This hotel was supposed to be my jewel in my honeymoon trip to Scotland, on arrival it is a beautiful Castle with some beautiful grounds, the walk in has a lovely ceiling, reception is dated, the creaky stair walk to our room was expected, the room Cockpen Fourposter is absolutely horrendous, it is definitely not how it looks in the...

I stayed at the Dalhousie Castle with my parents, my husband and my two kids. Everything was excellent! The rooms were beautifully decorated and the bathrooms, excellent. The sauna is specially nice. In the evening, we had a special dinner at the dungeon, expensive but worth every penny. I strongly recommend it. After dinner, Peter, the hotel tour guide, spent... More

This beautiful castle is primarily a wedding venue, so if you are looking to enjoy a peaceful stay and want to be pampered by attentive staff, this is definitely not the place for you! If you do chance it, I would recommend you pay the extra to have your breakfast in your room as, believe me, you will wait a... More

We visited Dalhousie Castle having bought a deal which included afternoon tea and a treatment at the Spa. We had a delicious champagne afternoon tea in the conservatory which overlooked beautiful scenery and then had a very relaxing massage afterwards at the Spa. As part of this we also were allowed access to the various pool facilities, which were clean... More

My husband and I stayed here 2 nights for a friend's wedding. The location is simply breath taking. Pete the night porter is a fantastic host and gives a fun ghost tour of the castle. We stayed on the 4 floor the first night and in the honeymoon sweet the second night. We loved both rooms but the honeymoon sweet... More

We spent Christmas at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed the warm welcome we were given. The food was fantastic at every meal and portions were more than generous! The spa was also very enjoyable with all the facilities we could have wanted.

We stayed at Dalhousie Castle for a birthday treat and it certainly was a treat. The hotel itself is beautiful, all of the staff helpful and polite. We had the full Scottish breakfast which was delicious. In the morning we took part in the falconry on site which was an amazing experience. We would definitely stay again and would recommend...

My husband and I were married at Dalhousie Castle in August, and spent three magical days there. We've also visited Dalhousie twice before, and are so happy with our choice. Our wedding day could not have been more perfect, thanks to the brilliant staff and their vendors. Can't wait to come back for our anniversary :)
