“Excellent stay at the Cardrona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

Excellent stay and value for money. Hotel clean and well kept, staff were very helpful and polite. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection!
Room had beautiful view over looking golf course and hills on the other side and bed very comfortable. Pool facilities great. Lovely walk into Peebles if you follow the paved old railway line. Lots to do around. Will be back with my dog next time.
Many thanks to all the staff at the Cardrona Hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for view out to the golf course.

Booked a dbb break for a dew days for the easter holidays and headed off with the grandchildren. Great spot for an hotel with big rooms and fine views over the border countryside. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful especially the housekeeping department who went out of there way to oblige. In fact it would be difficult to fault this hotel but we did not have a good experience on a couple of the mealtimes. It would apoearvthat in a nutshell the dining room (which is very good) is too small to cater for a lot of guests and eating in the lounge can be a lengthy and frustrating experience. Breakfast before they set up the buffet for the hot food was an endurance test which would have been fine if you had had something to eat and had for ever to wait. They seemed to get that sorted but really such a basic part of hotel service should never have been such a disaster. All the other facilities that were available were good but the kids play area did not exist and the archery was only available if the quad bike guy was not too busy.All in all a good stay let down by a couple of poor experiences.

Thank you very much for your review.

I am sorry you were dissapointed in the restaurant. We do have plans to extend the hotel in 2014 to give us larger spa and dining areas.

I hope we can welcome you all back.

We had a lovely comfortable stay. The food in the restaurant is worth a trip by itself. The staff are extremely pleasant. Only complaint is prices in the snack bar downstairs - - a bit too pricy!
We will definitely stay again.

This is the second time we have stayed in a Macdonld Hotel, our first being the hotel overlooking Windermere. We were therefore expecting a high standard and we were not disappointed. From the minute we arrived the staff could not have been more helpful. The food was excellent and the view from the dining room over the golf course and river was beautiful. Facilties in the spa were excellent and we will certainly be back. If you are looking for a quiet hotel in this general area with stunning views and excellent service then this hotel will fit the bill.

Room Tip: The hotel is a few miles from Peebles and it is certainly worth while considering eating in the rest...

I have stayed in this hotel a number of times and it just gets better and better. The rooms are lovely, the staff couldn't do enough for you and their boogie night Xmas nights are a must try.

We have had treatments in the spa and Linda us very professional in offering advice and the spa ladies are lovely. Spikes bar is lovely and you can sit outside and look over the golf course and watch the world go by.

Breakfast is amazing and the bar and waiting staff are polite friendly and work so hard.

We will be back I,m sure before our Xmas party night this year because I know I want to.

Thanks Cardrona see you soon Gail x

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking golf course are lovely

Booked a lady minute deal over the Easter weekend at this great hotel. Beautiful location with very attentive staff and surprisingly good food for a hotel restaurant. Only downside was a slightly uncomfortable bed. If you are looking for a good quality hotel in Peebles look no further.

Great weekend away. Great area. Lovely walks round the Hotel. Great views across the golf course. facilities at the hotel were first class and so were the staff. Will definitely be returning. The only reason why it was not a five was because quite a delay at breakfast but other than that a first class hotel. Food was also so good here.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the hotel.
