This is a beautifully decorated, very nicely furnished and spotlessly clean house. Nice little touches of fresh flowers, chocolates and candles. Located just off the central square in Kelso, it is well placed for local walks and tours of abbeys and pretty villages. We took time to enjoy the roof terrace, but care has to be taken accessing it! The house is very well equipped. There is a bathroom upstairs, but just be aware that the other shower room is 2 flights down from the bedrooms. Any communication over the booking was dealt with in a very friendly and efficient manner. I would certainly recommend this accommodation very highly.
Myself and two friends stayed at The Old Pickle House for a weekend and to say the apartment has everything you need is an understatement, every item you have in your home is here, the owners even supply ice for you to get your holiday started!
The apartment is spotlessly clean and they also provide bed linen and towels. Another highlight of the apartment is the central location, its within walking distance of Floors Castle and there are a number of very good restaurants and pubs on your doorstep.
Comfortable and cozy spacious flat with lovely bedding and lots of good quality towels. Kitchen well equipped with everything required.
Great central location and quiet at night which is great.....cannot wait to return to Kelso which is a friendly and good shopping town and would definitely book The Old Pickle House. Cobblers best Sunday lunch ever.....not to be missed.
We have just had the a lovely weekend at The Old Pickle House. Fabulous accommodation, spotlessly clean and very home from home. Facilities great, had everything you could need. We went with friends and my daughter and we all loved it. It was that good we booked while we were there to return in May. The Wagoon restaurant was excellent and worth a visit. Also the Kelso Tandoori for take away. Thank you for a lovely stay. Cannot wait to return in May again
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 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.
