The Monorene is a traditional Guest House set in the heart of Galashiels, just a stones throw from the train station where you can jump on a train and be in Edinburgh within an hour. The guest house features 6 rooms, with a mix of singles, twin and family rooms. All the rooms are well appointed, clean and tidy, and have all the facilities you would expect. Guests will receive a warm welcome and have use of free parking, free wifi, a home cooked breakfast and much more. Galshiels is a small quiet town located perfectly for day trips to Edinburgh, without having to pay the high prices of city accommodation, but close enough to make travel to the city a breeze. Train tickets to Edinburgh are just £10. The owners pride themselves on the cleanliness and warmth of the accommodation, making sure each and every guest enjoys their stay. Your day will get off to a fantastic start with a delicious home cooked breakfast. The Borders is full of historic places to visit: Ancient Abbeys, Stately homes, Museums, Roman Ruins and most of all the most beautiful scenery that can be found in Scotland. The Scottish Borders is also home to Freedom of the Fairways where you can visit up to 21 of the friendliest Golf Courses in Scotland with Golf passports from £75 for 3 days and £110 for 5 days. (Passports are valid from 1st April to 31st October) Whatever your interests, you'll find something in the Borders, and at the comfortable Monorene Guesthouse, your bed and breakfast stay will be an enjoyable, relaxing experience.
