What’s Included

1 or 2 night Borders break for 2

Option of three course dinner

Full access to spa leisure facilities

Full Scottish breakfast

Hands up if your idea of a relaxing short break starts with an early morning body search from airport security and ends with a credit card bill that shows you paid 17€ for an espresso.

And now, hands up if your idea of a relaxing short break begins with a scenic drive through the Borders.

Take it easy and enjoy a reviving Borders break with today’s Big Deal on short break for two at the four star Macdonald Cardrona Hotel, Golf & Spa in Peebles.

With validity until the 31st of July, this Big Deal could be used for a relaxing break or a romantic gift.

Convenient getaway

Just 40 minutes outside Edinburgh and 90 minutes from Glasgow, Macdonald Cardrona Hotel is set in the beautiful Borders countryside and is an easy to reach spot for a convenient getaway.

With a scenic location on the banks of the River Tweed, the award-winning hotel offers luxurious contemporary accommodation in timeless natural surroundings.

Eighteen metre pool

Option one is for two people to enjoy an overnight break in a Classic King room with full Scottish breakfast in the morning.

Option two is the same as above but includes a three course set dinner in the evening.

Option three is for a two night stay in a Classic King room with a three course set dinner on the first night plus a full Scottish breakfast each morning.

All guests can enjoy using the leisure facilities such as the eighteen metre pool, the sauna, gym and steam room.

Hill views

Benefiting from views of the surrounding hills, the classic bedrooms feature rich, soft furnishings, comfortable beds, blackout curtains and luxury en-suite bathrooms with separate showers.

There is free WiFi throughout the hotel.

Award-winning restaurant

The proud holders of an AA Rosette, Renwicks Restaurant is an airy and inviting space, featuring panoramic views of the golf course and the Border hills. The chefs use only the finest Scottish beef, lamb, pork and wild white fish and, where possible, also source local, organic suppliers for the vegetables and dairy products.

The menu changes regularly but typical starters might be the honey-whipped goat’s cheese with a fig, beetroot and caramelised walnut salad or the Scottish salmon rillettes with a smoked mackerel and apple salad.

Popular main courses include the braised rib blade of Scottish beef with button onions, streaky bacon, mashed potato and red wine jus or the grilled fillet of wild hake which is served with Puy lentils, fennel confit and a sherry vinegar sauce.

There will be a supplement for some dishes.

Elemis Spa

Everyone needs a little self indulgence from time to time and the spa at Macdonald Cardrona Hotel offers a great range of treatments (not included) from stress-busting massages to Elemis body nectar nourishing wraps.


The hotel has its own par 72 Championship course, designed by former Ryder Cup player Dave Thomas in 2001.

See & do

The hotel’s activity centre offers rock-climbing, abseiling, quad biking, archery and off-road driving. Alternatively, the mountain biking in the nearby Glentress Forest is superb.

Guests can also take advantage of the hotel’s fishing rights and try to catch some Scottish salmon along the River Tweed.

Happy guests

The Macdonald Cardrona Hotel, Golf & Spa has plenty of enthusiastic reviews on TripAdvisor. These are excerpts from three recent visitors:

‘Lovely hotel. This is the second time we have stayed here and I’ve been very impressed both times. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Great value for dinner and breakfast which consisted of great quality food. The staff were friendly and very helpful.’

‘We were made very welcome. The staff were attentive and friendly. Our room was very clean with a beautiful view of the hillside. Would definitely recommend you stay here. Great for golf trips and spa days. Very nice relaxing atmosphere.’

This contributor enjoyed time away with the family:

‘Fantastic family weekend stay. I would highly recommend the Cardrona Hotel. We stayed here… for my Grandmother’s 90th birthday. The beds were amazingly comfortable. The pool facilities were great. Dinner and breakfast were delicious and generous helpings. Views from the room were beautiful. The staff were very helpful, especially making sure my grandmother was catered for and helping her with the extra wee requests she had… I truly couldn’t fault our stay and we all left feeling very relaxed…’

Perfect summer getaway

Valid until the 31st of July, this Big Deal would be ideal for anyone who could use a refreshing short break.

Forest walks; perhaps a refreshing drink in the bar; picture perfect drives around the Borders – they could all be part of a romantic escape in the summer of 2018.
