The Tontine Hotel dates back to 1808 and is the only building on Peebles High Street which is set back from the road, forming a small open square to the front of the building. The building takes its name from the way in which it was funded; the tontine principle, and it is thought that Napoleonic prisoners of war may have helped to build the hotel. A plaque on the front of the building commemorates this.
Nowadays, The Tontine is a family owned, comfortable and modern 36 room hotel with a popular restaurant, bar and bistro.
