We visited Dalhousie Castle for an overnight stay for our friends wedding! Outstanding from start to finish. We paid a discounted rate and stayed in the 'Castle Rocks' rooms a 5 minute walk from the castle! So glad we did the room was out of this world and a fraction of the price compared to what some of our friends... More

We stayed here because we have always wanted to stay the night in a real castle and this one seemed to be the least hotel-esk that we could find in Scotland. We stayed in the well guard room, which they list as some other name, and it was pretty cool, but not $650 / night cool. The only authentic part... More

Dalhousie castle is an old 13th Century castle that has been turned into a hotel. It has stately grounds and a falconry. A grand foyer greets you, and the reception is just under and beyond the staircase. Check in was professional, and lacking in heart. Guests in the castle carried bags up the creaky stairs to their rooms themselves. We... More

Dalhousie castle is a beautiful place to spend a long weekend. Close enough to Edinburgh for a day out(we used the park and ride). Unfortunately the weather in Edinburgh was typically Scottish. The staff at Dalhousie are really friendly and knowledgeable of the surrounding areas the head waiter even told us of things to do in Edinburgh. The food in... More

Well what can I say that hasn't been said already. Beautiful castle, amazing grounds, nice bed, squeaky stairs, lots of stairs (it is an old castle so if you expect otherwise, look elsewhere!), tasty food, service both good and average, spa small but massage good. We were meant to go watch The Foo Fighters in Edinburgh, but they cancelled due... More

I booked this for Valentines Day, hotel looks very grand on arrival, check in was easy. The rooms are dated and not really all that. We ate in the restaurant not the dungeon, and it's was also very good.

Had booked a spa day as part of a hen do. The spa facilities are very small - it felt crowded with only 7 of us in. The whole experience lacked the extra attention to detail you would expect from a luxury spa - no different to my local gym. The afternoon tea was a let down with very slow... More

Booked a midweek treat with my partner, having chosen Dalhousie because we had great memories from a previous visit some years ago and wanted to re-live the experience. This is an amazing venue, and the room we stayed in (Castle Rocks Suite) was fab - the food in the Dungeon Restaurant was also delicious, so full marks to the chef.... More

My daughter and I stayed for an overnight spa break (a birthday gift) and whilst we did enjoy our stay there were several service related issues which let the place down. First the positive points. It is without doubt a spectacular venue, and the internal decor is very much in keeping with the castle ambiance. Our room was on the... More
