Accommodation ranges from family-run motels and hotels  (3-4 star) to locally run lodge and heritage accommodation which are rich in character, clean and comfortable and run by hosts that help add to your experience. Most rooms are en suite however the heritage nature of these buildings, on occasion, means you may have to share a bathroom. Favorites are Dunstan House in Clyde and Lauder School House.

If you are traveling alone, the tour operator will arrange for you to share accommodation with another traveler of the same gender and if they cannot match you up they will provide a single room at no extra charge. If you prefer not to share, a single supplement is payable to guarantee your own room, however, these are limited to 2 per departure on a first-come, first-served basis.
