Whenever we stay in Peebles it's at the Tontine Hotel. The hotel is excellent and the staff are all lovely and exceptionally helpful. We love the area so much that we recently got married in Peebles, had the wedding reception at the Tontine and many of our guests stay with us at the hotel. We could not have asked for... More

The staff were too busy chatting among themselves to bother very much, but we persevered and ordered afternoon tea. When it arrived we could see that... More

The atmosphere in the dining room is wonderful. The lunch we had was excellent. Try the hagggis, it was excellent. The price is worth the experience. You can also enjoy tea and excellent pastries in the waiting area.

Stayed overnight and really enjoyed the Tontine. Really good service from reception, bars and at breakfast. Nice room, good facilities and right in the centre of the town. Loved the cocktails in the bar and prices were also reasonable. Will visit again!

Stayed for a night on a biking trip with 3 friends. Conveniently located in the heart of the town. Room was very nice and well presented, comfortable bed & excellent bathroom including a deep bath which I made full use of having injured my back during the afternoon! Bikers welcome and good storage space to keep your kit safe overnight.... More

We decided to have a couple of days in the Scottish Borders playing two rounds of golf at Peebles and Hirsel Golf Clubs. The hotel was built in 1908 and has that old building feeling with very warm and welcoming staff. The only problem we had was waiting for breakfast the first morning. There was a mix up and we...

Booked hotel at the last minute and the two girls on reception Lauren and Sarah (I think) had lovely telephone manner which put you at ease as they seemed genuinely interested in you as a guest rather than another anonymous customer.
