I have stayed at this hotel many times over the years but not for some time now. The hotel is situated in a handy location for all that Peebles has to offer. My wife and I had gone to Peebles on the Friday afternoon and got caught in a bit of a snow storm so just after 5 pm we headed to the Park Hotel for a bar meal and allow the bad weather to ease down.
As it was Valentine's Day we were a bit apprehensive as to what to expect so we opted for the bar lounge instead of the much posher restaurant. It would be very easy to post a negative comment about the bar lounge as it is rather dated and old fashioned looking but we like it the way it is.
We were served by a lovely, friendly receptionist who took our order and brought our meal in a matter of minutes. Our soup , main course and sweet were of a very high standard which we both felt was the best bar meal we had had in years.
The lounge bar at the Park Hotel in Peebles won't be to everyone's taste as it is a very quiet and reserved place to eat. However, if you want good food, prepared by a proper chef , and served by an attentive and friendly member of staff, then head to the Park Hotel. It sure beats those High Street pub lunches with frozen this and frozen that stuck in a microwave type meals, served by some disinterested waitress with the jukebox blaring with the end of a pool cue in your face. Yuk.
Gimme the Park any day of the week daddio. We will be going back for a bar lunch before the end of February.
