One for adrenaline chasers

Whether you're a total beginner or a mountain biking pro we can guarantee that there's a route to suit you.  Our proximity to Glentress and the Red Bull down-hill and cross country trails at Innerleithen means we have a remarkable number of resident bike lovers, who are keen to share their biking experience with visitors to the valley.  

At The Tontine Hotel, we’re located in the centre of Peebles, so we’re less than 3 miles away from some of the UK's most coveted mountain bike routes at Glentress. It has a reputation amongst many biking journalists of being one of the best, dedicated mountain bike centres the UK has to offer, and is suitable for use all year round, so you can trust that you’ll get a chance to try the trails.

These trails provide climbs, rocky chutes, drop offs, technical singletracks, and blindly fast descents so can guarantee an adrenaline rush for any mountain bike lover. The Black route is 30kms of pure biker exhilaration! If you run into any issues with your bike before you set out come and have a chat to one of our team members and we will happily let you know who can help you fix the problem.

And when you come back from the great outdoors you can rest assured that we have everything in hand.  We offer the following facilities to cyclists staying at the Tontine:  Secure bike storage teamed with Kryptonite locks so you can enjoy peace of mind that your bike is safely stored away; pressured bike wash; bike maintenance stand; 36 bedrooms with powerful, hot showers; access to our boiler room for drying clothes;  private parking for guests, delicious wholesome meals made with locally sourced ingredients; wonderful local beers; cocktails; all topped off with a great biker welcome and some excellent biking offers. 

The hotel offers an excellent base for those who would like to be within reach of the trails but also within easy walking distance to the other facilities in Peebles town centre.
