True storybook, castle wedding. Location and grounds were idyllic. Ramsey bedroom was stunning, however there were cobwebs that needed dealt with in some of the upper corners. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. There were some service issues when they did not have a full complement of staff, however that did not impact our stay. Services for the wedding were...

Our son recently got married at Dalhousie Castle. The staff and the rooms were so beautiful! Some smaller than others. Some darker than others. Some brighter. Some quite large. All different. Room 14 and 5 very bright with large four poster bed and big windows. Though, Room 12, Sir Oliver Cromwell's room, definitely haunted, dark, no views, and I heard...

we had a little snafu at checking in (we arrived close to midnight, and the receptionist cannot find our reservations that we booked through Kayak). But they were nice enough to let us check in to a room in the basement. The next day they found our reservation and put us up in a very nice room on the top...

A friend and I stayed in April 2015. We had a great room and took advantage of the falconry, which was incredible, and the dungeon dinner, which was delicious. We had a problem with our toilet that would not stop running, we had to call down several times to have them come fix it. They were very prompt in their...

Beautiful room and location. Loved the falconry. Excellent food at lunch and dinner although service speed was average. Friendly staff. Would return. Lovely pre-dinner drinks in library. My son loved the armour.

We booked this place for my husband's birthday. Stayed in the Sir Walter Scott room. It was wonderful. Very well appointed. The best part is the library. Sitting there with Dickens, Pickwick Papers in one hand and a single malt scotch in the other. Come on, what can beat that?? Our waiter in the library, think his name was Sandobol,...

I am a ghost hunter. My husband and I booked at this castle because we had read on the internet that it was in the top 10 in Scotland as being haunted. At this point in our trip, this would have been our 6th castle stay ... in which 3 castles prior were very haunted. We arrived on May 22,...

I was so excited to stay in a true historical castle. We don't get these at home in Canada. It was my husband's 50th birthday and I really wanted him to have a fantastic and memorable day.
