Very friendly welcome, stayed in lovely clean room looking straight into garden. Great breakfast served fresh each morning by Chef who couldn't do enough for us. Would recommend Watson Lodge to everyone without any hesitation.

Thank you for your lovely comments. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Our garden room is particularly attractive at this time of year when the sun is shining and the flowers are out. Let's hope the good weather continues! I have passed on your comments to our breakfast chef who always keeps us cheery in the mornings. Thank you again for your recommendation and we hope to welcome you to Watson Lodge again soon.

Myself and my two children aged 6 and 8 stayed in Watson's Lodge for 4 nights recently. The staff are warm and friendly, the service is prompt and professional and overall the stay was enjoyable and we would have no hesitation returning there again.

Thank you Mr. G and your two fantastic children! It was our pleasure to accommodate you on your recent stay in Galashiels. I can't stress enough how impressed we were with your childrens' friendliness and manners. They are a credit to you and they are most welcome at Watson Lodge any time. (Oh and yourself of course!)

We had a lovely overnight stay at Watson Lodge Guest House. We felt very welcomed on our arrival and our room was very clean, plasma screen on wall too. After a friends wedding that day we had a great nights sleep and we even got some TLC with breakfast to help with my hangover.

Thank you for your kind remarks. We appreciate you taking time to write us a review. Part of attending a wedding or other occasion is knowing that your overnight stay will be comfortable and I am glad we were able to provide that for you. And TLC the morning after is also our pleasure to provide!

Having stayed at Watson Lodge on a few occasions I could recommend it to anyone wishing to stay over in the Scottish Borders. I found it very clean and comfortable. The landlady was very friendly and helpful. WATSON lodge is ideally situated in the centre of Galashiels making it in walking distance for restaurants and shops.

Booked into Watson Lodge on Sat and received a very warm welcome by Sheena, a very nice lady and once we were checked in were given a lovely cosy room on ground floor it was bright, clean and warm and lovely crisp white bedding, on a very comfy king size bed, very close to pubs and restaurants that afternoon we had lovely meal in The Harrow Inn and also a lovely pizza from Crollas Takeaway that night on the High St. after a good nights sleep had a great breakfast next morning choice of cereal or porridge, followed by full English, toast and preserves, juice, tea, coffee staff very friendly and efficient overall a lovely weekend in a quiet location, will look forward to our next visit.
