6 reviews of barony castle in English
a great place to visit and steeped in History.....Was a polish base in the war and has a 3d map built in the grounds, also a pagan place of worship in the hotel grounds, it is a very interesting place to visit....lots to do nearby in Peebles. Very friendly staff and some great deals available. Well worth a trip north of the border
Stunning setting! Always has great deals available so keep an aye out. Hotel is specifically designed for events tho so take that into consideration. Pool is rubbish. Great base to explore borders tho and overall I would recommend!
Booked a room at a promotional price of £19. Check in was swift, room was very small, but for £19 couldn't complain - was clean and came with tea tray. Bathroom was as big as the bedroom, also clean with complementary toiletries. Didn't eat there, but set menu was ok, priced at £18 for 2 courses or £22 for 3. Bar is nicely decorated and cheaper than the bar/restaurant at the end of the lane. There is a small swimming pool and gym on site, but I did not use this. Grounds are lovely and went for a walk in the snow on the Sunday morning. Close to Edinburgh and there is a frequent bus service. Well worth the money and I will return in the summer.
Lovely looking hotel which is part of the DeVere hotel group , managed to book a room for 2 nights for my father for £10 per night , rooms are not quite luxury as needed done up a bit but for what we paid an absolute bargain. Nice bar area with plasma tv also has gym with pool etc.
The Barony Castle is extremely impressive as you drive up the long driveway. We had a bit of a laugh when we noticed the 'PREPARE TO MEET THY GOD’ inscription above the door. This seemed particularly apt when we later discovered the hotel is apparently haunted by numerous ghosties! The hotel runs 'haunted weekends’ based on this. The public areas in the hotel are very nice and the grounds are huge with lots to see, including a huge map of scotland made out of rocks which Polish soldiers laboured over during WW2 and numerous rope climbing courses. The hotel extension made the hotel a bit rabbit warren like but it wasn’t a problem for us but I’d imagine it would be if you were less mobile. The rooms were fine - could maybe do with a bit of upgrading but they were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was nice but the dining room is incredibly dark even first thing in the morning. They have a late breakfast until 11am on a Sunday and we were one of the last people down. Got the impression the staff wanted us out of the way. I took my son to the bathroom only to find my uneaten plate of food had been whisked away when I came back and all the hot buffet food removed from the plates. Made do with pastries which were really tasty anyway. All in all I’d thoroughly recommend this hotel for an interesting, comfortable and atmospheric place to stay.
booked a special offer room at £59 for the two of us, no breakfast included. Arrived and the place looked wonderful all decorated for christmas. Beautiful building and lovely grounds. Welcomed with a dram of whisky or a sherry (nice smooth whisky too!) Room was a bit of a hike to get to but clean and tidy and looked onto a nice old building. Room service was quick, food was ok not the best. Bar was nice but couldve done with a fire to make the place cosier. Quick check out too.
