Edinburgh hosts the largest arts festival in the world. It’s a world-class city. And all just up the road. Good times!
With Peebles being so close to Edinburgh, it’s a great base for experiencing all that the Edinburgh festivals have to offer throughout July and August – from the Edinburgh International Film Festival (20 June – 1 July) to the Jazz and Blues festival (13-22 July), to the Fringe (3-27 August) and spectacular Edinburgh Military Tattoo (3-25 August).
And by staying here at the Tontine you get the best of both worlds – you save on your accommodation when compared to Edinburgh hotels and B&B’s and you get to stay in one of the most beautiful, authentic towns in Scotland.
2 nights Bed & Breakfast from only £90 per person.
This offer is based on 2 people sharing a standard Twin or Double room, Sunday through Thursday. 1st July – 28th August 2018. Supplements apply for Classic room upgrades & weekend stays. Subject to availability.
