Poor staff

Stayed an overnight after deciding to spend the day in Peebles. Staff upon arrival seemed to just want to get you checked in and get you out the road, rooms were okay, very spacious although ion the bathroom there was a hole in the floor. At half past 6 in the morning the fire alarms went off and had to evacuate the building to find there was no fire it was actually water that had got into the fire alarms and without any attempt of apology from the staff member who told us to. "Just go back inside" to the staff in the morning of check out who didn't want to know.

Lofty Goals

The goal for this hotel to go from a 3 star to 4 star is quite feasible but many things need addressed. We stayed in 7 hotels in Scotland and this location had the most uncomfortable bed of any. Check in staff was friendly but the check out staff was 15 minutes late on my wake up call and argued if we had paid the bill or not. Food was good and table settings/glassware were all very nice but need new flooring. Drinks were a bit expensive but the bar had a nice atmosphere. Overall the setting and walking trails were very nice and it was a convenient location to Edinburgh and the Jedburgh area.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a nice little pub at the bottom of the road called the horseshoe, a country pub which although being a nice place to relax serves no draught beer and has waiter service for your drinks, although seemingly a little formal at first (and a little overpriced), its worth a visit, also your only alternative within walking distance to the hotel bar.

Should I share our secret escape ?

From the friendly and helpful staff, ( Manager, Graeme) to the magic hands (of Emma) in the Spa, this beautiful castle and location provided us with the warmest welcome and most enjoyable easter weekend stay. Attending a wedding on the Saturday was a delight and Colin, the concierge, was incredibly helpful and professional. The marriage service, conducted by Scottish Borders Council Registrar, Fiona, moved us to tears. The band, Night Talk, made the evening fly by and the food was plentiful and simply perfect. Definately going back. Swimming in the pool in the evening was romantic and peaceful. Thank you.
