We stayed over night to celebrate my daughters 8th birthday. The friendly staff definitely helped in making it that little bit more special for her. I was initially disappointed by having to pay extra for access to the pool, however having it to ourselves turned out to be an extra treat for our little family. We had a wonderful time.

We absolutely loved our 4 nights to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The staff are so friendly. Food is out of this world 🤤

Booked for 2 nights via a red letter day voucher for a premium stay. Our arrival was pleasant and socially distant. Unfortunately our room which was supposed to be a junior suite as detailed on the voucher, turned out to be, in my opinion, a lux double (room123). It was quite dark facing onto the rear and a unkempt plant/roof area. Heating was reluctant to work and WiFi non existent. On the other hand, the bed was large and comfortable as was the seating. The bathroom and shower were also good.Dinner and breakfast was good if a little awkward with current restrictions in place.When checking out we were told that we'd had a junior suite but on viewing the website it says there are only 2 junior suites which are named, and neither of them are called 123.Not impressed!!The hotel will be getting a letter for sure.

We stayed at the Barony Castle Hotel on our wedding night. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. The hotel was very comfortable and the food was delicious. But for us it was the staff who made it ! They went above and beyond. We will definitely stay there again.
07:32 26 Aug 20
Very well organised yesterday for Covid. Temperatures taken .. had to sign with contact details and times. Felt well looked after with excellent service.

Service was good, the food was excellent. The social distancing measures were sensibly implemented and as unobtrusive as they can be.The fabric and fixtures are a bit tired and frayed at the edges. But the rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff willing to help.

Brilliant weekend away for our 10th wedding anniversary. Back in the same place 10 years later... lovely hotel, amazing place, brilliant breakfast. Bus stop on the main road to take you into Edinburgh (if your thinking of booking) Staff very friendly and will do anything to make your stay even more perfect. A massive thanks to Shannon and Mia on reception and Jennette with breakfast. I was sad to check out this morning. Until next time.. thanks for everything 💗

Loved our overnight stay, room was lovely, we upgraded from our original room as I found it too small. It was absolutely no trouble moving to a deluxe room for a small fee. Receptionists were lovely and very helpful. All staff in hotel were anazing.Food was amazing especially the haggis scotch egg, this was delicious. After dinner had a few drinks in the lounge, which is warm and comfortable to sit and have a drink, they also do lovely bar meals if you dont fancy dining in the restaurant. Breakfast was a cooked, help yourself, with lovely fresh hot food, being replaced continually. All in all had a wonderful night and can thoroughly recommend Baroney Castle. It is also a dog friendly hotel if you dont want to leave your beloved pet at home, plenty of places to walk with your dog, weather permitting. 10/10 for this hotel and its staff.

Lovely friendly staff. Food was amazing in the restaurant. Room 123 was lovely. No view from window but beautiful room made up for it. I had a full body exfoliation and beauty therapist put me at ease very relaxing.
12:48 07 Mar 20
An amazing building in beautiful surroundings. The staff are the most wonderful people and can't do enough for you, (especially Shannon on the desk and Kayleigh the wedding events manager) whilst you are inhabiting their abode. 1 Squillion % Recommend. Best wedding Venue in Scotland also.

We arrived for our 5th time of staying here over the last few years. The room was lovely. All refurbished and looking v fresh. From the moment we arrived the staff made us so welcome. Shannon on reception could not have been more helpful, entertaining and genuinely just a great person- I want half of her bubbly energy!!! The food was lovely. Cocktails great. Our waitress Nikki in the evening was just a delight. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone. And all v reasonably priced. This is our favourite hotel in Peebles and I’m looking forward to coming back for our next visit already. Thanks for a lovely weekend. And most of all thank you to Shannon who really made our stay top notch!!
12:42 22 Feb 20
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.
12:00 22 Feb 20
Lovely setting with friendly and kind staff. Hearty breakfast setting us up for the day. Only quibbles swimming pool slightly cool.
08:28 22 Feb 20
Interesting grounds. Worth a visit.
17:43 21 Feb 20
Only stayed here for 1 night during a work trip. The double room was quite small but cosy. Everything was clean and tidy and the staff were very nice. The pool was free to use but we didn't have an opportunity to try it. There was a breakfast included in the price which was buffet style continental and cooked, bacon sausage etc. We had the cooked which was really good. I would definitely recommend.
16:29 20 Feb 20
Very friendly staff food was delicious rooms well clean, there's was nothing we could fault, we even had an afternoon tea which was delicious, next time we go back we will take our dog as the hotel seems very doggy friendly, the log burning fire was just amazing.
17:47 16 Feb 20
We are just home from a lovely weekend at Barony castle, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the rooms were well equipped with a very comfortable 4 poster bed, we ate at the restaurant for the set valentine's meal which was delicious, steak cooked to perfection. the spa facilities were an added extra. Kayleigh who checked us in was very friendly and made us feel very welcome at the hotel. we will definitely look forward to a future stay. thank you.

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.

FOUR STARSBooked 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.

09:37 05 Oct 19
Meant to leave a review much sooner - my partner and I stayed here in August and absolutely loved it. Such a peaceful setting surrounded by forest and a short drive into Peebles town centre. Lovely big room with nice view into courtyard. Beautiful grounds to explore including the Polish Map of Scotland. Had an amazing hot stone massage by the wonderful Jade who was so lovely. Actually ended up chatting to her for about an hour after my massage! Would 100% return to this hotel, it was just what we needed - very relaxing, very good staff and great food in the bar and restaurant. Thanks for a great weekend
13:43 21 Sep 19
The whole hotel is comfortable and clean. All the staff are friendly reception staff very helpful and efficient. Pool and gym area available. Staying as part of a coach party we had a limited choice menu in the dinning room but the food was excellent, chef and the kitchen team are to be congratulated on the standard and quality of the meals. Any request were catered for without any problems or fuss. Well done to all of the staff and thank you for making the stay a memorable experience.

Would highly recommend and will definitely be back for another spa visit soon �

Lovely place, very scenic with some good walks. We had steaks which you cook on the lava stone which was very nice and different. We also upgraded to the premium room which was no bigger but had a fridge with complementary drinks, coffee machine and dressing gowns. I do however think the rooms are ready for some modernisation, but this wouldn't stop us going back in the summer months for another visit.
20:55 17 Mar 18
We are just back from a 2 night stay, (our 4th time) with our friends. We had a fantastic stay, loved the leisure facilities, the food was lovely, especially the steak hot rock, the staff couldn’t have been more helpful and the bedrooms warm and cosy. Rooms slightly tired but was a great price for the comfort we had. Definitely be back again very soon !! �

Had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. The drive up to the castle is impressive, with the castle awIting us at the top. Staff Re excellent, so helpful all our needs and wants. Food was very good and wine list very affordable. We were caught in a snow blizzard and with certain road closures, and the Castles driveway covered in 2 feet of snow, we were forced to stat on!! No hardship, log fire, hot chocolate and very accommodating staff made our extra days, very comfortable. Both my husband and I are going back in Spring to enjoy the picturesque grounds that the Castle sits in. Special thanks to Steve, Samantha, and our waiter for a most enjoyable stay. You all made us feel very special.
18:40 05 Feb 18
Stayed for 1 night on speacial rate. Staff were very welcoming on arrival and room was great. Bath robes and slippers were supplied and a flat screen tv and fridge with free water and soft drinks included. A nice touch was the Nespresso coffee machine. Bathroom was spotless and toiletries supplied although bathroom decor was a little dated. Only slight negative were the very creaky floorboards. The bar was comfortable and busy and staff polite and helpful with a great selection of drinks at reasonable prices. Thompson’s restaurant for dinner was the jewel in the crown. Great choice of food beautifully presented and the fillet steak cooked on stone fantastic. Have paid an awful lot more for a lot less. Would most definitely go back even just for dinner.
21:31 04 Feb 18
Just back from overnight stay with partner. Picked hotel as we have been before & both thought the food was amazing. Room was fine, nice welcome from reception staff. Dinner however was a major disappointment. We'd both been looking forward to steaks. However now you get a steak experience where you cook your own steak at your table. Explained to server that I did not want this experience and was told that was the only option if I wanted a steak. Personally when I book a restaurant even in a hotel I want the experience of having my meal cooked for Me. Tainted the visit and would deter me from going back.
21:16 04 Feb 18
Stayed at Barony castle on Saturday for one might. Had a cream tea on arrival and later an evening meal both were excellent. Our room had beautiful view and was very spacious warm and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and service was great even though the hotel was very busy. Will definitely be back again.

Stayed here with the girls as a Christmas present to each other. The hotel is lovely and receptionist was very friendly and chatty on arrival, booked us in for our evening meal and very informative. The food in the restaurant was lovely, all three of us thouroughly enjoyed it. We decided to go for a drink in the hotel bar before heading back to our room. At about 10.30 my friend ordered two french martinis and a pina colada (relatively simple cocktails).We waited about 40 mins for them to come - at one point the bar staff had disappeared completely. When they finally arrived one of the martini glasses was almost half the size of the other! For £7.50 is a joke! We mentioned to the waiter who said dont worry they're just different glasses! We had a room on the first floor and found it very nice and clean. Two single beds and a double. The only gripe we had about the room was far too warm and no way of turning the heat down. I would return to the barony castle hotel in the future as these points haven't put us off, just miffed at the service in the bar area.

Had a lovely day here for our mums birthday! The staff in the restauraunt were all professional and lovely and looked after us well. The spa area was very clean and extremely relaxing! Would definitely go back however a note for the spa treatments...they should keep all the treatments the same as we ordered facial/head massage and I was only given a facial but didn't find out until after that the lady was supposed to do both. A bit of a shame as I should have had the same as everyone else but nothing I can do now. Nice place to relax for the day :)
18:17 19 Dec 17
Just had an impromptu overnight stay food, service, staff and environment were all great will definitely go back - great value!

My husband and I would not hesitate to recommend Barony Castle as a wedding venue. It really is a magical fairytale Scottish castle with a cosy and welcoming feel to it. We have stayed there countless times, so it was already special to us, but now even more so. All the staff fell over themselves to make sure that everything went smoothly on the day. One huge benefit was having the most fabulous dedicated wedding planner who we cannot thank enough. Her advice and knowledge of wedding planning and the fantastic relationships she has with local suppliers were just invaluable to us. It all looked breathtakingly beautiful, and all our guests were just hit with the wow factor that we were looking for. Most were so impressed that they said they would definitely be back to stay very soon, and we ourselves can’t wait to go back. It has all the ingredients for the perfect wedding: a choice of stunning function rooms, fabulous views, a stunning centrepiece LED light which looks amazing in the photos, twinkly lights in the conservatory and tasteful, neutral decor throughout, vast, beautiful grounds with a choice of locations for your outdoor photos, (we were treated to the view of a surprise visit from a local deer early the next morning!) truly delicious food and drink that we all really enjoyed, flexibility and choices in terms of the menus and friendly, professional staff that really do go the extra mile to make sure that every last detail is carried out to perfection, from last minute petal requests from the bridesmaid to personalised mocktails and the most beautiful touches to the rooms. Our guests were treated to the added bonus of a lovely pool, jacuzzi and sauna during their stay. The bridal suites are just stunning and I’ll never forget getting ready in my suite to the sound of bagpipes floating up from outside the castle entrance. We were lucky enough to spend the whole weekend here with our guests and enjoyed every second from the very well organised pre wedding meal on the evening before we got married to the very second that we left. And every single detail was completed to our absolute satisfaction. We wish we could do the whole thing again and wouldn’t change a thing, but since we can’t, we are simply looking forward to our next visit already. The new Mr & Mrs Wilmoth x

Beautiful hotel, with fantastic warm friendly staff making sure your stay is perfect. Both breakfast and dinner were cooked to perfection and really tasty with a well balanced selection. Thank you for making our wedding anniversary that extra special.

Had another great day at mecure barony spa peebles. Tony in the bar was excellent and so friendly, Gemma and Debbie were so friendly and very good at their jobs, we will miss Gemma when she goes on maternity leave, but wish her all the best, hopefully we will see you again soon x
15:22 12 Nov 17
Another excellent day at Barony, Tony in the bar was amazing, so thoughtful and caring, a credit to the hotel. Gemma and Debbie wonderful, warm, happy personalities. All staff friendly and couldn’t be more helpful. We will definitely return and I would highly recommend. Treatments amazing and food wonderful. Thank you for making us feel special.

Went for my husband’s birthday. Upgraded room was pretty average. Pool and facilities not available on arrival and only pool able to be used on Saturday. Very disappointed by manager’s response when required about a gesture of good will. Was told that as the services were complimentary we weren’t entitled to any compensation. Only looking for an acknowledgement and a free drink seeing as I had chosen the venue for the facilities and it didn’t come cheap. Staff in the bar and spa were lovely. The manager should take a leaf out of their book!
12:34 08 Nov 17
Just had a wonderful two night stay with my partner in the amazing Barony Castle...one of my favourite places to be. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and the room was lovely. The food was fantastic and the chef was only too happy to cater for my partner who is vegan and provided two lovely evening meals for him. If we could make one suggestion it would be that vegan options could be included as standard on the menus. Overall a wonderful stay during which we explored the beautiful grounds. We’ll definitely be back!

Spent the weekend here for our anniversary and my husband’s birthday. Not once were we offered a little token to say congratulations. Staff were friendly. We were booked in one of the privilege double rooms and you couldn’t swing a cat in it. The duvet was ripped, hair on the toilet, furniture was passed its best. The radiator wasn’t working so they brought us an electric heater on the first night and when I asked if it had been fixed on the second day it hadn’t been. A manager came to the room, couldn’t fix it so moved us to a standard room which was larger, warmer and furniture in better condition. The food in main restaurant was delicious as was the breakfast. Leisure facilities need upgrade but usable.
15:24 04 Nov 17
Had lunch there yesterday and it was lovely. 2 courses for £9.95 and the food was great!
10:11 01 Nov 17
Everything is great. Staff, food, facilities and surroundings. All perfect to relax and unwind.

We just popped in to see the map of Scotland and stayed for a bit of lunch. The two courses for a tenner deal they have is superb. Take the value for money and put it to the side. The quality of the food is great. I would say I can’t wait til I am passing again but I won’t be. I won’t be passing , I’ll be going in.
20:24 26 Oct 17
Here today for the Spa Day/Afternoon Tea - feel so relaxed - beautician was lovely and very very helpful, treatment was first class - afternoon tea was also lovely, would definitely recommend it - especially the showers in the pool area and the warm beds by the pool ��

I took my wife to Barony Castle hotel for our 24th wedding anniversary. The hotel itself was nice, rooms are a bit basic but they are okay. However, for the full duration of our stay the lift was not working properly, I reported this to staff within 30 minutes of our arrival and was told the engineer was on his way, it was still malfunctioning when we checked out two days later. On our last night my wife and I actually got stuck in the lift on our way up to our room, this was very distressing. I later found out that untrained staff had been just using the reset button each time the lift failed and none of them seemed to understand how dangerous that could be. At no point did any lift out of order signage go on the lift door's. We had been given a room on the third floor, which if the lift had been working would not have been an issue, however I have very serious osteoarthritis and I am weeks away from a hip replacement operation so walking up and down three floors of stairs was very painful. This whole episode made me question the running and management of the actual building and who if anyone was in charge of health and safety because to just keep resetting the lift and allowing guests to keep using a lift that was clearly in desperate need of a service from a trained engineer was a serious lapse of health and safety. All of the above is a crying shame because it spoilt what is otherwise a nice hotel with pleasant surroundings and very nice staff.
19:36 15 Oct 17
Staff are extremely helpful, very friendly and pleasant. We booked a night away, spa treatments with prosecco and afternoon tea,we ended up arriving 3 1/2 later than planned and all staff were great at rearranging our treatments and afternoon tea. Definitely recommend a stay here.
16:45 12 Oct 17
Last minute booking. Excellent value for money. Decided to eat in the bar and our food was very nice. All staff very pleasant.
09:28 09 Oct 17
My partner and I have just returned from a relaxing weekend at this hotel.No fault with this hotel at all. Lovely room. .very attentive staff..lovely food. Lovely surroundings. .ideal location to visit nearby tourist attractions. ..keep up the good work �

Fantastic welcome, stunning scenery and very homely. Definitely one to return too.
18:45 20 Sep 17
I upgraded to a premium room and wasn't particularly bowled over to be honest, we were on a road trip from Scotland to England and back again and had stayed in several places to compare. The 4 stars goes to the food which was absolutely delicious, the meal at night and the breakfast. Best food we had all week. We were able to use the spa facility, unless I missed something there was only 1 shower in the changing room. Swimming pool was fine, but the jacuzzi wasn't working. There was also a sauna. I would definitely return to the restaurant.
12:24 20 Sep 17
My daughter and I visited here yesterday with a voucher for a 25min spa option and afternoon tea,when we arrived we were greeted by the receptionist who explained everything to us very clearly, we were allowed to use all the facilities at our leisure until it was time for our afternoon tea and even afterwards. Would definitely recommend Barony Castle,and would like to wish Gemma all the very best in the forth coming of her baby in February.
07:47 07 Sep 17
Nice hotel. Food was good and the grounds are lovely.
11:30 31 Aug 17
We stayed here for our honeymoon! A lovely place with breath taking views I'd highly recommend this to anyone. Lovely staff very professional. My only downside to our stay was our room wasn't cleaned yesterday. And when going down for breakfast it wasn't very hot. Although the room service for breakfast was brilliant :-) we will be returning. Many thanks.Peter and Zara hardy

We were here for a wedding.... couldn't fault the venue. The function suite bar didn't make cocktails so we went to the main bar, you would think we'd asked the bar man to pull his teeth out one by one, or to walk over hot coals! What happened to good old customer service?? It's not like we weren't paying a good price for them. Usually I would take umbridge and complain about poor customer service but after having stepped back to observe, it was evident that the barman was under pressure and perhaps feeling undervalued as a member of staff. From what I could see, and I was there for a while, he has real talent when it comes to managing the bar. I saw him make liqueur coffees, cappuccinos & regular drinks, all whilst taking bar snack orders and keeping the bar stocked. His pièce de résistance however was the cocktails, he made the best French martini I have ever seen or had the pleasure to drink. My friend's strawberry daiquiri was equally delicious as it was a work of art. So, Dear Mercure Barony Castle Hotel, I have marked you down a star, not for the barman's attitude but for failing him. Why is this man less than happy at his job?? Is he unsupported? Are his skills unnoted? I would like you to let him know that I noticed how fantastic he was at his job and that even though he was grumpy he still put his heart and soul into every drink. The care and attention to detail was exemplary. In this day and age with high staff turnover and job dissatisfaction, employers should recognise and nurture individuals who have talent, who unfailingly produce high standards even on an off day. Of course I might have gotten it completely wrong but even still it's the best damn cocktail I've ever tasted!! 👍🏼

This lovely historic hotel has a number of dog friendly bedrooms. The hotel is set in beautiful countryside and is just a short drive from the pretty town of Peebles. Dogs are welcome in the hotel's conservatory and also the Murray Lounge. The hotel's special '2 courses for £9.95' weekday lunchtime menu is a definite hit - generous portions and great value. The staff were very helpful and friendly - I would definitely recommend a visit to the Barony Castle Hotel for a stay or even just for a meal and a drink.
09:06 25 Jul 17
Was here for itison deal on Sunday night had a great time only down was we were above kitchen so room was really hot but definitely be back great staff and food was delicious spa was great
16:51 21 Jul 17
Had a lovely night stay at Barony Castle which I purchased from 5pm which was great value. The staff were warm and welcoming and in our time of need when our car needed a jump start a maintenance guy was happy to help.
10:44 17 Jul 17
My Mum and I booked a spa day and afternoon tea. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The only gripe we had was the size of the bathrobes.....perhaps some more generously sized ones might be a good idea 😁
20:53 11 Jul 17
Stayed here for my birthday just for one night and had the most amazing relaxed time ever! Staff were so friendly, the place was so clean and the food was unbelievable! Drinks were a good price as well. Will 100% be back.
15:21 11 Jul 17
Food amazing, staff fantastic. Thank you Barony Castle for making our ten year wedding anniversary special 🍾 We will be back!
08:48 11 Jul 17
Stayed here at the weekend, 15 of us were here for a hen weekend. All of us had a treatment which we all enjoyed very much and the 2 ladies doing the treatments were lovely. We had afternoon tea and dinner and could not fault anything, the staff made us all feel very welcome. The weather was great which meant we could sit outside and enjoy the surroundings. Would highly recommend �
15:06 08 Jul 17
Stayed last night. Everything was amazing. The food was absolutely delicious. Will definitely be back �
15:35 06 Jul 17
Mum and I are just back from a nights stay at the wonderful Barony Castle. We loved our stay in every way! The food was amazing and fantastic portion size with a wide range of choice the staff (all the staff!!) Where very friendly and welcoming. The spa was really relaxing, therapists where very accommodating and the treatments where 1st class (I am a therapist myself �) the leisure facilities where clean and tidy. The grounds that the castle sits on are beautiful. Would highly recommend this place and will definitely be back. Many thanks Mrs Robertson.

Nous avons aimé que ce soit un château. L'extérieur était splendide. Loin de toute autre possibilité de manger donc obligé de manger à l'hôtel. Chambre confortable mais les corridors sont très abîmés et franchement pas propres. La douche était défectueuse ainsi que le téléphone... Pour avoir utilisé plusieurs autres Mercure, le Barony est probablement au bas de la liste.
18:58 02 Jul 17
Booked in for a Spa day with the girls....had a fabulous day....I opted for a massage including head and foot done by Debbie...she was professional and very thorough best massage I've had! Left feeling light as a feather.We were served high tea with Prosecco which was very tasty and so much food for one person (we took our cakes home �) followed by time in the pool and sauna to work off the carbs. All at a great price!
13:42 02 Jul 17
Had an amazing stay , contacted the hotel previous to my stay as was planning on proposing to my girlfirend and she said YES , the hotel gave me ideas on where to ask the question fufilled all my needs and the food and room where superb definitely recommend this hotel to anyone , Thanks to the staff at Barony Castle , also recommend the dean view suite was immaculate.
08:46 02 Jul 17
Been to barony a few times and loved every minute of it . It's good to go and relax.

20:04 28 Jun 17
Just home from here today. I used itison to get the overnight stay with cocktails �canopies and breakfast £59. Did I mention you get full use of the leisure facilities? It is real value for money. Arrived at the front desk to check in got upgraded to a better room with jacuzzi. (Room 123)The staff were very friendly and professional. Breakfast was vast lots of choice to keep everyone happy � Overall I would definitely go back again maybe for a little longer
14:21 21 Jun 17

Stayed here in the last week with friends and family for our wedding , from arrival staff were very helpful, eddelston suit was just perfect and great size for my bridesmaids and myself to get ready and then on our wedding night we had the dean view suit which is just amazing, stunning room! Ashley was amazing, very helpful and kind and was easy to get a hold of and could reach her by phone or email she made our wedding planning so much easier nothing was a bother ! On our wedding day everything went just perfect everyone of our guest had a great time, food was amazing , grounds are stunning and staff all helpful! Especially Jeanette who was on hand to ensure everything went as smoothly as possible and eager to ensure we had a perfect day ! Really can't thank you all enough for a great experience we sure will be back soon! Thank you ! X
14:38 18 Jun 17
Had a 5pm deal for here. After reading some reviews I was terrified what I was going to find. Pleasantly surprised! Yes some areas are in need of a refurb, but my understanding this is underway. The pool was cold and could do with more seats. The restaurant however deserved 5 stars. I had the steak which you cook yourself on lava rock. Easily the best steak I have ever had. Enjoyed a lovely meal with cocktails. Will be back (just for the steak alone!).
12:46 17 Jun 17
Staff were very professional and friendly. Our room was a little tired and the Hotel itself could do with refurbishment. However, the food in the restaurant was first class as was the service. Overall a pleasant enough Hotel in a lovely location.

Just back from a overnight stay. me & my wife really enjoyed ourselves. The hotel is really nice. We could see it's getting a makeover but this didn't matter to us.

Came here with my friend for her 21st birthday present for facials, prossecco Afternoon tea and and use of the spa facilities. We had a lovely afternoon the treatment and staff were great and the afternoon tea was lush but unfortunately we were massively let down by the pool area. The pool was freezing as well as the Jacuzzi, one of the jet things at the end of the pool was broken the sauna was look warm and then just as we were starting to relax on the heated loungers we were interrupted by lots of children coming in to do a swim class. And ended up freezing from them all jumping in the pool soaking us on the loungers. This is not the children's fault at all but this would have been nice to be told that there was going to be a children's swim class happening as we were there to relax. Don't think we would come back unless the pool area was sorted.

There was a cycling time trial going on with the Edinburgh cycling club and had a talk with some of the staff and lady cyclists great people keep up the hard work.

14:23 18 Apr 17
Rooms nice enough. The tv went off for over 24 hours which was no good relaxing in ya room!No entertainment at the hotel. No games, pool table, so very limited activities. Lovely surrounding area and the grounds are beautiful for a stroll. Food nice. Can't say I would come back. A shame there isn't anywhere local to have a walk to either. Not close enough.
08:58 17 Apr 17
Fantastic Spa day was had by myself and my friend. As soon as we walked in, we were warmly welcomed by the reception staff. Gillian the treatment lady was utterly amazing, and chatted away. Spa facilities were reasonable. Afternoon tea was amazing! Will definitely be back. Can't recommend this place high enough. Thanks for an amazing day guys x

My husband and I had a lovely spa day here, relaxing in the pool and sauna, a treatment each and a delicious prosecco afternoon tea. Was a last minute booking after another hotel let us down, would definitely recommend it, the beauty therapists and rest of the staff were so friendly. The Great Polish Map of Scotland in the grounds is worth taking a 5 minute walk to see too. Hope to be back soon!
13:48 09 Apr 17
Fantastic night away sun shined all day and sat out in courtyard relaxing with few drinks. Food was delicious lunch, diner and breakfast will be back soon
13:05 04 Apr 17
Great hotel. Situated beautifully in a gorgeous part of Scotland. The staff are really nice, attentive without being overbearing. The rooms are nice. The food, beautiful. Last night we had 3 wonderful courses, my complaint, and this is a 1st world complaint, I was given way too many Mussells. What a complaint. Lovely pool with Sauna, you couldn't ask for more. Sitting at the Gazebo is wonderful. Love the place

10:40 14 Mar 17
Beautiful hotel with friendly staff, ideally suited to doggie people and their dogs.only fault I found was a rather limited menu if you had to eat from it for more than two nights.

Stayed here with friends for the night whilst attending Mighty Deerstalker in Eddleston. Apprehensive with comments made on Trip Advisor but I had a pleasant stay. Bit of a rabbit warren trying to find my room but it was clean and tidy and the shower worked (which is what you need after a muddy trail run). Would definitely stay here again.
15:23 05 Mar 17

Don't listen to the negative reviews on this place! We were a bit worried when I booked this as a birthday treat for my mum but I'm so glad we did now! The service was exceptional from reception to the waiting staff! The room was clean, a wee bit small wear and tear but for an old building to be expected. They are slowly renovating the floors from the ground up and you can see an impressive difference with the downstairs, bar area, restaurant and wedding venue, will be beautiful when all finished. The food was really outstanding and we throughly enjoyed out evening meal and breakfast! The spa was lovely, pool a bit cold but once in was OK. Jacuzzi could be separate from pool and a bit warmer and this place would be spot on. Nice and quiet and loved the heated loungers which nearly sent us to sleep! Had a walk round the grounds and was lovely. Such a lovely peaceful setting and makes a lovely scene for a wedding! The history of the castle at reception is interesting reading and would be nice if there was one in each room as I would have liked to have read more as it was all really fascinating! Overall an amazing stay and will defo be back! Pat on the back to all your staff and in particular the chef!

We go here quite regularly for a family getaway. Our little boy always has a great time, loves the pool and the staff are so nice to him. The healthy choices menu is great if you're watching what you eat, the grounds are beautiful and Peebles is a great wee town to visit.
13:58 11 Feb 17
Great day yesterday at the spa with my daughter, bought with ITISON voucher. Thought it was a great deal. Staff were super and afternoon tea was lovely. I could have stayed all day. I think the next time I would do overnight accommodation as well - I was so relaxed I didn't want to drive home!

Took the upgrade. Wasn't really worth it. Room itself was nice enough but we were promised wifi in all rooms and we couldn't get a signal. Dinner was acceptable but my sole was completely smothered in butter and overpowered everything on my plate.
13:39 06 Feb 17
Staff very polite nothing too much trouble , would definatley stay there again , spa facilities very clean and tidy .
11:53 31 Jan 17
Had a spa day with afternoon tea. Facilities werent that great. One shower in changing room, a hair dryer and no socket to plug in straighteners :( Pool area small just a few chairs, no steam room just the sauna and jacuzzi which wasn't that warm. 2 heat relaxer loungers which were great. Afternoon tea was lovely, got one each which was nice. Asked for coffee and got to choose which kind, opted for latte. Staff were pleasant.Lady doing spa treatment (gillian) very nice and friendly. Bit disappointed in treatment as said head to toe massage so thought it was exactly that but it was a scalp massage and lower leg and foot massage. All in all it was ok.

Stayed in the Tweedale Suite.. had a bottle of fizz chilling in the room waiting on our arrival, enjoyed that in the huge round tub, got ready for dinner which incidentally was excellent, I had the fillet steak and Johanna had the duck, both of which were cooked perfectly... In the morning we had a loveley stroll round the grounds after a very tasty breakfast. All in, I can heartily recommend the Tweeedale Suite at the Barony Castle for a relaxing night away!
21:38 16 Jan 17
I have stayed here a few times I love it very friendly and helpful staff room very clean food was excellent you should stay.
19:56 15 Jan 17
This was the first time I have stayed at Barony Castle having previously visited for lunch. Having read some of the reviews I was slightly concerned!! However have had the most pleasant stay. On arrival we were met by a very friendly & pleasant receptionist. Once checked in we went up to our room ... which was clean & warm. The rooms do look at little tired, however it is clear that the refurbishment of the hotel is starting to take place. We went down for dinner which was absolutely lovely (compliments to the Chef) & waiting staff were very pleasant & attentive.On Sunday we were booked into the Spa, my treatments were completed by Debbie who was amazing 5*'s!! I do agree the pool area is not quite the area to relax due to families using it. However the warm relaxation beds if moved to another room within the leasure facilities would be perfect. The relaxation room itself in the Spa area was tranquil, with complimentary drinks.People do have to remember this is a 3* hotel, with money & time spent on it could easily be a 4*, beautiful location & very attractive visually.Happily return for another visit, I have given the hotel 4*'s due to the improvements which need completed on the Bedrooms & the pool area is a family area & not a Spa facility. This did not detract from our stay ...
21:40 13 Jan 17
Just back from an overnight here. We loved our stay. Food was excellent, staff very friendly and helpful....took time to chat with us and the girl on reception was able to tell us about the walks round the hotel. The pool and sauna were lovely and our room was very comfortable. Great value and will definitely go back.
13:40 04 Jan 17
Great last minute booking. Staff very friendly and helpful. Facilities very clean and well maintained.Only wee grumble...... no non-alcholic beer stocked, surely this is possible even just one, large hotel and company.
20:48 31 Dec 16

I bought an Itison voucher for a friend and I to have a spa day, treatment and prosecco afternoon tea (in December 2016). I have to say that I am rather surprised at the other reviews as the whole day was brilliant and even the service couldn't be faulted. The afternoon tea was freshly made and delicious. We had a lovely walk round the grounds afterwards. What an amazing place - we will definitely be back.

We recently had our wedding at Barony, have to say after an initial hiccup early on in the preparations we did end up having the most fantastic wedding. Ashley's organisation and helpfulness are second to none. I had a spa treatment in the room night before the wedding and the lady who took care of me was amazing.. The meal we had on the day was amazing! I would definetly recommend Barony to people looking for a wedding venue. The whole day was taken care of and run smoothly from start to finish. �

My wife and I spent the weekend here in February. I must admit I was totally blown away with the place. The grounds are STUNNING hotel is immaculate inside and out the food is beautiful and the staff are so welcoming and helpful. Will definitely be returning many many more times.
11:26 13 Aug 16
We got married here on 4th June. We spent the whole weekend at the hotel with our guests. Ashley and the team were very helpful throughout the planning process and running of the day. The hotel arranged a private area of us to have dinner the evening before the wedding. On the day itself the staff were very helpful and ensured the smooth running of the day. They kept the whole day running on time allowing us to relax and enjoy our special day. Our guests commented on the beautiful venue, great food, helpful staff and lovely rooms. We were lucky to have such beautiful weather which meant our guests were able to relax in the beautiful grounds. Our day was perfect and we can't thank the hotel staff enough for everything they did.

My husband and I stayed here for one night on 29th May. We booked DBB and really enjoyed our stay. The food was lovely and staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was busy that night (and there was a wedding on) but we did not have to wait long for our food. Plenty of choice for breakfast too. The hotel is in a beautiful location which is why we chose it for a break. A lovely hotel and would definitely stay here again.

Just back today from 2 nights at Barony Castle (3rd-5th April 2016). We had a great time. We were bed & breakfast and the hotel did not disappoint. It's a lovely place with friendly staff and the food was very good, in particular the spaghetti carbonara in the bar! The cocktails were slightly more expensive but that's to be expected in a hotel, they were very well made, tasted great! The room was nice, very clean and housekeeping staff were really friendly and helpful. Only one thing about the room, the shower could have had more pressure, it was really weak. Used the pool twice, there's not much to it and no view, but the hot tile beds are really good, so relaxing!Reception staff were kind and helpful, bar staff were chatty and attentive. The best member of staff though had to be Gillian from the Spa! The facial and massage I had were both amazing! Very professional and lovely person, would definitely recommend her treatments to anyone who stays.Overall this was a well priced, great place to stay, I would recommend it to others and I will definitely return sometime soon.

Stayed here last Friday night and had an amazing night, probably 1 of the best steaks I've had and the complimentary haggis balls for burns night were brilliant, Mathew the bar man ensured that every cocktail we had was amazing and think you should give him a pay rise just for his cocktail making abilities, will definitely be back only next time we'll bring a few friends
22:14 25 Jan 16
Was at a 30th and stayed the night I loved every minute of it and can't wait to go back xx

We had an amazing wedding day at Barony Castle and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a venue for their big day. The driveway up to the castle is stunning and definitely has the wow factor! The recently refurbished function suites are beautiful and were perfect for our ceremony and reception. The wedding breakfast was excellent and of a very high standard and the grounds of the hotel provided the perfect location for our wedding photos. The wedding coordinator Sarah-Jane was very professional and did an excellent job in helping us organise our special day. All the staff were very kind and helpful. The rooms were clean and very comfortable and the food at breakfast was again excellent! Both us and our wedding guests had a great day and we can honestly say we wouldn't have changed a thing. A very big thank you to all the team!Rachael and Jeff

Firstly I want to thank Sarah-Jane & Ashley for helping us plan our big day & making it so fantastic. I fell in love with Barony Castle as soon as I saw it and we had looked at so many other venues in the area, we had narrowed it down to two & you made the choice so much easier for us once we had spoken to you. The day itself was absolutely amazing & I believe that it was given that extra special sparkle thanks to all of the fantastic staff at Barony. As I had mentioned to Sarah-Jane, Shauna was absolutely brilliant, all of our guests who came in to contact with her all said how friendly, helpful and special she was. She helped me massively on the Friday when I was overwhelmed & very stressed and her small actions made a big difference. She was always happy to help. I have been so impressed at how many of our guests actually commended staff at the hotel by name and some names came up regularly from many people, so many people said both Felix & Johnny were absolutely brilliant. Also the guy who was doing our announcements (I can't remember his name sorry) was fabulous too. Every member of staff that we spoke to, from cleaners to bar & waiting staff, were wonderful, polite & helpful. Sarah-Jane, you have been brilliant especially on the day & even more so that you're right in the middle of your pregnancy!!! The whole castle looked stunning and our rooms were beautiful! I would highly recommend Barony Castle to anyone for either a wedding or just for a stay. We have had so many compliments on every aspect of the wedding. One of my main complaints about weddings I have been to in the past has been the food & I was the proudest bride ever when our meals arrived!! We didn't think the quality of the food we had at the menu tasting could've been any better but your amazing kitchen managed to produce the most delicious food on the day as if each meal had been the only meal being made that day!Pleasing both Coeliacs & Vegans with something they weren't bored of being forced to eat due to lack of option is not an easy task but again your kitchen succeeded! All in all we had the most amazing day and believe that it wouldn't have been better any where other than Barony THANK YOU!!! Lots of Love Jennifer & Francis Vance

A lovely imposing building in a beautifully quiet location. Friendly staff, and good-sized rooms at a very reasonable price.
18:41 27 Apr 15
Had an absolutely smashing long weekend away. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and was delighted to find my room had been upgraded to a privilege room. The room it’s self was very clean and tidy with a comfy bed and powerful and hot shower, although the floor boards do tend to creek a bit. The food at the bar and in the blue dug restaurant was fantastic. How anyone can complain about the cooked breakfast is beyond me. Basically this was a fantastic value for money hotel with great facilities including the spa and gym, with stunning grounds and amazing views. Definitely will be back for another stay.

We stayed here the night before meeting the wedding coordinator to see about having our wedding here. The food was average and the service wasn't consistent, some tables were offered fresh bread and water before taking there order but we weren't. There was a golden wedding anniversary on and the main focus seemed to be on that, during our meal there were staff walking in and out the restaurant with plates and trays of hot food for the function, other guests shouldn't be aware that there is another event on in my opinion and it killed the atmosphere in the restaurant. The coordinator also turned up 45 min late so it didn't really set a good impression to be honest.
13:48 13 Sep 14
Fantastic place. Went for a couple of days away. From the 10th of September -12th. Was a very relaxing and friendly place. We will Definetly be returning ar some point In the future.

The blue dug restaurant has lovely food. Breakfast was great, plenty to choose from. Beds comfortable but the place could do with a lick of paint. Very tired looking. The games room is just screaming out for a real fire to be fitted.

This couldn't have been a better vacation! I absolutely loved everything. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. The grounds are beautiful! Gavin and Jorge aka "George" were just absolutely amazing! The food was so wonderful...Probably my favorite part of the entire trip. Kelly from housekeeping helped us soo much. And Lisa from the spa gave us the exact relaxation that we needed. Wonderful place to stay! I hope to come back some day with my family. I'm going to miss the wonderful Scottish breakfast. Thank you staff of the Barony!!!
