We recently stayed at the Peebles Hydro for dinner, bed and breakfast using an Itison voucher. Having stayed at the hotel on several occasions mainly at conferences prior to retirement, we were looking forward to returning. Lots has been said by previous reviewers concerning the ongoing refurbishment being undertaken by the new owners, we were not fortunate enough to be... More

Thanks for your feedback sweethartgla. We were pleased to hear that you had enjoyed your visit. Sorry about the positioning of your room. Due to the age and scale of the building the rooms are of many different shapes and sizes and some will face towards the rear. Glad it didn't spoil your enjoyment of our great hotel and location.

I have just returned from an overnight stay at this hotel, although the hotel is very tired they are doing a lot to improve it. The leisure facilities are good, although there are no seats around the pool to chill out. The food was good, the staff are very friendly, Leanne at reception was very helpful. I would certainly recommend... More

Think The Overlook Hotel from The Shining meets genteel shabbiness and you will get a picture of what the current state of play is at Peebles Hydro. An imposing building set in beautiful grounds, in the lovely wee town of Peebles, the Hydro is obviously undergoing a major set of renovations. We stayed there for one night with a special... More

Changes have been made every time we go and you can really see the hard work being put into this great hotel. Gone is the stuffiness of formal dining and a better, more relaxed and modern feeling.

The Peebles Hydro was a great location a few decades ago and now after years of neglect and falling standards, the new owners (Crieff Hydro) are faced with the daunting task of restoring its former glory. Stayed there recently for 3 days over a weekend and a promising refurbishment is underway but the jury is out about the outcome. The... More

Thank you for your review DLFD. There is lots of work to be done and we are pleased with the results so far, but many finishing touches to be put in place. It will take a bit of time, but e are confident that The Hydro will be one of the 'places to be' again soon enough. More
