Back at this beautiful flat for the fourth time, It is a fantastic place to stay and has fabulous views across the square and we were happy to sit and watch the world go by. Everything is right on the doorstep and the flat has everything you could possibly need. Cant wait to return. Love it :D

“A lovely place to stay in a lovely town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The flat has everything you need for a pleasant stay . We stayed here with our two daughters (19 and 14 ) they really brightened up when the saw the free wifi.
The bedrooms were ample for us . Kitchen was fully fitted and just sitting at the table with a glass of wine watching the Kelso Square in the evening was better than the telly !!

“View and ambience plus class!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Stayed in The Square for a three day break recently and was so impressed by what was on offer! Lovely view over the beautiful square in the centre of town, complemented by the simple yet superbly tasteful surroundings of the apartment. Loads of space for four people although there were only the two of us and all mod cons that you would ever need. Highly recommended.

“Lovely flat and location - perfect for the Border Abbeys Way!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

This is a very good holiday apartment, superbly located above the square at Kelso (above the hairdressers which is above Dorothy Perkins- so be aware there are two storeys of steps to climb).
The photographs on the web site are accurate- it is light and airy, with a great view of the town square beneath and town hall opposite.
The beds are comfortable, and there is ample hot water, with the option to boost the heating or hot water at any time.
The property is also ideal for walking the Border Abbeys Way which passes along the pavement outside the front door (this is a 64 mile walk which we completed using a car and buses in 5 day stages)
The slight downsides: We found the kitchen missed a vegetable peeler and cutting knives for food preparation. We also found a lack of instructions as to how to operate a somewhat complex cooker, and what to do with rubbish. ( In post holiday feedback to the owners they have assured they will fix these issues). In summer, suggest light sleepers use the back bedroom, as the square beneath the front window is cobbled, and can be noisy with traffic if the window open for cool air- especially the street cleaner lorry at 7.00 a.m. Also be aware that the bedrooms only have venetian blinds, and these do not cut out the early morning daylight- you might want to take eye covers.

Liked best: How the decorations are hand picked for the property, not someone's left over unwanted pieces.
Liked least: Parking can sometimes be a minor challenge during the day but evenings are not a problem.
