It had been far too long since our last stay at Kingsmuir but I'm happy to report Malcolm's standards have certainly not slipped if anything the experience gets better each time! It was great to see Head of Security, Morag and new recruit Head of Hospitality, Bramble who I'm sure once she goes through the rigorous training programme will be... More

Kingsmuir House deserves every one of its 'excellent' reviews. From the booking to check out we were looked after in every way. This is a beautiful, comfortable and welcoming B & B. The breakfast was second to none, quality produce cooked and presented to perfection. Peebles is a thriving town with many independent shops, cafes and restaurants. These are all... More

There aren't enough superlatives to describe this b&b. It's without doubt the best we've ever stayed in. Malcolm is an excellent host and he genuinely cares about the comfort and wellbeing of his guests. The house is set in a lovely garden (complete with summerhouse) with views over to nearby hills. We stayed in the Haystoun suite. The decor and... More

We held our intimate, family only wedding ceremony in the gardens of Kingsmuir House in June 2016. The whole day from start to finish was perfect! Malcolm took care of every detail from canapés to seating arrangements to the perfectly manicured gardens. The attention to detail was second to none and special mention goes to the fish and chip canapés,... More

In over 40 years of quite extensive travelling, we have never returned to stay at the same place twice - until now. This was our second visit in less than a year, and before we left we booked our 3rd visit for later in the year. It really is that good. The house and rooms are beautiful. We have now... More

What an accolade and an honour to be the only place visited twice, I am so pleased we lived up to your expectations. Other guests have also treated themselves to a message, as you mention only a short walk and your experience appears to be the same as many others in being one of the best massages they have had....

We stayed here over our wedding and it was absolutely amazing. From the moment I booked it 18 months prior to our stay, Malcolm could not have been more accommodating and helpful with arrangements. We even received a Christmas card at our then home in Canada! The accommodation was perfect - so comfortable, clean and every little detail has been... More

We stayed 4 nights at Kingsmuir, my daughter and I, and we were completely delighted with the place and its host. The location is superb: on a not-very-busy street but just 3 minutes' walk to the high street and all the shops/restaurants. There is ample, easy parking inside the gates. The spacious suite we had was beautifully decorated, had every... More

I am pleased you enjoyed the location of Kingsmuir and it's proximity to Peebles, just a short walk through the park. We introduced the fridges earlier this year to keep the milk fresh and also somewhere you can keep your drinks chilled. It is always good to get feedback on the recommendations for walks in the local area which are... More
