      location location location,lovely setting and great features,falconary,spa,walks etc

      Food menu little limited and expensive,lots of other local eating places are very good with more reasonable pricing.

      Room had real 'castle' feel, great in-room amenities. Library bar .

      Nothing major, but the info on the restaurants was not very clear, i.e. what was included in the prix fix menu for the more expensive and atmospheric Dungeon restaurant.Couldn't find this info in our room and when we wanted to see the menus we couldn't find anyone at the restaurant.

      Excellent castle themed bedroom suite and a wonderful adventure to sleep in a castle.

    • Single

      Location - close enough for Edinburgh for shopping & tourism but in the Countryside so quiet and relaxing and away from the bussle of city life and noise. Food excellent bit pricey but good choice. Staff friendly, welcoming and helpful. Facilities excellent and if you have dogs they are welcome - didn't bring mine though.

      Creeking stairscase and no lifts - glad was not on top floor. Driveway from main road in need of a serious upgrade - resurfacing required. Bit pricey - two nights just the limit, any longer and would be V.expensive with meals and drinks on top not forgetting the spa treatments....

      Got upgraded to a theme room , wow, just spectacular . Location was beautiful. Touring for six weeks , our stay at Dalhousie was definetly one of the highlights. The staff were just lovely ,we absolutely loved it !

      The Dungeon Dinner was truly a delight. The varied courses and presentation were wonderful.

      The price was high for the room and dinner. Some soft music (maybe chamber music?/or gregorian chants -- would have been nice) instead of such quiet during the meal. The outside of the Castle looks great, but the inside needs some refurbishment, and if you were blindfolded going in, you would not really know you were inside a castle,, There is some expectation that the rooms would have more of a Castle (stone?) flair. The carpeting had seen better days.

      We absolutely loved our stay at Dalhousie Castle. I put a request on the booking for a nice room (although I could only afford to book a standard castle room, but we got upgraded to one of the suites which was amazing. The staff were really friendly and helpful too.
