Every year we go golfing. We decided this year to try the MacDonald Cardrona. Upon arrival on the Friday we went to the Spikes bar to grab a coffee and roll. The lady in the golf shop was excellent and she is a credit to the hotel. We played the course which was lovely playing by the river Tweed. After... More

Cadrona Hotel sits in a great location just outside Peebles in the Tweed Valley surrounded by its popular golf course. The rooms are large, modern and very comfortable and those on the south side have great views of the course. Meeting and function rooms are excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food, even in a function... More

Lovely hotel, staff are very friendly and the customer services is excellent. I was with a group for the party night and we had a great time. Breakfast was very nice if a little chaotic as they kept having the replenish the stock for the hot food very often and there was a lot of waiting around.

Recently stayed for the first time on a short golf break. Everything about the stay was excellent. The location of the hotel in beautiful countryside by the banks of the River Tweed, the golf course itself, the rooms,the food in the restaurant and specifically the support provided by the golf organiser Ross Astley.

When we went down for our evening meal,we were asked if we had booked a table,when we said no we were told it would be 9-30pm before we could get one,we did however get one with plenty tables empty.It put a bit of a dampener on things.
