Stayed here using a voucher deal. On arrival and check in the receptionist was on the phone giving prices to what I assume was a potential customer, so we waited a few minutes. She then noticed we had arrived and ended the phone call "Someone has just arrived so can you phone back later" Im would doubt they did! We... More

This is an amazing venue castle has been well restored we had a beautiful room but the plumbing was a bit challenging. Its a bit difficult to get around not very clear and would not be very suitable if you had mobility problems. Food was superb but sadly some of the staff could do with some service to customer training.

We got married in Dalhousie Castle in 2010 so this was our first time back since then. I bought an Itison voucher for my husband for his Christmas as I have always wanted to go back but sadly it's normally too expensive. The voucher included bed, breakfast, a two course evening meal in the Orangery, a bottle of wine and... More

Just returned from an overnight stay at Dalhousie Castle hotel. Cannot praise the hotel highly enough. From the minute we checked in until we checked out, everything was first class. We stayed in room 2 with a lovely view over the grounds towards the Falconry area. The room was spotless, with tea & coffee plus shortbread provided, There was also... More

We attended a wedding at Dalhousie on 7th March and this included an overnight stay. The wedding was conducted in their in-house chapel and although a little cramped it was conducted in a very friendly ambience, the highlight being the entry of the bridal couples' rings via a Barn Owl and this seems to be the norm, unless anyone has...

We booked a deal through Itison (dinner, bed, breakfast and a bottle of wine) and upgraded to a four poster room in advance of our stay. Our deal included dinner in the Orangery (conservatory) restaurant, but after a quick exploration of the building on arrival we decided to upgrade to the atmospheric Dungeon restaurant, which the staff were happy to...

Throughly enjoyed our stay, food was excellent and room was perfect but service was average, hearing barman Kyle curse on numerous occasions was rather unprofessional. But a fantastic place to stay and would most definitely visit again, thank you to all staff.

We stayed at Dalhousie Castle on 1 March on a DBB deal from Itison. The hotel has enormous potential but unfortunately didn't live up to expectations and we felt that it was not good value even on a deal, so thank heavens we didn't pay the rack rate. The story of our stay: Arrived late afternoon. Told that "something" in... More
