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. A great event option at the Tontine Hotel would be our Gin Tasting Workshop and Whisky Tasting Workshop events, which can be done before or after dinner. This creates an amazing atmosphere and is always a client favourite!
