We had a luxury day package and luxury doesn't quite describe it. Beautiful surroundings add to the relaxing ambiance . Some wonderful treatments by a highly professional team of therapists. Superb facilities and service with exceptional lunch. Every member of staff was friendly and helpful. Not cheap but worth every penny. One day here was completely relaxing.

Although my daughter had been to Stobo a couple of times before, this was my first visit to the spa, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. From the friendly welcome at reception on arrival right through to our lovely buffet lunch, there was very little to find fault with. Relaxing in the outdoor hot tubs with a view of... More

This is my third visit to this wonderful spa hotel this year and I always leave feeling relaxed, invigorated and spoilt! The standard of the food is truly 5* and there is a huge choice of treatment options available. I can hardly wait to get back in the Spring!

Enjoyed a luxury spa day given to me as a gift. Arrived after a horrible and stressful journey due to heavy rain and some very soggy roads, but as soon as I walked through the door it was worth it. I've been a couple of times before but have previously stayed the night so it was a new experience to... More

My boyfriend took me to So Stobo as a birthday treat weekend away. There has clearly been significant investment in the spa area, with a beautiful view from the pool and mixed thermal rooms and three additional thermal rooms (a laconium, aromatic steam room and crystal steam room) for ladies-only. However, Stobo is missing the refinement of service to really... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Stobo. As I mentioned in my response to your boyfriend's review, our night cleaners do access the gentlemen's changing area to collect any used bathrobes and on this occasion, they have wrongly assumed that his items had been left by mistake. Male guests staying in Castle... More

Nice stay, excellent spa, decent food, lovely grounds for walking in. Guests are well looked after. More tailored to women however couples can still enjoy to an extent. Some of the spa facilities were not working fully but noticed a few upgrades elsewhere.

Excellent visit from start to finish. Room in Park lodge was first class. Food was amazing, service from all staff was great. Spa facilities were amazing and had a fantastic hot stone massage to top it all off. Fabulous trip and super chilled out.

I treated my wife and daughter to a spa day at Stobo, and they thoroughly enjoyed it. The facilities are first class, and the treatments they had (back massage and facial massage) were very much enjoyed and appreciated.

3rd visit to Stobo and already thinking of the next. From the minute you walk through the door there is a feeling of calm and relaxation with all stress and tension of everyday life fading away. Wrapped in a cosy dressing gown you feel safe in the hands of the Stobo staff and life slows down. As always the food... More

Visited the spa during a hotel stay, the spa was very clean and well run. Loved all the little extras in the changing rooms very well put together. The treatments I had were great and the therapists were lovely.
