Stayed here for 2 nights to attend my friends wedding. Booked the accommodation 2 years ago and was told only 1 night been booked in and can't do anything about it. No compensation was provided. The next day at check out we spoke to the general manager who gave us a room immediately. Had no idea why the reception couldn't... More

We stayed for two nights and had our wedding at Dalhousie on August 1st. The entire experience was amazing. Having read some of the mixed reviews here we were a bit concerned but those concerns disappeared upon our arrival. The staff was friendly and helpful, the castle and ground were spectacular and the overall experience was excellent. If I could... More

I had a one night stay here, booked at last minute through Expedia so got a really good price. What a wonderful setting; only issue was walking up 4 flights of stairs to my room at the top but it was worth it. Great view over the ramparts, lovely big room and bed, nice sofa in front of TV; no... More

The castle is lovely, atmospheric and beautifully restored. We stayed for one night to celebrate our wedding anniversary and before our celebratory meal enjoyed walking in the grounds and watching other guests have the falconry experience which looked like quite a magical thing to do. We had a themed four poster, nicely appointed, comfortable. But to get to the castle... More

Loved staying here, this was a treat during a month long holiday and a treat it was. Just beautiful, the whole stay was lovely. Our room was beautiful, breakfast delicious and the dinner in 'The Dungeon' was absolutely incredible. The service and staff are second to none. It was a really lovely stay and I would recommend it as a... More

Spent one evening here and would never go back! Customer service is shocking. Was spoken to like dirt by general manager. When we tried to complain about him, customer relations claimed he was loved by all and now won't take our calls. A lovely historic building, greatly let down by such poor customer service. Would advise all to avoid!

I never got round to writing a review last year; however, despite a few correspondence delays which gave us a bit of concern our wedding day went like clockwork, the staff were very good and the food excellent. The whole day was faultless and after months of searching for the right venue in the end we know we made the... More

A wedding venue that pays attention to detail to provide an all-round first class experience for the guests as well as the bridal party The food is worthy of particular mention as it so easy to do this badly for a party of 100+ guests - but this was well presented and delicious food. The resident piper (Andrew) made it... More

We managed to get an amazing deal to stay here on booking dot com. The rooms were not in the castle but a nearby lodge. The castle itself is stunning. The service was good. Breakfast was fabulous. Best one of our trip. Would definitely recommend here, especially if you can get a great deal like we did. We went into... More

Such a grand and beautiful first impression - then it all went wrong! Poor service on arrival; staff too busy chatting with each other to notice a guest followed by the lack of room service possible because I'd been given a room in the lodge! Dinner was nice but overpriced for basic standard food and service. I would have thought... More
