The owner of Cringletie, Bill Cross, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be recognised as Best Hotel Experience, and on such a special occasion, at the inaugural South of Scotland Thistle Awards.

“To be short-listed as a regional finalist in the Thistle’s was fabulous, but to be named as winner of Best Hotel Experience, and in such prestigious company, is a great honour.

“This achievement recognises the hard work and commitment of our whole team and we are extremely proud to have brought the award home to Peebles”.

The hotel has built a world-renowned reputation and attracted some high profile visitors.
