The food was fabulous, We now compare it everywhere we go but have never actually been able to find anywhere that exceeds it. The rooms are very comfortable and we had a fantastic sleep on both nights. Lots... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay at the Cardrona. The staff could not have been more attentive and did everything possible to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Our meal in the evening was excellent. The presentation and quality of the food could not be faulted. We had planned to golf but the weather was not particularly good so we enjoyed... More

We had one of the refurbished golf view rooms and had a great stay. A jacuzzi in the swimming pool complex would be a great addition but the current facilities are fine. We had to eat in the bar as the restaurant is quite small but the food was good. We understand this can be an issue during busy periods.

We stayed here for our anniversary and everything was fabulous. Rooms are big and have everything you need. If you can, ask for a room with golf views. The food is good and staff brilliant and helpful. We'll come back.

This two night stay was a birthday treat from my partner, and being just over a couple of hours away, it wasn't too far. It was an autumn offer, and a little reduced from the normal two night weekend break. The hotel is located about 3 miles east of the market town of Peebles, about ten minutes by roadand in... More
