Great place to stay if your on business, very relaxing, good internet access. You don't get much phone signal though. Just one thing there is no air-conditioning so be prepared if its hot for a sleepless night

Our twin room overlooking the golf course was the treat my sister and I were looking for, and we enjoyed our early morning swim before breakfast. A few things were just on the 'disappointing side' i.e. a 'quality' Scottish beef burger dry on a bread roll, with some chunky chips, and rocket (salad) presented dry. This wasn't attractive to look... More

My cousin was married here on the 27/6/15 and a wonderful day was had by all. The staff were very attentive and the rooms were just beautiful! The beds were the comfiest I've ever slept on and the pillows so fluffy I only needed one! One particular young man, Sam was brilliant, laughing along with us as the night went... More

Stayed here an overnight dinner,bed and breakfast. The room was lovely and clean,the bed was so comfortable with great pillows. The dinner and breakfast were fantastic, the drinks were expensive but its expected. I booked a massage and had a lovely massage in the Elemis spa which is really inviting. The big let down for this place is the pool... More

We travelled as a large party and everything went smoothly in the private rooms on the 3rd floor. Hotel dominates the valley and the Tweed rolls past nearby. Spa and swimming pool good. Golf course pretty but long and quite demanding.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent. Golf course is very long and challenging. The rooms were very good and everything worked well including wifi. We all enjoyed our stay and would return again.

We stayed overnight on the dinner bed and breakfast deal . Its a cracking hotel and the staff were very helpful and couldn't do enough for us . The only thing that I would ask people to be aware of is the prices on the drinks menu . We mistakenly assumed that the price of a bottle of Savingon Blanc... More

The Macdonald Cardrona Hotel is situated in the Tweed Valley, approximately 22 miles from Edinburgh, and 3 miles west of Peebles. It is also set in some of the most stunning scenery in Scotland. This very fact in itself, should always start this hotel with a 5 rating. We were booked in for a weekend break. A chance to walk... More
