Excellent place where you can relax and energise yourself. There is a big variety of treatments to choose from. I had reflexology and hot stone massage. Highly recommend both and can't wait to visit again.

Just back from my tenth stay at Stobo, with my sister, having first visited over 25 years ago. The level of service continues to be fantastic - from reception and spa staff, to restaurant and housekeeping - all made our stay special. Even the grounds man, who, passing through the hot tub area who saw me struggling to work the...

Is it possible to have holiday blues from 2 nights away somewhere? Absolutely if you stay here. Our 2nd 2 night stay and nothing has changed (apart from the fairy lights at the hot tubs). Outstanding service from receptionists to waiters (shout out to the older gentleman who always keeps the water topped up), and Jamie for the cocktails. Polite,...

I come here at least once or twice a year for a overnight stay and I'm never disappointed. The Spa is amazing. So relaxing and peaceful. The food is lovely. Very good value for dinner, breakfast and lunch included in the price.

Have been to Stobo several times now but always as a day visitor so cannot comment on accommodation and meals other than the lunch with the package. Have never been disappointed in anything, whether it be the food, treatments or the whole place itself. This time the treatments arranged for my grand-daughter and I were not at the times and...

My wife and myself recently stayed for an overnight at the castle. We had a nice stay. Food and surroundings were lovely. Though spa was very busy and not very relaxing. The spa area was also poorly organised and only after arriving at the spa were we told that we required our dressing gowns so had to return to our...

Good points - beautiful grounds, gardens, waterfall, surroundings and walks. Lovely spa facilities. My full body massage was fantastic . Spa is very nice and clean but a little impersonal. The dinner dining staff were pleasant and friendly. We enjoyed the breakfast choices although it was a heated buffet style so a little drier than breakfast should normally be. It...
