Have always rated the food at the Tontine, but for no particular reason have not visited for a while. On this occasion I ordered a seafood dish described as 'King Prawns with tagliatelle in tomatoe and basil sauce'. When it arrived there appeared to be adequate in the dish but, as I ate the delicious pasta and sauce, I realized... More

Thank you for taking time "MathildeGalashiels" to post your review. We do recall your experience and indeed made a note that you visited the hotel in early July. We have since reviewed the dish and now present 6 King Prawns. Further feedback since early July has been good and indeed the dish is a popular one on our current menu... More

Just home from a wonderful 2 nights stay in this lovely hotel with my husband and my Mum and Dad and felt the need to compliment the owners and staff for their warm welcome and friendly service during our stay.

The hotel has a very happy welcoming atmosphere. The room fresh clean and the laundry spotless, with excellent service. WI FI, internet etc available.

Myself, sister & mother stayed here as part of a package to the Edinburgh Tattoo last weekend. We had a room for us all which had 3 single beds in but was fairly spacious and a large bathroom too which was fine. Got there on Friday night and the 3 course meal was included. I don't eat meat so had... More

We came in through the rear entrance into what felt like a youth hostel and my heart sank. Thankfully this was the only bad thing (apart from the sausages at breakfast). The room was huge and really comfortable the view was lovely and the rest of the hotel is beautiful. Service is great but as I mentioned earlier the sausages... More

Many thanks "Joeavision" for writing your review. Delighted to read that you found the hotel and service "really good". We often think we need a plan to "brighten up" our entrance area at the rear of the hotel and although it offers good access to the car park and "Riverside Lodge" bedrooms, we agree it doesn't win any design awards....

We recently booked a 3 night stay on the strength of last year's lovely break at the Tontine. Sadly our trip this year was a huge disappointment. We were allocated room 1. Lovely views of the river but also of huge ducting/ extractor fans from the kitchens below. Constant noise from this. Receptionist said they'd be switched off at 10pm... More

So sorry "Carole P" that your visit this year proved so disappointing! We are grateful for the constructive nature of your feedback regarding the housekeeping standards, which we have discussed with the team of staff. We immediately attended to the cleaning issues. Room 1 is located above the kitchen and the extract fans do cause a noise issue to some... More

We visited this restaurant on 13/8/2015, our 10yr old is coeliac, they do a fantastic range of gf dining. The two girls serving us couldn't do any more to help us. Our meals were absolutely fantastic. Our daughters gf fish and chips were so tasty. She ate every bit. Will definitely be back.

A warm and friendly hotel in the centre of the main street. A beautiful dining room with stunning views slightly marred by the hotel annex built behind. Rooms offered good facilities and the food was good. A very quiet hotel. We had a pleasant stay of only one night but would have liked to have seen photos of the rooms... More

Thank you "baronbar" for your good review. Thanks for your recommendation, our location we feel is just perfect to enjoy the town and the local golf courses nearby.
