Positive Reviews

Good food options

Guests have been pleased with the hotel’s Blue Dug restaurant, which is open for lunch and dinner The quality of the food has been praised, and guests feel that they get a good value for the money they pay.

Nice having a pool

Even in those cold Scottish winters it’s possible to go swimming here at the Mercure Peebles Barony Castle The pool gets top marks here so definite plan on taking a dip The gym is also a guest favorite.


Accessing all the Peebles has to offer is easy from here, which guests appreciated And for the days spent on-site, the beauty of the grounds makes for a great getaway.

Negative Reviews

Decorative problems

Many guests could tell the age of the hotel and said the place was in need of some sprucing up Unfortunately, this sprucing seems to have resulted an inconvenience to some, as many guests were frustrated with decorators in the halls or the smell of paint fumes However, these renovations should be coming to an end soon.

Possible ventilation concerns

Some rooms had damp walls and/or floors, pointing to possible ventilation concerns As an old building, this might be expected sometimes, but be sure to check the room before committing.

Pricey food and drink options

While some people were pleased with the food and rink options, many others found the hotel over-priced Of course, it’s hard to appeal to all price-points.
