Spotlessly clean and lovely bathroom with molten brown goodies. Food was very good, ample portions and tasty and nutritious. Good presentation and something's for everyone. Treatments were very good.

I visited Stobo with my mum in May to celebrate her birthday. This was our second visit, and unfortunately I wasn't as impressed as I was initially. The drive into Stobo is breathtaking and you instantly feel relaxed at the sight of the castle. Our room was bright and airy on the first floor and was very comfortable with 2... More

I had three therapies whilst there and the therapists were polite, professional and the treatments were exactly as described and very relaxing, i felt quite pampered! Since the grounds were so...

Of course the location is lovely but there are many spa hotels in Scotland, in beautiful surroundings. This was my second visit and this time I took my two daughters, as a treat. Our overall impression of the staff, surroundings, food, ambiance and treatments, was not that good. I won't go into too much detail on this review but sufficie... More

This is a bit of an odd review as although I can't really fault this hotel massively, I can't give it 5 stars. It just doesn't feel as special as somewhere like Cameron House. Lowdown... - Location - unless you live nearby, it's a bit of a pain to get to (certainly from the south) but the castle is imposingly... More
