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

The menu was excellent, and well cooked. We had... 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....

As a birthday gift I got my friend an overnight deal with stobo, and it defiantly didn't let me down. All staff from reception, spa staff, dining staff, to towel staff, all were friendly and welcoming. We stayed at the castle lodges which were ideal for our stay (if I had to be severely picky I would recommend bigger beds... More

I've been going to Stobo Castle for many years and have always enjoyed it. However, I do not think it is as good as it used to be. I cannot fault the quality of the rooms, cleanliness and politeness of staff. Although there is a wide selection of beauty treatments, I do feel they are over priced. The therapists are... More
