Bill and Alison's outstanding accommodation,food and hospitality made for an excellent MTB weekend in Border country. Bill's welcome with tea and biscuits was very well received and we were very impressed and ready for the hill climbs after the well prepared and generous breakfasts.

Friends recommended this wonderful guest house. Thank goodness they did. The room was spacious and immaculate....breakfast first rate. It is difficult to explain just how good this place is.

Alison and Bill (the owners) made us feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The food and hospitality here are brilliant. Bill and Alison are a credit to local tourism and Scottish tourism in general. We look forward to going again.

The only minor difficulty we had with Glede Knowe was finding it due to the strange street numbering. But when we did we were so glad we had as this is a superb B and B that is well equipped for walkers.
Alision welcomed us on arrival and provided tea and biscuits after our long walk which was very welcome. The room had a great view and the bathroom was superbly fitted out witha shower to die for.
We got good advice on where to eat and drink and we felt very welcome in this well run establishment.
For breakfast we had a wide choice of items and it was beautifully cooked and presented.
The owners are walkers/outdoor activity people and it showed in their attention to detail for drying gear etc.
If you plan to visit this area for walking etc then this is the only place to stay! Very highly recommended.

We recently booked 4 rooms for a few days to attend a wedding nearby and had the most wonderful time. The place was beautiful, spotless and nicer than some 4 star hotels I have stayed in! The setting is gorgeous and a walk up the hill to St Ronans Well is just what is needed to stretch the legs after a long drive. My ensuite had a bath which I thoroughly enjoyed! Nothing was too much bother. Phoned taxis for us and even chilled a bottle of bubbly for us to have on the morning of the wedding. Would we go back? You bet! Would we recommend to others? Without a shadow of a doubt!! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Room 5 has the bath. The rest are showers. Lovely view.

Last minute booking on our way north and what a good find. Spotlessly clean, superb breakfast and from the little we saw of the local area well situated for a host of outdoor activities. Although the owners were away the lady managing in their absence was helpful and after a day of driving the pot of tea she served on our arrival was most welcome! If we are in this area again we would definitely look to book here.

Room Tip: Rooms all appear to have stunning views, ours, No 6 certainly did.

My partner and i recently stayed here with our 5 month old baby and we were greeted by Bill and Alison, the owners of Glede Knowe who were so friendly and made us feel so welcome throughout our whole stay.
Our room was huge, we had one of the family rooms which had a massive bed, easily room for 3 people in the bed which was perfect seeing as our little one likes to come in with us half way through the night ha. Also provided was a travel cot for the baby which was ideal.
The views from our room were amazing, the locations itself beautiful and so peaceful, no traffic noise etc.
The room was immaculate and everything provided, tea/coffee/biscuits.

In the morning after a great night sleep, we were so looking forward to breakfast and we werent disappointed, we had the full works, cooked breakfast, cereal, fruit, yogurts, they have it all and the tea and coffee was kept topped up which was great. Our little one was a bit small for a high chair but Alison came through with a baby rocking chair which was perfect for putting the baby in while we were having breakfast. Bill and Alison really have thought of everything to make a stay at their bed and breakfast a truly unforgettable experience.

Thanks again for your hospitality and rest assured, we will definetly be back!!!!!
