Had a great stay here (mostly). Hotel was nice, staff excellent, service and food were excellent. On the whole my wife and I had a great time. The only thing that let this place down (and this means I won't be back) was the bed. It was awful. It should have been thrown out well before now. I can't say... More

My husband and I stayed at the Cardrona hotel last week. From the moment we stepped into the hotel the staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful. Our room was spacious, clean, tidy and lovely and warm. Our room was at the front of the hotel and looked out onto the surrounding hills. The bathroom was a decent... More

Have just returned from a 2 night break in the Cardrona Peebles. We had a fantastic time with friends, hotel staff very friendly and the food was first class. Pool and Spa area also very nice. Great location for walks and footpath which is only a short 3 mile walk into Peebles. Looking forward to our return.

Dear Karen Thank you for your review. It is kind of you to take the time. The cycle path is indeed a great asset to the area and is very well used by walkers and cyclists between Innerleithen and Peebles. I hope we can welcome you back soon. Kind Regards Stuart Maxwell General Manager More

I stayed for one evening whilst travelling on business. As I'm not a golfer, I'm probably missing some of the purpose of staying at this hotel, as I stayed purely for its location and its pool. The staff were very professional and the dinner service was good however I felt that the room and food & drink were a little... More
