Take the scenic route
The Tontine Hotel is the ideal location for a Scottish motorbike break. See the beauty of the Scottish Borders as you drive around our smooth, quiet country roads. Stop off and explore the towns, pop down to a local pub for lunch, or treat yourself to afternoon tea with delicious cakes and rich, Scottish shortbread. We specialise in serving tasty seasonal food and local beers at a reasonable price. We understand motorbikers requirements and offer a drying room for your wet clothes; off-road space to safely store your bike; comfortable beds and warm showers. We do, and always will go the extra mile to ensure that we exceed your every expectation.
Suggested Motorbike Routes
The route from Peebles to Newcastle Ferry Port is a lovely scenic 123-mile ride which is just shy of four hours. Make a day of it and stop off halfway and do some exploring.
Our ‘Ton Tine Ton’ route is a gentle, 103-mile circular route that takes just over three hours to complete. It’s the best way of getting out and watching the local area fly past you.
The ‘Curvy Lady’ route provides a great tour of some of our neighboring towns including; Melrose, Kelso, and Hawick.
You don’t need to worry about storing your bike either. We have 2 secure & lockable garages the smaller of which comes with a power washer, bucket, and sponge for you to use if you need to. Many bikers who come and stay with us opt to leave their bikes between our two buildings, beneath the walkway because it’s safe and is an ideal spot to keep your bike dry overnight.
If you have any questions about storing your bike, or great bike routes, please ask us when you book.
