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

My husband and I have just spent 2 days at Fauhope House in Melrose: what a very beautiful and comfortable old house and with such a gracious and very welcoming hostess in Sheila. There is such attention to detail - from the welcoming tea and home made cake and shortbread to the extra little touches in the bedrooms (sherry, GHD... More

Stopped off en route south from the fringe and had a wonderful relaxing time. Luxurious tower room and super comfortable bed. Setting is stunning and the house a beautiful Arts and Crafts example. If we can we will return if only to let my partner relive her childhood in Melrose again.

I can only second the previous review in that Fauhope House is a truly amazing experience. The house itself is beautifully furnished, bedrooms really luxurious and the breakfast room setting was inspirational. We have promised ourselves that occasionally we will try to recreate this, with the flowers, the candles and the classical music ! The icing on the cake at... More

This was truly an extraordinary experience. I have stayed in many B&Bs in the US and GB but this was beyond anything else. There is luxury from one end to the other, from the sherry decanters for guests in the living room and bedrooms, to plush bedrooms, to the flower-filled entrance hall. The breakfast surprise was the dining room that... More

We enjoyed beautiful weather whilst staying in this magnificent home so we were able to take full advantage of the lovely views and garden. Our room was very large and luxurious with an extremely comfortable bed and every need catered for.

The beautiful Fauhope House was a lucky find as we hunted for a late break to celebrate our wedding anniversary. As previous reviewers noted a little difficult to find but we felt that all added to the sense of adventure and exclusivity. Shelia was the a perfect host to her very special home.
