  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

It is a 1200s castle. Bathroom felt modern, comfortable. Just beware there are no elevators so if you have a lot of luggage you will require help

The Castle is beautiful, I stayed in Castle Rocks and the room was beautiful, though there was no phone meaning I couldn't call for the buggy to get back in the rain! The staff were all incredibly friendly and I'd definitely recommend Dalhousie to anyone staying in the area.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The unique thing about the property is that it is an ancient castle but very warm and comfortable. The best thing about the castle is the staff. They are competent, polite and very accommodating. They did an outstanding job at the wedding and made it a memorable occasion for all of us. Their efforts were greatly appreciated.

On arrival it's lovely and reception girl was welcoming and helpful. I was called up prior to arrival to check the twin room was for 2 not 1, I apologised as this was obviously my fault for not seeing it was single occupancy not double. I manage an historic hotel so assumed when they had to charge for extra guest it was for breakfast. No I was charged £50 for a sofa bed and breakfast. The room was clean and nice warm, staff had left
