Although I have stayed and reviewed this hotel before I feel it is only fair to update my views for the benefit of TA readers. I stayed here on the 18th and 19th of December at a very busy time for the hotel. Christmas celebrations were taking place and the restaurant staff and bar and reception staff were fully stretched...

Stayed one night on business. I'm no fan of the big, soulless hotels and like to find local gems - this is one of those. All the comforts you require, but with character and individuality. Enjoyed good beer and whisky in the bar, good food in the restaurant and a fabulous breakfast. It never ceases to amaze me how many...

Reviewed 2 December 2015

This place is perfectly acceptable, although nothing special. The room I had was enormous, but there was a general tattiness about the place and it could do with a lick of paint and sprucing up. I'd probably go back if needing to stay in Peebles again as it is very central

Very impressive service, breakfast was fantastic and bed very comfortable. Only potential criticisms are no bathrobes and coat hangers that are fixed to the wardrobes but they're little things. Highly recommended and we will be back with the kids next time. Thanks to the very helpful staff who nipped out for toothpaste for me!
