The Tontine Hotel Hotel

High Street , Peebles, United Kingdom

Welcome to The Tontine Hotel

The Tontine Hotel dates back to 1808 and is the only building on Peebles High Street, which is set back from the road, forming a small open square to the front of the building.  The building takes its name from the way in which it was funded; the tontine principle, and it is thought that Napoleonic prisoners of war may have helped to build the hotel.  A plaque on the front of the building commemorates this.

Nowadays, The Tontine is a comfortable and modern 36 room hotel with a popular restaurant, bar and bistro.  Customer satisfaction is at the core of everything that we do and we take great pride in providing warm hospitality and locally sourced produce for a true Scottish dining experience.

From fishing to mountain biking, our knowledge and activity expertise mean you can truly experience Scotland.  Edinburgh is only 21 miles away, so we are perfectly located to explore the history, culture, events and many attractions in the Scottish Borders & Midlothian.

The Scottish Borders offers 21 different courses from Peebles Golf Club to Roxburgh Golf Course, Torwoodlea, Cardrona, West Linton and many more all just a short drive away from the hotel.
