“Excellent Holiday Apartment”
Reviewed 2 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

After our initial difficulty in finding the apartment due to incomplete address details (correct address should read as follows: Apartment 5, Glentress Apartments, off Chiefswood Road, Melrose, TD6 9JY) we had an excellent weekend. The owner had left a lovely "Welcome Pack" for us containing Bread, Milk, Porridge Oats, Biscuits, Home Baked Cake and fresh Farm Eggs. The apartment is well stocked with WiFi, Gas Central Heating, TV, Microwave, Fridge, Dishwasher, Freezer, Coffee Maker, family bathroom and 2 bedrooms (one en suite) which were both large and with good Wardrobe storage space etc. The beds were also very comfortable enabling a good nights sleep to be had, The apartment was very clean and tidy and VERY impressive. It has an open plan Living Room, Dining area and Kitchen which comfortably allows space for people to lounge in comfort. Laura, the owner, was very helpful and after checking it was OK to BBQ on the Saturday evening brought additional chairs for us to enable friends to join us. She also allows 1 quiet friendly dog to stay in the apartment which was another reason we chose it, as we have a labrador. Overall the 4 people who stayed in the apartment and the 6 friends who joined us for the BBQ were all very impressed with the apartment and we will definitely try and book it again next year when we hope to return to Melrose. A definite must if you want to spend a comfortable stay in Melrose with friends in well provided and comfortable accommodation. THANK YOU, LAURA!!!

“Beautiful Cottage”
Reviewed 26 February 2017 for a stay in December 2016

My friend and I stayed at No.5 for a weekend in December. Laura has created a wonderfully welcoming, luxurious and well equipped property. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. During the day we walking around the Eildon hills which are right on the doorstep and at night we took the short walk(10 mins) into town for something to eat(but the chip shop does deliver too!!).The complex has plenty of parking and in a quiet area. Laura is so helpful and welcoming and left us a lovely welcome package. We loved staying at number 5 and will definitely be staying again!

“attention to detail”
Reviewed 14 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We have rented holiday accommodation over many years both in the U K and abroad but none of our previous rentals reached the extremely high standards of Lavender no5.
It was spotless and spacious with many fine details. Laura also provided a selection of essentials and goodies including a home baked fruit cake.
Melrose is an attractive small town with many shops cafes and restaurants and is an ideal centre for exploring the area. The abbey and the river Tweed are added attractions. Laura also has another property in the town just minutes from the abbey.
