With just a tiny and low sign saying "Fauhope" directing you down an almost hidden, narrow lane, it was a challenge finding our way to the house. We stayed one night in the Garden Suite, with classic English decor snd a lovely view, which for two would have been fine but with an extra aero bed for our son was... More

Friendly environment, excellent breakfast, lovely gardens with spectacular views of Eildon Hills. One drawback is that it can be difficult to find so ring up before arrival to get precise travel instructions. Fauhope House is on a par with the best of hotels.

Fauhope House is an absolute delight, and Sheila and Ian, the perfect hosts. My husband and I spent two nights in the Garden Suite. It was luxurious, comfortable and had everything we could possibly have wished for, including our own private garden. Breakfasts were delicious, especially the homemade rhubarb compote! We look forward to a return trip in the future.

Fauhope is simply a wonderful, all round experience.This establishment is not to be missed. Sheila greeted us with afternoon tea which we took in the garden overlooking the Eildon hills. Our room was magnificent. Enormous and very comfortable bed with luxury linens. Beautifully decorated with soft furnishings which were tastefully arranged. The bathroom was spotless, as was the room, and... More

Great welcome and hospitality from Sheila. Lovely bedrooms with very comfortable beds. Nothing too much trouble from son taking us into Melrose for our dinner which Sheila booked for us, neighbours invited for pre dinner drinks with us and arnica tablets for my black eye! Beautiful afternoon tea on arrival in pretty china cups with home baking and a splendid... More

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

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.

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
