Castle Venlaw Hotel

In a land of castles and country estates, what could be more perfect than a stay in an 18th century country castle? Recommended by Condé Nast Johansens.


In a land of castles and country estates, what could be more perfect than a stay in an 18th century country castle? The original house was built in 1782 and enlarged in 1854 and is an excellent example of Scottish Baronial style. During World War One the building was used as a hospital for British sick and wounded servicemen.

Nestling in 4 acres of beautiful woodland grounds overlooking the ancient town of Peebles, Castle Venlaw Hotel continues the country house tradition, bringing a perfect combination of relaxed informality and the elegance of another age.

Castle Venlaw Hotel, Peebles

Castle Venlaw offers 12 exceptionally spacious rooms including 4 rooms with four poster beds. All the rooms have full en-suite facilities and enjoy magnificent views. Our deluxe rooms are all much larger and provide even more spectacular views. Our two Romantic Suites have four poster beds, a luxury bathroom and an additional romantic bathroom with double bath, heated tiles, fibre optic lighting, CD player and a personal champagne cooler.

All our rooms are named after malt whiskies and have a miniature of the appropriate malt in a plaque in the door. Our guests can enjoy a visit to the Library where they will be able to sample the malt after which their room is named. Just one more way in which Castle Venlaw Hotel is that special bit different…

The culinary expertise offered by our restaurant has recently been reflected by being awarded several high gradings. We have, for the fifth year running, been recognised by the AA with 2 rosettes for our food. You need to taste to believe!
