The hotel is beautiful and lovely food and drinks and now I do have a complaint the lady manager this evening was extremely rude to her staff shouting at them to collect glasses in front of customers and also was extremely rude to my coach party because our sitting arrangements had changed at dinner I am Sorry communicate with your staff and we was made to fell very disappointed and uncomfortable 😣. I will say there was a lovely guy at the bar who does amazing cocktails 🍹 fantastic and very friendly . The rooms are lovely very hard mattresses and very nosy at night . I will be in touch with the manager about tonight’s service .

We stopped by the Barony today as my wife had a Spa appointment and we had lunch beforehand.My wife was delighted with the massage and facial and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.The food though was a bit of a disappointment. My sourdough bread was solid and a bit stale, though the soup was good.We had our wedding reception here 31 years ago and we've been frequent visitors since.The service is always good, but this is the first time I've not found the food first class.Maybe next time.

Room was nice and a good standard of cleanliness, bathroom was extremely hot even though radiator was off, couldn’t open bedroom window but on the whole room ticked all the boxes.After dropping cases in our room we headed to the bar area for drinks, a nice pleasant waiter took our order, this was brought to our table by an extremely rude bar staff member who we think is called Brad ! He questioned the fact we asked for black pepper in our Hendrix gin with cucumber drinks telling us he’d never heard of it !! as customers all he needed to do was bring the pepper mill ! But he proceeded to talk down to us !We were table number one for dinner and once we were seated we realised our table was like a see saw ! The lovely girl who brought our starters said she would speak to someone to come and see it, on clearing the table she asked if her manager had came to see us but nobody at any point during the night came to check it so we had a table going from side to side all night.The following morning we had a lovely breakfast then we sat in the bar area till our taxi came at 12:30 … we had been there since 9:30 and checked out around 11:10 but we’re approached as we stood up to leave at 12:30 by a woman ( management we think ) claiming we hadn’t payed a bill for drinks and food the previous day, now she didn’t do this discreetly but chose to shout across the room with others watching us ! This bill had been payed and we could tell her exactly how much we had payed!!We found the majority of the staff very nice but the two I mentioned above would make me think twice about returning to barony castle.

Thoroughly enjoyed my first time at an events evening. Booked accommodation too. Dinner was delicious. Nice mix of company once found our table. Rooms clean and comfortable as was the bed. I'm not usually one for a grill led or fried up breakfast but treated myself during my stay - very tasty and fulfilling. The Scottish map in the grounds of Castle is lovely to visit. Highly recommended.

The buffet breakfast was really quite tasty. Could I suggest a better coffee machine and proper orange juice would make a huge difference.Staff need to be more attentive as I was left waiting at an unattended bar on more than one occasion.The first days breakfast was the same with quite a long wait to be seated. The second day, for the buffet, the sign saying "wait to be seated" was removed. A bit confusing 😕

We booked the Addison Suite which was lovely but very cold as there was no heating on.Twice I have been here and wanted to visit the Polish Map of Scotland but there is no handrail down the steps to the bridge. Surely it would be the simplest thing to fix a rail to the wall for the sake of Health and Safety. Very disappointed.

Second overnight stay here but not as impressed this time. Rooms were comfortable and clean and maid service was excellent but restaurant service was very slow. Waited 45minutes for our dinner to arrive after ordering. Dessert was very slow too. Food for dinner was very good but breakfast not so good.

Our room was small in an attic. Clean with everything we needed. However because of the ceiling shape my bed was under the eves and I must have banged my head half a dozen times during my 2 night stay. Especially during the night if I needed to get up. Not the best.

I enjoyed my stay. Hotel rooms nice and well maintained. Staff lovely . Added bonus of leisure centre too and good menu choices. Food was a bit disappointing. Breakfast bland and anything cooked to order had supplements.brownie was so stale for £8.50, orange juice diluted at breakfast and despite menu saying that vegetarian soup was available on request they didn’t have any. Food needs improved but would return as nice atmosphere

I was with a friend for lunch,really friendly staff greeted us and helped us to our table, the menu was very limited as it was lunch time, I would assume there will be more choice on the dinner menu.
The food was well cooked and very tasty I really enjoyed my lunch, and the service.

Bit of a mixed bag. Large but very dated suite accommodation, exceptionally uncomfortable bed. Chipped furniture and peeling wallpaper. Not what was expected for what was paid. There were wedding receptions on when we were there but any noise created did not reach our suitr which was pitch black and silent overnight.Lovely staff at reception and in the restaurant. Evening a la carte dining very good and service efficient. Buffet breakfast, while not the worst we have ever experienced, is not anywhere near as good in context of the evening offerings. Castle grounds are extensive and there are some well kept paths with good views on which to take a nice walk. Barony Castle's location puts it within easy reach of Traquair House and Abbotsford,two charming places to visit.

Booked spa day for myself and my daughter but have had better. The treatments were fabulous and the staff were so nice and friendly. Afternoon tea was delish.We were both quite disappointed in the pool area. The pool showers were broken and the pool are quite dated but our biggest disappointment was the lack of places to relax. Only 2 loungers in the pool area and one chair. Nowhere else to lounge or sit and there was at least 16 people in the area. There was a tiny sitting room but away from the pool area. This all resulted in having to stay in the pool or sit on the tiled floor at the side.

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.

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. 👍

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. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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.

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.👍

Found the staff very helpful and friendly making this a very enjoyable experience.

High standard food, comfortable and clean accommodation (we had the dog friendly standard room). Superiours all booked.

lovely grounds to wander about with the bonus of the map of Scotland to view.

Will definitely return and highly recommend, definitely value for money. enjoy.....

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 💗

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.

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.
