“Work in progress”
Having been a couple who have stayed at Peebles on many occasions although the last time being 7 years ago we were well aware that money needed to be spent on all areas of the hotel.
Where to start must have been a nightmare! However we were pleasantly surprised at the improvements that have been started and there were so many good things about our stay at Peebles that I’ve decided to number them and so –
Number 1 We were offered excellent rates owing to the hotel being in a state of change
Number 2 The staff, although a lot were very new, went out of their way to be helpful. Always a good thing!
Number 3 The food although different to the norm at Peebles was very good.
Number 4 The beds themselves had been changed the morning we arrived. Very comfortable and excellent high quality linen.
Number 5 The grounds were in excellent condition too.
Our only gripes were at the dinner table we were served wine in tumblers and the lay out of the dining room is not yet quite right.
We loved the gin bar! But not sure if it’s in the right place.
One thing is for certain, we will return.
Room Tip: Ask for a room which looks over the hills at the front of the hotel
