Last minute booking, we stayed here for 2 nights, Hogmanay and New Years Night. Part of the deal on arrival cream tea was available, then a four course meal for New Years Eve which was delicious, considering the "party" night was fully booked, MacDonald provided plenty of staff who were very courteous and efficient! The food over the 2 nights,...

Looks good on paper and setting is impressive but service is poor and decor outdated, as are spa facilities. Birthday visit with my partner and we weren't allowed to get an ice bucket for our room so we could drink our own champagne. No communication between front desk and bar areas so front desk didnt know what we had already...

Does what it says on the tin! Not too far from the trails at Glentress either. Great to have a pool to relax in after a day on the trails. There's a sauna but no jacuzzi. Didn't eat here so can't comment. All in all good stay. Friendly staff.

I've just returned from a lovely overnight stay from here. I am an incredibly lucky chap as my gorgeous girlfriend treated me to a wee trip away for my birthday. She had booked us in for a treatment at the Spa of a neck and back massage, and I was in the very capable hands of a young lady called...

Arrived for check in at 3pm, on arrival we were told we would not be able to eat until 9pm. My partner had left straight from work, there is no way he could have waited until then. We ended up having to eat at coffee tables in the lounge rather than the restaurant. Not ideal. The menu was ok however...

My husband and I spent 5 nights from 23rd to 28th December and overall we enjoyed our stay in the Cardrona . We were visiting our family and this is our second stay in the hotel. We stayed four years ago and weren't overly impressed but this year we had very little to complain about. Our room was spotlessly clean...

Booked a well earned break to relax and unwind. The long and winding drive to Peebles was a joy, quiet and scenic. The hotel is nice and staff were very welcoming, we were lucky enough to have a lovely view of the golf course which was really nice due to the start of Winter. Enjoyed a lovely meal in the...
