We're a family business through and through – family owned, family run, with a warm family welcome for guests and team alike. Our seven hotels are unique (quirky even) and set in three stunning Scottish locations. Some are big, some are small but all offer good food & drink, great beds and a ton of things to do.
We’re slap bang in Peebles High Street and make the most of it. Offering 25 hotel bedrooms, a restaurant, bar and bakery to guests and locals. From the moment you open the door, our quirky welcome is sure to spark your imagination as our character packed spaces draw influence from the March Street textiles mill.
At the Park Hotel we have a great reputation for our delicious, gastro pub style food, served up to our residents and local clientele. We’re passionate about food: Our menu uses fresh, seasonal ingredients from Scotland’s larder and we’re part of Visit Scotland’s Taste our Best Scheme. You’ll prepare food for our informal 60 seat Brasserie style restaurant and our lounge bar. As well as leading a small team, you’ll create your own menus and daily specials
