Tontine Hotel Peebles Scottish Borders
Ranked #1 of 8 Hotels in Peebles
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 January 2014

A one night stay in this hotel in lovely Peebles-sadly not long enough! Staff are welcoming, efficient & friendly. Our room was in the front overlooking the high street-very clean large room with enormous bathroom. Facilities for making hot drinks, hairdryer, trouser press.Extra blanket provided. Only comment we would make is the windows not easy to open or keep open & would benefit from separate walk in shower but bearing in mind the age of the building (built 1808) that may not be easy. Food was very good quality & good value. Excellent breakfast.Lovely old building.

Room Tip: Rooms at back have views over the Tweed Valley

Thank you for taking time to post your review and we enjoyed learning of your satisfaction. We do have 3 rooms with "walk-in shower" and indeed other guest feedback regarding this point will allow us to review future refurbishment plans, with such provision. We are currently redecorating bedroom corridors in the "original house" with work due for completion by the end of February. We were pleased to note your comment regarding the age of the building and we are trying to add a contemporary feel to design and facilities while also retaining the grand design and history of the building.
Many thanks again for your great feedback!
Kate & Gordon Innes.

After an enjoyable visit to The Tontine last February we returned last weekend for an overnight stay on an Itison voucher.On both occasions we have found the staff(and owners)friendly without exception.We had afternoon tea inc scones and 2 glasses of Prosecco in The Adam Room -scaled down from last year when cakes were included.This is a good thing if you intend to dine out at night ! Breakfast was served in the same room-good to see all cooked food prepared in the kitchen and not dished out at the buffet.Although not a vegetarian I had the vegetarian breakfast-very tasty.Our room was in the old wing(38)-comfortable with a good sized bathroom.We will return !

We only stayed one night in Peebles but it was really nice . Room was lovely and cosy wonderful view of the hills and tweed river..the food was great as is usual too ... The only down side we could only stay one night !!! Would love to have stayed longer the comfort of this hotel makes it a must !!!! Try and enjoy as we have over the years.... Even if you can't stay go for a coffee or a meal you won't be disappointed.....

I booked the hotel over the New Year, meeting up with friends to bring in the “Bells”. The Hogmanay ceilidh was great fun, the dinner was excellent, considering the volume of guests, very good food. The hotel was full while we were there over 31/12/13 to 02/01/14; however there were plenty staff to give quality service to the guests.

The rooms we had was relatively large and a good size bathroom. We were in the annex/extension to the rear of the property.

Breakfast is served in the original drawing room Adams fireplace and all! The a la carte breakfast menu was very good, good quality produce on the full Scottish, and chose the Kippers one morning.

The lounge area was perfect for relaxation and having wee nightcap; very comfortable chairs, settees and a wonderfully warm fire. The Bistro restaurant lunch menu looked appetising, but alas we had prior engagements.

The hotel is situated on the High St, in the heart of Peebles; a beautiful Border Town, we had a wonderful stay, and as the hotel is only 30 miles from home I would certainly lunch in the Bistro next time in Peebles.

Thank you very much indeed for such a great positive review. We concur with your tip regarding a refurbished room. The quieter time of year allows us to proceed with yet more refurbishment to rooms and we start a redecoration of "Old House" corridors in February!

Having just returned from a one night stay I just wanted to let all readers of TripAdvisor Reviews know that this Hotel is first rate for service, food and friendliness. My husband and I, who actually run a Guest House, bought an Itison Deal and were absolutely deighted with our purchase. On arrival we had scrumptious scones with cream and jam plus a glass of Prosecco each along with tea/coffee. We booked for dinner and again it was absolutely delicous served piping hot on a lovely hot plate - topmarks to the chef.
We can't wait to make a return visit. Thanks very much.
