  • Older travelers

    The rooms are very clean a bit too warm though. The staff were fantastic very helpful and informative about the surrounding area. If they didn't know they went out there way to find out. Food was lovely

    Not much really just to warm for me in the room

  • Older travelers

    The welcome and service from all staff was outstanding. They contribute to a warm, friendly, relaxing atmosphere within the hotel throughout the day. Areas of the hotel are currently being refurbished and if the standard of the rooms are the same as room 49, this hotel should easily reach 4 star status. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast and most of the food is sourced locally and is well presented, plentiful with a wide variety to choose from. We will have no hesitation in returning and recommending. Well Done to all at the Tontine.

    There could be restricted parking in the rear car park on a busy weekend and it is advisable to take your luggage in through the main front entrance rather than via the rear car park which involves a few flights of stairs.

  • Family with children

    Missing from the list above are architecture and atmosphere, both of which are plus points for the Tontine. It is an old hotel in a small town, not a city, so all the main features of the settlement are just on the doorstep, yet it has views of hills from the elegant Georgian dining room. It was a real treat to have breakfast in this spacious room. The food was excellent - fresh, tasty, well presented. The staff were all extremely polite and helpful. The bed was comfy and ample and as well as the wherewithal for tea making there was real coffee! The window opened properly.

    They'd run out of real ale, but that was a small inconvenience! If you care about atmosphere, request a room in the old part of the hotel.

    the staff were very nice room comfortable and breakfast nice

  • Older travelers

    Superior double room was a good size and excellent refitted bathroom. These rooms are situated in an extension to the original hotel and several stairs and corridors involved but it did have a pleasant view of the River Tweed. The restuarant staff were very friendly and attentive for both breakfast and the evening meal.

    The general decor and furniture in bar and restaurant is seriously well worn and needs replacement. Parking spaces were limited but there was on street parking.

  • Single

    Excellent accomodation currently being redocorated internally. Parking can be a problem.

  • Older travelers

    The staff were excellent in all areas of the hotel. The B&B deal was good value and the breakfast was the best we enjoyed during a week of travelling around Scotland. The smoked haddock and poached egg was terrific.

  • Single

    The real concern of staff and management to provide an excellent experience without glitz or glamour was refreshing. My experiences recently have included various Thistle locations , Premier Inn , Travelodge and Hilton Inn .

    Didn't like the Parking.

  • Single

    A good value hotel, provided an above average experience - apart from the things mentioned below

    Shower totally inadequate, impossible to set the temperature and dribbled down the wall Charges for wi-fi are ridiculous and will put off business travellers like me

  • Family with children

    Superb food! We had dinner in the hotel and the meal was excellent. Great breakfast too. Friendly staff and a nice, clean room. Would certainly stay here again.

  • Single

    it was reasonably priced, comfortable, clean, if a little old fashioned in some areas. The hotel is in 2 halfs, original and 60s extension which is being refurbished. The management look to be up dating this newer area which needs it . The hotel has a local venue feel to it and is central in the town with lots of locals taking tea and cakes along with visitors. Nice atmosphere.

    My only complaint would be the distance from the car park to the room with luggage, it is a marathon and up about 6 flights of stairs. It is much easier to off load lluggage at the front entrance before parking in the car park below.

  • Older travelers

    The location and the dinning.

    The steep stairs, as my mother found them difficult at 90 years of age.

  • Couple

    Central to shops, restaurants. Nice area.

    The hotel is a wee bit dated, though is being refurbished. Room was nice, bathroom nice. This was a superior room, but a bit over priced. The staff were efficient and friendly. Quite noisey though, the floors need reinforced!

  • Older travelers

    Good, central location in Peebles, with off-street parking. Popular location for locals having coffeee in the lounge, as it apparently offers the best value in Peebles! Ground floor public areas are spacious, providing bar, lounge and dining facilities.

    The hotel needs a massive amount of money spent on it to make it more comfortable and a more welcoming destination. The bedrooms and corridors upstairs are old-fashioned and cramped, with 'brown' furniture everywhere! Even the more recently decorated public areas on the grould floor were looking tired and shabby, with the main carpet looking very stained. On arrival, ALL the staff were in a 'team meeting' and there were a number of guests waiting to be served. The team meeting could be seen and heard taking place in the dining room, and they were not concerned that guests were not being looked after - very disappointing.

  • Single

    Friendly staff, hotel in central location in Peebles, good food and drink, the bedroom was a bit tired but taking into account the price I paid it was fine for me.
