We stayed here for a couple of nights recently and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The public rooms are very comfortable and inviting. Lovely to have breakfast in a room overlooking the town. The food was excellent - compliments to the chef. We had a delicious dinner in the restaurant. However we felt our room, although fairly spacious... More

This was our 2nd visit to the Castle Venlaw Hotel. We received a fantastic welcome on arrival. The rooms are all named after whiskies and we stayed in the Glenturret room this time around. The room had a huge 4 poster bed, a large corner sofa and tv, a separate shower room and separate bathroom. Complimentary toiletries and bath robes... More

The hotel itself is warm and cosy and well decorated. The staff friendly. It's in a fantastic location and you can access multiple walking routes with ease, a real bonus. Unfortunately the food was a key down, from reviews read we expected a lot more. The menu is a confusing muddle of pub style grub. I don't have anything against... More

We visited Castle Venlaw during a spontaneous romantic week driving through Scotland, and the location delivered. We experienced lovely grounds, romantic lighting, chilled champagne, cozy room, delicious dinner, and an entertaining staff. I hope to have the chance to visit again.

Just returned from a two night stay at the Venlaw Castle Hotel in Peebles. Found the hotel almost on the first attempt. It's located just off the Edinburgh Road on the edge of Peeebles: up a 500m or so drive. The drive rises gradually to the carpark at the front of the hotel and affords some nice views over the...

Third stay in as many years and gets better every time. So welcoming, good food, good service and reasonably priced. Booked directly this time on autumn deal. Superior rooms are twice the size and well worth it. Thanks to all the staff, they make you feel so at home !! Our special down time place for a good rest without... More
