A few disappointments regarding the property.

  • 3 of 5

The description of the unit states it has been finished to a high standard, which is hardly the case. The shower stall has no shelf to sit anything on, no hooks in bathroom for towels or robes, the en-suite toilet loud when flushed, then flushes when the tap is on, no hanging in double room, just in hall opposite, which is not deep enough, so clothing gets caught in sliding doors.

Upon arrival, we were told that the bbq had fallen apart and been removed, but no replacement had arrived. One toilet roll in each toilet, both of which were not full rolls, with no stock to draw from, so bought a few rolls , also unable to find any dishwasher pucks , so only able to stack machine.

The unit was clean and the location was perfect for our needs. Bothwell is a lovely town, with lots of dining and shopping choices.

It seems to me that it wouldnt take much time, money or effort to address all of what i have complained about, so i hope you give it some thought, rather than just dismiss it

Perfect location, felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was for a week. It instantly felt like home to us and our 12 year old daughter. Aunt Patricia greeted us to point out all the amenities. The backyard and large windows greeted us every morning and evening. Good TV and Wifi. The TVs in the bedrooms were an asset when different family members wanted to watch different things.

Bothwell was a friendly safe little town. It was nice to be out of tourist bustle of the cities. We shopped at the Co-op which was a 5 minute walk away. The restaurants were delicious and reasonably priced. We like the central geography as we could drive to Killwinning, Peebles, Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Highlands. When we went to Edinburgh, we parked at the Central Car Park just outside of town and took the tram into the city centre.

Thanks again to Karen and Patricia for the lovely stay!!

Lovely apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We booked our stay to allow us to attend the Scottish Kuk Sool Won championship in Motherwell. We couldn't be more pleased with the standard of the accommodation, the location, the welcome and helpfulness of owner/representative.

We had a small problem with the boiler at 11pm, so were not hopeful for a fix before we had to leave the following day. However a quick text to Patricia soon had us back up and running.

Will certainly book in again when next in the area.

Lovely property in a fantastic position

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 3 adults meeting up for a girly catch up weekend. The apartment has been put together well with good quality fittings and a well equipped kitchen. There was plenty of space for three of us but I think a fourth adult would be a little bit of a squeeze as there is only a 3 seater sofa in the living area.

There is a train station 5 minutes drive away which gets you into Glasgow in 15mins. On the way you pass a couple of supermarkets so can pick up everything you need.

The traffic noise is a little loud in the bedrooms but this was made worse for us as the motorway was shut that weekend!

All in all, this is a lovely apartment that I would recommend to anyone needing a base to visit Glasgow and the surrounding areas.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in my apartment. I have just had new windows installed this Friday, that have special acoustic glass installed to cut down on any traffic noise. Hope you keep us in mind for any future trips you may have to Scotland. Thanks Karen

Great experience with this apartment. Bothwell is a gorgeous little village and the apartment was perfect for our family of two adults and two children. The apartment is modern, clean and furnished with every modern convenience. It was a pleasure to deal with Karen and Patricia and I would highly recommend this property.

Excellent location, very hospitable hosts.

  • 4 of 5

The flat is very conveniently located on Bothwell high street, right between two of the best Italian restaurants in the area. The fact that everything is in one level is oerfect if you are traveling with anyone with mobility issues, or an elderley parrent. Excellent WiFi, and everything you need for a comfortable stay. The main bathroom is very small but recently renovated.
