Went with three friends for one night in September. We all have small children so it was a lovely relaxing break.
We booked standard rooms which were lovely. We had booked quite late so we didn't have rooms together - one was on the first floor with an amazing view, the other on the lower ground (no view). The rooms were nicely decorated and comfortable.
The food was good, the spa just wonderful and the treatments very relaxing.
Only one negative point was that check-out was 12 but our last treatment had been scheduled for 12 so were were worried about how to juggle getting changed etc. We mentioned this to the receptionist and she said she would arrange for a late check-in for 1pm. It would have been nice to have been offered this as a matter of course on checking-in to save us worrying. On retuning from my treatment at 12.45, my room keycard no longer worked and I had to go back to reception in my dressing gown to sort it out.
All-in-all, the only downside about Stobo was having to leave. We'd definitely like to go back for longer next time!
