We have just returned from an overnight break, a dinner, bed and breakfast deal with complementary bottle of wine and use of spa facilities. We loved Dalhousie Castle and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was well furnished, very clean, crisp white cotton bedding and a very comfortable bed. We had amazing food throughout our stay, steak with pepper sauce,... More

Dalhousie is a castle but broadly a later mansion which overlies the ancient portion which accommodates the dining room and lower bedrooms. A meal in the vaulted candlelit basement was novel and the food and service satisfactory. A bit 'chilly' on a snowy January day, as the fire was not lit n the library where one would chose to sit...

Changing rooms poor - shower door fell off and in on partner. Robes are for someone size 8/10 and you have to search for them and the towels!... More

Stayed here on 20 and 21 February to start of our honeymoon having booked a themed double room. We arrived in early hours of morning still in our wedding attire and were shown to room 19 which is up at least 6 flights of stairs. Not easy in a full wedding dress! We were anticipating a bit wow factor on... More

I stayed in this hotel twice, once on my very first trip to Europe as a naïve 20 year old, and many years later, as an experienced traveler. Both visits were excellent. The first time, I stayed in a room with spectacular views. I ate an excellent dinner in the dungeon restaurant and felt like royalty. I usually travel off-season,... More

A great weekend at Dalhousie. Having watched Fifty Shades of Grey the previous night, our Oliver Cromwell Suite equipped with a substantial four poster bed and dining in the dungeon let the imagination go wild. Great comfort in the room which was warm and clean. The dinner and breakfast were superb in terms of quality and what better way to... More

Absolutely delightful, well worth the money. Staff were friendly and polite, obviously very well trained in customer service. We had a good selection of sandwiches and a very tasty choice of cakes and scones which were all homemade. We will certainly be visiting again.
