“The best guest house I have stayed at!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

My husband and I were recently travelling in Scotland with our dog, and stayed at Glede Knowe for the last two nights, as it was recommended as pet friendly.
We received a very warm welcome on arrival, our room was spotless, beautifully decorated and well prepared for our stay.
We were asked to complete menus for our breakfast, either continental or full English, and additionally we were offered a fresh bowl of fruit if we so wished, with whichever breakfast we decided to have. The breakfast room/lounge overlooked the lovely garden, again was spotless, and the service very friendly.
To top it off, we didn't even have to pay for our dog!
Unfortunately we had noisy neighbours the second night, but this was not the fault of the guest house, and I would definitely recommend anybody travelling to this area to book here. We would definitely do so again.

Stayed here with friends while attending the fantastic Innerleithen Music festival. Can only confirm the previous reviews. Welcoming hosts, clean and spacious rooms and a good choice of delicious, high quality food for breakfast. Can't be beaten really!

What a wonderful place for the last nights of our tandem bicycle tour of the Borders! Our room was spacious, clean, and modern. There was a lovely sitting room downstairs with magazines and pamphlets. (We found that most B and Bs in which we stayed had no sitting room and we often felt confined in our rooms. At Glede Knowe we had "the run of the house" and felt very free.) There was a garage for storage of our large tandem bicycle. Windows from our room and from the breakfast area overlook the town and the rich greenery of Scotland. The house was very quiet even though all rooms were filled. Our hostess, Alison, and her right hand person, Susan, were very friendly, generous with conversation. The "breakfast room" was more like an elegant dining room with the same views of the gorgeous hills and greenery surrounding Innerleithen. Breakfast was delicious with many choices. (Scrambled eggs with salmon highly recommended!) This is a wonderful guest house with welcoming hosts.

We arrived at Glede Knowe soaked after 50 miles cycling and were straight away welcomed, our bikes stored and our wet shoes whisked off to be dryed out. What a relief at the end of the day to be somewhere so comfortable and welcoming.
Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and very well appointed, and the ensuite shower room was lovely and modern with a big shower. We had a fabulous view across the valley.
Downstairs again, we were soon enjoying our tea and shortbread in the airy lounge, feeling very much at home. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, who were just the right amount of attentive! They have totally nailed the art of B&B, providing a homely yet modern and relaxed environment for their guests.
At the other end of the lounge is the dining area where an excellent breakfast is served as you enjoy the view over their lovely garden, full of overflowing flower tubs when we were there, and the valley beyond. They will even supply crockery etc for you to eat an evening takeaway in the civilised surroundings of their dining room.
The guest house is set on the hillside only about 5 minutes walk to the centre of town. It would be an easy walk for most people. There is a short but steepish driveway into the property.
I was quite sad to have to leave again the next day after only one night. I wholeheartedly recommend Glede Knowe to anyone visiting Innerleithen.

Lovely guest house - rooms clean, comfortable, spacious, light with wonderful views and a very high standard. THe breakfast is sumptuous - fabulous fresh fruit salads, cooked breakfasts, porridge and very nice coffee indeed. The owners also let us have a picnic supper on their fantastic patio with views of the town and hills. Our bikes were looked after very well too! Very hospitable and comfortable, thank you.

Room Tip: I imagine they're all great.

In company with 5 friends, I stayed here on Wednesday 23 July 2014. The house is beautiful, looking over a stunning valley and reminiscent of an alpine landscape.

Our rooms were very clean and comfortable, with a spacious and modern ensuite bathroom.

On arrival we were warmly greeted and immediately offered drinks. Breakfast was superb, with a huge choice of continental and/or full English.

We were cycling the coast and castles bike route, and the accommodation is perfectly situated to make this an ideal stop off. Our host, Alison, was very knowledgeable about the local area, and gave us some really useful information about the next days cycling, as well as providing secure storage for our bikes.

There is a very good hotel in the village for food / real ale ( if that is your thing!).

We had a fabulous stop off here and I. Would highly recommend it.

Just spent the weekend at Glede Knowe, over looking Innerleithen and the surrounding hills......beautiful setting.

Guest House itself is lovely and spacious. Excellent lounge for guests to use if they wish and lovely dining room over looking the gorgeous garden. Ate breakfast watching wild rabbits playing in the garden

Our room was a double with en suite. Very comfortable bed, airy room and large bathroom. Bedroom and bathroom were absolutely spotless. Bathroom had everything you needed and the room had plenty of refreshments......coffee, tea, milk, bottles of water and biscuits. The rooms also had a kettle, cups and even a hairdryer. Nothing spared, you literally just need to pack clothes and wash bag.

Breakfasts were buffet style with a choice of cereals, yogurts and fruit,,including two fruit juices. You also had a choice of cooked breakfast, continental breakfast or just toast. Cooked breakfasts to be requested the evening before. Tea or coffee served and top ups if required.

Lots of local knowledge from the owners,who were so friendly, warm and welcoming.

Can not fault Glede Knowe at all. Excellent stay all round and can fully recommend a visit.
