“Nice - for a care home”
Reviewed 21 May 2012

We had two nights at the Park Hotel and regretfully found it totally lacking in atmosphere. The decor is very jaded and there is a permeating 'cooking smell' throughout the ground floor. It closely resembled a care-home in terms of furnishings and decor.
On the plus side the staff were all very helpful, friendly and well-trained. The breakfast was very nice but our dinners varied: on the first night it was quite poor, on the following night lovely! Perhaps chef had an off-day (or a day off). The location of the hotel is great, with easy parking and nice views of the surrounding hills, but overall we found the hotel over-priced for what it offered.

A small comfortable hotel. We spent a relaxing two days here. The staff were very friendly. The food was lovely. The access to the Peebles Hydro Spa was a bonus. I have always found a McMillan Hotel is good value.

Room Tip: If you find stairs are difficult tell them when booking as top floor has no lift access.

This hotel changed from the first floor to the second once you took the lift to the first floor you had to get out and walk. The quality and feel of the second floor decor and staircase changed to very basic as was the bedroom and the bathroom, very basic very small did not have a fresh clean feel. Hope that the rest of the rooms in the hotel were better. The window on the landing was not clean to look out of. The breakfast was average, cooked breakfast OK but the buffet table very poor. Evening meal was not too bad with a good choice but some of the presentation was basic. Atmosphere of the public lounge was that of a rest home. On the plus side the staff that you had face to face contact with were all very welcoming and did their best for you when they served you at the table and on reception.

Room Tip: Do not have a room on second floor

We had a superior room (72) with a sitting area overlooking the hills. It was tastefully furnished, warm and very clean. The cornices/coving, fireplace and decoration were beautiful, the bathroom larger than average and there was plenty of space.
The menu offered plenty of choice, was always hot, well presented and tasty.
The staff were all very friendly, helpful and polite.
Overall The Park is a warm, friendly, traditional hotel. It caters primarily for couples and the more mature visitors who appreciate the country house decor, furnishings and style. Children would be very bored - although you can use the leisure facilities at the Hydro.
Peebles itself is a lovely town. Lots of independant shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: Room 72 is the old drawing room and has floor to ceiling windows with a great view

Our second visit here and with a 5 year break in between, but it was still a really nice place to spend some time.

Spacious, comfortable, great service and good food.

We'll be back and hopefully a little quicker!

Room Tip: Upgrade. Its worth the extra!
