Our stay at the Barony surpassed our expectations, which were high.
The staff couldn't do enough to help, they were all so genuinely pleasant (a special thankyou to the housekeepers who made our room like new every day)
The grounds are spectacular with extras like the mini assault course, the Alter at the end of the stunning Ewe tree walk.and the Scottish map. An amazing place.
The food was excellent, well cooked and well presented.
The swimming pool is warm, which is a delight on a cold winters day.
Highly recommended.

Just spent two fabulous nights at Barony Castle. From the minute we arrived ( very warm welcome - thank you Graham) till we left all the staff were fantastic, very courteous and friendly. Accommodation (Tweeddale) service and food first class. The hotel was very busy as there were Christmas party nights on both the nights we were there but the staff remained very up beat despite the fact that they were 'run off their feet'.

We hope to be back very soon!

Just returned from a 2 night stay at Barony Castle. Would definitely come back, staff very helpful "Especially Jamie at front desk and Kristian behind the bar, very friendly! " The location is superb, plenty of woodland walks and peace and tranquility in abundance. Food was great, pool and spa very relaxing, Only gripe was the bath being rather small and and taking an age to empty? Overall though a lovely relaxing break in a beautiful setting. Ps, stayed 1 night at Peebles Hydro prior to arriving at Barony Castle and preferred Barony, will be back.

Room Tip: Room 301 was spot on!

Great peaceful location, very quite. Enjoyed eating here, food was good and service fast and pleasant.
Took the bus into Edinburgh, bus stop right at entrance to castle drive way...much more stress free than driving into city.

Beautiful location in the Borders hills and close to Peebles. At a 2 day seminar - conference facilities are excellent. There is a pool and a gym (which I didn't use). Staff were very pleasant and helpful (especially the waitress in the restaurant). Food was excellent. Area that needs attention is the bedrooms. I was in a very small room (221) which had a rather uncomfortable bed (much too hard), problematic Wifi reception, tired decor and bathroom which needs upgrading. Heard similar stories from others in my group. If they get the bedrooms rights, they'll have close to a perfect venue.

Stayed at Barony Castle for a wedding. This is the second time I have stayed and was still surprised at how beautiful it is. Gorgeous setting and great first impression of the cheerful, helpful reception staff. Room was fine, only down points were the shower kept facing the wall so had to hold it in place or it went everywhere and you could hear everyone walking about the hall. Didn't put us off though, had a lovely stay!

The hall where the reception took place was gorgeous! Plenty space for everyone. Breakfast the following morning was very nice but family members did have to wait about 20-30 minutes on poached eggs, would have been nice if they kept up updated (we thought we had been forgotten about)

I would definatley stay here again and would recomment to family/friends. Would be beautiful in winter!
