“Excellent Hotel with Character and Hospitality.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2013

I have stayed at this hotel many times with my family over the years.Management and staff are always welcoming and helpful. Food excellent both in restaurant or bistro, and the rooms are all clean and lovely, especially the ones in the old part which are full of character; wood beams, sloping ceilings etc. Built on a hill there are alot of steps and stairs, but we love the place and hope to return many times in the future.

Room Tip: If mobility is a problem tell them in advance so that a suitable room can be allocated, there are al...

Thank you very much for posting such a great review following your most recent stay. So pleased you have visited again and you also provide an excellent room tip regarding the accessibility of certain rooms. There are many stairs in the building and all bedrooms in the "Lodge" and numbers 30-39 have the least amount of stairs to negotiate (14).

Just returned, with my partner and 2 teenage boys, from an overnight stay at this lovely hotel where the staff were really friendly and professional. I took up the " Lazy Sunday Offer" that had been advertised on their website which was an overnight stay with dinner and breakfast included for £60 per adult and £40 for the boys who also got their own room!. I had been looking for a place to stay as we were going to do the Go Ape adventure at Glentress and this fitted the bill. The meals were superb and to a high standard with the waiting staff making sure we were enjoying everything to the full, which after all the courses we certainly were!! The only minor point was that we all thought that the bed pillows were a bit too firm, but I'm sure that they would've been changed had we mentioned it at reception without any bother if we were staying more that the one night.
All in all excellent value, would thoroughly recommend and thank you once again to all the staff for your hospitality.

Room Tip: We stayed in Rm 37 which had a nice view of the River Tweed and village Green.

Returned once again to the best Hotel in the Peebles area. From the moment we stepped back into the Hotel we were greeted warmly by the staff. Nothing changed just excellent food and very good rooms. Sarah once again looked after us with all our golf and made sure we were all looked after as we are accustomed to. The dinning room staff always made sure our meals were served with the usual care and a smile to go with it. I might just add that the quality and presentation of all meals were first class. All eight of us agreed we cannot find anywhere better.

Lovely hotel in the centre of Peebles with pleasant surroundings and friendly, professional staff. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and look forward to returning for a longer stay. Having enjoyed morning coffee with fantastic gluten free cake, evening meal and breakfast I can highly recommend this hotel for coeliac sufferers. My husband and two friends also enjoyed their selections from the dinner and breakfast menus.

Room Tip: We were in Room 1 - comfortable with ensuite shower (view of the river). Friends in Room 2 - four p...

The staff were always cheerful and helpful. The food for the wedding breakfast was excellent in stunning surroundings. Our room with a view was very comfortable and the hotel is lovely. I have no complaints so well done TeamTontine.

A friend and I had entered this bike race which was held yesterday. We stayed at theTontine the night before. The staff could not have been more pleasant, co-operative and helpful. The crowning point was when we arrived back from the race, soaked to the skin and were instantly offered a hot shower (and not charged for it). It was divine. Borders hospitality is the warmest in the world.
Incidentally, the beef and ale pie for dinner was superb! I'd recommend it very highly. Looking forward to seeing you next year!
