Good service, fine food and welcoming local staff all add up to make this hotel a thoroughly pleasant place to stay. The views are amazing, close to some great walks and cycle paths too. Great facilities too

We visited to play a 3-ball at Cardona. The course itself is pretty decent and the setting is stunning however the fact that it took us over 5 and 1/4 hours to play 18 holes is beyond a joke. As a 3-ball group we normally go round in about 3 and 1/2 hours on any course however we waited for... More

Overall a very pleasant stay. We asked for an earlier check in as we were attending a wedding in Peebles and the staff kindly made sure this was possible. Unfortunately we didn't have a nice view overlooking the golf course but our room was very spacious and comfortable. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. I would definitely recommend the...

We stayed here to base ourselves in the area to do some touring, nice clean hotel with spacious rooms and comfy big beds, great views out over the countryside or the golf course. Food was good, both evening meals and breakfast were tasty and good quality. Staff were friendly and helpful. Overall though a typical large chain corporate hotel and... More

Room overlooked the golf course on the 4th floor which was a beautiful and tranquil escape. Staff were friendly and the pool and gym facilities were fantastic. However, two vodka mixers were £11.50 which is pretty expensive so deterred us from having drinks in the hotel. Excellent breakfast service however did not eat dinner in the hotel.

Lovely location, facilities for families good. would have appreciated being told the restaurant was full until 9.15pm! we were offered the cocktail bar to eat in were presented with a basic light bites menu with a basic evening meal selection. The cocktail bar tables were too small for the plates and the tables were rickety and shook and spilled the... More

Can't fault the hotel it was a great place for a wee golf break for my husband and I was able to make use of the spa, while he golfed. We chose a golf view room, which had a glorious view not just of the course but stunning scenery all around! The room was spotless with a huge bed, very... More

Just back from a fabulous three day break at this hotel. The room was lovely. It was clean and well equipped. The large bed was very comfortable although the pillows too soft for our liking. Not a problem though, as I spoke to reception staff re this and housekeeping later replaced them for us. The staff were all very efficient... More
