Very wonderful hotel. The staff were very attentive and the meals were delightful. I would definitely stay there again. We only stayed on night but the room was a delight with a huge 4 poster bed and wonderful views.

The castle is a bit off the beaten track but it is in a Lovely scenic location with views over the town of Peebles. The staff are very friendly and the food is amazing. We went for an evening meal with friends in March 2015 and returned April 2015. Definitely worth a visit. Would highly recommend.

Stayed 3 nights for semi annual Edinburgh rugby weekend :) Postcode a little deceptive as it takes you to the houses at the bottom of the hill, however with a little deduction found the entrance, and from that moment on the weekend went amazingly, the hotel was definitely an impressive sight, interior was very homely and welcoming and the staff...

Not a very amusing sign on reception desk in a hotel where guests may expect the luxury of breakfast served in bed! Unfortunately Castle Venlaw have quite a few "not very funny" rules when one reads the hotel information. No room service is suggested or offered when one reads that it is forbidden to bring, or eat, food in your... More
