At a wedding. Venue was stunning: from the entrance from the main road; to the first view of the castle; to walking inside, it was just magical. The staff were super professional and extremely helpful and the facilities were excellent. It is all set in beautiful surroundings. The Polish Map of Scotland was a surprise. I'd never heard of it before. It was impressive.

We went for the Polish Map which is worth a trip to. And donation only and glad the hotel is so accommodating. What's not to loveGreat history of Polish and British (Scottish) camaraderie!

A beautiful place to relax and with good value for money . The restaurant offers a good choice of food and I had a good experience of cooking my steak in the lava rock a must try if you love steak .. and the spa treatment is a good way of relaxing too I felt rejuvenated after my aroma therapy massage with jade.. and has a good walking trail sorrounding the castle with the great Scottish map of Scotland is just a few metres away from the hotel. I would definitely come back again...

Excellent getaway from it all, with pool, sauna and spa amenities. Excellent service in the evening dinner and served delicious food. The interactive black rock dining experience is a must for all you meat lovers, a self meat cooking experience to savour. The room was a bit dated, but nicely fitted out and cozy! Nearby is the polish map of Scotland that you can visit at your leisure. A perfect getaway and I would love to return another time.

Great place to get away for a quiet weekend. Friendly and courteous staff make you feel right at home and good facilities. Dinner is above and beyond and you really are spoilt for choice that you could just stick a pin in the menu and not be disappointed. Location is secluded and recommend a walk around the grounds, especially the Polish Scotland Map which is a feat in itself. All in all, perfect place to relax and unwind. 👍

Lovely place to stay and relax. I like the old vintage look however my children like the more modern hotels. Views are brilliant. Price for the rooms are high for what you get. Breakfast was not all that. Staff are very friendly at the hotel. The hotel on a night looks lovely.

The hotel was nice and as expected. But the thing that stood out, and made me want to write a review was the food. I had dinner there in the evening and the food was incredible. I think it was the best meal of my life, and I have eaten in Michelin starred restaurants…

Wow! What can I say!

We got Married at Barony 02/02/2022 and had the most perfect day ❤️

The Eddleston suite is PHENOMENAL!!!

Everyone that works at Barony is truly an asset, so attentive and no ask is too much.

Mia had to step in last minute to assist with our wedding and I'm so glad she did, she made the room for both the ceremony and wedding breakfast look amazing! Mia definitely has a future in event planning!

Harris was a diamond making sure everyone always had a drink and no-one was left with an empty glass 🤣

Sue, the lovely ladies on Reception, Stephen, the ladies in the restaurant and the housekeeper (I'm sorry I didn't get all of your names) all of you are brilliant and it's clear to see you all enjoy your roles at Barony.

We were made to feel so special from the moment we arrived up until the moment we left and I'll be forever grateful to Barony for providing such a gorgeous backdrop for our perfect wedding!

Can't wait to visit again!

Anyone looking for a wedding venue I honestly cannot recommend Barony Castle highly enough!

Thank you all so much!

Mr & Mrs McKeeve ♥️ xx

We have just returned from a 3 night festive family break here. From the moment of my booking enquiry the staff were helpful friendly and knowledgeable especially Katie who helped book my stay. Hannah on the check in desk was an absolute delight and nothing was too much trouble. Mia in the bar area seemed to be around to serve us drinks, take photos, make as laugh and even host a game of bingo. The warmth and friendliness really made this place for me, even when working on Christmas Day nothing was too much trouble. The food was varied, plentiful and excellent value for money. The festive break itself was excellent value for money including, afternoon tea on arrival, a piper, mulled wine, Christmas Eve diner, breakfast each morning, Christmas dinner with soup and sandwiches at night, live entertainment, gifts from Santa for the kids, Boxing Day carvery as well as room credit to spend in the bar. We stayed in the Edison suite and it was absolutely amazing. We will be back but doubt I will be able to wait a whole year. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

What a beautiful place to stay. We went on their special deal, dinner bed and breakfast for 2 nights which was an absolute bargain! . We had the most lovely suite. Breakfast in bed. Food absolutley delicious too. My partner loved the swimming pool and sauna whilst I had a full massage, facial and my nails done by the lovely Jade. The staff couldn't do enough for us and were attentive, friendly and helpful. This also is the place you need to go and look at if you looking for a wedding venue. You can even get married in the woods! The wedding Planner Danielle showed us around the castle so we could see what this fabulous place had to offer! We will certainly be back. Highly recommended.

2 night stay for 2.Warm friendly welcome at check-in. Now it's at this point it's worth noting that this hotel is an older listed building, albeit with modern amenities. At the time of our visit it was going through a fair bit of restoration. (Some rooms included.)Fortunately we were on first floor, as lift was out of order. (no drama for us)We were accommodated at rear of hotel. The room was a double + single but was clean & warm & although the decor was a tad tired, we actually like this about old style hotels.We had D/B+B both days & must point out the food was way above our expectations, to the point of a truly pleasurable experience. ( lamb + steaks cooked to perfection & prices for food & drinks, were very reasonable)But our biggest plus of this visit were (all) the hotel staff! They are truly an asset to this hotel which made our stay such a lovely experience. Throughout our entire stay, each & every one of them couldn't have been more friendly & helpful.With lovely surroundings & walks, we have no hesitation recommending this hotel while using their great offers!

Cannot express how much myself and my boyfriend enjoyed our stay. Staff were amazing, food was great, the steak pie is to die for ! Beautiful decor, and the grounds ... Wow. Hopefully will be back when he decides to propose 😏 there's shops within driving distance as well which is great and a lovely little town centre. I had a facial by an amazingly lovely lady I'm gutted I can't remember her name ! The pool was great! Slippers provided and robes. My boyfriend arranged flowers, chocolate strawberries and champagne for the room which was such a lovely touch to an amazing visit. The room was gorgeous with a huge shower. You need to go!

Nice place and nice staffBut my biggest reason for only 3 stars is how very poor the beds are. Especially in the suits. Beautiful rooms with amazing bathrooms etc but the everyone complained on the wedding that we were at, that the beds were awful. £200 for a night of uncomfortable no sleep.The food and hotel is beautiful but just disappointed at the quality of the beds

We had room 123 which was listed as junior suite, would have expected bigger room, but overall clean, tidy and very comfortable. Huge bed and sooo comfy.Food. Steak on a stone is a must try. But ,they need to work out the ventilation as your clothes stink from the smoke. Breakfast was a good selection. As with all buffets temperatures always an issue. Starters of beetroot terrine was veryvtatsybas was the pigeon. We had the fish the second night, cod for me Haddock for my wife, too many bones, not enough due care and attention, advised would speak to fishmonger, however. A quick check before cooking and serving wouldn't go amiss. A few tweaks here and there would drag the restaurant to the 20th century. (A bit 70s in presentation) this is by no means a bad thing the cooking was good, and tasty. Earl Grey pannacotta. Wow. The shortbread, some of the best o have ever tasted, no joke.The Castle is amazing. All the bar staff waiting staff. Receptionists are a credit. We will be back...

Listed as a 3 star hotel.

We visited the Barony as a last minute trip taking advantage of the 2 nights dinner bed and breakfast deal. Our room was fantastic, the bed was huge and very comfortable and made it hard not to lounge in bed all day!The hotel itself is beautiful and situated very close to Peebles and Glentress. We left our bikes secured to the roof rack and it felt very safe to do so. The staff were extremely attentive, very polite and really friendly, with one member of staff suggesting a wonderful cycle route from Peebles to Innerleithen.Breakfast was great - hot buffet with food that was regularly replenished and piping hot - along with the options of cereals, fresh fruit & yoghurts. Our two evening meals at Barony Castle were exceptional - delicious food, presented beautifully at a very reasonable price point.The Great Polish Map of Scotland is definitely worth a visit and is an interesting historical addition to the hotel.We would definitely recommend Barony Castle and will be returning in the future.Special thanks to Operations Manager Steve Colquhoun for his help in making our trip so enjoyable.

My husband and I had a two night stay in August 2021 to celebrate my birthday. It was excellent. Friendly staff, great ambience in the lounge and bar area and comfortable furniture. The castle gardens are nice for a gentle stroll. The Polish Map of Scotland in the grounds is very interesting. The spa offers very relaxing treatments and the wee swimming pool is very inviting.

Had an amazing four days celebrating my wife’s birthday, visiting friends, and getting out for some lovely walks. The hotel and grounds are stunning, the venue is popular with locals and booking for the restaurant is recommended during busier periods. Plenty to do at the hotel and even more in the local area if you are a keen outdoors person. Edinburgh is 30 mins away and we were able to catch the end of the fringe as well. Too much to pack in in four days so we have guaranteed with the hotel that we will be back.

+ setting and grounds Apart from the Polish map place+ Staff friendly and hard working- dining room not much atmosphere ,food; more like pub food. BF dreadful Continental was cereal ,yogurt and juices from a carton-Room; Tired looking and very basic for the £126,- they dared to charge-It is not a castle or castle admosphere at all. Interior decoration is tired and tacky. No signs of it's past apart from an occasional photograph

Booked dinner for 7.30 and were only getting our dessert at 9.45 - we only had 2 course & the first was fish n chips! Would go back tho as everything else was great - think more staff training needed.

Fantastic 2 day stay at this hotel including 1 nights dinner 2 days bed and breakfast. We were upgraded to Lady Marie suite which was beautiful. Only dissapointment was the view from window, and a small recommendation would be to tighten legs on coffee tables and clean between the cushions on the sofa. When we sat down on the sofa the space between the cushions was full of crumbs and looked really dirty. We cannot fault the staff in any way as the were courteous and attentive. would stay again.👍

Just returned from a two night stop at the Barony. Please ignore the comments about squeaky floors! The building is 500 years old for heavens sake! I think I’d creak a bit at 500!!
Staff were excellent. Nothing was too much of a problem. Meals are well priced and not sparse on quantity either!
The grounds well kept, and a lovely path up the hill is good to walk off the massive breakfasts!
If there’s one downside, the room is a bit worn and in need of a makeover, but that’s what gives it its character.
All-in-all, highly recommended.

Wow... really don’t know where to start as we have been completely blown away with how welcoming and friendly the staff where here at barony.

My partner and me were coming here with our nearly 2 year old black Labrador Winston for our first trip with the dog and the reception we received from (forgive me if I am wrong) Shannon on the desk was incredible. She was so helpful checking us in and letting us know where we could have the dog in the hotel, and about the trails surrounding the grounds to take him a good walk. Not only helpful to us, but she was very pleased to see our boy and made sure he was given lots of attention too it was honestly brilliant and set us up to feel super at ease in the hotel with him.

The food was beautiful too, and the bar staff, especially Nathan. He was able to whip up a lovely cocktail and always seemed very approachable and helpful with a smile on his face. We were so happy that we could have Winston in the bar and the Murray lounge as well as the conservatory too and all the guests that were here at our visit were so welcoming to him being with us also which really made our weekend stress free and we could relax too.

As a dog owner i rate barony castle as 10/10 as I genuinely can’t see how my weekend could of been better. Our room was newly refurbished by looks of it and very clean, the food, the staff the grounds were all fanstastic. Will definitely be back. It’s really sad seeing some negative reviews of such a wonderful place.

Booked this hotel through myhotelbreak as a birthday surprise for my partner and we had a great stay. We were warmly greeted on arrival. Bar staff were great and informative about the hotels history, the pool was lovely and warm as was the sauna but only disappointment was the jacuzzi wasn’t working. Went for dinner and chose the restaurant menu over the bar menu and the fixed priced £25 per head three course was absolutely top notch, the chicken wrapped in bacon with the haggis Bon Bon and whisky sauce was to die for, the staff even put a birthday candle in my partners desert and the chef brought it out for her although he did say his singing wasn’t up to scratch...lol . The castle grounds and Polish made map of Scotland was really good and the grounds man Billy was very friendly and filled us in on the history of the castle and the plans for the future. I would definitely recommend the castle for a wee break away and we will definitely be coming back.

Wanted to stay longer! ☺ Within an hour of arriving I felt noticeably more relaxed for being there. We stayed 3 nights and were all really sorry to leave. The staff are all so helpful and pleasant, they absolutely made us welcome and it was the best hospitality I've seen in ages, a real sense of pride in their clearly high standards. The meal in the restaurant was the best Ive eaten in years, beautifully presented and obviously a brilliant chef. The rooms were very comfortable. The pool was lovely. ☹ Nothing. We all loved it, including the dog.

An enjoyable overnight stay ☺ We had our evening meal in the restaurant and it was excellent. The breakfast was also excellent, plenty of choice, well cooked, well presented. The staff were all very helpful, cheerful and good at their job. There was a wedding on at the hotel while we were there but it didn’t disturb us, our room was quiet. We also enjoyed a walk around the Polish Map of Scotland.

Felt thoroughly pampered in a wonderful relaxing setting close to the bustling town of Peebles. ☺ Staff are so friendly, helpful & professional. Food is excellent. Good selection of hot & cold breakfast items. Dinner delicious & beautifully presented. Enjoyed personal touches such as greeting card in room & special anniversary desert. ☹ Mattress was not very comfortable. Could feel all the springs but this did not spoil a lovely celebration weekend.
