I recently stayed at Cringletie House to celebrate my wife's birthday. We stayed on a Sunday night for the tasting menu, where you take dinner with matching wines and have the accommodation for the night 'thrown in' for free. The hotel is suitably grand without being over the top - it is a very nice country house. From arrival when... More

We have stayed at Cringletie House twice in the past 12 months,...August 6th 2014 and 6th May 2015. We see some changes, not always for the best, but on both occasions have really enjoyed our time. The hotel has become less formal perhaps to co-exist with hotels in Peebles town centre and to be less stuffy. This appears to be... More

If you are passing do pop in for tea, it is lovely. Great grounds and lovely rooms. Staff couldn't be more helpful and fab cakes. Brilliant loos too and that is a very important part of a day out, nothing worse that a good venue but yukky toilets! ! Susan Third

We had a very good time at Cringletie, and would highly recommend it. The food was excellent and the staff very professional. The room was a treat, not too hot or cold. Like the bear's porridge It was just right, and that goes for the bed as well. Very comfortable, and turned down ready whilst at dinner - excellent service.... More

The bed in our room evidently had only a mattress cover over the box springs because there was NO mattress on the bed. When we were checking out, I brought it to the attention of the person at the desk, who appeared to be the co-owner, I was told that it was not possible for there to be no mattress.... More

My wife took me for Father's Day afternoon tea - only a day late! - and it was a real treat. The setting of this lovely house is beautiful and relaxing. Our afternoon tea was excellent in every respect. This was our first visit there following recommendations from friends and it certainly will not be the last. I cannot on... More

A Wedding at Cringletie - wonderful, stuff dreams really are made of. Staff friendly and helpful both in pre-wedding arrangements and 'on the day'. A truly super occasion, food and service were superb.

Dinner for two on a Friday night (didn't stay, but want to now!), from the moment we arrived (our fist visit) we were made to feel special, being met at the hotel entrance and being shown to the restaurant table is a really nice touch. The menu is not overly extensive but has a good mix of meet and fish... More

We went to celebrate a special birthday and had the Sunday evening Tasting experience - amazing. We were greeted at the door, shown to the room my mum was staying in, then taken to the bar for apperitifs, before being taken to the dining room for the main part of the evening. Fantastic food - lovely wines to complement every... More

From other reviews of similar locations, keen readers will know by now that I am an Afternoon Tea aficionado; so I was extremely keen to experience the offering (via voucher) here at this 4 Star hotel. Even as a local, it was the first time I had been to Cringletie and with the much lauded food and presentation, we anticipated... More
