Lovely location near Neidpath castle where we were going to for a wedding. Very comfortable room and facilities- breakfast and the bar have very nice decor and the food and drinks were excellent.Also a shoutout to the staff who were incredibly kind, understanding and helpful when they heard of our nightmare journey filled with train cancellations and stress.Parking is also very useful!Would absolutely love to go back and would highly recommend anyone to stays

We had a lovely room on the first floor looking out onto the High Street, no street noise , very big comfortable bed and spacious bathroom. As always the staff were helpful, friendly and welcoming. B,&,B + dinner for our 2 nights stay . Would definitely recommend to all. The hotel has been refurbished and is it's very nice to sit in the lounge and just relax.

Stayed the weekend of the 14th and 15th October 2022 and what a fantastic stay we had from start to finish. Room was excellent and the service we had was also excellent could not fault anything. The breakfast was outstanding infact we didn't need anything else to eat until evening. We'll done to all staff who made our stay special.Gary and Jenny Forbes

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.

We only visited for a drink, so the rating only applies to the bar.The choice of beers was reasonable and there was comfortable seating. Service was a bit patchy, though to be fair it was mid-afternoon when we visited.

This is a lovely place to stay, in a lovely town too! I stay here whenever I can when travelling through the borders. Great friendly staff, excellent food and nice comfortable rooms in a beautiful historic building with the high street out front, and the river at the back, what more could you want?!

Fascinating early history , it seems that French prisoners from the Napoleonic wars were shipped up to Scotland and were involved in its construction , a proper minstrels gallery in the main room

A little disappointed with the service. Very long wait before we got our meal & coffee at the end. The food was good but not outstanding. However I'm sure it's a lovely place to actually stay. Beautiful inside the hotel which must date back to either late 18th century or early 19th.

All of the hotel staff that we met were very friendly and efficient - a real credit to the hotel. The meal that we had in the Bistro was excellent and breakfast was good too. Our group had 2 rooms. One had been refurbished with a very nice new bathroom. The other room had not yet been refurbished and was a bit jaded.

A very short break to recharge from a period of providing care for elderly parents. I have often stayed at the Tontine therefore it was my first choice to return there. I found the price rather expensive - I do understand the post pandemic challenges however as a regular visitor there were no offers or enticements for me to stay loyal to the hotel.

This hotel is great. Food is good cleanliness is exceptional staff are very helpful and polite. I would have given it 5 stars if accessibility to the rooms was easier, saw too many older guests struggling with cases etc trying to either climb stairs or brave the hill adjacent to hotel. But would go back.

We didn't stay, just had a meal in the restaurant. As others have said, the place needs upgrading - it was like going back in time, both in terms of decor and menu. We both had the beef roast, which was uninspiring and parts of the meat needed a steak knife; inedible. The staff however were cheerful and helpful.

The Tontine Hotel is one of the loveliest accommodations we have stayed at. We have had the privilege to stay here twice with the Tontine team and would do so again and again when visiting Peebles. We booked rooms for roughly 10 other people for a wedding anniversary party on our second visit. The impeccable customer service spoiled us at the Tontine and the staff started to feel like part of the family. The breakfast, coffee and dinner were delicious and the location of the hotel right on the high street was excellent. All of our guests slept comfortably and enjoyed relaxing and dining in the hotel. The check out was seamless and the staff understood our needs sometimes before we did. The amenities were great and the shower was spacious and updated. The beds were large and clean and the sheets were of high quality. I have and will continue to recommend the Tontine to friends and family and we very much look forward to seeing Kate and the rest of the team sometime soon. Thank you again to the Tontine!

Up in Peebles to visit family and they booked us into the bistro for lunch. I can honestly say that it was a most pleasurable experience. To have a decent menu in covid times was nice. Coupled with very attentive old school waiting on service ( thanks Callum ) was brilliant. I'm working class but i get fed up with sloppy table service . All of our party had different meals and enjoyed them , and the way the dishes were presented. The ice cream I had for desert was superb,and local. Top marks for helping us to enjoy a special day. Sea bass excellent. Lovely old days feel wandering around Peebles. Plus sun . Champion !

Another lovely stay at the Tontine hotel, loved everything minute of it Perfect location, right in the centre of Peebles. Beautiful room with a view over the hills and stunning bathroom. The hotel has so much character, it was a delight to stay here again. Carpark at the back of the hotel although it gets full quick otherwise plenty spaces in the street still at the back. The hotel has secure storage for bikes which is a plus. Beautiful breakfast with plenty to choose and gorgeous cocktails from the bar.The staff is brilliant, very pleasant, helpful and friendly, it is always a pleasure to visit.

Great stay, superb food, very friendly and helpful staff. Covid measures still in place with evidence of cleanliness easily seen. All requests dealt with efficiently, the fact the owners and family are hands on gives the hotel a homely feel. Some rooms on the back of the hotel have uninterrupted views of the Tweed, definitely worth upgrading for. These rooms are serviced by a small lift and most have walk in showers. A most enjoyable stay.

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

Enjoyed our first dinner out since Lockdown tonight. They were certainly conforming to current requirements with hand sanitiser, spacing tables out, customers wearing masks when moving about, staff wearing masks, regular cleaning and contact details taken.
Service and food were excellent. Certainly good value for money under the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme. Would definitely recommend.

A fabulous takeaway dinner from our much-loved Tontine tonight, greeted warmly as always even though no Beltane Saturday! I’d only just arrived to collect our food & had to go pick up my hubby who’d had a puncture at Stobo (exemplary timing as always😄) and the guys insisted on re-doing our meals when I got back. Delicious food as always, thanks all❤️🤍❤️

We spent a wonderful few days at the Tontine Hotel Peebles. Thoroughly recommend this hotel. Breakfasts & meals were excellent. Rooms were very comfortable & well equipped. Staff were very helpful & friendly. It is a pet friendly hotel too, which was great for our spaniel. Hope to return soon.

What a great place to stay right in the middle of Peebles. We had room 17, it may be a trek to get there 😁😁 but well worth it. The staff cannot do enough for you and are ALL very friendly and helpful.

While we were up in Scotland. Barbara and I stayed at the Tontine hotel in Peebles. To put it plainly the hotel was excellent. The rooms were very comfortable, with very good bathrooms and more than adequate showers. The staff virtually fell over themselves to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Very friendly and helpful to the extreme. Breakfast was included and not this coffee and dried up pastries that some places provide. Here it’s a full breakfast, sat in a dining room and, cooked to order. Located about 30 miles south from Edinburgh. It is ideally located within easy reach of the city. I would recommend the Tontine to anyone who plans a visit to Scotland.

We had a lovely lunch with you today.

our soup and sandwiches were absolutely delicious.

The girl that served us was so polite, friendly and attentive. One of the best waitresses I have ever been served by anywhere . Unfortunately I didn't get her name but I hope you pass on our thanks. (long dark hair, foreign accent. we were in at 12pm).

We are so disappointed we didn’t book here , instead we booked another hotel near by which was not to our standard .
The owners daughter greeted us however here and offered a drink and was kind enough to show me about the most amazing dining room ever seen . Hands on this lass Is and the manager was amazing , again proud of an amazing product . Highly recommend. Only realised later friends of mine stayed here recently from Essex on a golf tournament. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Stayed here for our 1st anniversary and had a wonderful time. Every member of staff is helpful & friendly. We found an anniversary card on our table at dinner, and then offered a drink on the house to celebrate. I’m a vegetarian and don’t always want something fancy to eat, I asked to have the Sunday roast without the beef and stuffed mushrooms in its place. My request was met with no problem & I thoroughly enjoyed it. However then I saw the vegetarian paella which looked amazing … I’ll be having that next time!! Breakfast was lovely too. The room was clean & cozy with a gorgeous view of the river. We will definitely return to the Tontine to stay, and also pop in anytime we might be passing to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. Thank you for your kindness Team Tontine, it was much appreciated.

Spotless, cosy room, friendly staff, excellent food, felt very at home in Tontine Hotel. Downside was the noise all night with traffic, strange noises like a generator, banging and tappings . Thought my room was haunted! It looked on to the High Street, hopefully rooms at the back would be quieter.

The staff made our 2 nights really special. They couldn’t do enough for us and our dog. We all had a lovely meal for my wife’s birthday and I don’t think we have laughed as much for ages and all the staff and other customers joined in to make it a special evening. Fantastic stay and will be back.

The food was excellent and the staff were, in the main, really polite and attentive. One waiter was brusque and mixed up an order, which seemed to be our fault. He kept telling us he couldn’t hear - it was all a bit Manuel from Fawlty Towers, without the humour though. It was all a bit It’s so disappointing when things like this happen. It was a birthday lunch for my mum and the first time we had had my dad, who isn’t well, out for a while. Shame because everything else was really good.
