The best day spa experience we've ever had. Bought it as a joint birthday present to ourselves, and were dreaming up reasons to return before we'd even left! Felt very well looked after, treatments were lovely, facilities fabulous, & lunch was pretty tasty. Going back soon for our anniversary and can't wait!

This was my second trip to Stobo and I am already dreaming of the next time I can go! I was initially concerned at the idea of going on my own but I needn't have given it a seconds thought!

Dear Guest, It was very kind of you to post such a favourable review of your recent visit to Stobo for two nights on your own. In doing so, you have highlighted how relatively comfortable guests on their own tend to feel in a destination spa as opposed to a hotel environment with spa facilities bolted on. Your comments are... More

Just returned from my 6th residential visit. It's a beautiful spa, very luxurious however it was the busiest I've ever seen it which did spoil it a bit from my friend and I. The steam rooms were very busy as was the pool. The loungers by the pool were never empty. The hot tubs had lots of flies floating in... More

Well what can I say. My Girlfriend and I have been here three times now. The setting is idyllic. Saunas, steam rooms and swinging seats. Best thing however was the outside hot tubs. Friendly staff, dressing gowns and slippers supplied. Perfect!!!!!

I've been coming here for about 20 years and have always left my day visits feeling relaxed and happy. However, my friend and I were incredibly disappointed with our last visit. It was just 'nothing special' and am thinking we are 'stobo'd out! Shame. We did inform staff about how we felt, but....
