Fabulous room , very comfortable. Loved all the Moulton Brown soaps and bath gel.
Breakfast was amazing, lots of fresh fruit and the cooked breakfast was perfect.
The hostess was very s friendly. The views over the garden amazing.

Room Tip: So close to he Town of Melrose. Just a short walk over the metal Bridge

Sheila and Ian are fantastic hosts and we were delighted to take our annual pilgrimage to Fauhope as our base for the Melrose 7s. Fauhope is stunning, beautifully furnished, extremely comfortable and nestled snugly into the hillside. Breakfasts are delicious and so filling you won't need lunch. Happy to recommend - you won't be disappointed.

We booked two rooms at Fauhope House for 6 nights from 4 April. It is such a lovely house and the hosts Sheila & Ian are warm, friendly and welcoming people. Breakfasts were superb. Rooms and Beds are extremely comfortable. we would happily stay there again and it is a great place from which to explore the Tweed Valley and the Borders. Edinburgh is an easy drive away too. Am happy to recommend Fauhope to future guests

This is the most comfortable B&B we've ever stayed in. A beautiful situation, overlooking the River Tweed looking towards Melrose. A very warm welcome from delightful owners, nothing too much trouble. A very comfortable and well appointed good size bedroom and spacious bathroom (bath only in ours), free use of a large lounge and a very generous and beautifully cooked breakfast. Eating out not a problem, two places in Gattonside that are OK, plenty of choice across the river in Melrose (walkable). Would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: We had a look at all the rooms, they all looked very comfortable and had good views of the beautiful...

Sheila & Ian are fabulous hosts, with nothing too much trouble. Fauhope is a magnificent Arts & Crafts building with charm and character inside and out. Everything was provided to make our stay extremely warm and comfortable and we hope to return soon. 15 out of 10!

Our second stay at Fauhope House and it was every bit as good as we remembered.
There aren't many B&Bs where you can sprawl out in front of the drawing room fire, have your host tuck another cushion under your head and top up your glass of sherry!
Fauhope is a beautiful Arts and Crafts house in a stunning setting with fabulous rooms and food. What makes it even more special is the very warm welcome we received from Sheila.
Looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: They are all good. We like the Turrett room, but for finer weather the Garden room has a private sit...
