This is a flat under the same roof of two private residences, major renovations were underway when we arrived, there wasn't even a place to park the cars. The flat was okay but it didn't have a clean feel about it, a bit musty. We had hoped, and saved, for a relaxing vacation in Melrose but that was not the reality of our stay. It was loud, disappointing and tense. We will not return to Eildonside.
Unclean Apartment, Dishes were greasy and whole kitchen needed deep clean. Noisy, Bad Service. I will never book again!
Arrived with some friends who booked this rental for the holiday. No key and no rental agent to deliver the key. Thee was no parking available in the vicinity and had to drag suitcases for three people and four children up the driveway. To be kind, the furniture can be described as "well used"--a gentler version of saying threadbare. Before we could feed ourselves and the children we had to wash grease from every single item in the kitchen. We were also bothered by the sounds of busses continuously from the front of the house and the whine of the bypass at the rear of the house. We love visiting Melrose but will not be returning to this particular establishment.
This upper conversion flat is rather grand with high ceilings and original features but we found it well appointed, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Stunning views of the Eildon hills.The furniture, bedding etc was all top quality and the kitchen was a delight to cook and eat in.
Melrose is beautiful with great restaurants, shops, walks and countryside.
