“Wonderful Hotel experience”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

I would recommend The Tontine Hotel in Peebles to anyone who wants a quiet break in this picturesque Borders town. The hotel is stunning and unique. Staff could not be more helpful.They are very friendly and went out of their way to help us enjoy all aspects of our stay. We had dinner, bed and breakfast and the food was absoultely suberb and the service excellent. Thank you to all staff for making our stay so pleasant. We will definitely return.

Staff are all courteous, friendly and importantly seem to enjoy working here. Bedroom with large comfortable double bed, small wall mounted tv and free internet access. Nice bathroom, plenty of large fluffy towels, only small criticism is the shower was not thermostatic and had to be controlled from the bath taps.
Nice restaurant with a splendid dinning room. If making a dinning reservation ask for one of the tables at a window. Food I found to be good value, you could still get a Sunday roast at 8:00pm. Better than average wine by the glass. Breakfast selection is also very good, with hot food served to your table not the all too typical buffet. Well located with parking. Stayed a Sunday and Monday with my wife who was attending a course. We will definitely come back.

2013 December we had a night out here with stay over. It was a great night there was 8 in our party, the hall the set out nicely not big but enough for atmosphere. Meal was lovely. The room was to back of hotel with views of river. Nice room very thing there that you need for overnight stay. Breakfast was good plenty of options to hit the spot as a hangover cure! Would certainty go back and Peebles itself is a lovely town and often go there for walk and ice cream with my Dad.

Thank you "Di_50_13" for a great review following your visit to the hotel last Christmas. Your review coincides with a recent meeting we all had to start the plans for Christmas and New Year 2014/15. We agree very much with your observations and comments that we are a great venue for an overnight Xmas break, whether enjoying with family and friends or work colleagues. Do hope you may decide on another "Festive visit"

My wife and I stayed here for two nights over a weekend. We had a very pleasant stay and must say that all the staff were very polite, well mannered and did their jobs perfectly. We were on a bed and breakfast basis and on our 1st evening ate in the hotel dining room and were both served a meal of a very high quality. On our 2nd night we decided to visit a local ethnic restaurant which was very close by. The hotel is located perfectly half way along a High street with lots of interesting little shops and very few chain stores. This meant that lots of locals used the facilities of the hotel which is a good sign. Our room was at the rear of the the main building with views of the river Tweed and the surrounding countryside. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone that recognises a classy establishment when they see one.

Many thanks "tyljam5" a Fantastic review via TripAdvisor. You make a number of excellent comments, for which we are very grateful. We particularly liked your observation that many locals use the hotel restaurant, bistro and bar.

The Tontine offers old world class and style with modern rooms and excellent customer service. The Lounge and Dining Room offer comfort and service that is rarely seen in today's busy modern lifestyle whilst the rooms offer the comfort and warmth that you would expect from a hotel. The hotel is located in the centre of the town but parking is provided, it is ideally situated to go exploring. The best asset to the hotel was the staff, they were friendly, welcoming and above all offered a genuine welcome. I would happily recommend the hotel to anyone wishing to visit Peebles.
