“Curate's Egg”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Stayed 2 nights on a winter break special offer, with wife, to celebrate a special birthday.
Impression was that the hotel is in the process of change - if the Bar is an example of the new image, I look forward to the remainder. Contemporary design, simple, tasteful and pleasant.
Main stairway and landings in the original building are tired and in need of a facelift.
We were on the top floor in a spacious, comfortable room with a view of the main street and with an en-suite bathroom. Dated decoration and quite a large gap under the door to the landing. Bathroom window in dire need of a coat of paint.
Lounge furniture will be going soon, I hope - either too soft or too hard.
Dining Room very large and with high ceiling ; good views to the surrounding hills. Never thought that Robert Adam and Minstrel's Gallery would ever share the same sentence never mind room ; there were no minstrels.
Chef seems determined to promote black pudding at every opportunity.
Plus point ; the staff. Excellent.
And, Peebles is a very busy and attractive town.

We are grateful and thank you for taking the time to post a review. Thanks for your kind comments. Refurbishment is “on-going” and we do indeed aim to tackle the stairwell and rooms in the original house this year. 2011 saw us concentrating on 4 bedrooms and the corridors in the Riverside Lodge.
The Lounge furniture is also being re-covered and re-upholstered, 2 x new sofas delivered in April and 2 further new sofas in May. We try hard to keep pace with up-grade and improving the hotel and find feedback from guests such as this review, constructive and indeed help us to focus and shape plans. Guest feedback is great. Thank you again for your review.
Gordon Innes.

We stayed at the Tontine for a long weekend while down for a hill race in the Pentland hills.
An excellent weekend in this hotel. Evening menu was great and the breakfast certainly provided a good start to the day.
We had a room at the top of the hotel facing the street and though a little noisy it wasn't too bad.
An excellent base for the Borders and close to the brilliant Glentress mountain bike centre

We are grateful and thank you for taking the time to post a review. Very glad to read that you enjoyed an excellent weekend and the food in particular. All guest reviews are shared with staff.
Thanks also for your “Tip” regarding our close proximity for Glentress. We are right in the centre of town with a “quick” bike ride to MTB @ Glentress.
Thank you again for your review.

This is the 5th time we have stayed at this hotel. The staff are very nice and over the past few years they have upgraded the hotel. Great hotel for a chill. Really reasonably priced. Food is excellent. We always go for an upgraded room with a river view. We will be back.

Room Tip: Go for a upgraded room with a river view. Nice and quiet.

My husband & I stayed here for our wedding anniversary, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, staff were all very helpful, food in the dining room was lovely and it was nice to enjoy table service in the lounge afterwards. Our bedroom had a lovely view of the river and a large comfortable bed, great shower too! Would definetely return.
