Date of Visit: September 2018 Unit:  Touring Caravan Rating:
Reviewer: Andy McKay 14 reviews from this member

Stayed here for 8 nights in September, site far better than then expected from some of the poor reviews. Staff really helpful when we arrived and allowed us to choose our own pitch due to some heavy rain making the grass slippery in places. Lovely site set amongst trees and very quiet even at each weekend, we didnít visit the bar so canít comment on that aspect. The showers which a lot of reviews have slated were fine (we used the ones furthest from reception on the touring site). Although internally the wash room and shower cubicles look a little dated the shower controls and heads looked pretty new and more importantly delivered plenty of piping hot water with proper on / off taps (no push buttons here). Even better was the underfloor heating in the gentís washroom, great for warming your toes whilst having a shave. Storm Ali swept over us during the week but to be honest it didnít really bother us as the site is pretty sheltered although the wind did blow a couple of trees over near reception which were soon cleared away. We would definitely stay here again as the site is good value and not on a main road with an easy stroll into Peebles, itís also a great base for hiking and cycling.

Return visit, as the location in Peebles (a Borders town that's doing very well) & the huge dog run on site suits us, and Traquair is always worth visiting. Had been wary coming back because my formal complaint about the showers two years ago still appeared to be valid.

Pleased to report that all the showers in the lower touring area have new fittings, and are now powerful & hot (and not press-button). No complaints there! In addition, as repeat customers, we got a discount - £20 mid week reduced to £16, £25 weekend reduced to £20 (hardstand & EHU). Again, no complaints there: the price seemed fair.

The site has planning permission (quickly found online) dated 2015 for extending the static caravan area, lots of chalets & 130 houses. The plan includes moving the touring pitch uphill to behind the house. There was no sign of work starting, but I wouldn't expect any investment in the lower touring area now - a motorhome service area would be handy: if you're staying more than a few days, you'll need a canister or bucket to carry grey water to the drain below the standpipe as there's no dump. You'll also need your own water pipe to fill up with fresh water.

We visited as two families with 4 kids between us aged 10-5yrs. We were located on the top tent field. I don't know if this is random or we were put up there because it was closest to the playground but we would have preferred to be down the bottom field where is was quieter and not as packed in.

The toilet and shower facilities have seen better days and there didn't seem to be a routine for cleaning - the men in our group said there was blood in one of the sinks on the Saturday morning and it was still there when leaving on the Sunday.

To get to the toilets you have to go past the entrance to the bar. On the Friday night it was karaoke night and we had to shuffle the kids past smokers and drunk people just to get teeth brushed!

The site served a purpose, it was in a decent location, Peebles is lovely, and the cost was reasonable for a tent pitch with hook up - but I would rather pay a bit extra to have clean facilities.

We won't be visiting again.

Pleasantly located site within walking distance of Peebles town centre. We were allocated a decent pitch down at the bottom of the site. Good dog walking possibilities around.

Facilities were a bit 'tired' perhaps, but certainly adequate. Didn't visit the on site bar.

Peebles is a great base for walking and mountain biking. Good trails in Glentress forest park, and there is also an easy cycle trail running along the course of an old railway line to Innerleithen.

Traquair House is worth a visit, too. The maze is great family fun.

Reviewer: Chumbeiro 12 reviews from this member

Pleasantly located 25 minutes walk from the town centre and with pitches in mature parkland this site has so much potential. Unfortunately the facilities are sadly lacking.

We used the site to access the nearby 7Stanes MTB trails; small campervan, two adults, hardstanding, electricity included (but not wanted or needed) and stayed for two nights, total price £45.

The biggest issue that we had was the facilities, or more accurately, the lack thereof. Touring area has two dated, small toilet blocks with two showers and two toilets each for M/F. After a day's muddy riding it was impossible to have a hot shower due to the lack of water pressure. A previous reviewer (12 months ago) said that he'd pointed this out to management and 'no one else had complained'. I tried three of the four showers during the stay and all were totally inadequate, each producing a slow dribble of hot water from unstable shower heads at 38 degrees. Turning the temperature down from the maximum temperature stopped the water flow completely. I'm not exaggerating.

No-one seemed to be available in the site office when we were on site to make our complaints known.

If you have your own shower in your unit, great. Give it a go, you may have a much more positive experience.

Appreciate that our stay was in the last week of the season so perhaps the management intend to invest in new facilities over the close season?

We'll definitely return to Peebles but sadly not to this site.

Reviewer: Welshy165 5 reviews from this member

First time visit to Rosetta I have been to Peebles a few times before and have always stayed at crossburn due to the bad reviews of Rosetta. First impressions were good, very big campsite, staff were friendly and helpful. Hard standing pitch was flat, it's a bit tricky to get onto pitch though as we had to reverse up a grass hill. Nice little bar on the site with very reasonable prices. Now for the bad bit. There are 2 toilet blocks but they are tiny and look like they date from the 1970's only 2 showers and 2 toilets in each block. On the Saturday night one of the gents toilets blocks was locked with a sign saying out of order. This only left the 1 toilet block open for the whole touring area. This could be a great site if they spent some money on new toilet blocks to bring the caravan site up to date.

Spent 2weeks at Rosetta holiday park. The staff couldn't do enough for us and were very happy to help and it didn't matter what time it was. The park is a perfect base to explore Scotland. We will definitely be booking again next year

Reviewer: Fiona W 174 reviews from this member

Site almost deserted on our 2-day visit, we hadn't booked. It's an informative check-in process, and the site brochure has a number to phone if there are any problems out of hours. We could change our pitch if we chose, let the office know next morning. More suited to caravans than motorhomes, we thought, as many pitches are accessed across soft grass or are on a slope. There's no motorhome service area for taking on fresh water or emptying the grey water. We didn't see anyone dodgy on site, and indeed there was an elderly person there on their own so we didn't think security (or lack of it) was an issue. Totally quiet at night, bar the owls. Pretty parkland setting. Excellent for the dog as the big unmown upper field between the statics and the golf course is off-lead.

The main problem was the showers. Low pressure I can understand, but water dribbling down the wall from a floppy shower head is not a shower. A stool or seat would be handy too. I talked to the owners when we were leaving, and recommended they try to take a shower themselves. I was told that no-one had ever complained before, and that the showers are to be refurbished over the next few months. Because of the showers, £20 was over-priced compared to similar sites we'd been to in the Borders. That's the off-season price too.

It's a 20 minute walk into town. The very best wine & spirit shop we know! Beautiful war memorial in a courtyard by the museum: Peebles lost one tenth of its menfolk in WW1. There are Motorhomes in the riverside car park, many Borders towns allow free one night stops.

Camped here to mountain bike at Glentress, Took pooch with us and site was great, ideal location for Glentress and walking distance to Peebles and tesco and pubs. Bar on site as well. Field set aside especially for pooch walkies which was great being able to let him off lead. Fresh air must have done him some good as he slept later every morning. Re-booked to go back a couple of weeks later before we left the site and got a discount off next booking. Already looking at couple of bookings here for this year.
