Felt like I was a King! How can they build so big 500 years ago!

I don't know where to begin, this hotel was amazing!! We had a wonderful dinner in the dungeon restaurant. The library bar was so cool! The Castle room was comfortable and relaxing with the jacuzzi. Breakfast was really great. And best of all, the falconry. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Being in a castle was great, staff was very nice and dinner at the dungeon was very cool.

Everything about Dalhousie is amazing! The castle Itself is a work of art, the grounds & views of the grounds from our room were breathtaking. The food there was equally as good and the staff outdid themselves. Very helpful. If you get the opportunity try the falconry. It was a great and informative experience.

The setting is beautiful with expansive grounds. Remodel has taken the structure of the castle into consideration leaving beautiful stonework exposed and incorporating into private and public areas. Highly recommend

Was looking so forward to staying here and it was a lovely place. Allison treated us so rudely when we were checking in that it made staying there stressful. Orbitz booked us a room that apparently had already been booked long ago, instead of Allison explaining that nicely or with any sympathy she was rude explaining to us that we couldn't have our room that we paid extra for and basically was like oh well you will need to deal with Orbitz to get any kind of refund. I understand that Orbitz messed up but there is a kind and friendly way Allison to explain that to someone not make it worse by being cold, rude and unsympathetic!!!!!!

Beautifully decorated Rooms, good food, Variety of activities, exquisite rooms throughout castle for eating, reading, gatherings/weddings, meetings/special events, etc. Lots of stairs, no elevator. My room nicely located & great view of garden. I Had BIG a issue with my bill, however, & need YOUR help to resolve ASAP! They said Expedia handled my reservation & billed it on Master Card (I don't have Master Card) for the wrong amount. I told them I booked with Orbits for a much lesser amount (I have email with correct amount). PLEASE HELP correct this huge billing error. Thanks.

My husband and I visited Scotland in March 2011 for our honeymoon and wanted the traditional 'castle' experience since Scotland is so well known for it's castles. Dalhousie lived up to our expectations! The room was beautiful - our first room was a standard, but our 2nd night the hotel had rooms free up when a wedding party left and we were upgraded to a themed room at no extra charge. The views from our room and everywhere else in the castle were stunning. The food was amazing and the staff was above and beyond! We would definitely recommend Dalhousie and stay there again!
