book it!

Outstanding service and amazing food make this a perfect location if your looking to treat yourself, the views and onsite falconry add to the castles appeal. The spa is a nice bonus and is free to use. It was our honeymoon and we wouldn't have changed a thing!

Overpriced, poor service

Posted 02-Aug-2015
Pros: Period character
Cons: accuracy of booking rooms, poor restaurant food and service, process of room service order accuracy, size of rooms (perhaps combine 2 together)
Location: With no car, we could not go far. It is not convenient to a town, village, or public transport
Upon arrival, our 2 rooms were booked for three people each, but could only hold 2 with no room for roll aways. After revisiting the front desk, changes were made, but inconvenient. The rooms were very small. We ate in the hotel dining room, but had very poor meals and a wait of over 60 minutes for food. Minimal price adjustments were made, but not sufficient. An early morning room service breakfast was ordered, but not delivered, so the airport trip was made on an empty stomach.

Home for our visit!

Posted 20-Jul-2015
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing to improve upon exactly, just know when you are traveling that it s a facility used for weddings and there s lots of celebrating going on :)
Location: Within an hour in every direction there are castles and places to see and experience! If you are a golfer, St. Andrews is about 40 minutes out!
We stayed in the 'Castle Rock Suites' or they may call it the 'Lodge'. Beautiful and serine our stay was the best with wonderful service and food. Everyone was wonderful and went out of their way to insure our stay was the best ever. We also stayed one night in the castle so we could experence all that Dalhousie had to offer and other than the stairs (lol just getting old) our room had charm and would consider more of the perod with the four poster bed and details. Best vacation ever!

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.
