This hotel on the borders is situated in an ideal position to visit Edinburgh and the countryside surrounding this area. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the food is excellent and varied and the staff were very pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. Peebles is a quiet, but friendly place and we would certainly visit the area again.

Room Tip: As this is a historic hotel, the rooms are located on various levels. There is no lift available, s...

Thank you very much for taking the time to write your comments via your post and following your visit to the hotel in August. Particularly grateful to read your notes regarding staff and quality of food.
You make some good constructive comments about rooms and accessibility. Bedroom Nos 30 – 39 located in the Riverside lodge are the most accessible via 14 stairs only.

We stayed for two nights at the Tontine and had dinner in the hotel on the first night. Our room was a long way from reception, but we were rewarded with a lovely view over the River Tweed to the heather-coloured hills beyond. The food was simply excellent, both at dinner and at breakfast, and we were particularly impressed with the politeness, attentiveness and efficiency of the staff we met - clearly they are well trained, but they also seemed to enjoy their work and chatted freely to guests. Unlike Danielle N (see earlier review), we could feel the place at which the two beds had been zipped together to create a massive double and as ever these days in hotels the bedroom lighting wasn't really sufficient to make reading easy, but these are relatively minor grumbles in what was overall a very pleasant, comfortable and enjoyable stay. Top marks for the food!

Thank you very much for taking the time to write your comments via your post and following your visit to the hotel in August. Lynn’s Travel has been coming every year now and everyone does enjoy the trip to Peebles and the Edinburgh Tattoo in particular. You make some good constructive comments about rooms and accessibility with all bedrooms (30 -39, 10 in total) in the Riverside Lodge being accessed via 14 steps, these being easiest to access.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review and we are grateful for the positive feedback. You did stay in one of our standard rooms and if you do visit again in the future be sure to ask for an up-grade to a classic or recently refurbished room. Thanks also for the good information about the town, we know its a great place to visit.
