“Very comfortable stay”
Reviewed May 16, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a great stay at the Old Pickle House and found it exactly as described. It is central in Kelso so you can access shops and pubs, plus Floors castle on foot. Despite the central location, it is on a side street so no traffic noise. We found it really well equipped and well decorated. As a party of 8, we did make use of the pull down bed in the sitting room, and those who slept there commented that it was really comfortable. The only very minor points were poor water pressure in the down stairs shower room, and a slightly odd issue with the fridge - if anything is put on the bottom glass shelf, then the salad drawers become completely inoperable - you just cant open them! I should say these two fairly minor points did not spoil what was a very pleasant stay.

“I wanted to stay longer...”
Reviewed February 24, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I recently visited The Old Pickle House with a group of friends. I was delighted with the property's central location: a few steps from the town's beautiful square and a stone's throw from pubs, shops, restaurants and the historic Kelso Abbey.
The property itself is spacious, spotlessly clean, well-equipped and beautifully decorated. Its style is a great balance of traditional, tasteful and quirky. I especially loved the dining area with its "booth style" seating. I had a wonderful time and I hope to visit again very soon.

“Great weekend”
Reviewed October 12, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed the last weekend in September - the accommodation was to a high standard there were lovely wee touches Fresh Flowers on the table and candles throughout the house There were 3 couples and we had plenty of space within the flat. We loved having the large dining table to have breakfast together and Sunday dinner
The house is just off the main square but is quiet - there were lots of lovely pubs, eating places and shops within walking distance
Ideal position for a number of golf courses

“Comfortable and convenient”
Reviewed October 12, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Lovely house in central Kelso, well equipped and very comfortable. Enormous beds in the two large bedrooms (bunk beds in the third bedroom) and a beautiful bathroom. The stairs may be a problem for some - the living accommodation is on the first floor and the three bedrooms and bathroom on the second - but that wasn't an issue for us. No garden but there is a roof terrace accessed by a loft-type ladder. Excellent communication from the owners prior to our stay. Recommended.

“Quaint Property”
Reviewed August 31, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A fantastic property very well converted.. Tastefully decorated with top quality furniture and fittings, candles and fresh flowers.. Would recommend to all. Unfortunately not suitable for disabled persons. The ladders to the roof garden were a bit difficult but well worth the climb for the view.

Loved our stay at The Old Pickle House in Kelso! Clean and comfortable just off the town square! Very short walking distance to lots of neat shops and restaurants as well as Floors Castle and the River Tweed. Beautiful area!
