This is a truly wonderful place. We would give it ten stars if we could! The bed was large and extremely comfortable, the room and ensuite spacious and beautifully decorated. It was excellent having independent access through the garage and access to a large living area, cooking facilities and billiard table (not that we had time to play!) Janet and Allen are very warm and friendly people who made us feel at our ease straight away. They know the area very well and gave us excellent recommendations for the best pubs and restaurants. We enjoyed chatting with them, and wish we could have stayed longer. The very attractive town centre is only a short walk from their place, through a lovely park and across the river. This is a fantastic place to stay for anyone wanting to explore the Scottish Borders and the beautiful ruined abbeys and countryside of this area.

our hosts could not improve ,they are the best and a great example for scottish hospitality
We had a fabulous time staying with Allan and Janet. They were excellent hosts, and went the extra mile to make sure we had a comfortable stay. We can't wait till our next stay :) thanks.
Allan and Janet made us feel incredibly welcome throughout our stay- from fresh lemon drizzle cake in the room on arrival to fresh fruit in the fridge, nothing was too much trouble. The room was well-furnished, clean and comfortable. We'd definitely stay again!
Allan and Janet's place was absolutely amazing! The privacy, the space, the decor, we really couldn't have asked for anything better. The breakfast selection in the morning was plentiful and the fresh fruit was a really welcomed treat. We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at their place and will definitely be back again. The town of Kelso was such a beautiful little town and thanks to their recommendation we went to Alnwick Castle and had one of the most amazing days! Great hosts, highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in the Scottish Borders area.
Janet & Allan are great hosts, nothing was to much trouble. They are they if you require anything, but not hovering about you! The bedroom and bathroom are spotless and have all you require, the bonus is their games room which you have the use of. There is a full sized billiard table and dart board and a kitchenette with fridge for the beers. Once you have enough of the games there is a good sized T.V. Sandie and I really enjoyed our stay here and hope to return when next in the area.
What Dave loved about your listing:
Nothing to add. You are both doing a great job and we hope our guests feel the same about our two little holiday units!
Allan and Janet are very friendly and relaxed, and made us feel very welcome. Their facilities - the self-contained bedroom and bathroom, and the separate kitchen, shower room and fabulous games room (full sized-snooker table) are outstanding - everything spotlessly clean, comfortable, and absolutely everything considered, from the drinks in the fridge and the superb breakfast, to the lovely toiletries in the bathroom, fresh flowers in the bedroom - total pampering! Highly recommended.

You couldn't possibly improve, you have everything to a T!
From initial contact to the final cheerio we found Allan and Janet’s a very personable couple who always remain available should you need local advice to help a stay run smoothly. The accommodation is comfortable, quiet, clean and modern and we both slept effortlessly in a comfy super-king bed. There is a TV in the room as well as the games room should you have time: Extra storage for bikes/luggage if needed. The delicious help yourself breakfast in the games room truly sets you up for the day. We really can’t fault this place and thoroughly enjoyed our stay - we just wish we could of stayed on a bit longer. Thank you!
What Rod loved about your listing:
I felt that I had know both hosts for 4 years, not 4 days. Attention to detail in the room is fab. The cost of the room, breakfast and games room is great value.

Was the room TV mentioned? Were eggs for breakfast mentioned?
