We had a family Christmas at Peebles Hydro with a party of 8. Various ages of family members. The package we did was from 23rd to 27th December. We had the most magical time and everyone really enjoyed all that was organised by the hotel.|The food was delicious and every meal was perfect with a large choice as well as stunning buffet. Children in our party were also well catered for with their own menu.|There were so many extra touches the hotel did that made our stay so enjoyable. We even got stockings on Christmas Day on our door handles and also a lovely parting gift at checkout.|Staff at the hotel were superb so friendly and helpful cannot praise them enough.|A huge thank you to Colin restaurant manager who looked after us so well. Also thank you to Caroline hotel manager who made the whole hotel run so perfectly and made us all feel so welcome.|We will be back cannot recommend highly enough.

Exceptional service, brilliant food, fabulous entertainment package and attention to detail for new year. The hotel does need money spending in it, the pool area is shabby and the paintwork etc is a bit tired in places. However the kindness and service level of the staff was among the best we’ve ever experienced, we will definitely be back.
