Reviewed 23 January 2014

My husband, myself and our Labrador stayed like the previous reviewer, in room 34.
Certainly not the best for views but clean, warm and comfortable. Perhaps in need of a little TLC but we certainly wouldn't let that put us of staying again.
All the staff we met were extremely polite and helpful and the food was excellent. Beautifully presented and good quality. We ate in the Bar area for Dinner and Breakfast so that our Dog could be with us. Very appreciative of this.
As this was on an Itison voucher offer, we had a very good deal as this included an afternoon Prosecco tea.
We will most certainly return to The Tontine and thank the staff for making our stay so pleasant.

Room Tip: For views across the River Tweed do not book room 34! ..... Ask for a rear facing room.

Thank you very much for taking time to post your review via Tripadvisor. We do indeed allow Dogs in the Bar area, where well behaved Guests can also enjoy food and drink. I know this is much appreciated by our dog lovers!

My elderly mum and I just needed a wee break away from Edinburgh (only 40 minutes away) but the Tontine Hotel delivered everything that we wanted...and more...
We arrived to a very warm welcome from reception...and directed to room 34, which did not have a view, however, we did not plan on being in our room for long.
We had afternoon tea, and although the hotel was extremely busy (a funeral party), we enjoyed excellent service.
In the evening we had dinner, which was absolutely delicious, and once again the staff were amazing.
Had a great nights sleep in the most comfortable bed, then enjoyed a fantastic breakfast, served by very efficient, friendly staff....
Compliments to the Chef....Food was perfect....A huge thank you to "all" staff...so professional, yet warm and friendly....and to the "Management"....you've got a great team....you must be doing something right....credit where credit is due.... Will return for sure.... well done!

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.
