We stayed in Tweed Rig in July 2014 as a family group of 9, we were really looking forward to staying in the property but when we arrived it was not the house advertised in the pictures on the interne… More

As the owner of Tweed Rig, I was shocked to find this review. In the 10 years we have rented out Tweed Rig we have never had a review like this. This is our former, family home and we do everything we can to ensure our guests enjoy their stay. As with all large houses, things do get broken or need replaced from time to time and we always ask our guests to report anything wrong so we can fix/replace things as the cleaning company do not have time during changeovers to check everything. I was confused about this complaint as there had been guests in the house straight after the 'disappointed' guests and they found everything to be in working order and left a review saying how much they enjoyed their stay (Amazing, Sept 2014). Without knowing all the details, I immediately emailed the 'disappointed' guests to offer them another stay for free which they accepted. I later found out from the cleaners that it took them a while to clean the house after the disappointed guests left. The cleaners took photo's on their mobile phones to explain the reason it took them twice as long to clean the house that day. Perhaps the guests thought they would not get their deposit back and had looked for faults to retaliate? After checking the list of their complaints, there were only 2 valid faults - the seal had gone in double glazed window which we could not have been fixed until the house was empty and the balcony was needing some minor maintenance work done which again would have needed to be done when the house was empty. The guests were keen to book dates for their free stay but I could not offer them any definite dates until November 2015 onwards as we were committed to other bookings and some essential repairs and maintenance. I never heard from the guests again after I emailed them with the dates and then they submitted the review. We always ask guests if they find something wrong or not working in the house to contact us and we will try and fix things for them and future guests, so I am not sure why they didn't call us if things were not right.
We are not in business to make huge profits. We do not charge a lot of rent for the size and location of the property compared to other similar properties. Our aim is to keep our former home well maintained for our future use and for guests to enjoy this unique home in the meantime.

We recently hired out Tweed Rig for my 30th bday and had a wonderful time with the family. The location was great as it was isolated and we had some time to ourselves and also an easy commute to Edinb… More

"Practical, peaceful and perfect!"

Tweed Rig is an extremely well-equipped house. We were not short of anything. The house is comfortable, spacious and very pleasantly decorated. On arrival we found our accommodation to be clean and tidy. The location was great, very quiet and within easy walking distance to the village and a slightly further, but enjoyable walk, takes you right into Melrose.
A super property for a lovely family holiday!

Lovely accommodation - especially the master bedroom on the top floor - what a fantastic view of Melrose, the abbey and surrounding countryside. The place was spotless and very attractively furnished… More
