We recently attended a wedding at Dalhousie Castle and I would highly commend it as a venue. The castle itself is stunning and I couldn't praise the room the reception was held in highly enough. The bedrooms were clean and well equipped but what let the stay down was the service at breakfast the next morning. The breakfast conservatory wasn't... More

Our stay at Dalhousie Castle was superb from beginning to end. The room we stayed in was luxurious and beautifully decorated, the castle itself is very welcoming along with the staff who were so friendly and helpful. We had our dinner in the 'Dungeon', which was excellent, the steaks are to die for. Breakfast was served in the 'Orangery', which... More

My husband, myself and a few friends stayed here for the Christmas party on 5th December and had a fantastic time, the 3 course meal was lovely, service was excellent all staff were friendly, the rooms were spotlessly clean. The breakfast was one of the best I've ever had, the scrambled egg was delicious there was plenty of choice too.... More

Dalhousie castle is breathtaking inside and out. The falconry experience in the grounds was perfect for my bird loving daughter. We spotted deer while dining in the Orangery restaurant. I thoroughly enjoyed afternoon tea in the Library feeling completely at ease in the grandeur surrounds. Staff were dressed in kilts woohoo and as we were staying on the top floor... More

Be careful, we booked and got a room in a dingy house in the grounds. We expected to be in the castle - the small and narrow bridge is beautiful but not really suited for wide cars. No lights were on and no courtesy access lights - took us 10 minutes to open the door after I nearly fell over... More

16 of us went here for an office conference/team building excercise and it was fantastic! We travelled up on the train from Newcastle and then took taxis from the station. Our first night was spent in the "dungeon" having our meal and drinks then the following day after a team conference we spent it taking part in the clay pigeon... More

Second time we've been and loved it even more on this visit. We had two lovely nights, lovely castle room, lovely views and such a beautiful place. Food was lovely, dinner in both the dungeons and the orangery was fab as was the breakfast Spoilt ourselves in the spa, treatments are a major must. The whole team are lovely and... More

I booked a 2 night spa package for my Girlfriend for her birthday. All I can say is, perfect. Great massage, great service, lovely rooms and the food, well, it was perfect and indulgent. The library had a bookcase that opened up to be the bar (hidden) and everything about this place was great. Expensive, but to be expected. If... More

First, everything was nicely resolved. With that introduction….our introduction to the hotel got off on the wrong foot. While the reception was very nice, we discovered a few glitches with the bathroom. One ceiling light was out and another one about to go out. The heated towel rack didn’t work and water was leaking from under the sink onto the... More

When you drive up it is like a Fairy tale. Just what you would expect. Inside nice stair way heading up both sides of the entrance to reception. Met by a very pleasant cheery kilted young man with a spring in his step. Took our bags and us up to our room, room 3. Inside massive four poster bed double... More
