The hotel has clearly seen better days and although the staff are very friendly it is still found to be wanting. The room we stopped in was tired, the radiators required bleeding and even the internal phone did not work. The restaurant closes at 20:30 hrs ? And even the cocktail bar which is to all purposes the main bar... More

My husband booked this as a surprise for my 60th birthday prior to a big celebration with family in The Lake District. Check in went smoothly but our room was dated with stains on the carpets. Our thoughts were "We only require the room for sleeping and if there is a clean bed and if everything else is good then... More

Hotel was once a fabulous retreat but nowadays it is a bit tired and dated. The staff however are fantastic and do all they could to make our stay comfortable. The restaurant has a very limited evening meal menu from which we were lucky enough to find something we liked. A guest at the next table left as she couldn't... More

My wife and i have just spent one nights bed and breakfast at this hotel and totally enjoyed the experience. We got the booking very cheaply through a promotion in a national newspaper. I had seen a tip so ask for an upgrade when booking in. Great advice!! For an extra £20 we were given one of the hotels "feature... More

I visited peebles Hydro late October I had originally booked in the Park Hotel Peebles but changed due to an itison deal I was so disappointed, the room was very tired and the shower was old and sounded like a numatic drill! The phone didn't work and this was inconvenient as I had to trail to reception if I had... More

Built in the 1870s this hotel has an air of Victorian elegance and is a welcome contrast to the usual sterile square box hotel that frequently prevails. But if you want the hotel to be spotless with every wall recently painted and the carpets to be brand new deep pile then you will be disappointed. A multi million upgrade is... More

We have stayed at Peebles Hydro with our friends and family annually for the past 7 years and were disappointed with our latest visit. We have 3 children aged between 3 and 9 (our friends have 2). They have always loved the kids club at night (while we were having our meal in the restaurant) but the hotel have reduced... More

Inside the hotel is good with the bedroom on the third floor very tired and in need of TLC. Staff were very friendly and service was good too. Best thing about our stay was the breakfast which was a buffet with plenty of choices.

We were here for a conference event overnight. It's a hotel with the most fabulous location and stunning views from lounges and other public spaces. I didn't use the spa and gym but colleagues who did remarked that the gym equipment seriously needs some updating. This grand hotel does need the makeover which the new owners are planning. My room... More

I expected better from this hotel knowing that family and friends used to stay there some time ago albeit perhaps 10 yrs ago. Sadly I cant recommend it although it has loads of potential. the drive up is the best part of the experience. Within a beautiful setting it is a very nice building however it requires modernizing and more... More

Thanks Duna109 for your comments. The Hydro has sadly been rather neglected for years and as the proud new owners we fully intend to restore this grand old building to the way it once was. It would be lovely if you could return in the future to enjoy the improvements. More
