The Tontine Hotel in Peebles delivers consistently excellent food and service. We had another gathering today with 35 members present, and the prearranged menu, with three choices over three courses, plus sorbet after starters and tea/coffee to round off the meal, were all of a high standard and received with much enthusiasm. Highly recommended for good food, efficient and friendly... More

Just returned from our third stay at the tontine in the last 12 months. This is an excellent independent hotel, lovely location backing onto the tweed and with delightful walks close by, which was ideal as we took our dog this time, he was welcome in the bar where a full menu is available. The food is lovely, staff are... More

Thank you very much "Skybird2008", a great review for us to reflect upon. I also hope you appreciated the "contemporary" style of the refurbishment which has kept and indeed brought the "old style" alive and very much up to date. We were delighted to read your positive comments regarding our service and hotel facilities. Kate & Gordon Innes. More

Popped in for a drink, and decided to book an afternoon tea whilst here on holiday. There are not many of these old style charm hotels left. Warm, courteous staff, welcomed by a front of house gentleman (which is lovely to see). We cosyed up at the open fire and enjoyed our afternoon tea. Would love to visit again Thank... More

The history of the creation in 1808 of the Tontine Hotel in Peebles must be unique. French prisoners of war? Must be in Napoleon's time! Were they forced to work on the building? In any case, the hotel is beautifully built, and the original part, although squeezed between other buildings in the centre of the town, retains a symmetry which... More

Our visit to the Tontine was by way of a Christmas gift. We know Peebles very well and have dined at the Tontine on many occasions, but this visit was the first time we have been resident.
