How often do you get to stay in a real castle? That alone made it a great experience. We booked a themed 4 poster bed and were conveniently located on the main floor. Here is a quick pros and cons list from our short stay: Pros: Beautiful Castle Grand grounds and view Awesome traditional Scottish breakfast Nice ensuite Cons "Themed"... More

At last we have been fortunate to visit a hotel that values customer service. My wife and I had booked this venue for our anniversary however due to a bereavement we had to cancel. This was an Itison deal and any rearranged date was likely to fall outwith the deadline however Alana was very understanding and did everything to accommodate... More

We stayed in Dalhousie Castle in May 2016 for my mum's birthday. It is such a lovely place with a lot of character. The staff are lovely and the food in the dungeon was epic! Our room was in the grounds, which is fine but I would definitely like to stay in the castle next time. We had a tour... More

Ok, cheesy reference to a B-movie and yet many might get my point. This place was truly a one-of. I loved being there because the room was comfortable, the staff was warm and the rest of place just made me feel good being there. Inside and outside provided plenty of memories for me. Falconry was a great experience and I... More

My husband and I planned a trip to Scotland and Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and stayed at Dahousie Castle on the actual anniversary date. What an amazing way to celebrate 25 years of marriage. It was a dream come true and the highlight of our trip. The castle was incredibly beautiful, warm and welcoming. We loved walking the... More

They say you're staying in a castle but in fact you may not be. We, for example, thought we were in the castle when in fact at checkin we discovered that we were in fact in a house some 300 meters from the actual castle. The room was ok, but seriously if one wants the castle experience one should get... More

Got married in the castle and a fantastic experience all round experience. Absolute beautiful views and scenery for photographs. Plenty to do and go back regular to visit. Food in the dungeon restaurant is brilliant. Tge castle is absolute beautiful inside and the themed bedrooms are wonderful, but expensive.

This is a lovely place to stay and the setting in the castle is great. The experience would be improved with a bit more attention to detail. Some examples - if eating in the Dungeon restaurant you're required to be in the Library 30 mins beforehand to choose from the menu. We sat there for about 15 mins before we... More

This is a fantastic castle, set amongst rolling green lawns, with a falconry and archery with in the grounds. The castle itself is stunning, pink hued stones, grand entrance stair case, rooms with gorgeous views and lush furnishings. We dined in the more casual of the two restaurants which was still high quality. I am celiac so finding somewhere to... More

We stayed at Dalhousie Castle for our wedding anniversary and we couldn't fault a thing. The service, in general and in the restaurant, was impeccable and the suite was lovely. We had dinner two nights in a row and the staff remembered our preferences from the previous evening, created a vegetarian option off menu for me and wished us a... More
