Customer Reviews of Braehill Luxury Cottage, Scottish Borders - Sleeps 12
1st comment: Even better than the photos on the web page. April 2012.
2nd comment: Wow factor as soon as you enter! Can easily have 12 staying with out been on top of one another. Instruction manuals for everything left out for you. All the beds are sooo comfortable. Pool and games room a added bonus and great to use. Plenty of tv’s so no arguing. Have booked again for a week, all the family going. Tesco store 10 minutes away, so easy enough to drive to or get it delivered. Can’t praise it enough. Jan 2012.
3rd comment: A lovely house, perfect for a large group of family and friends, beautiful views and walks. The only problem which we came across was the smell from the heating in the bathroom beside games room was very strong. It was quiet strong in two bedrooms above. My friends didn’t like to say or I would have said to owner who were more than helpful would go back again. Jan 2012.
4th comment: Amazing house, definately has the wow factor. Beatiful views. Lots of facilities so there is plenty to do even when the weather is poor. Can’t wait to return. Dec 2011.
5th comment: Beautiful property much bigger than looks in pictures. Games room and indoor swimming pool were added extra that were used constantly over the weekend we stayed here. Overall would definitely recommend. Dec 2011.
6th comment: The house was even better than expected it was absolutely fabulous. If you take enough food with you there is no need to leave the property at all, as all your entertainment needs are catered for from the swimming pool to the games room as well as televisions everywhere! The photos do not do it justice. Excellent accommodation. Oct 2011.
