The whole ambiance was so relaxing, caring and your every need taken care off so expertly and professionally. It was quite an art that no brochure or web site can ever depict correctly. It must be felt and realised to truly appreciate.

Just had 2nights at the castle this is about our 10th visit and it just keeps getting better . We were a party of five friends one who was 87 and was quite frail, as soon as the girls on reception saw her struggling up the front stairs they upgraded her room on the first floor to a ground floor...

Arrived at 8.45am with two friends, the reception staff were perfect. I had to change the timing of a treatment because I needed to leave at 5pm, not a problem for the staff and changed in a flash. The facilities are just great and outdoor hob tub in the fab Scottish rain was one of my highlights, my friends thought... More

This was our second visit, to Stobo. this was to celebrate my nieces 40th birthday. Last year I was disappointed to be abandoned twice by staff who were to show us the facilities. That was the only downside to last years visit which we agreed would not prevent us to returning. We booked in April, and I realised that my... More

Let's start with the positives - it is a beautiful setting, the hydro area is an impressive design - loved the infinity pool with stunning views wonderful jacuzzi. Only let down was no sauna only different variations of steam heat. But in every other way it was like being part of an episode of Fawlty Towers - there was no... More

Dear Guest, Whilst I appreciated your opening remarks, I read your review with a mixture of regret and sadness that any guest could be quite so vindictive in their appraisal of Stobo. In the interests of transparency, it is totally untrue that I "reluctantly" invited you into my office - in fact, I wrote to your friend after your departure... More
