My colleague and I use this hotel every November when fishing for Salmon on the Tweed. This Hotel never fails to go the extra mile to please. From the friendly Ladies at the reception desk, to the wonderful staff in the dining room, to the young Barman behind the Bar, and to the bedroom maids. All went out of their...

We have stayed at The Tontine several times before and we're never disappointed. All the staff are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, warm, comfortable and welcoming, with everything we need already there. Great location for exploring the hills, River Tweed and everything else the Borders have to offer. Even travelling with our two dogs, we are still...

We spent two nights here with our dogs. It's a wonderful hotel; our room was very comfortable, light and clean with a huge bed. We were near to the back hotel entrance so easy to take out the dogs and the hotel backs onto a river walk which was ideal for us. The staff couldn't do enough, I honestly have...

Thank you "citybreaker1428", loved reading your review and feedback. Thanks for "looking closely", reminds us that some winter paint and redecoration are in order. We were particularly pleased that you noted our efforts to retain the traditional charm of the 200 year plus building having injected some modern touches without losing the historical vibe.
