“Perfect location for exploring Borders”
Impressed with bedroom sizes, cleanliness, and overall position of house in Melrose. Bedding, towels, kitchen utensils all to a high standard. Will recommend to friends and family and hope to go again in future.
Beautifully appointed house in central melrose large house immaculately clean host pleasent and welcoming definitely has the wow factor
“Excellent house in Melrose”
My wife and I had an excellent week in this well furnished, comfortable, immaculately clean house, close to the centre of Melrose. The rear of the property overlooks a park and it is a short walk to local shops etc. We played golf (badly) at Coldstream, Torwoodlee, Minto and Peebles. Recommended.
Parkview is an excellent self catering property. As it implies it is close, in fact backs onto the park - loads to do for small children and teenagers in and around the park - flood light tennis - great looking play park and of course rugby pitch behind. The house itself was of a very high standard, was incredibly clean and was equipped very well. Walking distance to all of Melrose's attractions including a lovely walk along the tweed - couple of nice restaurants across the bridge in Gattonside. Took the bus into Galashields and went to the cinema - longer journey's also easy right from the door step. All in all we were very impressed and will definitely go back.
Thanks for your review .Its great to hear you really enjoyed your week in Melrose and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
“Ideal place for a relaxing week”
The house was clean, modern and very comfortable. Melrose itself is a lovely, self-contained little town, with plenty to do locally as well as being a good base for touring the Borders.
A beautiful house, close walking distance to everything you would need. Everything except food included. Bedrooms excellent size and bathroom perfect.
“FIRST CLASS ACCOMMODATION”
Stayed for a week in early August.Excellent accommodation, park is next door which was great as we had two young children to entertain.Three minute walk to Melrose High Street which has a very good range of shops for everyday needs.Also plenty of hotels and eateries if you don`t fancy cooking. Parkview is modern, clean and very comfortable.It has been renovated in recent times and the kitchen and bathrooms are excellent ,bedrooms very comfortably furnished with good quality bed linen.A great supply of fresh towels was provided.A lot of thought has gone into the accommodation and Kevin deserves an accolade for the attention to detail in a property that wants for nothing.The decoration is neutral and fresh throughout and all the fixtures and fittings are of a very good quality.The website is accurate.Great base for visting nearby Border attractions including Melrose Abbey.Would certainly stay again .
“A great place to stay”
We organized our trip from the USA and the owner was incredibly helpful. He even assisted us in finding a short-notice accomodation for a member of our party arriving earlier. There were six of in the house, two kids, two parents, and two grandparents, and we all had ample room. The children's games were a nice touch, and the house in excellent condition. I would highly recommend staying here!
House is situated beside a great park which is ideal for young and old kids.The town is just a few minutes walk from the house.The town has everything you need from a supermarket, clothes shops!!!!!!! and good eating places.The house itself is a great size for a family or group of friends,immaculate inside and out and has all the mod cons you need.Owner is only a phone call away if you need any advice or help.The town of Kelso which isnt far is a must especially tea nad scones at Floors castle.
