Alas this is a late review - I don't think I wanted to admit we were back even almost 2 years on! All that time that's passed hasn't erased a bit of how much we loved this place. First, there's Jude, who is awesome and hilarious and forgiving (we had to come in late and re-arrange days). And then the... More

We stayed at the Retreat for a period of five days. Even before we arrived we knew that we had chosen the right hotel, Jude was so friendly and helpful. Upon arrival nothing was to much trouble, Jude and the answer to all our questions directions to various places of interest. We love the hotel with all its quirky suprises.... More

Beautiful little place, charming rooms. We stayed just one night but will definitely came back next time we are in the area. We booked trough internet and we had a text from Jude giving us directions. The breakfast room is charming and breakfast very good.

If you are looking for the perfect guesthouse then The Retreat Castle is the place to go. We wanted something just outside Edinburgh away from the hustle of the city but close enough with the 31 bus to reach. We were not disappointed. We got a text the day before from Jude giving us directions should we need and information... More

We stayed at the Retreat after spending 3 weeks in B&Bs throughout Scotland. Compared to the many wonderful places we'd stayed, we found the Retreat to be a bit lacking. Jude was very nice, but also very rushed. The room was spacious and nice, but extremely dark. The linens were old and not of a high quality. Breakfast was fine,... More

Stayed here recently for 2 nights whilst attending a family wedding in Scotland. As is was at the same time as the Edinburgh Festival, most places were either very expensive or full. This wasn't the case with The Retreat - VERY competitively priced. The morning of our trip up to Scotland I received a very polite and friendly Text from... More

Some friends and I stayed here the night before my wedding - Jude was very accommodating and the rooms were fantastic. The breakfast was fabulous as well - it was lovely overall. I highly recommend Retreat Castle!
