I am originally from Hamilton in Scotland but now live with my family in Nottingham. This is our holiday home which we totally renovated a few years ago and use it to visit our family in Scotland.
Karen McLaughlin purchased this apartment in 2010
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.
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.
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.
What an adorable place to stay. The accommodation is perfect for a short term let. Excellently appointed with clean, fresh, modern decor. I was visiting for business and having access to wifi was a real bonus! Booking process was very straightforward and I was kept well informed throughout the process, I found Karen very pleasant and easy to deal with. I am happy to highly recommend this property.
Location was ideal. The kitchen needs to be thoroughly cleaned and also the fridge/freezer doors need hanging on the opposite side due to the small kitchen. Had issues with both toilets in the property. Shower needs a door or curtain as it floods the shower room. Only comfortable seating for three people. Food thrown over wall from neighbouring restaurant.
I loved staying in this Bothwell apartment. It was cozy and comfortable and had all the amenities I needed. I’m just sorry I was unable to enjoy the lovely back patio, as it was raining most of the time I was there. The apartment is clean and bright – modern appliances and décor. There is a comfortable living area adjacent to the kitchen. Since I was the only one staying, the twin bedroom was used for luggage storage. The master bedroom was very comfortable.
Location: The apartment is conveniently located outside Glasgow where it’s easy to hop on the highway for day trips to surrounding areas. Bothwell Castle is just a mile or so away and is a nice walk (or run, as I did). Next to Bothwell Castle is the River Clyde, which is gorgeous. If you are a runner – this is a great location for a run along the river. Quiet, beautiful and on a trail. Bothwell Castle is very interesting and the employee who was there – I believe his name was John – was very knowledgeable in its history and the area.
Restaurants: I only ate at the Italian restaurant next door as I utilized the kitchen and cooked meals and breakfast. The restaurant has good prices and friendly staff and the food was great. There is a Tesco Market within walking distance (the parking lot is a bit small).
Customer Service: Karen was great to work with. I’m in the U.S. and so we did our correspondence via email. She explained the whole process and the schedule of payments. Working through Homeaway was a good experience as well. Everything was very easy to handle. I arrived later in the day and was met by Karen’s Aunt Tricia and Karen’s mum. They welcomed me in and showed me around. You haven’t had a walkthrough until Aunt Tricia shows you the trick with the toilet in the master bedroom! Tricia and Karen were also very responsive when I thought the washing machine was not working. I didn’t know you had to set it to the “0” at the top of the dial. (The settings are different than other washers I’ve used in the UK and very different from mine in the U.S.). Tricia checked and left a note explaining how to turn it on. Thank you Tricia and Karen for dealing with this American tourist!
I live in a very similar “granny cottage” in the U.S. that is small and cozy. I really felt like this was my home away from home. Thank you Karen for being a gracious host. Thank you Aunt Tricia for helping me with the washing machine! My only regret is that I didn’t get to meet the fabulous neighbors.
