Visiting Scotland was a wonderful experience. We mostly enjoyed very nice weather and there is so much to see and visit locally : whether you prefer the seaside or the moors, you will be satisfied. We got our fill of culture and history and we were lucky enough to experience the Edinburgh festival. So truly a place which will please you whatever you enjoy. The apartment is very sweet and ideally located with windows viewing the town plaza. If you do not have a car you are not isolated! It was great being able to simply sit and watch the village next to a fireplace. And there is a great restaurant just nearby where you can eat fish and chips (why else come to the United Kingdom?). It pleases the whole family. I will definitely recommend and will hopefully return an other time!

Fabulous Place

  • 5 of 5

Melrose is our favorite place in the Borders and 25 Market Square is a great place to stay. Drinking my morning coffee and watching the activity in the square was a favorite pastime. The townhouse is well equipped and very comfortable. Easy walk to the butcher, green grocer, and COOP. Looking at the Abbey each morning from the upper bedrooms was a plus. We will return.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything (and the rest!) required for a relaxing week in one of the finest of the Borders' towns. It is furnished and equipped to a very high standard, and I would recommend it to anyone seeking a stress-free and relaxing week.

Melrose is perfectly placed for accessing the other abbey towns, walks along the Tweed and great wee shops.

Highly recommended!
