I did expect more if I'm honest. My double bed was actually two singles shoved together, which meant I had an uncomfortable nights sleep. This combined with a fire alarm ringing for a continuous Half an hour in the small hours of the morning on one day followed by a short sharp blast the next day for good measure really... More

Recently visited the hotel for a short break with my husband. We arrived at 1.30pm, and were greeted by a lovely young lady on reception, who informed us our room was ready (even though we were an hour and a half early). We were really chuffed to be told we had been upgraded, as on my booking request I had... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our mini break at the Cardrona Hotel, Peebles. The food is excellent, the staff were very helpful and professional. The location is fantastic and the facilities of the hotel second to none. Overall, a very pleasant experience and we shall be returning soon. JAC

Played golf here with 3 others in August 2014 having travelled down from Edinburgh. Did not stay in the hotel. Scenery was beautiful, course good (but 5 hour round) and hotel looked nice, We were however disappointed that having come off the course between 4:30 and 5:00 we learned that Spikes Bar was closing at 5:30 and no food of...

The rooms are spacious and are immaculately clean. The food is excellent and you get a lovely view from the Dining room. The... More

The views from this hotel are it's selling point. The location is amazing. We stayed here for the night before and after a wedding. They were very accommodating and we had a very enjoyable pre-wedding meal the night before the wedding. The rooms are large and beds very comfortable. They also opened the bar again when our wedding party returned... More

I stayed here on business and chose it for the gym facility. Nice and easy to park and greeted well on reception. Room was spacious and comfortable. Only grumble about the room is the bathroom floor. The tiles were wobbly and the grout was missing. It's begging for a bare foot catastrophe! Dined in bar which lacked atmosphere and adequate... More
