We enjoyed an overnight stay at this excellent guest house while completing the Coast and Castles cyce route. We arrived late afternoon, soaked through after cycling through a storm. Guy was the perfect host, having secure storage for our bikes and drying facilites for wet clothes. He kindly dried out our sodden cycling shoes overnight and the room, with its great view, had ample radiators to dry our other damp clothing. We enjoyed a great evening meal in a local pub which Guy recommended. The following morning we enjoyed an excellent, varied breakfast selected from the extensive breakfast menu. We can highly recommend staying at this excellent establishment. Many thanks Guy!

Dear Martin, we are delighted that you enjoyed staying with us at Glede Knowe. It was a bit of a shame that you got such a soaking as cycling through the Borders scenery is usually such a joy. Thank you very much for such a nice review and we hope you can come again sometime. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip. Kind regards, Guy

Stayed two nights as a group of three for the nearby mountain biking. Guy and Lesley were perfect hosts, going way beyond what we would have expected to make our stay a pleasant one. The bedrooms were very comfortable and well appointed and the rest of the house spotlessly clean, which can’t be easy with muddy mountain bikers! Breakfast was brilliant and we were able to use the dining room for takeaway meals, as all the restaurants were closed to diners.
A great stay, despite the weather, hopefully will return.

This was our first stay at Glede Knowe but I doubt it will be our last. The entire stay was great from start to finish. Before our stay, Guy had been in touch about some special requirements we had (about covid precautions and being gluten free) and had been very accommodating. We stayed in room 7, a lovely big room with views to the hills and two comfortable beds (a king size bed and a generous single bed). The ensuite shower room was clean and the shower had good water pressure. The room was comfortable with some lovely luxurious touches that made the whole stay feel like a great treat. The breakfast was delicious and filling and we enjoyed the beautiful views from the dining room. There was parking onsite (there is a steep slope to the spaces but these spaces are on level ground). We also saw cyclists arriving and making use of the secure cycle storage and drying facilities.

This is my 5th stay here at Glede Knowe in the centre of Innerleithen and once again Guy has provided us with everything we have needed and more😀

The breakfast is fresh, tasty and there’s a big selection to chose from. The garage can store your bikes has a pressure washer and is very spacious.
The rooms are big , clean and offer spectacular views over the Innerleithen hillside 🏔

I stay here every year and the quality of service continues to impress me, we are already planning a return visit to the valley.

Thanks Guy 👍

Dear Travelling Orange, one of the best parts about running a guest house like Glede Knowe is people who like what you do keep coming back. Seeing familiar faces when you open the front door is a really great feeling so we thank you very much, not just for giving us a great review but also for being a familiar face. We are delighted that you enjoy the trails in the Tweed Valley and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Many thanks, regards, Guy

I cant' recommend this lovely guest house highly enough. The room was everything one hopes for when booking, tasteful decor, spotlessly clean, very comfortable with good quality products available from the soaps to the coffee , a great shower and beautiful views.
Breakfast was absolutely delicious on both mornings with a array of locally sourced produce cooked to perfection.
The host was delightful and made our stay very pleasant indeed.
The surrounding area is great for walking and sightseeing and there are a couple of good restaurants within walking distance. I would definitely stay again and would highly recommend.

We have returned to this Bed and Breakfast to stay with Guy and Lesley each year for five years now. We usually stay here for the Fringe but even though it was cancelled this year, we didn't want to miss our stay and went biking and walking instead. We were happy to find that they have extensive and consistent procedures in place to cover the Covid 19 situation. We can honestly say it is the best Bed and Breakfast that we stay at, and their attention to detail is amazing. From their welcome to when we leave, nothing is too much trouble and they both do everything they can to make our stay the best it can be, from local walks and rides to setting out a table in the evening for our take out meal and providing iced water for us too. The breakfast is second to none with good quality and fresh ingredients. Parking for our bikes is safe and secure for our peace of mind too. We can highly recommend the Glede Knowe if you are staying in Innerleithen.

Thank you for all the kind things you have said about staying at Glede Knowe and we look forward to seeing you again. Take care and stay safe. Kind regards, Guy

We stayed here for 2 nights with some friends, Guy was an excellent host from the moment you walked through the door. Fantastic views from room 4 over the large garden and hills in the background. Ample secure free parking. The rooms were all immaculate and spotless, Guy’s attention to details is like mine, spot on, even the knives on the table were all laying the same way 👍
He was very helpful with guidance on local walks and places to eat out. The breakfast was to die for - gorgeous well cooked tasty local produce. The dining room looks out over the sloped garden towards the hills and woods. Nice quality toiletries in the bathroom with fluffy towels.
Would we stay again ?
A big fat 100%
Keep up the good work 😀

We stayed here for 3 nights for a celebratory break and an opportunity to walk in the local area. Glede Knowe is ideally located, set back from the main road in an elevated location with hill views, yet easily accessible for local eateries. Guy was a great host and had taken great care to cater for my husband's lactose intolerance. Thanks again! Our room and the guest dining room/lounge were spotless and nicely decorated. We slept very well and had a satisfying and tasty breakfast each morning. We appreciated being able to use the comfortable guest lounge each evening and also on our morning of departure while waiting to attend an event at the NTS Printing Works. We will definitely be returning to this gem of a 'walker friendly' guest house.

We can’t recommend our stay with Guy and Lesley highly enough! We have stayed with them several times now and each time we receive a warm welcome and stay in a spacious clean and quiet room with beautiful views. For breakfast we enjoyed fresh fruit, yogurts and a full Scottish breakfast which is beautifully cooked. Parking is secure for our bikes which is important to us.

Stayed for 2 nights early August with my son in a lovely twin room for a wee break before schools returned. The hosts Guy and Lesley are so friendly and helpful. They gave us access to the garage for our mountain bikes which was much appreciated. Car parking is also safe and secure. Easy walking distance to town. The rooms are spacious, very well decorated and fabulous views. Super comfy beds and spotlessly clean throughout. Their attention to detail for Covid19 situation is very reassuring. Their breakfast has a great varied selection and is fresh and delicious. The hosts create a lovely welcoming atmosphere. They looked after us extremely well and I'm very grateful for everything they did for us. Will definitely be back!
