From looking at the website this hotel looked like the idyllic venue for my wedding. I travelled from Northampton to Scotland to visit and get a quote etc. The staff were rude and unhelpful, the rooms were small, dated and not in good condition. The food was poor and extremely over priced. I waited weeks for my quote but never... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with a friend cycling in Glentress. The hotel is basic but functional. There is WiFi in the bar, a good range on whisky and the staff are helpful. Breakfast choices are poor, the rooms are tired and the hotel feels run down. I've stayed in the Peebles Hydro before which is a nice hotel... More

A lovely place to stay. Friendly helpful staff, Comfortable, queit and clean. Pleasant meal. Shower not that great but managed after a hard days ride. Bedroom door slammed to be shut. Great location great view over Peebles. Ideal one night stay over for travellers. However not for those on a budget.

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.

I couldn't believe they were so willing to help the reception were wonderful and went out and got both flowers and the required brand of champagne locally. I know my wife is over the moon with her superior double and having... More

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...
