I really enjoyed my night at the Tontine Hotel in Peebles. This was my first visit to the town and it was a pleasurable experience. Lovely hotel with welcoming staff and a really pleasant, interesting town. It was well worth a visit and I will certainly come back.

Stayed for a midweek two night break and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely room overlooking the River Tweed and had Afternoon Tea which was scrumptious - great cakes. Took our dog and they provided a large comfy bed which he loved, bowl and biscuits too. Breakfast was lovely and we found the staff very nice indeed. If we were to... More

Thank you for taking time to post your review "CMcK63". Grateful for your recommendation about the food which we are glad you enjoyed! Some areas of the hotel are tired, the building is 205 years old and we agree Room 6 bathroom is due an up-grade.

I stayed for an Easter break, and I am so glad I chose this super traditionally decorated family run hotel. Nothing was too much trouble, food delicious and plenty of it, service was first class in all areas and a perfect location. The value for money ...especially as a solo traveller...was really tops too! Only one complaint.....that my stay wasn't... More

We stayed here in march 2015 . Great location in town centre with parking. The public areas are very traditional so we were a bit surprised to find that the room we had been given needed a bit of T.L.C. When we pointed this out , the owner contacted us and she made our stay very pleasant by her positive... More

Thank you "chimp787", we very much enjoyed reading you review and pleased to note your positive comments regarding your recent "Midweek 2 night stay".

This Hotel is ideal for couples visiting. It is right in the middle of the main shopping area, with a great selection of different type of shops. The wives went shopping, up one side then all the way down the other. Fortunately the hotel lounge is very comfortable to sit back and read the paper. The room was huge as... More

Thank you " Andrew T" for your review. We are finding popularity with our dog friendly approach.
