A stone's throw from the River Tweed on the Scottish borders, Peebles Hydro is surrounded by the pretty market town of Peebles. The epitome of a relaxing environment, it's also just 22 miles from Edinburgh should you want to head out and explore. At the hotel itself however, it's all about relaxation in a beautiful environment, where a choice of rooms all have spectacular views and come with a warm welcome.,Where you choose to eat and drink may well depend on the time of year. The emphasis is always on fresh local ingredients, enjoyed over fantastic views and the restaurant is overseen by Head Chef Chris whose dark chocolate delice is a real must-try. That said, there's also a picnic shop that's perfect for summer lunches, there's a lounge and sun room for afternoon tea, and for drinks (if the champagne, wines, teas and coffees don't fit the bill) there's a rather unique gin palace with tipples from all over the world.
