I thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Dalhousie Castle. I had been given a voucher for £60 towards a meal as a birthday gift, and after perusing the various restaurants where I could have used the voucher, I selected the Dungeon restaurant at Dalhousie Castle. I thought it sounded like it would be a bit of an unusual dining experience and... More

What a treat it was to stay here. The themed rooms are magnificent and the food in the dungeon is first class. Go ahead treat yourself! The grounds are wonderful especially with the falconry centre on site. The spa is a great place to relax.

I stayed here for my friend's wedding and was shocked at the attitude of the staff. The reception staff were oblivious that there were any weddings that weekend (there were 3). The cleaning staff came into the bridal suite whilst we were dressing the bride and then were upset that they weren't allowed to clean the room then (12:30, the... More

My son married his beautiful bride here on 10th October and what an amazing day it was. The venue is stunning, the food amazing and the service second to none. From the moment we arrived right through to the end of the evening we couldn't have asked for more. The attention to detail was outstanding. The staff worked tirelessly to... More

I was lucky enough to be invited to a wedding here in October 2014. The staff were very attentive and extremely welcoming. The food was lovely, especially when considering the large numbers that were being catered for. The grounds and the actual castle are breathtaking - it is like a fairy tale! The inside of the castle was gorgeous, it... More

My family and I were here for my sister's wedding on the 10th October 2014. From arriving the staff were exceptionally helpful especially Darryl, Damian and the reception team whose names I unfortunately forget! The venue itself is outstanding and the place is immaculate. I have a very large family and the castle was able to accommodate virtually all of... More

We just had my daughter's wedding at Dalhousie and what a truly spectacular venue. It was utterly magnificent from start to finish. The castle & grounds are stunning ( and that's an understatement ) and the history which runs through this beautiful building is almost tangible. Spacious & luxurious rooms, all tastefully furnished with lots of genuine period pieces, all... More

Been waiting years to stay here and was lucky enough to stay last month for one night. It was built over 800 years ago by the Ramsay family. We had a nice room in the main castle, nothing to get too excited about, truthfully not much in room to show you were staying in a castle - the rest of... More

We only spent one night there. Wished we could have stayed another day or two but we were motoring around. Lovely room, great food and drink. We arrived late and were disappointed to have missed the falconry. Hopefully, one day we will be back there. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The first of our 'castle experiences'. Great.

Perfect and beautiful!! We stayed 2 nights at the hotel (the day before and night of our wedding). Majority of our guests stayed as well. The castle is So big, we couldn't get enough of exploring! They have a bar behind the library door .... a hidden-behind-the-bookshelf bar!! We ate in the Orangery and the Dungeon Restaurant (wedding dinner in... More
