On a recent stay with a good friend we found that the relaxation start right from the front door. The staff are just so natural and lovely, they care for your every need. We stayed in the Castle Lodge this time which was really impressive and up to the usual Stobo standards. The room was very spacious, large double beds... More

Dear Guest, I really cannot thank you enough for commenting so favourably on your recent visit to Stobo. Especially, in respect of the care and attention you and your friend received from our staff. Mother Teresa keeps promising to publish a book of her recipes - maybe, an online petition from all our past guests will do the trick! With... More

Don't worry this is not a slagging off review per se but there were a couple of things that you should be aware of. Don't book into the lodges that are separate from the main house. They are tiny and very basic. We decided when we went in that we couldn't possible sleep in there but the wonderful Elanor in... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review, following your recent visit to Stobo. I hope you didn't feel too intimidated being the only male resident - numbers do fluctuate but we have seen a remarkable growth in couples wishing to spend quality time together. In closing, I was delighted to learn that we managed to upgrade you to a deluxe... More

This review is solely for the food. I love Stobo Castle (usually a real treat and the staff are lovely), but having stayed there again I have to say that the food wasn't great. The lamb, pork and steak were overcooked and not as we had requested, and the broccoli and green beans could only be described as 'warmed-up raw'... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comments, following your visit to Stobo last weekend. I'm so sorry you felt some of our dishes were overcooked - lamb, venison and duck are served "pink" for tenderness - pork, for obvious reasons, needs to be more thoroughly cooked and steak is prepared to order. We do strive for perfection and I just... More

Dear Mr Winyard Reading back on the reviews on here from the last 4 weeks, I furiously wonder, what is wrong with people? Do people have nothing better to do than to find fault, criticise and moan? And people who do have a genuine complaint, speak to someone at the time and sort it out for gods sake! It makes... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your incredibly supportive review, following your latest visit to Stobo. I'm probably the exception to the rule in the hospitality industry, but I'm actually quite a fan of Tripadvisor - it does provide a forum for guests to express an opinion of their experience - the only proviso is that reviews should be fair, accurate...

Went with my two daughters. Had booked the Seymour suite in the main castle. This allows for three people to share. Two double beds and a day bed. The room was individually decorated with character. There is a small dressing room which is very well designed for its use. The bathroom is spacious and has separate shower and bath cubicles.... More

Dear Guest, Many thanks for commenting so favourably on your visit to Stobo with your two daughters. With two windows over the front and one window over the lake, the Seymour suite probably affords the best views of all our rooms. Thank you also for mentioning our staff - they really do go the extra mile to ensure the comfort... More

This was my second visit to Stobo. I went with 3 friends and stayed in one of the suites with a balcony it was absolutely beautiful. The first thing you notice when you walk through those magnificent doors is the quiet tranquility of it, even when the girls at reception are busy there is no rush they process your requirements...

I came with my boyfriend on the 14th of June. When we arrived the lady was very blunt. Not a smile was cracked. We were staying in the lodges which was a small walk away, no offer of help with bags dispite a porter standing there. We got to the room, how this can we advertised of 5* I'll never... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review, following your overnight stay in Castle Lodge last Saturday. In fairness, I think you will find that every establishment requires a window of opportunity to service guest bedrooms. The suggested times of arrival and vacating your room are for guidance only - for example, if guests arrive at 2pm, we'll be delighted to... More

The setting is lovely, the rooms are very nice, the food is decent. The welcome was warm and set high expectations for our stay. Unfortunately, it did not quite live up. The spa facilities and quality of "treatments" is not up to the standard we have experienced at places in both Edinburgh and Glasgow. The level of service was somewhat... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for commenting on your stay in a deluxe room at Stobo earlier this month. Value for money is always going to be a subjective issue - you only have to scroll down to the review headed "Piece of Heaven" where the author states that Stobo represents great value, with all meals included within our terms along...
