I stayed in this flat for 3 nights over Easter with my mother and my 2 1/2 year old. It was comfortable and warm. New kitchen and relatively new bathroom with a super shower - no bath though. Great location and ample on street parking. Would definitely stay here again if in Peebles.
Thank you Dawn. Please contact us again in the future if you return to Peebles.

I enjoyed staying in this warm, clean, and inviting apartment. It had many nice touches to make it feel more like home. The decorations and artwork were lovely and interesting, and many books and brochures were available to find out more about the Borders area. The property was especially nice since it was located right near a lovely stream that connected to the Tweed, and it was also just minutes from the bus that went to Edinburgh. One good feature was the enclosed shower in the bath, with plenty of hot water. The kitchen was well-equipped and the owner had left fresh flowers in the lounge to make it even more welcoming. I would definitely stay at this charming apartment again!
Thank you - we do try to ensure that our guests enjoy their stay in our apartment and are grateful when they appreciate the 'finishing touches'.
