“Convenient in lovely area”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

This hotel is in same group as Peebles and Crieff Hydros. It is close to the river in Peebles and very convenient for exploring this border town. Once a private house, it retains many original features and has had additions over the years. Much smaller and less grand than the nearby Hydro, guests can make full use of the complimentary Hydro spa and pool facilites.

Room Tip: Pool and fitness centre are at Peebles Hydro. Views are best to the rear of the hotel.

arrived at booking in time to be told room not ready so had a walk round the town .on going back to hotel was given a key card with a number that did not match the room number on pointing this out was told that it would be ok it would still work asked for correct number to be written on card on going to allocated room discovered it was a single room we had booked a double .on informing reception they said rooms were allocated at Crieff and they had got it down as a double said we might have to transfer to hydro .I told them no chance I had booked a room in the park and they had to honour my booking a couple were moved from a double to a twin room and we had their room. When things were sorted out we had a lovely stay, food was excellent, staff
could not be more helpful special mention for Val the receptionist very efficient and helpful. summing up enjoyed our stay after initial confusion had a nice stay but Crieff want to sort this booking system out it is not acceptable in this day and age to travel hundreds of miles to be messed about on arrival .would I stay here again most definitely could do with a bit of redecorating but if they change too much they will spoil it like another hotel we used to stay in when we visited peebles.

Room Tip: rooms are best on the back no road noise.

We booked a two night stay at the Park Hotel because friends had recommended it. Imagine our disappointment when we arrived only to be told that they had no room for us - the new central booking system at Crieff Hydro (the new owners of the Park) had messed up. Apparently Crieff should have contacted us to advise that we were being transferred to sister hotel Peebles Hydro about 15 minutes walk away but had not. The reception staff at the Park were most sympathetic but could do nothing as they were completely full and offered us a bar supper on the house.
Having travelled 150 miles from Aberdeen we felt we had little option but to accept the transfer. To be fair we were given an acceptable room at the Hydro, the restaurant staff at breakfast were attentive and the breakfasts were good. However we did feel let down that we did not get our choice of hotel even though our booking had been confirmed several weeks earlier.

Room Tip: Avoid room 134 at the Hydro which is opposite the games room - children stay up late nowadays !

This hotel is almost in the center of this small town. The hotel is very nice with large function rooms and a restaurant. There is an impressive wooden staircase.

Staff was friendly and helpful and there was a safe overnight storage for my bicycle.

The room was very nice with a bed, a small desk, a flat screen TV and free coffee/tea making facilities.

The bathroom was nice and clean and had a tub.

Free WiFi internet worked well, with a good average download speed, enough for streaming media.

In the morning there was a nice cooked breakfast.

Taking all into account this hotel has an excellent price/quality ratio and is very much recommended.

This hotel is badly needing refurbished. Everything is tired and old fashioned. Bedrooms are a great size and on the rear of the hotel have wonderful views. However mattresses are badly needing replaced and we had a very poor nights sleep.
The dinners are very disappointing. Staff not trained correctly, choice of food poor and all rather heavy and not of a correct "dinner" standard for the grade of hotel.
I understand the hotel has been sold and hope the new owners get going soon and upgrade this hotel. It is in a superb position and with beautifully sized rooms but until then we will give it a miss
