Whities guesthouse is located above the bookshop on Peebles High Street and is owned by the same family. The building has been renovated and is clean, warm and comfortable. The old bath is fantastic!

The owners are very friendly and provide a superb breakfast. Lunch boxes are provided so you can take food from the breakfast for lunch - very useful if you are going walking or cycling, for which Peebles is a superb base.

This is one of the best B&Bs I have visited in Scotland and one I will use again. Highly recommended.

Whitie's is a fabulous, cozy, comfortable, laid-back residence with superb accommodations. The building is a bookshop, newsagent and converted family home into the B&B. A common room, a dining room as well as three well-fitted rooms. We stayed in the Venlaw, which looked over High street. It has a superking bed, and we saw the other rooms, all very well, high-quality furnished. One other faces High Street, the other looks out over the River and hills...beautiful! All the period decor is in place, and the bedding is as nice as we have at home (quality beds!) which whites, crisp yellows and greens... There is a separate bathroom with the claw-footed original bathtub! Nice to soak, with candles and serenity. Our front room had the old metal and stained glass windows.

The owners are top-notch and classy. Each room has a TV with VCR and DVD player, and kitted out for tea making and treats. What a surprise to find a wine chiller fridge! In the common area there are video tapes and books, many of the area.

Breakfast was typical but Sheila really does this wonderfully. Eggs, bacon, porridge (my husband said better than mine. Sigh.) all sorts of fruits, croissants, buns (baked goods from local bakery, as well a must-visit baker on high street) - and she really wants you to take the boxes and take what you don't eat.

The owners are friendly but not at all intrusive. Its like you are truly guests of their home. Location is perfect - right next to the church and close to all of main street, the river and walking.

We live only 3 hours away but have already planned our next weekend at Whitie's!

If you like something slightly different, this is for you. Situated above the family newsagents and bookshop this is a charming Victorian property with many original features. Located on the high street it is very convenient and parking in the town was okay. The bedrooms and beds were very comfortable, as were the guest rooms. You can use the dining room in the evening for a takeaway if you wish. The buffet breakfast was very hearty and tasty, with the option of preparing yourself a packed lunch. We will return.

Great B & B, nicer in fact than the Peebles Hydro bedroom which our friends spent their wedding night in.

The lady owner was extremely friendly and made the best porridge I've ever had! Very comfortable bedroom with all mod cons. A totally lovely stay in a very central, very friendly b&b. I would recomend this to anyone looking for somewhere special and cosy to stay in Peebles.

A real find!
