  • "The apartment worked well for me, Good location for the train and local amenities."

    Although I was there alone I did have my grown son and his wife stay overnight one night. Cooking while they were there was the only time the size and layout of the kitchen became a nuisance. Other than that, the WiFi worked well (I did some work on line) TV, heating, beds were all excellent.

    Thank you for your positive feedback. we are pleased you had a pleasant and productive stay. Property Owner

  • "Great apartment."

    Everything you would need was there for you. Plenty to explore in the area and lovely walks. Owners kept in touch and the wine and shortbread they left for our arrival was a nice gesture. Kitchen was excellent with all the usual kitchen utensils. Easy walk to the railway station and bus stops 5 minutes walk away. Would certainly recommend this lovely apartment for a stay in the borders.

    We are glad you had such a good week at our apartment and found it so convenient for exploring the local area. Many thanks for your kind comments. Property Owner
