We very rarely go back anywhere, but this is our fourth winter trip to the Tontine. Always a warm welcome, clean cosy accommodation and lovely food. Right in the middle of town, but quiet, and walks from the front door either along the Tweed or over neighbouring hills. The many levels of the Hotel must be a challenge for anyone...

We received a warm welcome at the Tontine, our room at the back of the hotel overlooked the river and was a good size although the decor was a little tired. Huge and very comfy bed made for a good nights sleep and very nice and clean. The bistro does rather lack atmosphere which is a bit of a shame...

Many thanks for your feedback "alexandraf" some good comment with some constructive. Bedroom refurbishment is "on-going" although at present we are busy putting 2 x projects together to introduce a platform lift giving better access to our Riverside Lodge plus full replacement of our water storage tanks. We will get back on to bedroom refurbishment later this year. Thank you...

Another excellent weekend at The Tontine-one of my favourite hotels. Always friendly and attentive service. The front of the hotel is sometimes noisy on a Saturday night but this is obviously beyond the control of the managers and staff so consider asking for a room at the back of the hotel if you don't sleep well. Extremely good value for...

We had a lovely weekend at the Tontine. Service is great, whether at check in, at the bar or at breakfast. We stayed in the main Georgian part in one of the attic rooms which was well appointed and cosy. Downstairs, there is a lovely drawing room to relax in with a drink and quite a stunning dining room to...

We have stayed here many times and always choose to return whenever we visit Peebles. We love the traditional and homely feel created by the staff and decor of the building which has only been improved by the ongoing upgrade work benefitting the rooms. Each time we come it is a little more chic (you can tell it is a...

Booked a 3 night package from Christmas Eve to Boxing Day. Kate, Gordon and all the staff made us feel like we were at home with little touches like the card & gift. I would highly recommend the Tontine hotel and look forward to returning some day.

We had a 3 night stay to visit family in the local area. Staying at the Tontine was fantastic. The staff were beyond helpful and very friendly. The room was really good and the brekkie was delicious. I would definitely stay here next time I'm in Peebles.
