Our improvement journey

Over the past year, significant investment has seen the transformation of a number of the Hydro’s function rooms and public spaces. We’ve introduced a new and improved restaurant, picnic shop, lounge area, and a batch of refurbished rooms, with 70 more to follow over the coming months.

Planning a meeting or conference?

From team building, to conferences, day meetings, and residential packages, Peebles Hydro offers thinking space, networking space and getting to know your space.

Whether you’re planning a catch-up for two, or an event for 400, you’ll find a range of multi-purpose, flexible function space, free Wi-Fi, and plenty of parking.

And the food is pretty awesome too. Our menus have been designed to inspire, and are packed full of seasonal and local ingredients, including fresh fruit and veg grown in our garden.

Last but not least, we offer all the convenience of a city centre location, in the heart of the Borders countryside. If you need transport, our team is on hand to organise a pick-up and drop-off service.
