“Fantastic”
Reviewed 2 December 2012

I love this place it's so warm and welcoming and Ann is such a lovely person to chat with. I was on my oen and thought i'd be put into a twin room but was given a double, even though there were twins available and this was a lovely bonus. the room itself was lovely, gorgeous bedding and superb quality bedding and furniture. The bathroom was small but i didnt mind at all as its an old house and they've done really well to include en suite facillities in the accomodation. The guest lounge is very comfortable and homely with the fire on. I spent both my nights in there reading and watching a DVD. The breakfast is first class with a lovely home cooked feel.
the location is excellent, all pubs and restaurants and shopping on the doorstep but still a very quiet area to get a fab nights sleep.
I highly recommend this accomodation as a base to explore the Scottish Borders and relax in a very clean and welcoming environment. Will defnitely return.

Room Tip: avoid Quinns for eating - good food but at £4.90 for a large glass of wine a rip off - complained to...

We stayed here whilst walking the SUW and it was an excellent choice. The location is excellent and close to the Town Centre, although it was a bit noisy on Saturday night, with good amenities.
Ann gave us good advice on where to eat in Town and was really friendly and helpful.
The bedroom and bathroom were light with plenty of space and lots of warm water.
Breakfast was good and served in a lovely light dining room.
This is a good Band B in hte area and worth a stay to explore the beautiful walks etc around the area

My partner and I spent one night at Ann's lovely B&B. The room was lovely, clean and bright with very comfy beds. The breakfast also very good and the location is excellent. Ann was very friendly and helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. Would highly recommend this B&B.

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.
