Stayed in room 17! Themed four poster room Robert the Bruce room! Possibly the best hotel room I've had, it just had something old, Scottish about it! I loved the room, this room for me was better than the one I stayed in at Cameron house! Something quite hunting about the whole hotel, great hotel, was really impressed! However here's...

I took my mother for Afternoon Tea on 4th February, amazing! We've both been for many Afternoon Teas & up until now Turquoise Thistle in York Place was by far the best choice over any of the large Edinburgh hotels, but now Dalhousie Castle is at the top of the tree! Beautiful setting, staff great (more senior staff member in...

Much better visit this time. We even got a full 30 min treatment. And the showers worked without overflowing or having someone else's dirty hair and scum floating around. And. Tada the spa pool was warm. This trip was a replacement for the last twice we had been. As both times the boiler was broken and the spa pool was...

We arrived very early on Saturday morning as we were in Edinburgh for the six nations. The receptionist checked if we could check in however as it was so early this wasn't possible they were able to keep our bags and said they were able to call us when the room was ready (we didn't take advantage of this as...

Dalhousie Castle is a beautiful 12th Century building oozing with charm and mystery. The biggest mystery however is why anyone would go back again after staying once! I've just returned from a one night stay that did little to inspire or relax me but most importantly, I'm still hungry! When we arrived the welcome was severely lacking. There was no...

I'd really like to give this hotel a 3.5 rating but as this is not possible, on balance have given it 4 stars Check in was easy & the receptionist was polite but the only information we were given about the hotel was that breakfast times were on our card . We had to ask the whereabouts of the various...

Bought my wife an itison voucher for 2 hours in the Spa, a 50 min treatment each, and afternoon tea. Overall I thought it was an excellent visit. I've been to better equipped spa's but thought this was perfect for a couple of hours. It's not the biggest but what is there is fresh, clean, modern and with a good...

Only been here a couple of hours. Went to the bar. Sorry there is no bar. There is a room where you sit and some person who looks at you like you dont belong there gives you a list of drinks. No draft beer at all! £4.60 for a 330ml bottle of pale ale. Not a good start. Two choices...
