Great Castle experience!

Posted 22-Jun-2015
Location: A day in Edinburgh city center/old town. Falconry on the grounds - several types of raptors as well as Owls. Golf nearby.
Staff is great. Setting and grounds are spectacular. We stayed in themed 4 poster bedrooms (2 couples). Fantastic evening started with the Library - every wall covered with bookshelves of very old books. Great reading. Full bar with great service and nice wine list. Your dungeon dinner order is taken in the library and you are called to dinner after a nice relaxing time. The dungeon restaurant food and service was impeccable. I suggest some soft music be piped in to add to the atmosphere and soften the stone wall acoustics. There is no elevator and the main staircase and others floors do creak a bit but that just adds to the experience. The beds and bathrooms are very UK/Euro but more than adequate. Our bed was great but the other couple said not so much. We would definitely recommend Dalhousie! You can't go to Scotland without staying in a Castle and this is the one.

Wonderful staff, amazing food

The staff at Dalhousie seemed to go above and beyond to ensure we had a pleasant stay. I was thrilled with the customer service. The food at the hotel, between the Dungeon Restaurant and the Orangery, was fantastic.

Everyone was so friendly especially Liam who provided us with lots of idesa of where to eat and do, we did everything he worte down for us and had an awesome time. Every recommendation was spot on and just what we were looking for, amazing since he only met us for a short time prior to making the recommendations. We loved Scotland and all of the people were awesome, we will return. We nevery got to thank Liam, I hope this gets back to him!

Location: The park is great; Edinburgh is not very far away.
The castle is in a charming park, perfect for resting and relaxing for a couple of days. The castle itself is really impressive, and in very good condition.

Nice theme and location, BUT...

Posted 01-Apr-2015
For that price, we were expecting better rooms in terms of cleanliness and glow. The room had some mould behind the window shutter but this was rectified and cleaned. However the paint had come off and the mould had already done the damage. We stayed in the room because the alternative we got offered was a downgrade. The chair in the room had a burn mark and the arms were ripped. Also, the frames were dusty (pictures, doors, top of 4 post bed) The Spa was disappointing (no sauna or swimming pool) and the treatments were over priced. It's a shame really, for that price per night we expected top notch. Staff were friendly and helpful but as soon as we told them we booked it through Expedia when we got asked for feedback at check out, we felt that their tone changed.

Extremely dissapointing

Posted 18-Feb-2015
Pros: The grounds and location were lovely, Breakfast was very good.
Cons: Communication between expedia and the hotel. Also the reception said they would contact me regarding the room issue and didnt
On arrival i was given a luke warm reception then left to wander around looking for my room,there was a wedding on so there were people everywhere and i couldnt even get parked close to the reception. When i found my room it was very small,the radiator cover was hanging off the wall,there were dirty marks on the carpet and it was not the room i paid £400 for. I went back to reception and they agreed it was not the room i had booked but they had no themed suits available and they said they dont rent out themed suits so expedia should never have booked it and it was down to expedia as they never told the hotel they had bboked a themed suit for me. I took my fiancee away for a relaxing break and left feeling ripped off and had a really bitter taste in my mouth from the whole experience, I would like to think i am entitled to some kind of refund ?????

Disappointed

Posted 05-Jan-2015 on Hotels
We got married at Dalhousie castle 3 years ago so went back to relive the magic!! We had a lovely time but unfortunately the service at the hotel left a little to desired... We had to wait uncomfortable amounts of time for everything - drinks, a pre booked afternoon tea, over an hour for our pre booked dinner reservation etc etc. also the bed was just ridiculously old and uncomfortable, they had no toothpaste in room keeping and the staff seemed generally done in and unhappy. a very different place from the one we got married in.

Idealic hotel in idealic location

Posted 09-Dec-2014
Cons: Wifi a bit patchy
Location: Handy for Musselburgh races and Edinburgh.
Where to start? Friendly and courteous staff. A setting which leaves your jaw dropping. Very comfy room and bed. The fastest filling bath I've encountered. Food which surpasses offerings from top restaurants. A gem of a place.

Experiência única

Posted 29-Nov-2014
Pros: Atmosfera e atenção da equipe.
Ficar hospedado em um castelo é uma experiência incrível. Principalmente quando esse castelo é rondado por histórias paranormais!! O hotel em si já é muito legal! O quarto espaçoso e bem decorado. Os restaurantes muito bons. Jantar no restaurante Dungeon é uma experiência arquitetônica e gastronômica. O hotel oferece um tour para falar dos "fantasmas" e ainda um show com falcões.
