Booked last minute for a sisters birthday. Had noticed spa deals on spa sites but given previous experience of not having treatment appts available etc I cut out the middle man and booked direct. Glad I did, the lass at reservations was extremely helpful and accommodating, we required a triple room and needed it dog friendly for my collie and... More

I had to stay here as I left it late to book. I will learn my lesson and book earlier in the future as I was very disappointed. The problem when you go back somewhere is that you have something to compare your visit to. Sadly the standard of cleanliness is on the decline here. There were stains on the... More

The hotel was really good came for the golf played 2rounds the course was in good condition the only Drawback was the rough was a tad thick as the ball rolled in at the edge you had no chance of finding it.

Just spent one night here for a birthday surprise for my mother. Lovely food and beautiful locations. Three miles from Peebles. Good gym and swimming pool, will go back to try these. Located at side of a golf course so views are stunning, our room looked onto the course with the hills in the background.

We stayed on an Itison DBB deal which included an afternoon cream tea. We arrived on one of the hottest days of the year and received a very nice welcome from a friendly male receptionist. We had upgraded to a "golf view room" which was spacious and well appointed. Good complimentary refreshment tray in the room although only tap water... More

I think they had taken too many bookings at dinner. Our starter was served in good time and was well presented and delicious. We had to wait a further 90 minutes for our main course and when it was served it looked like a dog's dinner. Tasted ok though! During our wait we were afforded very little apology and only... More

Room large, bit dated but clean, huge comfy bed, plenty of tea/coffee and fresh milk, bonus. We decided not to book the restaurant and just eat in bar area, you could... More
