Easy to find, just off the A703 on the outskirts of Peebles. Plenty of parking spaces around the building. Our "Classic" room was adequate, if a little small. The bathroom was also a bit tight and had a shower head above the bath. The person who did the grouting around the bath must have been having a bad day, judging... More

On a positive note, the people working here are so friendly, and the steak dinner I had was great. BUT when we first got here to check in, there was only one young lady working and our room was WAY upstairs, so many steps. My husband felt sorry for her so he, at age 74, made many trips up carrying... More

Fiancé and I stayed during our road trip. We were very pleased with the room and the staff. We checked and didn't need to leave having both dinner and drinks at the hotel. Staff was very friendly. Would definitely stay again.

We where welcomed by a lovely lady , she showed us our room & went out her way to make us feel welcome. In the morning... More

Some friends and I stayed here for three nights during a golf tour. The hotel is a little tired in places and the wi-fi does not extend to all rooms. The housekeeping standard is good throughout. All the staff were charming and they could not have been more helpful and obliging. One of our party has already provisionally booked a... More

Fantastic in all aspects. Amazing staff, great location, beautiful room. The food was excellent too! No better way to spend an anniversary. The best hotel I have ever stayed in. Peebles is a nice town and there are plenty of scenic walks in the area, Can't wait to come back!

Stayed for a long weekend for our Wedding Anniversary, the name of the room even matched my taste in whisky (Glenmorangie), four poster bed, bathroom modern and quirky, food was fantastic. Would recommend to all my friends.

We had stayed at a B&B close by a few years ago, so were keen to try this striking Hotel. It did not disappoint. Although the climb up 2 tall flights of stairs, especially with luggage is challenging; I red lined my Fitbit! And the low ceilinged recess on my side of the room caught my head a few times....

This is quite a nice hotel with very personal service. Rooms were a good size and comfortable, with a good size 4 poster bed. Bathroom is modern. Breakfast was good and staff were very nice. I would stay here again as I could not find fault with anything, except the breakfast timings.
