About the hotel

The Kingsknowes Hotel is a beautiful Scots Baronial Mansion, built in 1869 with 12, individually furnished, en-suite bedrooms. The hotel has splendid and well tended gardens, abundant parking and is only a 15 minute walk from Galashiels town centre. The Kingsknowes is set in the heart of the romantic Scottish Borders and overlooks Abbotsford House- Sir Walter Scott's ancestral home - the River Tweed (famous salmon river) and the beautiful Eildon hills.

It is an ideal base whether you are on business, or wish to tour the area and explore the Border Abbeys and famous houses, relax in our ambient atmosphere, or enjoy golf, shooting, salmon fishing, walking or cycling and many other sporting activities. Lunch and dinner is served daily in the Courtyard Bar or in one of our unique dining rooms, and during the summer months in our original Edwardian conservatory. We are situated only 33 miles south of Edinburgh on the A7, with great transport links to other surrounding Border towns.

The Kingsknowes Hotel

Loved it the Hotel is bonny and interesting just the right atmosphere and great staff.

best nights sleep I ever had away from home really felt like I was in Scotland and loved wondering around the gardens after dinner.Had a top room up the stairs under the tower that had all we needed . This hotel just has a great feel and is perfect if you want to feel welcome and contented no unquiet souls here so must have a tame history for the borders. It is just a nice place to be.
