We were part of the group of friends from the previous review! I would totally agree with all the previous comments made in that review. A lovely house, spotless clean, and an ideal get away from it all for a few days! Hope to visit again

“Very Happy New Year”
Reviewed 5 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

We were three families (10 adults in all) who decided to see the new year in at Borthwick View. We arrived on 31st December and stayed until 3rd January. The house is set in the beautiful Borders countryside where we had a couple of lovely circular walks from the house on two mornings to blow the cobwebs away! Borthwick View is ideal for a quiet getaway to be enjoyed by family and friends.

The accommodation was excellent and there was plenty of room for us all, two en-suite bedrooms, with a further three bedrooms and a full bathroom. There is a lovely lounge where we spent many hours playing games and watching movies. The kitchen was ideal together with a dining area and a separate dining room, which we made good use of!

The booking process was dealt with by Gill and I did it with ease by email and telephone. When we arrived at the property we were met by Mike who showed us around the house and how to use the televisions etc. Mike was also on call next door if we needed him which was good to know but he didn't disturb us while we were there and I spoke to him on the morning we left. Both Gill and Mike were a pleasure to deal with.

“Saved our summer holiday”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had been driven out by bats at a booked location (no connection to this owner) and managed to get this fixed up at the last minute. This saved us having to end our holiday in Scotland. This is an ultra-clean bungalow, easily accessed 5 miles from Hawick. The owner was fantastic getting us sorted out and met us at the property.

The service is professional and I'd give the following review on the detail. The property let is the right part of the building in the main photo. Everything is beautifully clean. We had some minor issues, which I am sure have been repaired. All the carpets are white, which requires extra care in removing outside footwear.

We felt that the kitchen pans and utensils were too decorative and small for proper evening cooking for accommodation which can provide for 10. The internet is adequate for slow basic browsing only. There is no mobile phone connection, which for us was a plus.

The curtains in the bedrooms are not black-out type.

There is an additional £100 deposit against utilities for the week, refundable. In July we used up 80% of this amount, despite being out every day.

Hand over was easy.

Overall, 5 stars, as the owner is exceptionally professional and helpful.

“Fantastic house and very great host!”
Reviewed 24 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015
2
people found this review helpful

We rented the house for a week for my family.

The house is fantastic and finished to a high standard. It is also in a beautiful location and exactly what you need if looking for some R&R.

The host is nearby if anything is a miss and was very welcoming and accommodating. My family were actually quite sad to leave after the week so a true sign that they really enjoyed their stay.

Internet was a bit temperamental and no mobile phone reception but that an issue with the surrounding area so can't put the house at fault for that plus I think my family enjoyed a week without any calls!

All round top marks!
