Excellent hotel! We stayed in the Innes room and our son had a standard room. The rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable. We had a room on the front, which despite being on the main street, was quiet and comfortable. We were welcomed by Laura, who was friendly, helpful and welcoming. We ate in the restaurant and the food was amazing, extremely high quality. The waiting staff were all friendly and helpful and helped make the whole experience wonderful. We really enjoyed our stay at the Tontine and will definitely be back.

Popped in here for lunch on a wee visit to Peebles. What a beautiful dining room. Very elegant with high ceilings, chandelier and tastefully decorated with pretty art on the walls which you can purchase.Our meals were lovely. Two courses for £13.95! what a steal. Two of our party of 3 had vegetarian haggis with neaps for the starter and third person chose the creamy goats cheese. beautifully presented and very tasty. we each chose different mains. fish and chips with peas which was beautiful and fresh. Macaroni cheese was really creamy and tasty and accompanied with garlic bread. The third meal was the pie of the day. chicken and bacon with mash and veg. Well presented, quick service and really tasty. what a great find. we will be back. we noticed that they do roast dinners on Sundays too so will Tey to return for that.

I had a wonderful stay in the Tontine at end of August 2023, and I highly recommend it! I emailed reception to see if there was any space for me and my dog. Laura emailed back right away confirming there was space available and there was an offer on including dinner, bed and breakfast. Booking directly was much cheaper than using a booking site. The room was lovely, the bed very comfy, the en-suite was spacious and modern - all very clean. There was a desk in the room so I could work, the wifi worked great. I really enjoyed every meal I had at the Tontine, lots of veggie and even vegan options and a good selection at breakfast. The staff are absolutely amazing, they can’t do enough for you. They’re so helpful, and friendly, they always brought water for my dog (dog dining area separate to main area). A few times I asked to order lunch to my room while I worked, and every time someone offered to deliver it. I ask to extend my stay, and the lovely team on reception sorted it for me. Peebles is a beautiful place to visit, there are so many great walks nearby. Highly recommend, I’ll deffo be back.

Fantastic Hotel. Cycling LEJOG, this hotel was fabulous. Heather and other staff could not have been more helpful. Room was super peaceful with everything I needed. Real comfort after some hard days in the saddle. The best cycle storage on the entire route as well. Really conveniently located in Peebles. A great experience

Afternoon tea with friends! This was our first visit. Seated at a table where customer flow reduced the ambience, which was disappointing!Were given a choice of sandwiches from the menu! Scones were rather too large!No cakes. Flapjacks and Macrons in the main were choice of sweet treats!

Good 3 star hotel. Located in the centre of Peebles. Surrounded with all amenities. I recommend it for a short stay of 2 nights. Rooms are quite old and small. Service and food are excellent.

We were in Peebles for a wedding. The staff was very helpful & accommodating. The only downside was the room was very warm with only 1 tiny fan to cool off with. We kept the windows open at night to bring in cooler air, but it didn't help much.Our room was on the top floor...

Very good ambience with good food, do not miss on trying the 2 course meal which I find very reasonable, had chicken and leek pie which was fantastic and and and do not miss on sorbet I think after long time I had a proper flavourful sorbet, lime mango and raspberry, wow I relished each scoop and taste still lingers around my mouth brilliant

Five stars. The Tontine Hotel and the town of Peebles together are WONDERFUL ❤. 5 stars for the Hotel. Peebles and the Tontine Hotel are an outstanding example of Scottish life and early architecture where things were made of stone and wood. The Tontine Hotel is the quintessential experience of Scots hospitality and the quaint colorful village is just a short drive from Edinburgh.
The Tontine Hotel is warm and cozy. The food is fabulouuus! my room had not only a towel warmer in the bath but also a trouser press in the corner of the room. Premium bath amenities. very thoughtful.
My room number was number 1 not 101. It's the real deal ...with history and soul you can feel when you walk in.. Vintage and Aged i wish I could retire there.

I stayed at the Tontine recently for a wedding. I was travelling alone with my 3 year old child. The hotel could not have done more for us and to make sure we both enjoyed our stay.
From making sure I had a drink in my hand when I couldn’t get to the bar, to offering to get us food from the buffet, someone was always making sure we were considered. Their flexibility and thoughtfulness really meant a lot to me. I’d definitely stay here again.

The tontine offers you wonderful hospitality as soon as you walk through the door! You will be met with a warm welcome and a genuine smile!
Seasonal cocktails are a win and their range of wines and whisky are just fantastic! If your the nominated driver you have a good choice of non alcoholic beers and mocktials.
I’ve ate here a couple of times and the menu is fabulous, no matter what time of the day. Food is freshly prepared and produce is locally sourced. I like the slight quirkiness of the menu and you can tell the chef puts pride into how your food is presented.
The rooms are just beautiful and the Tontine is a beautiful place to stay on the heart of Peebles x
