The room is of an excellent size, with good views. The hotel is very clean. WiFi is available in the Lounge Bar and Dining Room, no signal in bedroom. What makes Venlaw is... More

We have been to Castle Venlaw on all 3 of our trips to Peebles. It never fails to disappoint. Just love sitting in the round turrets, which have lovely views - playing draughts, whilst having a drink. This place just has such a special atmosphere - and a real castle feel. The food is always lovely - although it can... More

Had lunch here with some friends. The dining room is lovely and the food was nice. Battered fish was good and the thrice-baked fries crisp.

My food was supposed to be a seafood spaghetti dish was absolutely swimming in tomato sauce so you could only taste chopped tomatoes. I sent it back and they changed my order but not... More

Dinner was delicious. Bloody Mary Prawns; black pudding with bacon and hens egg; steak; chicken with marsala sauce; crepe suzette with grand marnier - all superb. Well cooked and beautifully presented.

We stayed one night here as it was very expensive to stay in Edinburgh during the fringe festival - as a NZ er an opportunity to stay in a castle was pretty special! The dinner meal was very nice, one of the nicest I have had in UK - Scottish salmon starter fresh and simple and to die for tender... More
