I thank you for the feedback and regret that this was not resolved on the property itself which in itself is also far from the standard we aspire to achieve Thank you again and do get in contact to discuss this further Peter Davidson General Manager

Good hotel

The hotel and staff are very good. The dining experience is not so good. On the evening there was an empty restaurant with 8 staff members behind the bar and we told it would be a 2 hour wait. We went to Peebles instead. And for breakfast it took 30 minutes before our orders were even taken. How such a quiet hotel with so many staff members can run such a badly organised restaurant is beyond me. But everything else was very good.

Great Location

This hotel was comfortable and in a great location for exploring the borders and Edinburgh. Niki in the restaurant was a great host for breakfast and the service was great. The only negative was all the furniture in our room was chipped and tired and the carpets in the general corridors were threadbare.

More public space

Pros: rooms satisfactory,staff nice
Cons: could do with building a conservatory for eating.
Location: near to Glentress for mountain biking and close to Peebles for shgops.
Hotel was satisfactory,reception staff pleasant,however disappointed with the lack of restaurant and eating facilities for the size of the hotel.We had to phone a local restaurant to get a decent evening meal on the night we arrived or wait 3 hours for a table at the restaurant. When I asked at reception she said we should have booked the evening meal at the same time as booking the hotel...never done this at any hotel before. Even at breakfast the staff did their best but waited for some time to get food as the numbers eating was too much for them to cope with.
