We have stayed with Malcolm twice and are already planning our return. The house is lovely, our suite was perfect and he has that perfect balance of a warm welcome and leaving you alone to enjoy the peace and quiet. Fantastic breakfast with local produce, big deep bath (perfect after a day mountain biking at nearby Glentress trail centre), big...

Received a lovely warm welcome from Malcolm. The suite was beautiful and lovely and warm and I even had a hot water bottle put in my side of the bed for our return from a night out - perfect service ! The bathroom was great with luxury toiletries and the underfloor heating was sheer bliss. The bed was super comfy...

This little gem is deservedly the best B & B in Peebles - in fact one of the best I've stayed in. The owner, Malcolm made my elderly Mum and I feel so welcome in what is his wonderfully refurbished family home. We ate dinner here one night and like all of our breakfasts the food was really lovingly prepared....

What a wonderful place to make as your base when visiting this scenically beautiful and historically interesting part of the Scottish Borders. Kingsmuir House really does live up to all the superlative reviews it has received (and continues to receive), as does Malcom, the owner and host. My wife and I stayed in the Haystoun Suite, and loved its position...

The Haystoun suite is well positioned and is created to keep the traditional features of the Victorian house whilst incorporating all modern amenities and comforts. One of the highlights of my day is serving breakfast and spending time with the guests to see what would enhance a stay whether this is offering advise on places to visit or eat to...

I was last here 11 months ago, for just one night. I couldn't bear to leave without booking a return visit- and have just had a 2 night birthday treat.

We have stayed here on numerous occasions over the last couple of years, and find it beautifully clean, comfortable, elegant and with great food. It's in a quiet location and the beds are extremely comfortable, allowing for a great nights sleep. There is underfloor heating in the bathrooms which make it feel cozy and luxurious. Malcolm, the owner, is an...

Kingsmuir House is ideally placed for a short stroll across the park into the town or using the regular bus service to the sights of Edinburgh. I am pleased you enjoyed the breakfast provided, I research recipes to add something new and different. I look forward to welcoming you back in 2017.

I sent my parents here for their 40th Wedding Anniversary and Dad's 60th. They thoroughly enjoyed their stay and would love to come back! The food was fantastic and Malcolm was a great host. I would highly recommend Kingsmuir House.

My wife and I choose small luxury guesthouses over large hotels because we like excellent quality in accommodation and food, combined with informality. Kingsmuir House is a prime example of these qualities. We stayed in the Haystoun Suite, which is spacious and elegant and filled with thoughtful touches. Malcolm's breakfast options are varied and of the best quality. We thoroughly...
