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!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Barony Castle has a unique setting, is very discreet, excellent meals, efficient and professional spa. If you're looking for a total peaceful and relaxed break, Monday to Thursday is the perfect time. Ample parking, great walks and the historic map of Scotland better known as the Polish Map of Scotland. PS: I always book direct for the best rates😀

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.

Me and my partner have stayed here many times and each time we stay our time at Barony Castle gets better and better.The staff are always so welcoming, friendly and nice. The rooms are beautiful and so comfy. The breakfast is amazing and very tasty, I would recommend having your breakfast sent to your room. The spa, gym and lesuire facilities are equally a lovely addition to a lovely hotel.We certainly will be taking a trip back again soon.

The hotel is very nice. Rooms are a bit hit and miss, as some are refurbished and some a bit dated, but everything works, and all amenities are provided. Reception staff are very polite and accomodating. The pool, sauna and gym are great to unwind after a long day, and well kept. Food in the restaurant is exceptionally good and locally sourced, however service can be hit and miss depending on the server. The grounds are lovely and provide extensive options for nice walks if you want. To note, after my first stay, this hotel got 2 stars, since then I've stayed here at least 10 times, and I have seen improvement in service and standards. I would definitely revisit, and can recommend. The only thing keeping it from 5* is some of the rooms being dated, and the hit and miss service at the restaurant.

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.

Really good place to stay in the Scottish borders, plenty of walks to go off on or just stumble about the grounds, set well away from the road so quiet is key.Great place sky permitting for dark sky star spotting.Excellent refurbished 3d map of Scotland built by our eastern European friends the polish.Recommend a stay here, food really good and a nice selection of single malts.

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

Their staff are their no1 attribute.we were there as wedding guests for a family wedding in July. every member of staff were so friendly & helpful & made so much effort to ensure people relaxed and enjoyed the day. We stayed 2 nights ; we didnt book the fancy rooms, so were in the older sector up several flights of stairs, a magical mystery tour at times😊...and we may have regretted having no aircon ( it was that crazy hot humid weekend !) but our bedroom was clean, had tea/coffee facilities, comfy bed & powerful shower. Theyre the things you need; the calibre of their staff & their commitment to great customer service are the things you hope for..they delivered. A lovely event made memorable by hard working & caring people.

Good value and service. We requested a room on the top floor and the staff were very accomodating. Our room was a good size, very clean and quiet. The breakfast was good especially the continental! The cooked breakfast was nice although the mushrooms lacked taste and I wasn't keen on the scrambled but other than that it was fine. The only issue we had is that the bath is very slippery when you have a shower, maybe bath mats would be a good idea. All in all it was fantastic, great facilities, pub food was good, drinks are a bit pricey but the grounds are beautiful and the service good so definitely worth a visit.

If going here be aware that google maps trys to take you in the delivery entrance, simply go straight on at the large black gates. It has ample parking even when hotel is busy, place is clean, we got a basic room which had a mini fridge, bathrobes and slippers, ironing board etc, which the website says these rooms don't have, the walls are thick so rooms are warm and could do with better air conditioning, the interior decor could do with an update but not an issue, bar prices average at £4.50 for a bottle of cider, the bar food was plentiful and well priced.The grounds are well kept and worth a walk around, the only disappointment being the polish map which rather than looking like rocks (as it should) it looked like it was covered and smoothed over with concrete, hence 4 stars! All staff were friendly and attentive, my wife uses the spa for a hot stone massage, would advise to book as far in advance as possible as availability is limited, we booked 3days ahead and only got an early morning appointment.The £89 we paid for a basic room also came with £50 room credit.For: spa, manicured grounds, friendly staff, quiet surroundings.Against: air conditioning, polish map, creaky floor boards in rooms.

Stayed here Easter weekend with our lil pup and we absolutely loved it! The grounds are gorgeous and well manicured. There are plenty of trails for walking and a great big field perfect for a game of fetch. Reception was kind enough to put us by a fire door and said we were welcome to let our pup in and out as long as we shut it when we were done. There is even a bar section where we could have her with us for breakfast. Absolutely lovely accommodations and completely doggie friendly. Highly recommend for the beautiful setting and the customer service!

Just spent the weekend with my partner at Barony Castle Hotel, and we will definitely be back. We stayed in a Classic Double Room, which was more than adequate. Bed and pillows were extremely comfy, no noise from adjoining rooms or externally. Resulted in us having fantastic sleeps.The facilities in the room were great too..The first night we received a free glass of wine, and canapés, and had dinner in the hotels 1536 restaurant. The food was excellent, service was wonderful. Very impressive. We retired through to the Blue Dug Bar after, enjoying a few drinks whilst relaxing in the spacious lounge. Second night we had dinner in the Blue Dug, and honestly can’t speak highly enough of the food. The bruschetta was possibly the tastiest thing I’ve ever ate. Added to this was breakfast each morning in the 1536 restaurant. Great selection, and plentiful supply of the various food types on offer.In regards to the staff, we have to pay huge compliments to each of them. Throughout our stay, whether it be the reception, bar and restaurant, or housekeeping crew, we were met by friendly, helpful, polite and courteous staff. A real credit to the hotel. A lot of judgements and opinions are formed on first impressions(rightly or wrongly), and for us they were all very positive. The hotel is also situated in vast grounds, and even though there’d been an overnight snowfall, we ventured out for a walk. Definitely recommended, and worth a wander. If you can take a walk over the bridge to the Polish Map of Scotland, and the woodland walk on that side of the stream you won’t be left disappointed.Also during our stay we made use of the leisure facilities on offer at the hotel. Although the pool area may be fairly small in size, it’s well worth a visit. Between the sauna, jacuzzi, swimming pool and refreshment showers there’s plenty to help you literally melt away.. We didn’t use the gym during our stay, but it looked more than adequate for a hotel of that size. Definitely worth taking your swimming gear and spending an hour here..Overall, we were very impressed with everything on offer at the hotel. Sadly we didn’t get the chance to make the most of the conservatory area, or Murray suite, but we will the next time. There is a large box of board games in the Murray suite, along with 3 flat screen TVs, so along with the pool and outdoor areas, there’s plenty to keep the kids amused if you’re coming as a family.. Definitely recommend to all ages, whether it be couples looking for a break, or family groups. Perfect location to explore the local area..

Just back from a two night stay and what a wonderful time we had! The classic room was cosy and clean with all the facilities you needed! Wine and canapés were a lovely addition on our first night and the meal in the 1536 restaurant was absolutely delicious! We retired after dinner to the Blue Dug bar and enjoyed another few hours! Breakfast was again delicious with plenty of choices and as much as you wanted! Spa was big enough for the time we spent in it and was quiet so we had the place to ourselves! Had dinner the second night in the Blue Dug bar and again was delicious! Staff couldn’t do enough for you from the receptionist to the bar staff/waiting staff, we even got a good morning from the housekeeper! Was snowing yesterday but managed a walk in the beautiful grounds! Would highly recommend and hope to return soon x

Just back from an overnight stay here. Such a beautiful setting. Evening meal was unbelievably good As was the canape 's and wine. Breakfast was awesome too. Staff were extremely friendly and looked to be happy albeit working. Bar was a lovely relaxed atmosphere and not over priced like other local Spa breaks in area. My only problem was finding the actual spa facilities a bit small and not alot of room to relax but that aside I would still highly recommend a visit . be back very soon to.use our return offer. Thank you for your kind gesture of card in our room to a nice touch. x

The hotel staff were friendly and the food was very good but unfortunately when they are cooking in the kitchen there doesn’t seem to be any extractors and the dining area we were in was full of cooking fumes - so bad your eyes were nipping - also the room we were given was overlooking the garbage bins - worst room in the hotel it seemed - the grounds were lovely - great area but that’s the reason I would give a max if 3 for the rating !

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 :)

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

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!

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.

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.

We were slightly disappointed with our stay. Firstly, on arrival we were told that because the hotel was busy we were in one if their smallest rooms. Not the best welcome. It was maybe one if the furthest from reception too.We were told that unfortunately the jacuzzi and steam room were not working that day but on reading some recent reviews, this appears to be an ongoing issue.The room was small and very basic. The radiator didn't work but there was a plug in heater which we used. The shower wasn't great, and there was very little hot water.The bar staff, food and drinks were all lovely. We enjoyed our meal and breakfast. We planned to get up and use the spa facilities before leaving but on heading down to reception in the morning noticed a sign to say the pool was closed for maintenance. The spa, gym, pool were all closed.There is also painting etc going on in the hallways and many rooms, which I understand is necessary but given the hotel had emailed us prior to arrival asking if we wanted to pay for upgrades, lunches etc, they could have also advised of the ongoing works and scheduled maintenance in the spa etc.... We might have changed our dates.We enjoyed our break but it could have been better

For the food I would give 5 ⭐️the evening meal was one of the best I have had on an Itison deal. The chef and kitchen staff deserve acknowledgement of how fantastic the food is. As my duck would take a while to cook we were given sorbets, compliments of the chef which was a lovely touch. I would return for the food alone.However, Extremely disappointed with the pool area as when we arrived we were told the jacuzzi & sauna were out of order. The whole reason I booked this deal was because it was one of the few hotels that had this on offer. It was a birthday gift for my fiancé so I felt really let down for him as it was supposed to be a special trip for his 40th. Also there were children and swimming lessons going on in the pool so there was no room for 2 adults!! The staff that we had interacted with were perfectly pleasant & helpful so I can't fault that. Just very disappointed with the pool facilities as there was no prior warning of things not working even though I had been in touch via email in the days prior to our stay. I would definitely return however I would want to be made aware of facilities being out of order and given the chance to withdraw my booking. Would've been 5⭐️had the facilities been working or some kind of compensation given for the lack of it.

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.

Would definitely recommend Barony Castle,and would like to wish Gemma all the very best in the forth coming of her baby in February.

My husband and I were invited back to the hotel by the management team due to some challenges we had the last time (May). We arrived and there was a large party just at reception before us so there was a reasonable wait to get checked in. The receptionist wasnt sure if they had finished cleaning the room so we popped to the bar for a drink whilst waiting. Got to our room and it was lovely Tweedale Suite free upgrade due to the previous problems. Was abit surprised that we no longer receive the Le Club Welcome drink voucher or bottle of wine that we had in May due to changes in Scottish law !?!?! Anyway had booked a meal for 7pm in the main restaurant and had Steak on the stone that is new to the menu. This was absolutely amazing and I would return back just to have that again. This visit has definitely restored our faith in Barony Castle however still think they need to keep on top of the cleaning a bit better. (Food splatters on the netting in the restaurant as an example).

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.

Myself and daughter booked a spa day , my first ! To say I was a little disappointed , pool was freezing we where not given code to get in so had to find someone , treatment I had booked wasn't on offer (or wording changed ) so had to pick another . I chose a pedicure and Gemma was lovely but after an hour toenails where still tacky and smudged and had to be re done when I got home ! Afternoon tea was delicious and the setting beautiful but don't think I would book another .

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.

Pour avoir utilisé plusieurs autres Mercure, le Barony est probablement au bas de la liste.

I always enjoy a wander around the grounds as well as going into Peebles. The bar food and breakfast are wonderful. New decor is classy. I can see it appeals to a wide range of guests and us now becoming more popular. Look forward to returning. Can I have s free stay for that fab review please 😀

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 !

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!).

Last minute booking for my birthday through a 3rd party for a B&B stay, with cocktails & canapés .Beautiful entrance, felt pleased with ourselves, but no warm welcome at the reception, straight away it was about the up-sell of booking into restaurant for evening meal, it wasn't heavy handed, but it was the only conversation from the receptionist... We where "Given" directions to the room... And when I repeated them to her, she said "it's sign-posted" along the way.We found the room, but it was complicated, lots of long narrow corridors, ....beautiful pictures on the wall to view though!Room, standard enough, again, upgrade going on,... Radiator next to bed was dirty, hole in bathroom wall which had been temporarily filled. Shower didn't quiet meet the description of over bath, yes it was on the wall.... But not positioned well enough, so had to lean into it, and the shower door was not a good fit, so bathroom floor was very wet . The room gets very warm, there is a fan in the cupboard to use, but I preferred to open the window.We where looking forward to the spa, jacuzzi, thermal loungers and sauna. Pool was Luke warm, but feels cold when you step in. The jacuzzi was the same temperature, and attached to pool, the power taps...one wasn't working, and the other I had to get out pool, step on the button to make it work, and then jumped back in pool to use!. The sauna is very small, and although warm, not what I would class as a sauna! The thermal loungers.....All 2 of them, again Luke warm... Should have been a lot warmer, they are just by the side of the pool, and I guess that's why didn't didn't feel warm... Should have been in an enclosed room for the benefit of them. Robes come at a price, not classed as complimentary ... Female changing room is communal and tiny, with one shower.The grounds are beautiful, and the the great polish map is quiet wonderful when you become aware of the story. The games room, was a lovely room, but no atmosphere and no views, no pool/snooker table etc... Basket full of board games. 3 big TVs but all on the news channel, even a music channel would have been better. We ate in the lounge bar, the food was delicious, no complaints here what so ever, we had breakfast in the resturant, and there was plenty of choice, and ample of it ... However they never had our name on the list... So had to wait five mins will the girl tootered back and forth before I went to reception myself, and they had us checked in the wrong room, and not listed as B&B!However, our cocktails and canapés have got to be the biggest let down!... I have never felt so amused by food! First all we wait for 20 mins for them to be served...when I had to go ask again... It was oh.ok. I will chase that up type of conversation. But there was no apology or urgency , and after another 10 mins or so of waiting I discovered why. Four, breaded haggis balls. Four..... Deep-fried... And for too long. They even had the cheek to serve it in two plates! I don't even eat haggis!... It's not what I would class as canapés !.Believe it or not, I would stay here again. !! Yes the pool area could do with some improvements, the room was acceptable for us, however if elderly or infirm, not ideal, you would need to request a lower floor room. The food is excellent, and the grounds are lovely, hoping that as the upgrade continues, the niggles will be addressed. This place has huge potential. I rated 3* as place is clean, and the food is lovely. Staff let it down, they could do with a lesson in .... ?????.....Plain old nice conversation!!!.. Don't be false. Just be nice!

Upon arrival I thought wow!

When checking out paying the bill was the most communication I had from any Staff memberCleaning needs a review bathroom zine was never cleaned during the 3 nights we stayedBreakfast was OK coffee yuk... Will I return in a word No !Location is niceNo one just seemed bothered such a shame.

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.

Just home from an overnight stay here. Our massages were amazing. Food was outstanding quality and great value for money. All staff kind and helpful. I didn't find the bed very comfy but my fiance did. Off for an early morning swim just the 2 of us had whole pool to ourselfs. Will defiantly be back. Only downside is says games room which we though let's go only has an Xbox no pool or snooker table or dart board. Maybe something to introduce.(Not marking down for that).

Currently staying for 2 nights on a special deal. Staff have been very helpful and friendly. The dining room is lovely and the menus offer good choice and flexibility including a Healthy Option menu. The chef without complaint adapted a meal for me to conform to my needs. Breakfast offers something for everyone. Our room has been comfortable, clean and more than adequate. We had a bottle of wine in our room on arrival. We have used the spa facilities and enjoyed the pool and heated relaxing chairs. Using the dressing gowns and slippers provided we were able to move freely through the hotel from room to spa. The grounds are lovely with lots to explore. We have thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing break and wouldn't hesitate to return.

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!

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.

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!

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 ...

My work colleagues and I had been here in 2015 for an xmas party night and really enjoyed it so we rebooked for this year. Emma on bookings and all other staff we dealt with were great. Our rooms were clean and we had also managed to hve two interconnecting ones.However. The food service was shockingly slow. We were told 7 for 7.30pm. Didnt get our first course til almost 8.20 and our main til after 9. Teas/coffees were being served while we were only just starting our sweets. The disco didnt start til 10 and the music altho alright was not nearly as good as last years. From talking to other guests we were not the only ones disappointed.

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 husband and I got married here this month and the planing start to finish was excellent. Ashley is a credit to your team and I looked forward to every meeting with her. She also offered to get something the day before the wedding so it could be my something borrowed. The room, the alter and the Eddleston suite just added to the beauty and the magic of our special day. The food at the reception was amazing and the hog roast provided in the evening was a hit for all guests. I choose to have banoffee pie as dessert and we nearly needed security with the guests fighting over the extra puddings as they were that delicious. I will happily stay in this hotel again and again and if I could have another wedding I would not think twice about having my wedding here again, especially with the help and support of your staff it makes the day that much better.

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.

We have just recently had our wedding at Barony Castle and I have to say we all had a brilliant time. It is a beautiful venue, which has made for some excellent pictures. I just wanted to make a special mention to Ashley, who helped to plan our wedding along the way and was always helpful and quick to respond to any emails with queries we might have had. Also to Jeanette, who actually ran our wedding on the day. She was always there to keep us right and I think she definitely made us feel more at ease! A few of my guests also mentioned how helpful she was. Thanks again!

We had the most amazing wedding here and can't thank the staff enough for making it a day of our dreams. We were here for 4days in total and had 110 guest staying over at the hotel for our wedding day. At every opportunity the hotel went out of their way to make the whole weekend amazing, from catering for a private dinner for 40 people on Friday, to going in to town to get ice lollies for the children on our wedding day...everything was perfect. Thank you lovely staff of Barony castle! We would recommend to any bride!

This is the third time we've visited Barony Castle last night. We had to bring our four year old this time. Lovely place, really enjoy it however, they've taken the games room away with pool and a dart board in it. We brought our little boy as we loved this about the castle, knew he would too they do however have two games consoles but the Internet connection wasn't working properly so the xbox wouldn't work and they only had a 12+ game in the other, he did play it but gutted couldn't play pool . He couldn't play his tablet because it couldn't connect to the Internet. Good job it was lovely outside and we could walk around the grounds. Just one other thing, maybe small to some but they only had two or three music channel's on the tele. Radio one, two and three and radio one which was the best out a bad bunch kept going off. For us we like to listen to the channels whilst getting ready. Before there was more channels. We went swimming lovely pool but sauna didn't work. We would say that we were just disappointed. Such a shame not too sure if we'll be back. But I think so overall lovely place

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.

I just got married to Joe Singleton and we would recommend Barony Castle for a venue. Great service and staff are very friendly. Beautiful location. Food is good.

Just home from a 3 day stay at Barony Castle. . The welcome and attention from the staff was outstanding. In fact, without exception, the friendly attentive staff members were all 5 star. The dinner was beyond expectation, often on such a bargain of a deal this is an area where corners are cut. Each course was perfectly cooked and presented and no skimping on portions. Although the hotel is looking very tired in places, this is currently being addressed. Absolutely no complaints. Highly recommended.

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.

My husband and I stayed here last weekend with our 5 month old pup. I found the room warm, clean and comfy if a wee bit tired (this is not unusual with hotel "doggy" rooms). The staff were amazingly pleasant and helpful , going out of their way to assist us with our playful pup. The food and service in the restaurant was commendable with a buzz about it (admittedly it was a busy weekend).I cannot comment on the spa as I did not use it but on reading some other fbk comments, I wonder if we were in the same hotel. I certainly thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
