Wonderful stay at a gorgeous castle.

Posted 29-Sep-2016
Dalhousie Castle is the ideal place if you're looking to stay in a castle in the Edinburgh area. It's about a 20 minute taxi ride from the city center which is just far enough to be out in the peaceful Scottish countryside. The castle itself is absolutely beautiful, and sits on grounds that are equally so, with archery, falconry, and several great walking paths. The staff at the hotel were extremely nice and accommodating - we were even greeted by a nice gentleman in full Scottish garb who gave us a brief history of the castle. The castle and grounds are very quiet and peaceful - fantastic for relaxing with a good book. The food was absolutely spectacular, from the home-baked pastries that came with breakfast to the truly magnificent three course meal you can get through the Dungeon Restaurant, which I highly recommend. Overall an amazing experience with my only regret being that we did not stay longer.

Beautiful landscape, minimal room, expensive food

Posted 22-Sep-2016
We were disappointed that the castle hotel offered no activities. All activities including the tour of the castle required hiring a tour company. Any food (room service or resteraunt) was a minimum of 24€. No one answered phone most of the time.

Wonderful castle experience - service not so much

Posted 11-Sep-2016
Cons: Check-in and check-out service level was poor. Lunch/Dinner service in the Orangery was very poor.
My wife and I spent (1) night here during our Ireland trip. The castle and grounds were wonderful. The falconry and owls were beautiful and we really enjoyed walking the grounds and trails and taking many pictures. We stayed in the Castle Rocks Suite and although a tight squeeze to get our car over the bridge, it was well worth it to have the largess of this suite all to ourselves. We did not eat in the Dungeon Restaurant but did eat lunch and dinner in the Orangery Restaurant. We enjoyed the spa for the jacuzzi.

Castle no Castle

Posted 10-Sep-2016
Pros: Great Hotel and location stayed there before.
Cons: I did try to verify, could not reach the Castle.
Location: TATTOO
I booked the Castle as a 10th anniversary surprise for my wife and I, only to find out that I was not in the Castle but in a third floor unit "no elevator" on the property. I stayed in the Castle ounce before that is why I requested the property. I'm asking for a credit to be used at another time and a customer profile to avoid this kind of mixup. I cannot even try to move my wife up any length of stairs.

Queen of the Dalhousie Castle

Posted 09-Sep-2016 on Orbitz
Beautifully decorated Rooms, good food, Variety of activities, exquisite rooms throughout castle for eating, reading, gatherings/weddings, meetings/special events, etc. Lots of stairs, no elevator. My room nicely located & great view of garden. I Had BIG a issue with my bill, however, & need YOUR help to resolve ASAP! They said Expedia handled my reservation & billed it on Master Card (I don't have Master Card) for the wrong amount. I told them I booked with Orbits for a much lesser amount (I have email with correct amount). PLEASE HELP correct this huge billing error. Thanks.

The castle is awesome. The people are awesome. The available activities were good. Food a little pricey. But Dalhousie is an amazing place.

Dalhousie Castle Hotel & Spa

Stayed here for one night on business and found it okay. A difficult hotel to find rooms in. Breakfast was brilliantly cooked - once I found the breakfast room

Very mixed experience

Posted 25-Aug-2016 on Hotels
Beautiful property. Welcoming front desk staff but all other staff strangely absent. Tried contacting spa, bell person, front desk, housekeeping, and another service number during our stay and literally never received anything other than a recorded message from the Falconry. The restaurant is lovely, physically, as is the library bar. Food was of a high quality. Unfortunately, there was a strange rushed feeling in both locations. Everything about the setting seems to suggest fine dining, yet in the execution, the guest is rushed from the library to the restaurant and then through each course. Lovely breakfast. Gorgeous property, it's a shame there are deficits in the execution.
