Stayed at Cringletie 10 years ago and was hoping our return visit would be just as good. We booked the tasty Sunday package and one night DBB. The place was just as we remembered. The Hotel is in a stunning location with lovely gardens to walk round. Bearing in mind we stayed in The Selkirk Suite on our first visit we knew there would be no comparison with the room we booked on this occasion, which was a luxury room, Glentress. The room was a nice room but we felt that it was looking a bit tired and was in need of refurbishment. The towels in the bathroom were poor. Small bath towels rather than bath sheets and they looked like they were very old and in need of replacing. One of the hand towels was ragged and frayed down both sides. Really not what you would expect in a luxury room or indeed any room. The dining room is lovely and the food was excellent. We really enjoyed the tasting menu which is well worth trying. Each course was described in detail along with the matching wines. Breakfast was good and the service throughout our stay was perfect. All the staff we met were happy, friendly and very obliging. We still love this place and would definitely stay again but unfortunately, on this occasion, we couldn't give it top marks.

This could not have been a better trip. We were given the Selkirk Suite which is the best room and had the Romantic package with Champagne for us when we arrived. The hotel is beautiful, in a gorgeous setting with a lovely walled garden to enjoy. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful and the food is wonderful. Beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend this but the hotel was fully booked the two nights we stayed so you will need to book ahead if you want to enjoy this little gem.

My husband booked us a few night for my birthday on our trip through Scotland, this was a beautiful hotel and all of the staff was very accommodating. If you are looking for a quaint countryside stay this is the place to be! Loved it!

A beautiful setting to begin our Scottish adventures. Excellent room. Spacious. Great bed. Chef should be congratulated on excelent dinner and breakfast. This is definitely on my retutn list. Also, the receptionist Ashley should be commended on her helpfulness.

On the occasion of me birthday, my wife took us to the Cringletie House Hotel for their Dinner Menu. Incredible experience and great value for money: the three-course menu (for £36.50) + coffee was enhanced by some canapés and an 'amuse bouche' of Cullen Skink (not my favourite). The food was excellently presented (more later); the service was superb - relaxed and not obsequious; the setting - Scottish country house - grand; first floor restaurant with painted cherubs on the ceiling and tartan carpets with views of green hills, trees and ubiquitous sheep; a really great niche find! The glass of Prosecco (not in the meal deal) was OK but a bit over-priced at £8.00 each; we were served 3 small canapés - pleasant but nothing to write much about; then I had - as a starter - the rare flat iron steak with a tasty blue cheese, walnut and rocket salad; my wife has the charred mackerel (which could have done with a little more tart flavouring); then we were served the 'amuse bouche' which didn't thrill me; breads were OK and I asked for some oil & balsamic vinegar to go with the ciabatta ('No problems'); my wife enjoyed the sea bass and Asian vegetables but this could have done with some additional limes - she got lemons; with tat she had a glass of the white Pays d'Oc - which she had to send back as it wasn't cold - the replacement was fine; my glazed breast of duck was a little too tough but the taste of the rest of the main plate was very good. I had a half-bottle of the Rioja Crianza - very pleasant (at £16.00). We decided that the mix of Cranachan and chocolate and cherries was too good not to share. Then coffee was brought - though I opted for a French coffee (another extra) but I wasn't driving. All in all a very pleasant evening.

Arrived to an imposing view of the hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The savoury afternoon tea was delicious with a selection of open sandwiches, savoury tartlets and cheese scones (which were light, fluffy and to die for) with chutney and cream cheese as well as pots of tea refilled as you like. Added to the lovely setting made this a welcome treat.

Our family stayed in April while spending a few days in the Peebles area. It's not a castle really, but a large baronial home. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast, which was included for us, was very hearty. The staff was kind. One night I booked the pre fixe menu in the dining room. The menu items sounded delicious but they didn't deliver in reality and I didn't think it was worth the price tag. On another night we ate from the bar menu and that food, which was much more reasonably priced, was quite good. I'd recommend eating off that menu if you are included to dine at the hotel. I think if they elevated their level of service and deigned to make the place more welcoming, it would be all the more hospitable and lovely.

Had dinner on two evenings whilst staying in the Borders. Interesting menu, good food, well prepared and presented. Stunning property and location. All the staff were very friendly. Will return to attend the 7 course dinner, bed and breakfast package in the future.

We held my daughters wedding here yesterday, 28th May. Everything from start to finish was first class. The hotel itself is stunning with lovely gardens and beautiful scenery round about you. A walk round the walled garden is a must with the lovely shrubbery and picnic area, along with garden games including chess and draughts. The staff could not do enough to make this a wonderful experience for everyone at the wedding. Johanna you should be very proud of every member of your team. They do a brilliant job!! Thanks again and we will definitely return to enjoy your hotel and the amazing food that we were served last night. It has been a long time since I have ate such tender, flavoursome piece of beef - again please pass on our thanks to your kitchen team and everyone else at Cringletie

Staff were so lovely and friendly from arrival to departure, so very welcoming. The room was very nice, the bath was so comfortable and a bonus treat. Walking the grounds was really good, the map given to us by staff meant we knew the routes to walk the surrounding countryside which was really useful and everything was so beautiful - lovely surroundings, peaceful with lots of wildlife ( saw many bird species and a deer as well as farm animals). breakfast each day was a real treat and well cooked with lovely views from the dining room. Dinner was very special with great tastes and presentation. Well worth the stay and would happily return as we came home completely relaxed and pampered
