If you expect modern plumbing and modern finishes then go elsewhere. The Dalmunzie House Hotel has plenty of old-world elegance with a touch of rumpled Scottish charm. My wife and I booked the Birkmyre Tower Room for 2 nights in August 2012 as a celebration of our first wedding anniversary.
Let me start by saying the staff is first-rate; they treated us like royalty during our entire stay. The first night we had the whole place to ourselves so they set our dinner up in the smoking room - candles, fire, dim lights, superb dinner, and great wine. We had such a wonderful experience that we changed our dinner plans for the second evening so as to eat at the hotel again. The next day was a wash-out so we just hung around the hotel reading in front of the fire, napping, drinking tea and eating scones (more on the scones later); my wife was in heaven.
The hotel is located in a quiet and secluded glen surrounded by spectacular scenery. Breakfast was the traditional fare but done very well. I have mobility issues and the second floor rooms (including ours) can be accessed by a lift. The Birkmyre room is huge but comfortable.
Some nit picky things - hot water is on a timer so call if you need it during an off time. The plumbing is not new so be gentle. TV's are small or non-existent but who needs one anyway.
Try the scones - they are the best we have ever had!
