“Excellent Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

Spent three nights in April and was completely satisfied. The room was light and airy and exceptionally clean. The breakfasts were very good. Loved the fact that it was so close to town yet quiet. I would highly recommend.

An excellent B&B with very friendly and accommodating owners ideally located in the town centre. Very clean rooms, all ensuite with comfortable beds. Nice and quiet, ensuring you a good sleep despite being right in the middle of town.

Breakfast was good and the owner a mind of information on where to eat in the town.

Will definately return when in area as have tried others in the area and not a patch on this accommodation.

Travelling through the Scottish Borders we decided to stay at Galashiels and were not disappointed. We could not have asked for a nicer establishment. From the friendly greeting on arrival, the lovely breakfast in the light filled dining room, comfortable ensuite bedroom and free wifi was everything we could want and only a couple of minutes walk into the town. I would recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the Scottish Borders. Delightful! Lorraine & Ken, Victoria, Australia

I've been staying at Craigielea while working in Galashiels regularly for the past year. An excellent B&B with very friendly and accommodating owners ideally located in the town centre.

Very clean rooms, all ensuite with comfortable beds. Nice and quiet, ensuring you a good sleep despite being right in the middle of town.

At Christmas the place has been refurbished, nice new bathrooms in some of the rooms, and new televisions with DVD players plus iPod docks in all the room!

A home from home, and a complete bargain to boot.

We booked two rooms for ourselves and my parents for 3 nights. Rooms were well equipped and very comfortable. Good quality breakfast using local produce. A great location, just a few minutes walk from the town. Ideal base for exploring The Borders. We will definitely be back!
