Dear Guest, It was very kind of you to post such a supportive review of your most recent visit to Stobo. Lounging around in a bathrobe all day marks the difference between staying at a destination spa as opposed to a hotel with spa facilities bolted on. Your continued custom is hugely appreciated. With kind regards, More

My friends and I have just had the pleasure of staying at Stobo Castle and sampling the total luxury of the place. We were welcomed on our arrival by really friendly reception staff who explained where our room was and times for dinner, breakfast and lunch. A porter took our cases to our room which was wonderful as I had... More

Absolutely brilliant experience! My husband booked stobo as a surprise for my 30th and it more than exceeded our already high expectations. The staff are brilliant, polie, helpful and friendly. The pool, hot tubs etc are fantastic and everywhere is very clean and well presented. Staff were constant cleaning up and making sure everywhere was presentable. We have stayed in... More

Have been a few times over past 30 yrs and have watched the changes evolve. We loved the intimacy of the old Spa where you were weighed and had your blood pressure taken on arrival! Given advice about healthy eating etc. Now it is much more of the moment and we loved the improvements. The Sauna is beautiful. Looking out... More

Dear Guest, Many thanks for reflecting so positively about all the improvements we have made over the past 30 years! The evolvement of the business from austere 'health farm' to modern-day 'destination spa' has been quite a journey - made all the more enjoyable by the continued support of our past guests over the years. I do hope we will... More

5th Trip here and yet again had a fabulous time, everything about Stobo is excellent. This was the 1st time we got to use the outside hot tubs absolute bliss. We stayed in the Castle Lodge as we have anytime we have been there, rooms are excellent with everything you need including Molton Brown toiletries (my fav). We changed into... More

This was my 4th trip to this wonderful spa....and again I was not disappointed. From arrival at the reception to departure, the staff are friendly and courteous, no matter their job. We stayed in Castle Lodge...we have done this each time we have been to Stobo. Although this involves a short walk outside to the main building, it is no... More

I am a regular and just love it. The minute you put on your fluffy robe, the stresses of everyday life slip away and you relax into the pampering hands of the Stobo staff. As always, the food was excellent and, as always, I ate too much! The Darphin facial treatment I had with Jayne was amongst the best treatments... More

Dear Guest, Many thanks for your very balanced report, following your latest visit to Stobo. Huge apologies for the rather ill-timed scheduling of your treatments which understandably led to you and your friend feeling rushed - this is certainly something I am looking into whilst writing this response. In closing, your continued vote of confidence is greatly appreciated and we... More

I came here with my mum and my grandma and it was amazing. I first hand a smoothie something light before we went swimming. Everything was clean and top notch! The food was very good as well but it could be better. The spa was amazing and relaxing. The staff were very nice and welcoming. Even though it is expensive... More

Came here with a group of friends. Had heard a lot of good things about it so was expecting a proper lazy pampered weekend. And that's exactly what we got. Can't praise the place high enough. It is expensive but worth it. Fab food, beautiful rooms (spotlessly clean), great treatments and spoilt for choice with all the amenities. Couldn't believe... More

If youre looking for a relaxing and professional spa - do not go to Stobo. Its the Tesco version of a Spa. At nearly 300 pounds for the privilege of 1 day there not only did I have to 'make do' with their leftover treatments, on arrival I was greeted by an obviously disinterested girl squeezing out a hello like...
