Just back from an afternoon at Stobo Castle and very happy with the experience. Only booked for the lazy afternoon this morning but managed to get a massage booked too. Stunning grounds, great facilities and wonderful service. I was pleasantly surprised at the price too so hoping to get back for an afternoon once every couple of months!

I wrote a review yesterday after returning from a two night stay at Stobo Castle and I am just amazed at some of the petty complaints I have read on here. I cannot understand why if people are unhappy with the service they receive do they not complain at the time. The staff are all friendly and wish to make... More

We returned after 9 years for another girls retreat and it was wonderful yet again. Great food, service, rooms and treatments. Of particular note is the lovely James, what an absolute gem he is, so lovely and and efficient. I live in Dubai now and felt the standard at Stobo was better and more personal.

I have just returned from a 'Spa' break at Stobo with some family friends. I can only praise the staff for their professionalism and attentiveness during our stay.

Just arrived back from Stobo Castle after a 3 night break. We (3 ladies in 2 rooms) had a lovely time as usual, our rooms were over the spa and were very nice and comfortable. We had a twin room, with the beds being double beds which was nice, as I hate being stuck in a single bed, I always... More

Wonderful treat from my sister and included their signature hot stone massage. I have always a avoided any massages in the past, not my thing. I am now converted though it was fab and Adele my therapist was excellent and ensured I was relaxed and comfortable throughout and that post therapy glow is hard to beat.

I first attended Stobo over 14 years ago, when the swimming pool was tiny and you could hear a pin drop, it felt like the ultimate luxury spa day. I've attended once a year (with a break for a few years) since and my last trip will be my final one. It's never felt like a commercial business until changes... More

Dear Guest, Many thanks for your review, following your recent spa day at Stobo Castle.
