous and the beds sinkably comfortable. As for breakfast? Let's say we didn't need lunch. Thank you for a... More

We read about Fauhope in our guide book and decided to reserve a room for 2 nights. Fauhope is a beautiful guest house run by a wonderful host. Our room was amazing, very luxurious while comfortable. The Scottish breakfast was delicious, served in Sheila's beautiful dining room. We enjoyed walking along the River Tweed and over a foot bridge into... More

Fantastic setting and amazing attention to detail, room was lovely and hosts very friendly. The house is beautifully renovated with lots of character. The breakfast was beautiful and very generous. Very Close to Melrose Abbey and town centre.

Fauhope House, it's gardens, and not least of all your hosts provide a beautiful, calm environment from which you can tour the charming landscape, or simply while away the peaceful minutes. Bedrooms, bathrooms, drawing room and dining room are spacious, well stocked with essentials and more. Breakfast is delicious and the accompanying garden view calming. The local area offers very...
