This is the third time I have stayed at Barony Caslte Hotel near Peebles and I have been impressed in the past. Unfortunately areas of the hotel are in-need of an update ie the carpet that runs throughout the hotel and the rooms in particular. They are both tired and in much need of update, the carpet was really dirty... More

Don't book this hotel - standard room bathroom no better than a travel lodge - old and dated - bedroom small with stained carpets, peeling paint etc. As a gold member there is every excuse under the sun from the lady and gentleman on reception why they can't honor a room upgrade - despite superior rooms being available on line...

Dear KevAustralia, thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear your stay was below your expectations. After investigating this further, I understand the issue with the complimentary upgrade was related to the fact that no Privilege rooms were available, however, we still had a bookable suite (which on the system is treated as Privilege).

This hotel could be so much better. The reception, restaurant and bar areas are really nice but the corridors are rooms are quite shoddy. I was expecting a smart looking room but was disappointed in a room which was slightly better quality than a seaside B&B. Sleep quality wasn't the best either, noisy creaky corridors, slamming fire doors and in... More
