WELCOME TO Peebles HYDRO
Peebles Hydro, at the heart of Peebles since 1878.
When we opened our doors back in 1878, we did so as “Peebles Hydropathic Institute” with all manner of weird and wonderful water cures. You’ll be pleased to hear things have changed. We waved a fond farewell to our mustard poultices and high pressure jets, and welcomed rather more relaxing treatments.
ABOUT PEEBLES HYDRO
Sitting on the Venlaw Hill, we’ve been an iconic landmark of Peebles since we laid our first foundation stone. But loads has changed since then.
For starters, the original Peebles Hydro building burnt to a crisp in 1905. Two years later, the building that stands so proudly today opened its doors to the public in a grand ceremony and we’ve been welcoming guests ever since.
Inside, the original Victorian “water cures” are long gone and far more relaxing spa treatments and leisurely fun now awaits.
We’re currently about half way through refurbishing our bedrooms and we’ve made big changes elsewhere too, but we’ll let you discover those as you explore our website!
Simply put, there are four things we value at Peebles Hydro:
- Our people – both the guests we serve and our team who serve them
- Our community – we’re rooted in this town, shaped by it in fact, and we work to give back to it
- Our environment – we feel privileged to be in such a beautiful part of the world and we do our utmost to keep it that way
- And perseverance – we’ve come a long way but we can, and will, go further because we’ll never stop trying to give you the best possible stay
