It's 18 miles from Edinburgh and there is a regular Peebles 62 First Bus at the bottom of the road, although that's about a ten minute walk to the hotel from the bus stop.. So we hired a car. Directions from Edinburgh for the hotel are clear with plenty of signs. No signs from the south (Peebles), so be prepared!
Hotel Reception were friendly and reliable.
The room was clean and comfortable. Creaking floors but that's always the case in a classic old building. The bed was firm.
Disappointing not to receive Sky News on the bedroom TV. Digital TV in some parts is lacking.
The swimming pool in the GYM was easy to find and use. You need to know the door code, but it's straightforward. The pool is a little small, especially when there were six people in it. The jacuzzi is fun, and the sauna is a little intimate.
Breakfast was excellent, although I forgot to take advantage of porridge. You have to order porridge because "it doesn't sit well for long periods"
Restaurant evening meal was good, although the wine was pricey! On the second night we chose a bar snack and that was the normal DeVere type standard.
If you are looking for a quiet getaway then this is the place for you.
