A lovely hotel with very friendly staff, the rooms were of good decor with a comfortable bed. Hotel bar well stocked and restaurant very good indeed. The staff at reception, in the restaurant and in the breakfast room were all extremely friendly, helpful and cheerful. This hotel is perfect for a couple wanting to get away from daily routine, there... More

We have dined at Venlaw on a few occasions and have always enjoyed our meals but on a recent visit we were disappointed. Our seat in the dining room was 'out on a limb' away from the other diners in the main part, not sure why we were put there as the dining room was not busy. We enjoyed our... More

Having spent the previous night in the over rated Cringlettie House Hotel it was a joy to sample some genuine down to earth service with a smile. The Hotel is more traditional and maybe not as plush but it makes up for this with a nice warm atmosphere. The bedroom we had "Glengoyne" was twice the size of our room... More

A lovely peaceful location. The room was fantastic with 4 poster bed, huge bath in a separate room to the lovely walk in shower. Food at dinner was perfect as was the wine and the service. Staff were very friendly and made our stay perfect. The library bar with board games and a dvd library is a treat. Breakfast was... More

My husband and I tried to book several hotels in the Peebles area for our Anniversary but they were all full. This in fact turned out to be a blessing as we stumbled across Castle Venlaw. What a treat this turned out to be. The welcome we received from the staff was amazing. Each person we came across was so... More

This is a building of character and we had a spacious four poster room with a large bath and shower in the bathroom, nicely decorated and in good order. Sadly the rest of our stay did not live up to the quality of the room. The young staff in the bar needed training, we went down for a drink before... More

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of August. A beautiful place. The staff were lovely and the food and service were fantastic. Great value. Our room was really comfortable and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.

We went here on Saturday night as we had been told that the meals were good and we were not disappointed Interesting and varied menu and good wine list Service was very good also and friendly nice dining room and bar area. The dining room was quite full which is always a good sign Will go back.

What a place to enjoy a different experience! For the past 2 nights had a massive 4 poster bed in a large, comfortable room with terrific views. Loved the library (also the bar). Staff very friendly and helpful with local information and can't do enough service-wise. Had a superb meal last night - venison with dauphinoise potatoes and crepes suzettes.... More

Hi Helen T, It's great to hear that our team were helpful - we do try our best! Good to hear that you enjoyed your meal - the venison that we have on our menu is one of our most popular dishes, along with the crepe suzette. Apologies for no fresh fruit - this has now been addressed at breakfast... More

We stayed for one night in August and were pleasantly surprised at how good value this room was compared to others in the area. We didn't spend too much time at the hotel for our stay and can't comment on the food as we ate out and left too early for breakfast, but did enjoy the old fashioned bar area... More

Hi grubs77! Thank you for your review. Good to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Apologies that we don't have a lift, I'm afraid with the age and design of the interior of the building, it won't allow for one. Yes, during stormy weather the top floor can be a tad noisy - apologies for this. We do try to... More
