Comfortable hotel in beautiful grounds

Posted 06-Sep-2014
Pros: The setting is beautiful and the staff are extremely helpful and welcoming. I was particularly impressed with the bed and the luxurious bedding.
Cons: The furniture in our bedroom was a tad shabby eg. the drawer in one of the units on opening, came right out and landed on my toes!
Location: As we were there for a wedding, we didn't venture far from base.
We spent 2 nights here as we were guests at a wedding taking place at the venue.

Luxury

Booked hotel via Expedia when heading to Edinburgh for the Military Tattoo. Fantastic from start to finish. Only 1 night there which was only problem - would loved to have stayed longer to experience more of the hotel.

Beautiful castle, excellent breakfast.

Posted 04-Aug-2014
Cons: Hotel did not have a record of our booking, apparently because Expedia did not send them any details of my booking. The staff sorted this out well.
Set in gorgeous grounds, this is a genuinely awesome castle.

A real castle experience.

Posted 21-Jun-2014
Pros: What's really nice is the hotel has not tried to add new function rooms to a old building. It can only handle a small number but does it so well.
Cons: Couple of defect in the room but only minor, very clean and a great experience being in a real castle.
Food was fantastic, above what we expected. The menu was not massive but the quality was the business. 5 star quality food even at breakfast time.

Fun experience

Posted 25-May-2014 on Hotels.com
The Dalhousie Castle was a real treat for a night. It was more expensive than our other hotel stays but with the reputation of possibly being haunted, it was fun. Our wallpaper and some of the furniture was a bit 'tattered and worn but it added to the "ambience". People were friendly and helpful. They even let us view a wedding from the balcony. On the negative side was dinner at the Dungeon. Great room but food was expensive and very little of it. Over all our stay at the Dalhousie Castle was an unforgettable experience. P.S Lots of stairs to climb, beware!

A Castle Like no other

Posted 01-Apr-2014
Location: Falconry, Walking Trails (Get Wellies from front desk), Dinner in the dungeon.
Wonderful Grounds - ask Peter - Staff 'Porter' for one of his famous tours if he's working of course. Run of the whole place, doors are locked in the evening with one porter working. Makes you feel like your right back in the 14th century, 4 poster beds, creaks and cracks - Historical paintings, library with a roaring fire... enjoy.

Nice & Pleasing

Posted 01-Feb-2014
Cons: perhaps an outside shelter for smokers as it was raining and didn't feel comfortable standing at main entrance.
Would like to experience this standard of tranquillity and serene surrounding again. Would especially recommend trying the spa facilities even though the Sauna was out of order on the day but the hydro pool and varied showers tropical and mist; Ottoman Turkish steam room and the very relaxing conservatory over looking the views. There is plenty to appreciate at Dalhousie castle, the history incorporated into the Dungeons Restaurant is most endearing and found staff to be very pleasant. The choice of bedrooms is very well thought out and I'd Love to Upgrade to their Eloquent choice of rooms.

A stunning castle hotel with character and charm

Posted 31-Oct-2013 on Hotels.com
Stayed for one night for a wedding - hard to imagine a more amazing venue. Loads of quirky character and charm with fabulous photo opportunities. Rooms very comfortable with the unique features you would hope for from a castle. Hard to find fault - the food was beautiful, staff helpful and a gorgeous setting. Very special.
