“Not great.”

Immediately disappointing when going through the door. Brown, beige and dingy.
An enormous hideous triffid type plant in the living room. I would not describe it as tastefully and comfortably furnished.
Fire back loose, no light on the fire, so all it was - just a noisy fan heater. There is central heating which worked OK once I figured it out. Having said that, when adjusting the heating to over-ride the timer, the front cover fell off, exposing the electrical wiring.
A loose light fitting in the kitchen, discovered when replacing a bulb that was out.
A few other loosely fitting electrical sockets.
The back door handle was broken on the inside so I had to find a screw to fix it so I could open and close the door without the handle spinning round.
It was handy having a downstairs toilet although the door made a loud bang when closing and there were several large holes in the wall where heating pipes were. It appears the boiler had been recently installed - but not finished off.
Upstairs toilet - be careful the towel rail does not burn your knee. No toilet roll holder.
Main bedroom very noisy floor boards.
Having said all those negative things, the area is smashing and the location of the house is very handy - walking distance to town.
The place itself was clean and good clean linen provided. Beds comfortable. Neighbours were fine - quiet.
The house is on a fairly busy road so can be a bit noisy at night.
I would not describe it as 4-star.
Noisy fridge freezer.
Never saw the owner at all but that was not a problem I suppose.

Management Response

The property photos clearly show the colour scheme in Monabri, which is light& neutralto suit everyones taste. The central heating boiler is serviced every 12 months & we have a gas safe certificate. The heating is on timer & it's stated clearly to press the override button for constant heat, there is no reason to fiddle with the boiler & open up the bottom! The electrics are all passed & i'm unaware of loose sockets!! As for a creaking floor board, that's unconstuctive picking!

“Practical sound accommodation in a great town centre location”
Reviewed 11 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

We came for a weekend mountain biking at Glentress and booked Monabri only the day before. Good straightforward accommodation just off the edge of Peebles town centre this self catering house had all the basics for a comfortable stay. Despite its proximity to the town parking on the street outside wasn't a problem either.
