“A nice restful break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

Just returned from one night stay , We took our dog and we had a nice room to the back which had a lovely view over the river , We really enjoyed our one night all the staff here were so nice and friendly , they all go out off their way to help with anything , We were DBB , mainly because we can eat with the dog beside us at the bar , but the food was really nice , and I am a fussy eater so if we return which we hope to, we would do the DBB again The room was very clean although maybe not a white cover on the bed when a dog is staying , I have read some of the bad reviews and it seems to be because of noise outside , this can not be the hotels fault and really dont think this should be taken into account ,we had no noise . I would recommend a visit here if you are visiting Peebles . Only thing I would say is I could not connect to the wifi , but my husband did , so I did go to the b/b accross the road as I need the wifi and got connected there no password required , but wifi is a bugbear with me as I need it and it should be free in all hotels in all areas . My other suggestion would be to have dog bowls of water left out .

Thank you "Sandy09Edinburgh" for writing such a positive review and indeed we are delighted you enjoyed "a nice restful break". You make many nice comments and recommendations and the kitchen team have enjoyed reading your excellent review of our service and food.
I was sorry to learn of the "wifi" problems, it is free here, with recent up-grades should not be difficult to connect. Also very glad to learn that your "best friend" enjoyed our facilities, having taken the decision to join you for dinner in the bar. We hope to welcome you all back soon!
Kate & Gordon Innes.

I have visited and stayed at a number of 3 star hotels in the UK but never one like this. From the minute we walked in the door to the minute we left following our family reunion w/end we were treated to the highest standards of hospitality, service, food and a genuine feeling that Kate and her staff were there to make our w/end special. 30+ people on the Friday night and 40+ on the Saturday. This hotel is also situated smack in the middle of the lovely borders town of Peebles. Used both the smaller dining room, (Buchan) and the main dining room, (Adam). Bedrooms spotless and all public areas very well appointed. The hotel were more than happy to help us with entertainment for the w/end giving us contact details for performers and allowed us use of their sound system for our music. Well done to all at the Tontine Peebles. Great w/end.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the more recently refurbished rooms with river view

We just recently spent a weekend in the Tontine celebrating a family reunion. Thirty adults from age 30- 80 and ten young children. Kate and her staff made us all feel so welcome and we had a fabulous time in the comfort of the hotel whilst enjoying a wonderful food experience. Roaring open log fires to greet us in the lounge and a staff who went above and beyond to please. Overall a wonderful weekend and great vaue for money.

Many thanks "william vance22" for such a "first class" review following the family re-union weekend, which we also enjoyed very much. It was very satisfying for the hotel and the team to see such a great bunch of folk and family enjoying themselves, which is after all what the hospitality business is all about!
We would all love to think that "The Tontine" is possibly on the agenda for a future "get together" for the Vance family, we would love to do it all again!
Best wishes to you all from Kate, Gordon Innes and "The Tontine Team".

Thank you very much "dai 1", a very nice review you have given us following your recent return to the town and place of your birth. We are very pleased to note that you so enjoyed your stay at the hotel and many thanks for your positive feedback and recommendations. A great "room tip" regarding bedrooms in the "riverside lodge" with their lovely views to the river tweed and hills beyond.
Thanks again!

2nd time in this Hotel and I was again very impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms. The lounge area is very relaxing with the open fire and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The Hotel in the heart of the town and convenient for all the bars and restaurants. Breakfast is cooked to order and of a very high standard. I would recommend this Hotel to any of my family and friends and have in the past booked it for my in-laws who were equally impressed.

We arrived in the rain. We walked by the river in the rain and we walked up hills in the rain. Just as well we were returning to The Tontine to dry out. What a fantastic hotel. The room we had was very comfortable and the furniture and fittings were of a very high standard. The staff were probably the friendliest we have ever encountered in a hotel. It's not part of a big group and it shows. Ok, so The Tontine does not have a spa, pool or gym like a big hotel we stayed in nearby but it more than makes up for this with the quality of welcome and the friendly and informative service. We like Peebles so we will be back, and we will come back to The Tontine.
