Peebles Hydro

Innerleithen Rd., Peebles, The Scottish Borders, EH45 8LX, Scotland

One of the great "hydro hotels" built in the 19th century for those anxious to "take the waters," the family-friendly Peebles Hydro has comfortable if rather old-fashioned rooms. Meals are served in a grand dining room reminiscent of its Edwardian past. Alas, the hotel is a little elderly and it shows, especially in the external facilities, which are a bit faded; over the next five years the Peebles will be restored to its former glory. But even with current limitations it retains a grand style and a restful air, and the hotel is especially good for families, with an excellent swimming pool and activities throughout the day for kids (some of which are included in the price).
