Excellent price for such a luxurious venue
Exellent location and the price we paid it was fantastic value for money
Relaxed, yet efficient staff and atmosphere.
The staff at Barony Castle were exceptional and the hotel pool and sauna were both excellent (and rarely used).
Our room was slightly dated (but clean) but the overall value of the room was incredible.
Beautiful, scenic situation, conveniently located yet quiet and secluded.
characterful yet had all modern conveniences.
Upon arrival the staff were very warming and welcoming. Once in our rooms received a telephone call to ensure everything was in order which I thought was a greath touch. The grounds are very pleasant around for a little stroll and the hire of mountain bikes at no charge is a great idea as there are lotsof areas around ideal for mountain biking. Enu for evening meal had good choice and reasonably priced. The bar area is very relaxing. There were also tea and coffee and although complimentary a small donation to charity could be made.
Squeeky floor boards I believed fitted in with the age of the castle at first however at 6am in the morning it can get a little annoying when person in the above room is doing a walkathon.
The public areas are good condition and the grounds are amazing. Wonderfully warm check in and majority of the staff were very pleasant. Loved the complimentary coffee in the conservatory.
Breakfast service was very poor and disorganised. Pool tiny. Need to wear name badges.
appearance and surrounding scenery, excellent food
room was fairly small but had all facilities and we had got the room at a good rate
The location is spectacular,the hotel is very comfortable and the staff friendly and welcoming.
Nothing stands out although the break suited our purposes
the barony castle had a unforgiveble atmosphery, and I felt very good. expecially its pynetum was fantastic. very relaxing
Excellent base for touring in the borders, close to Peebles
Inexperienced serving staff, room quality below expections for the cost.
Good comfortable room, pleasant surroundings and a fascinating building. As we only stayed one night, we didn't have time for any of its facilities really. Pool looked good though. Will stay again when next in the area.
No-one on reception to give us a key when we returned after a night out. Anyone could have walked in. Minor complaint really, soon found someone in the bar.
Friendly staff, lovely setting and grounds. Great views from upper floors. Peaceful location.
Breakfast system had glitches though these did get resolved - resulted in waits on different days for tea & coffee/milk/bread/cooked items that should have been avoided tho staff were friendly when sorting things out. Bar system left bar unattended at times when bar staff were (I think) trying to sort drinks for the restaurant. Bedroom door impossible to shut quietly
Although the booking was at a reduced rate we were still surprised at the smallness of the room howevr it did supply the needs of ann overnight stay so was therefore acceptable. It was disappointing that the reservation for the other two people who formed part of the same party had not been recorded however the receptionist dealt with that speedily and without fuss.
The hotel's grounds were obviously not being kept up which was disappointing and the food, both dinner and breakfast was the worst we have ever experienced and is subject to a separate complaint.
