Stunning looks when you drive up and glorious open areas for ambling. Stayed 2 nights for a wedding and the bad bits the shower never worked. Had to use one in another room. Lots of grout missing from the bathroom floor as well. When you pay top price it should be perfect. The best bit now. The rooms were big... More

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding reception on 12th May for one night bed and breakfast. We booked a themed room for two at £157 when we arrived around 4pm the receptionist told us our room was already booked and she could only offer a standard double which we accepted. The room was in the dungeon and was... More

This castle is amazing - a beautiful building with perfect bedrooms and reception rooms. The location is lovely countryside a few miles from Edinburgh. There is a contract with a taxI company worth using for arrival. The hotel is not suitable for those with limited mobility as There are lots of stairs. It is also no good if you need... More

Ive hesitated making this review because I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The staff is second to none. The food at the restaurants were delicious. But the hotel itself is lacking. The grounds and ambience is incredible but the rooms are in such disrepair. We paid (1000 CAD) for one night with dinner in the dungeon. Our canopy over the bed... More

Upon arrival at the Castle I was underwhelmed as it was very quiet but I soon realised that it was actually peaceful Getting to your room was a challenge upstairs downstairs and along corridors once you got your bearings it was in fact easy To obtain a drink you called in at the library which is stunning dial 0 on...

Stayed here on the 28th March 2015 after booking a last minute weekend away for our anniversary. On arrival we were met with a friendly welcome where we were offered the opportunity to make dinner reservations where we decided to book dinner in the Dungeon Restaurant. We were given an amazing room upgrade from Ian from a standard room to... More

Stayed here using a voucher deal. On arrival and check in the receptionist was on the phone giving prices to what I assume was a potential customer, so we waited a few minutes. She then noticed we had arrived and ended the phone call "Someone has just arrived so can you phone back later" Im would doubt they did! We... More

This is an amazing venue castle has been well restored we had a beautiful room but the plumbing was a bit challenging. Its a bit difficult to get around not very clear and would not be very suitable if you had mobility problems. Food was superb but sadly some of the staff could do with some service to customer training.
