  • "Everything was well stocked: cookware, dishes etc."

    Our only quibble was there were no silicone utensils available for the non-stick frying pan. The decor, bedding, and towels were beautifully stylish and we were very comfortable staying there. The location couldn't be better; very quiet yet right in the middle of everything.

  • "Brilliant apartment in a great location for touring the “Borders”."

    It was warm, clean and well equipped with private parking behind the building. I was very impressed with the efficiency of the owners. The integrated oven wouldn’t heat up so I called Nicola and she was with us within a few minutes. She couldn’t get it to work either so she spoke to the owner who ordered a new one and had it installed very quickly. She was very apologetic and offered to treat us to a “takeaway “ on the evening the oven wasn’t working. Would definitely recommend and we’ll be back again in the future.

    Clean with all the facilities you could need. Unfortunately, for us when I booked we chose twin beds, but this had been changed by the time we stayed, so sleeping was a problem for me, which did impact on our enjoyment.

    Great location. A few doors away from the Mary Queen of Scots House and a shirt walk from the jail and museum. Both amazing and worth a visit, free admission, just make a donation. Some lovely places to eat and a few little nice pubs. The cottage itself is lovely, cosy, warm and well equipped. The bed was gorgeous and comfortable, lovely shower. We had contact with the owner who was very helpful and nothing was a bother. The parking is safe, lovely grass area outside the cottage where I exercised daily. Would definitely recommend and will return.

    You can literally walk to everything. Queen Mary's House is right next door, the Jail Museum and the Abbey are right near by. I would recommend booking if you're driving as public transportation to and from Jedburgh can be a bit challenging with bus schedules. Also if you have mobility issues like I do (I use a cane for walking) this ground floor flat is a good choice.

  • "We were very pleased with the flat."

    Very clean, comfortable and well looked after. The equipment and fixtures were as described and suited us fine. Due to the covid restrictions some attractions and eating places were closed or restricted. Best to phone and check before you go. You may have to book. This area of the Scottish Borders is a great place to tour about. The bed deserves a special mention very comfortable. The T.V. operated simply by pressing the buttons on the controller. The WiFi code is on the back of the rooter which is behind the TV. The rooter does not lift fully out. We took a photo of the code on our phone. Could also be done by one person calling out the number and the other writing it down. The local CO OP shop is a big one and has a wide range of goods. Enjoyed our stay. Mrs. Craig August 2021

  • "Approach was strange, between white vans at the opening of a very tight alley lined with dustbins."

    Initial impressions were negative, especially on opening the front door to be greeted by a horrible stink emanating from the bathroom. This smell srayed with us for the whole stay. The owner's housekeeper did what she could, but it reduced rather than eliminated the smell. We bought disinfectant and used it twice daily to try to get rid of / mask the smell. The property was generally clean enough, but the bathroom had a lot of black mould or dirt along the bottom of the skirting and in the joints of the floor tiles. The pipework behind the washbasin and to the side of the toilet was filthy - had not been cleaned in months (years?). The dishwasher broke down with a full load of dirty crockery. The instructions for the wifi were hidden behind a curtain and there was no provision for recycling.
