For our sixth and final night in Scotland we stayed here. This was where we splurged for accommodations. There was some mix up with our booking as we did it through a booking site and there seemed to be a communication problem but the front desk got the manager involved and solved the issue immediately. And actually upgraded our room... More

Visited Dalhousie Castle Spa on a voucher deal and it was a fantastic place. An old castle which had all its original features. The first hour we had exclusive use of the facilitiies but overall in the end there were 6 of us using the facilities. The spa comprised of a hydrotherapy pool which had a metal body contoured bed...

We decided to treat ourselves to an evening meal in the Dungeon. We were very disappointed. 2 course meal was £85 for Two not including any drinks.The quality and quantity WAS NOT value... More

I loved my stay here...from the drive up to it (not hard to find but a bit of track) gravel parking area...lots of space. Grand first impressions. This MADE my stay. Loved every minute. Room was great...nice stone exposed walls etc. Lovely writing deck which was nice to sip the complimentary whisky and jot down a few thoughts with a... More

We had a great stay at Dalhousie Castle. The room was beautiful with a stunning view,and it was very quiet despite the castle hosting a wedding. We had dinner in the Dungeon restaurant, and the food was simply amazing. Breakfast the next morning was again very good, with a beautiful view from the Orangery. There were a few things that...

It was my 60th birthday and I arranged for 9 of my family to have a meal in the dungeon restaurant and also booked rooms to stay overnight. Let me just say the whole stay was just FANTASTIC. Please remember you are staying in an old castle and that things do go wrong. If I wanted to be picky, I... More

Arrived in Scotland and were really excited about staying in a haunted castle. It's far from cheap but we wanted to enjoy a "different" kind of hotel while travelling throughout the area. We booked dinner in "The Dungeon" (delicious and loved having drinks in the library before dinner). Now, here's where it lost some credibility with me-we were 2 couples... More

Okay, on arrival we were given instructions to our lodge room by a very kind gentleman , okay so we get to our room and the room appeared lovely , even though the lodge... More
