Customer Reviews of Pinewood House, nr Kelso, sleeps 16
1st comment: Lovely, spacious, comfortable house. The jacuzzi and pool were a well used bonus. Dec 2011.
2nd comment: This is a lovely place to stay and we had a great time there. The property is so large that we could spread out and not feel on top of each other but the rooms are large enough so that we could all get together and watch a film or play games! The hospitality was good and the living rooms were comfortable and cosy. The kitchen are well equipped but finding where utensils were stored took some working out. The hot tub and rapid river spa was brilliant for all ages. There are lovely walks close by and excellent places to visit within a short drive. Garden is also fantastic. Don’t want to recommend this gem any further as it might get booked up too quickly! Oct 2011.
3rd comment: First impression of the exterior of the house was disappointing at first, but the interior was clean tidy and well equipped and we had a warm welcome from Jean, the caretaker. The garden was excellent and well tended. Aug 2011.

5th comment: Good value for money. Nov 2010.

7th comment: House was a fantastic size, everything you needed was supplied, pool and spa are amazing. July 2010.
8th comment: The property is fantastic space for a large group. There were 16 of there and there was ample space for us all without us tripping over each other. Feb 2010.
9th comment: Excellent accomodation, every need was catered for. We went to celebrate my mothers 60th birthday and as it was December we had a mini Christmas. We could not believe how well stocked the kitchen was. Childrens needs were also more than met with a fantastic selection of games and toys. Dec 2009.
10th comment: The accommodation was very comfortable and suitable for large groups of people. It was close enough to Edinburgh for a visit to the Tattoo. ( We hired a Mini-bus from Cook’s Taxis in Kelso). Aug 2009.
