Beautiful room and location. Loved the falconry. Excellent food at lunch and dinner although service speed was average. Friendly staff. Would return. Lovely pre-dinner drinks in library. My son loved the armour.

We booked this place for my husband's birthday. Stayed in the Sir Walter Scott room. It was wonderful. Very well appointed. The best part is the library. Sitting there with Dickens, Pickwick Papers in one hand and a single malt scotch in the other. Come on, what can beat that?? Our waiter in the library, think his name was Sandobol,... More

I am a ghost hunter. My husband and I booked at this castle because we had read on the internet that it was in the top 10 in Scotland as being haunted. At this point in our trip, this would have been our 6th castle stay ... in which 3 castles prior were very haunted. We arrived on May 22,... More

I was so excited to stay in a true historical castle. We don't get these at home in Canada. It was my husband's 50th birthday and I really wanted him to have a fantastic and memorable day. We arrived early... around 10:30am (we were doing the falconry experience at 12pm) and they saidthat no one had staying in the Lady... More

We stayed at Dalhousie around 18 months ago and feel in love with the place so much we decided to get married here. Our day was like a fairy tale from start to finish! All the staff were amazingly accommodating, nothing was too much trouble and I cannot recommend the venue highly enough. The rooms are as always beautiful, the... More

My daughter recently got married and chose this amazing venue, despite her and the majority of guests living way down the south of England. It proved to be well worth the trip for us all. The co-ordination of the wedding itself was mainly orchestrated by the very efficient and happy Damien. He ensured everything ran really smoothly. The wedding ceremony... More

I booked a room at Dalhousie Castle to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. We had travelled from Suffolk, up to John O'Groats, down the west coast of Scotland and then onto this Hotel. We were met at the reception by a very happy lady whom informed us that we were early and that our room was still being cleaned (we... More

Must stay for all going to Edinburgh and at least for a night's stay and experience living inside a castle...very well maintained and neat and clean castle hotel...the bathroom had separate taps for hot and cold water which makes it difficult but I have seen this most of the UK hotels.....Recommended stay for all for at least one night here

Our stay at the Dalhousie was just disappointment after disappointment. Driving up to the castle, myself and my partner thought, “Wow! This is going to be good.” It looked fantastic! Unfortunately, from the moment we stepped foot inside, we were unimpressed. Checking in, the gentleman that dealt with our check-in wasn’t the most welcoming, sign here, here and here, and... More
