We were recommended to go by a friend and although it isn't usually my kind of place to visit we decided to give it ago. The man working in the ticket box was very friendly and we stayed to chat for a while and he was full of information about the castle and walks around the grounds. We went into the castle which was amazing there was soo much to look at! The staff inside the castle were very friendly and full of interesting information. We visited the gift shop on the way out but the cafe was shut. I would recommend it to anyone looking for something different to go see.

We loved it - the guides in the castle made the whole visit. They were wonderfully knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. The castle is beautiful,

Stopped off here as part of our trip to The Borders. Paid £4.50 for a grounds and garden ticket. Had lovely tea and cake sitting outside the cafe, then had look round garden centre. Due to the heavy rain we had speedy trip round the rest of the gardens and popped into gift shop

We often visit floors when I'm up visiting my mum in the Borders and try to involve a stop the en route whilst we are out and about. Playground and zip wire great for younger kids (probably about 10). Lovely walled gardens and cafe which does good food. Nice h tables to sit outside. Wider grounds really pretty and well kept for a short stroll.

The gardens are immaculately kept, and having visited in April we can only imagine how beautiful this will be during June and July. The Terrace Cafe at the Plant Centre is indeed a professionally run place. Although we only had coffee and scones (which were delicious) the plates of food being delivered looked really plentiful and tasty - and a real sun trap on a beautiful Easter Sunday!
