Mercure Barony Castle Hotel

Country House Hotel

Eddleston, Peebles, Peeblesshire, EH45 8QW

    This imposing 16th century Castle has evolved into an outstanding and welcoming Hotel, Conference & Wedding Venue. Located just 35 minutes (17 miles) south of Edinburgh on the edge of the Scottish Borders.

    Barony Castle Hotel offers 72 bedrooms featuring single and double as well as family Rooms, Privilege Rooms and Junior & Superior Suites. The welcoming bedrooms offer all home comforts, a child friendly environment and dogs are allowed in a limited amount of bedrooms. Every room is unique with differing views of the surrounding castle estate, gardens and glen.

    Relax in the Bar Lounge with a cocktail or a dram from our extensive range of malt whiskies whilst pondering our seasonal menu, constructed with individual tastes and dietary requirements in mind. Our Head Chef William Thomson strives to source produce locally from environmentally sustainable backgrounds and has been bestowed the Healthy Living Award. View our Thomson's @ the Castle listing.

    Our leisure spa includes a 10 metre swimming pool with whirlpool bath, thermal experience showers, sauna, heated loungers and two beauty treatment rooms. The gym has a range of Technogym equipment.

    Explore the many bike and forest walking routes around Glentress, visit the grand Traquair House, discover Rosslyn Chapel or Go Ape treetop adventure. Just a few of the local attractions located only a short drive from the castle estate.

    Located in the 25 acres surrounding the hotel is the The Great Polish Map of Scotland. A unique feature in the Scottish landscape.  It is a large physical relief map of Scotland, sculpted in concrete and measuring some 40m by 50m. Definately worth a visit!

    Barony Castle has stunning grounds and the opportunities to capture your special day are endless.  Weather permitting; say “I do “with your ceremony in the castle courtyard or at the Altar located at the food of Yew Tree Avenue.  Alternatively we offer the Elibank Suite, a stunning conservatory flooded with natural daylight.

    Offering an extensive range of meeting rooms, Barony Castle can cater for all your business requirements including indoor and outdoor team building events.
