We stayed as part of a wedding party. I'd paid for an upgraded room as it was my hubbies BIG birthday on the same weekend but judging from other people's rooms, I probably didn't need to. The bed was very comfortable and the temperature of the room perfect. Plenty of storage space, TV and hairdryer all very useful. The shutters... More

Stayed here with friends on Friday 8th Feb. The building is very nice and atmospheric. Stayed in Rooms 23 & 24 which were both quite large and more than adequate. Situated at the top of the castle with views to the river albeit slightly limited by the battlements. Dinner in the orangery was very good & enjoyable and the service... More

Absolutely perfect place to relax with family. Had a lovely evening with drinks in the library bar and then a superb meal in the dungeon restaurant. Will definitely go back in the very near future. I may even spend a night or two there as I believe they do a haunting experience. The castle itself is amazing and steeped in... More

Stayed here for one night and it was fine. Our room was rather dated but the four poster bed made it a bit more special. The food was super and our Italian waiter made our evening. This is quite a spooky hotel with various happenings going on! The hotel was very much understaffed and the spa wasn't staffed at all.... More

My partner and I stayed over on a Sunday night as part of a Livingsocial deal. We upgraded to a suite and also to eat in the Dungeon. We payed a bit more but it is well worth it. Although we upgraded our room we were given room 29 which was more of an apartment with a well inside!!! The... More

We satyed here for 1 night in January in one of the Castle Rocks rooms in the grounds of the Castle. The rooms were in a lovely secluded setting just a 2 minute walk from the castle itself (we quite enjoyed this little walk over the bridge across the stream). We chose this room as opposed to the actual castle... More

I stayed at the Dalhousie Castle as part of a wedding party, and I can't recommend this place highly enough. The staff were incredibly helpful and approachable, they made sure everything was taken care of for us and were very flexible. The rooms themselves were very comfortable and well kitted out with everything you may need. Though our room wasn't... More
