We visited the Tontine Hotel for a night away in December. The staff were really helpful throughout our stay and they were very accommodating. We brought our dog who enjoyed all the attention she was given by everyone.

The Tontine managed a wonderful mixture of cosy and comfortable quality with informality. Large rooms, large beds, large baths. Very good choice of menu and quality food. But most of all the informal quality of it all. Hope to come again.....would divert plans to make it happen.

This is my second review of the Tontine following our second successive Christmas break there (see also last year's review dated 26/12/2015). We had such a wonderful break there last year that it was an easy decision to return this year. I won't go into the same level of detail of last year's review (it's easy to locate on here...

We booked the Lazy Sunday for a short break before Christmas. The hotel was lovely and really relaxing - just what was required. We enjoyed the evening meal that was included in the Lazy Sunday offer together with a fabulous Scottish breakfast in the morning. Would definitely stay again.

I stayed with my Mum at this hotel for a night on a flying visit to Scotland to see a close family friend who was in hospital. I chose it because of its central location in Peebles and the fact it had attached parking for my Mum who struggles walking. Price was average for the town. The hotel itself is...

From booking to arrival to departure the staff at the Tontine were friendly, helpful and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble and the service was outstanding - always attentive but never intrusive. There is a great atmosphere at the hotel, which is very dog-friendly. The food was first class (breakfasts and dinners) with lots of superb locally sourced produce. The...

The Tontine is lovely. It has been updated with stylish interiors but also maintains its original character - very good breakfast with commitment to local produce and good coffee . Room was very pleasant (room 2) and for once not overheated.
