We had a one night stay in a superior room with dinner and breakfast and we will definitely be back! The hotel had a special offer on their website which was very good value. The room was beautiful. It was spacious, clean and had a beautiful four poster bed. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions were very generous.... More

Had an excellent stay here on 16th October. Very friendly and helpful staff. There for you when you want anything but not intrusive. The evening meal was very tasty and a varied menu. The bar is cosy and comfortable. Very comfortable bed and breakfast was one of the best I really enjoyed the full cooked breakfast good quality produce. I... More

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

Like stepping back in time, we made our trip from North America to visit the border country of Scotland. Our intention was to disconnect from our daily grind, experience the Scottish culture and of our main interest, enjoy the mountain bike trails at the nearby Glentress & Innerleithan trails. Friends had stayed at Castle Venlaw and did recommend, especially a... More

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
