We have just returned from our 8th visit to Stobo. And we are already booked for our 9th next year. It is like returning to a second home every time we arrive. The staff are very hard working. And we always look forward to seeing James on a Saturday. A true gentleman. 48 hours of relaxation, good food in stunning... More

I was given a blissful spa day voucher as a gift and was a little apprehensive, I thought it may be pretentious. It is not at all pretentious, the staff are all excellent, very professional and welcoming. There was a wide range of people from 20 something to 80 something. All the treatments I received were outstanding. The spa facilities... More

Dear Guest, It was very kind of you to reflect so positively on your recent "Blissful Spa Day" visit to Stobo. Personally, I hate all that pretentious nonsense that sadly we all sometimes come across in the hospitality industry - so, I was delighted you found our staff professional and welcoming. In closing, I do hope we will have the... More

I love Stobo but without appearing sexist I did feel uncomfortable about the increased number of male guests this time. One of the virtues of Stobo is walking around sans makeup in a dressing gown. This doesn't feel the same with so many male guests, one in particular reading a copy of FHM in the drawing room. Good and facilities... More

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your kind comments, following your most recent visit to Stobo. With mothers and daughters, and friends together, I think Stobo will always be a predominantly female retreat - although we have seen a growing trend of couples wishing to spend more quality time within such a relaxing environment. I certainly take your point... More

I start this review pointing out that I'm a normally a fan of Stobo having visited many many times in recent years and three times in 2014 already but the relaxation of two of my recent visits have been spoilt by large groups. Today (Tuesday)- the usual expected & much needed relaxation, peace and quiet of Stobo was shattered by... More

Dear Guest, Many thanks for your review, following your visit to Stobo on Tuesday. I'm so sorry you left feeling disappointed - the group you are referring to was made up of a relatively small number of exceptionally talented and well-mannered aspiring Olympic athletes. They would be genuinely horrified to think that they were responsible for compromising the enjoyment of... More

Apologies for the late review. My husband and I stayed for 2 nights on 28-30 September. This was our third visit this year but first staying 2 nights. We booked basically hours before we arrived and were lucky that their was availability. We received a lovely warm welcome from the ladies on reception and our bags were spirited away to... More

Dear Guest, Many, many thanks for your kind review, following your visit to Stobo with your husband last month.

Started with a very warm welcome from the staff who were so attentive particularly our very good male waiter who couldn't have been more helpful at lunch. In fact all the staff were excellent. We felt thoroughly spoilt. Gorgeous setting. Delicious lunch and tea. Fantastic spa facilities. The Japanese Garden was also well worth a little walk and a great... More

My partner and I recently visited the Spa for the "Lazy Afternoon" option. We booked last minute so didn't have any treatments, but were looking forward to 4 hours of relaxation together. Whilst the facilities offered are great it is obvious that the target market is female, as they are really not suited for couples. My partner was unable to... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your observations, following your recent Lazy Afternoon at Stobo. In addition to the mixed facilities you mentioned, men do also have access to an experience shower in the hydrospa area, plus three outdoor hot tubs. I fully take on board your comment that there is no sauna and plans are in place to introduce this... More
