We stayed one night and were very comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room comfortable and the breakfast good. Our room was at the front of the hotel and was quiet even though it overlooked the main street. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The decor was dark though which gave the room a gloomy feel -...

Many thanks "zyxxix", we loved reading your review and in particular we thank you for mentioning the friendly team and helpful service received! We will have a look at the lighting level in your bedroom and see if we can increase comfort level in that respect. But thanks for the mention of the comfortable bed as all bedrooms have over...

Top hotel, great facilities, lock up and bike wash, staff friendly, management couldn't do enough for us, thoroughly enjoyed our stay, food was great too. Fabulous position for Glentress and Innerleithen MTB Forrests Coped very well with a group of 15 of us for two nights and the Beltane festival weekend too

Very many thanks for this super review, "RM11LAR" and delighted to read that the ladies found "The Tontine" to be such a "great venue". You certainly picked a great weekend to visit Glentress & Innerleithen with the added "bonus" of "Beltane Weekend". So very pleased that you all enjoyed the weekend!

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a large cycling group. Lovely town, and excellent hotel. Food was top quality and service impeccable. Room was large and bed/pillows made even my wife happy! Stayed in a front room, and found the view exceeded any issues about noise. Recommended.

Thank you "Jones499" a super concise review for which we are all very grateful! Super feedback on our bed and pillows, great recommendation for a hotel, where a good nights sleep is a priority and why we last year and this year, have replaced all bedrooms with new beds! Thanks for the mention which we feel justifies the investment. "Top... More

Great stay at the Tontine Hotel. Room was nice because it was quiet, with a lovely view onto the Tweed, breakfast second to none! Staff really concerned for us. Local destinations were nice also. Hilary helped us have great time.

Stayed here during/for a busy mountain bike event. Hotel was very friendly and comfortable but could do with some TLC throughout. Bedrooms were very clean and always loads of hot water. Bar food was tasty and plentiful. Fair breakfast choice.

A great concise review "Stoveman56" and thanks for taking time to post via Tripadvisor. TLC is "on-going" and I am glad to report the recent completion of a six bedroom and bathroom refurbishment programme. You make a super mention also of plenty hot water, again due to constant upgrade and renewal of our boilers and plumbing works. We hope you... More

One night stay to visit surrounding attractions. Room was nicely furnished and clean, enquire bathroom was particularly nice and had recently been decorated. Quirky features as to be expected with an old style hotel, however our room was right next to main stairs so noisy if heard someone go past, but this did not affect my sleep at all -... More
