“Better than a hotel”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

We have just returned from Kingsmuir House where we had a lovely weekend. The house has been beautifully restored to former Victorian splendour. Our suite was gorgeous and all the little touches- like flowers, fruit, truffles & shortbread were very welcome. Breakfast was fantastic with lots of local produce and we could have stayed longer. Much better than many hotels we have stayed in.

We had an absolutely lovely time in Kingsmuir House. The rooms are immaculately and lovingly restored to Victorian beauty and the host saw to our every whim with commendable subtlety. Amazing breakfast. Highly recommended.

First time visiting the Kingsmuir as a B&B - can only back up what others have said on Trip Advisor. Absolutely first class - brilliant service, beautiful rooms, great food. What more can you ask for? We will definitely be back!

What a fanstastic weekend we had at this 1st class B&B. From the moment we arrived, my girlfriends and I were made to feel so welcome. The house, food and the surrounding location made for the most enjoyable and relaxing weekend. Malcolm is such a wonderful host and it was almost like we were friends in his home! Cannot recommend this establishment enough.

My husband and I spent two nights, in snowy March, at Kingsmuir house. After a warm welcome we were shown our beautifully decorated, two room suite. Every comfort had been thought of, including underfloor bathroom heating which was on all night! Our bed was so comfy that after our first night's sleep we slept in beyond breakfast time. This was not greeted with" No breakfast after 9.30am" but instead Malcolm said, "Breakfast is 9.30 ish!". We were glad we didn't miss that breakfast as it was lovely. Peebles has some really good restaurants and is a very pleasant town.
I forgot to mention the homemade truffles in the room! Yummy!

My wife and I decided to take a three day break over my birthday on 21st March, the only thing missing was the 'Spring' Thankfully we had booked into Kingsmuir House which must be the very best place to stay in Peebles. We came in from our artic expeditions to be greeted by a blast of warm air as we opened the door to our comfortable sitting room absolute bliss. Our stay at Kingsmuir completely salvaged what could have been a very bleak birthday! We concur with all the comments made on other reviews, one does just run out of superlatives. The only disappointment would be if you were not able to get a room!! We are looking forward to a return visit

Room Tip: Both rooms are superb nothing to choose between them you will not be dissapointed

We couldn't fault our recent stay at Kingsmuir House with the friendly service, great location, lovely bedroom suite and delicious food all being amazing. The room was warm, comfortable and beautifully decorated, with the addition of a cosy sitting room making the stay even more comfortable. The house is perfectly located for loads of great local walks and is just a short walk from all the bars and restaurants in Peebles. The breakfasts were delicious and the service was really friendly and efficient, Malcolm couldn't have done more to ensure we had a comfortable stay. There were lovely extra touches such as great quality local produce at breakfast and lovely home baking and iced water in the room. We would highly recommend a stay at this guest house and we certainly plan to stay there again when we next visit Peebles.
